Firstly the Darron, I wasn't sure on this one but i picked it up for a bargain on eBay(thanks grag!) paid only 200euro for it!!! It was an offer I just could not refuse. When they arrived it was love at first sight. Thick, stiff and rich denim given a heavy 3D evolution treatment. The colour is not far off 8X2 but a couple of shades darker. It also lacks the dirt which turned me off the 8X2. It basically turned into what I wanted from the 8X2 but which the 8X2 failed to deliver. It's thicker than the 8X2 as well. Darron is quite a nice cut, quite slim but comfortable in the thigh and no builders ass when you bend over. Plenty of details on the cut to make this wash/cut combo worthy of the blue eyecons title(the first one since 8X8 if you ask me). Don't get me wrong, for those of you who suffer through these rambling reviews know how big of a fan I am off the blue eyecon washes and recent ones are stellar, 881Z, 805A and 888P to name a few but they haven't been unique like the 8X8 was. The 803W is by new means unique but like its recent predecessors it is a beautiful, versatile jean that can be worn a hundred different ways.
Round two on this wash, tried it in Safado but since recent weight loss and even more recent illness Safado just does not suit anymore. Such a pity beacause I quite liked the wash so I decided to try tepphar for the first time. It was not what I was expecting. I thought it would be very tight all over, but it's quite comfortable, rise is slightly higher than thanaz and this has made for a quite comfy jean. Hem is quite narrow, about an inch tighter than thanaz. So when I tried them on it was not a good fit until tried on with footwear then this cut turns totally awesome. They stack like a BOSSSS!!!!! And this wash which is without 3D stacking so they look great over shoes and turned up to reveal that red under dye makes these a cool wash in this cut. The denim is quite thin and a little flimsy and this can make look and feel them quite cheap but this happens quite a bit in lyocell blends. But the blend is very strong as lyocell doesnt stretch(but cotton does so it will stretch but the higher the lyocell count the less the stretch). It is a navy fade wash with lots of black spots and a wire brush applied to the left leg like the 74Y wash. And of course, the red exposure underneath gets my juices flowing, but to be honest if it didnt have this I wouldn't probably look at it twice.
Lastly I picked up a diesel iPhone case. Its cool, hard plastic coated in a plastic leather-ette. The inside is lined with velveteen emblazoned with "for succesful living". Cool case which comes in two pieces which fits snugly over the phone with raised edges to protect the screen and the velveteen stops the phone from getting scratching when taking on and off.
Thank you for reading these rather self indulgent ramblings but 10 days in a hospital bed have tested my resolve and boredom has gotten the better of me.
