I agree, I like their products better, however for longevity, go with Diesel. You can't destroy that denim (if it's the heavier varieties), while ES are somewhat delicate. Personally, I find the Levan too wide, and I like the Viker much, much better. The wash is alright, and, in fact, looks just like the Nudie Regular Ralf Second Hand I just received today.
All that said, for the money, I'd look for the 5EP washed jeans in the non-selvage (which I believe are considerably less expensive than the selvage).
