I had the opportunity to visit the Diesel store in San Francisco to try on several of the new washes. The one jean that really caught my eye and I think is the wash of the season is Thavar 829B – a blue eyecon. This is exquisite Diesel denim. It’s about a 10 ounce weight denim in a cotton lyocell blend. There are so many interesting details to this wash. The color is a gorgeous combination of indigo integrated with washed out denim and denim colors. They all flow together so nicely to make a pair of jeans that really stands out. There is some distressing in the thighs, below the knee, and also on the side of the jean, but all very tastefully done. In addition, there are some very nice 3D effects in the upper thighs and wrinkles throughout. You have to really see this denim in person to truly appreciate how special it is. Each pair is a bit different as you can see in the side-by-side comparison of 2 pairs of 829B below. One pair has stronger indigo hues in the upper part of the jean and the second pair has more of the washed-out denim coloring.
The fit is really nice on these jeans. Bccause of the lyocell, its not too tight in the thighs and the fabric feels very comfortable. You won’t have to break these in at all. You should be able to stick with your standard Thavar size. In addition, you’ll also notice that 829B has some wonderful stacking that will make your legs stand out. I’ve also included some shots of the lower part of the leg of the jean. If you look closely, you can see some lines towards the bottom. In real life, these are subtle details that add to the jean.
I think this is a versatile wash that can be worn with a lot of different colored shirts – white, black, grey, and even a navy blue. I actually plan to wear these to work once I buy them. Cost is $368 currently so a fair amount of cash. For me, 829B is the complete package – a beautiful wash, great fit, and distinctive look.
Notice the difference in the coloring and hues between both pairs. The darker one also has more wrinkles.
Man, I love the details in these jeans and superb stacking.
