8X2

Love 811P, great summer wash. 8X2 is nice but overrated.

8x2 is too dirty, my vote for 811p

8X2

 

811P is too much of a fake blue for me

8x2. yes they are dirty but quality much better. denim is nice thick and sturdy.

811p will prob be forgotten about in 2-3 years while 8x2 is a classic and will be remembered like 772 is.

My advice would be to pick the pair you personally like the best. There is always a lot of talk about washes which will always be remembered or described as 'classic' but what does that really mean? Unless your a member of this forum, its just another pair of jeans to everyone else. Both are beautiful in their own way.
Hope people dont take my response the wrong way. 😀

to me classic means it'll hold up longer and is not too trendy only lasting a few years before looking ridiculous or having aged poorly.

but yes i agree. ultimately it's your decision. ive never understood people asking others what to get. get whatever one grabs you the most and you feel you'd get the most enjoyment out of.

Fair point @freeradical82. Yep that is the best way to look at it, the two are completely different washes so get whatever you like the most.

Remember: 811p looks brilliant AND you can wear them at the office and your grandmas birthday… but never with a 8x2.

I apologize for bringing up this old thread, and I know people suggested sizing down in both Thavar 811P and 8X2. My question to all who own both is should I get the same size in both or does one run even larger than the other. Thanks in advance.

With 811P you need to size down 1 not for 8X2. I wear 30 X 32 in 811P and 31 X 32 in 8X2 if that helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is your 811P waist measurement the same as your 8X2? Reason why I'm asking is I found a pair of 8X2 on eBay in the same listed size as my 811P, but the actual waist measurement that the seller provided is almost an inch bigger than the actual measurement of my 811P. I wish Diesel sizes are more consistent from wash to wash and from cut to cut especially since there are no Diesel stores within 400 miles of where I live so trying them on is impossible.

My 8X2 measured as 42 Cms in the waist and 811P Measured as 41.7 Cms. With my 811P every time i wear it, initially its tight and after 20 Mins they just stretch nicely to my waist.

I see. Thanks again.

Hey, I have just found a great deal for Thavar 811P in my size and its very tempting. But luckily i found this thread on time.

I just wanted to ask why do I need to size down on 811P? I mean does it stretch out a lot, or it comes a bit big?

post #21 of 27

They just come bit big in the waist.

oh, seems like its not for me then... I already have too much space in the waist, if I size down I won't be able to fit my fat thighs in W30...
thanks!

They do run tight in the thigh area so maybe not good for you.

I've been reading through the old 888P club thread, love that wash. This is one for Phukette - do the Braddom 888P have a shorter inseam like the Thavar do?

Thavar's inseam is not short, it's actually longer than usual inseams in the same size

 

And no, I think Braddom comes shorter than Thavar.

So if you have a Thavar in L32 and a Braddom in L32, then your Braddom will be a bit shorter. (my own opinion, not 100% sure about this, based on my experience)
