Sounds like this guy was filled with crap to justify that price. Come on! A family in Italy! Who are they fooling??!!

shop assistants have received instruction from diesel to deceive buyers. Family in Italy makes jeans hands and only at daybreak, when the first rays of the sun. Just +200 euros after these words

Yeah, it's my family.

We are the keepers of the ancient art of making dirty greeny expensive as fuck jeans.

My village is located on the Tiber river and it's called Rome.

We live by hunting, fishing and tailoring.

We are almost 3 millions but we still make only 4 jeans a day, 'cause we are really lazy.

If you don't buy that jeans, probably a child here, who is living in the mud of an Hut, will not receive an Xbox One for Christmas.

Think about it.

Here is a pic of Sleenker_824P, the change room was very narrow so i can't take more-better pics.This pair fits very comfort despite it's soo skinny.It has 93% or 94% cotton i think and the other is spandex and elastine.Sleenker fit like Tepphar imo (especially like 880r,881w,887v) but it is a little bit narrower at the calves and leg opening nevertheless it's as comfort as tepphars.The wash is similar to 8x2 and the price is reasonable for a MII pair.I'll wait to see sleenker 824Z or tepphar 827Y irl too but 824P is a must have pair ! ! !

there is a lots of new denim on diesel europe, but nothing special
post #434 of 1068

That's the thing - I can't decide to keep my 8x2 or buy new 824p..... .. I'm also waiting for 824z..

@ El-nino : Did you size up from your regular tepphar size?

post #437 of 1068

ipaul: No.i stay in my regural size 28x30 because i like this super skinny fit..I can say that they fit like tepphars

post #438 of 1068

Good,I'm a tepphar guy myself.Btw,the fit is amazing.

post #439 of 1068

does anyone know if 824Y(one of the best washes of S/S 2014 imo) will come in Belther cut? Or just Darron and Shioner for now?

post #440 of 1068
Probably only darron and shioner

lol is that right? I work at a Diesel store, and I have been instructed no such thing.  Everything the guy said is true except for the part about the one family in Italy.  I don't know anything about that, but the rest is true.  The jeans are amazing! They are for sure my favorite pair I own.  My store received  only one each of sizes 28 through 34, and we are completely sold out, and we will not be getting any more in.  There will be zero replenishment.  How can you justify the price? Completely made in Italy, this is a waxy stretchy pair with some rips and the color is also difficult to maintain, etc. Hmmmmm, what else could go into the cost of that jean? oooooh! How about paying employees, paying rent for the store, paying for shipping from Italy to America, import taxes, export taxes, paying the person who made the jeans, paying for advertising, oh and the company does have to make a profit!

lol why do you have to choose between the two of them? 8x2 for sure, though, as long as they still look how they did when you bought them.  If you've been washing them, and the original color has been compromised, then go ahead and get the 824p, i suppose.

I really likes your enthusiasm, but I think he meant how the price can be justified when other made in Italy jeans costs 210-250 euros but this one is 340...

In America, it costs $400, but that's in dollars.  Are you talking about Euros?

You really have to go in the store and feel and try on the denim for yourself to see why they charge this much.  They used to make 88z in Italy, but it takes so little to make that jean that it only cost $160.  When Diesel employees are first hired, we go through training that explains why certain jeans are so expensive.  First of all, each jean is made by hand.  When you see a jean with a lot of color fading, it takes several stone washes.  All abrasions in your jeans are done by hand.  Some jeans take 3-4 days to complete.  Admittedly, there are some jeans that come in that I do not feel are worth the price, but the tepphar 823d are not one of them.  They are an awesome pair of jeans, and if my store is sold out, obviously the people who have come in and tried them on feel the same way.  As an employee of Diesel, I hope I can be helpful to you all :)

 

p.s. for those of you looking at stock pictures of the tepphar 823d, they do not do the jeans justice.  I posted my own photos a couple of pages back, so check there for accuracy.

Yes. I mean, here in Italy that's the price.

 

And i agree on the fact that you have to see the jeans in person to understand why it's so expensive.

post #450 of 1068
When i bought mine, I wasn't looking to purchase anything going in. And my believe to the "limited edition" is just more of a sell gimmick, a reason to charge more, blah blah blah.

But after seeing it in person, trying it on, I was sold even with the high price tag. I highly recommend to check it IRL
