Hi Everyone - if you are looking for pair of light blue denim that is also light in weight, look no more. This pair is definitely designed and made for spring and summer time. Today I'm going to do a review on Diesel Thavar 827w, Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
I have been eyeing this pair for few months now, but never really got serious about it until last week. I bought this pair from @giamatshop on here and as many have good experience w/ him.
Moving onto the jeans. They are very light blue denim, with no hint of yellow in them. There's also no white in them as well. I would guess the denim is thin around 8-9oz; made out of 100% cotton, and is Made in Italy. The material is thinner than my Belther 828T. So if you're looking for a thicker heavier denim, this pair is not it. What I really like about this pair is in the details. It has faint rust spots on top of the jeans closer to the belt loops and the pockets. It has a little clear jewel by the coin pocket where Blue Eyecon button usually are located. It has distressings similar to Thavar 886b, except there's no fabric underneath them. So if you accidentally jab your toes you may rip the jeans and make the distress holes larger; so be careful when you slip them on.
Looking at the photos online, you would think the seams and the crotch area is very dark, almost boarder line when you pee'd yourself. But after getting the jeans I dont think its 'THAT' dark.. but below are bunch of fit pics, so you can be the judge =).
Fit wise: They fit like standard how Thavar would fit. I went w/ 29x30 for this pair because I worry my legs don't fit through them if I had gotten a 28. First try on the thighs are great, but calves below the knee is tight; but I expect them to loosen over wear. My waist is okay but I am certain this pair will stretch out 0.5" to 0.75" full size. I worry that the back area will stretch out a bit to sag similar to many of us have experienced with Thavar 886b. I will update everyone once I put some hours in this pair. I am not sure if I would size down on this pair though, I guess it depends on your legs and how Thavar fit you, but I am pretty certain I won't be able to fit into 28x30 in this pair.
Overall I do like this wash a lot, but its niceness is in the details. If you are in the market for pair of light denim, thin and spring/summer feel this pair is it. I also feel like the materials is breathable as in air will flow through them nicely during those spring/summer breezes.
Finally here is a quick photo comparing my light jeans. Left to Right: Shioner 8PN, Thavar 827w, and Braddom 888p.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about this pair. I hope all the photos and this brief review helps. Talk to you guys soon!
