Review: Belther 816B!!! best pair of Khaki color jeans I've seen.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys - so flew into San Fran today and first stop is obviously flagship Diesel store in Union square.  They had most of the stuff available today, the usuals new thavar's thanaz and tepphar 602s etc etc.  But i was on the mission, specifically for Belther 816B.  and They just got them in last Friday.  so here it is.

 

When I first saw them i was like they are beautiful.  The caramel color along w /the dirt marks like the Thavar 801D washes, plus 3D wrinkles and distress holes.   I have been looking for some khaki color jeans but most of the previous ones (8QU, 811c, etc etc) lacks something.  816B combines best of all the different washes; 801D dirt, 8QU wrinkles and 811c color.

 

The jean material itself feels quite similar to 8QU.   They are quite stiff, but I suspect will loosen up after few wears.  I would not size up or down.  These here are 28.  I tried 27 and could not fit through them.

 

They are fairly comfortable, the thighs are not super tight like new Thavars fit on me.  Knees down I find them wrap similar to my Braddom's.  the back pocket is very low, similar to the Krooley cut but without the extra flap.  I quite like these.  They do give similar look to Nudie Thin Finn's low yoke, low back pocket. 

 

here are the photos.  Fit pix taken at store.  I'm working out in San Jose this week so will post better fit pix when I can.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

It seems that when the light hits it just right, they have a green tint to them. Love it:)

Hi Audit30 - no this was the only one.  there were 2 other washes in Belther cuts but they were non MII.  just standard blue's, nothing too special.

 

I was able to try on Tepphar 602s and Thanaz 813z, Thavar 814M & 816K.  Also tried on older 810x and 811p (which I love, will try to get one).

 

But out of all I really like Belther 816B so bought them full retail.. don't let the fiance know yet!

816K looks really good on the table.  But when I wore it something just doesn't look natural.  I quite like my 68z over 816K since they both share that similar rip on the thigh....

Hi Dieselicious - hmmmmm only Darron I ever owned was 64U, which got supre stretched out... probably not a good comparison.  I do want to get some new Darron's this season or maybe 809v blue eyecon from last.  I'll be able to make better comparison later.

Hello - no I wouldn't.. unless you want a more loose baggy fit. which I did.  I normally wear 28s but I got 29's on this partly also because its only size  i could find.   but they are not as loose as tepphar 804k.  so my 804k 28x32 fits same as 68z 29x32.  and at same time my 68z 29x32 fits loose compared to my 880r, 881w all in 28x32.

 

hope this helps!
