I'd guess as a first impression that both were fake. Â The Diesel pair has a store tag (the black and red one) that does not at all look like that of all the Diesel pairs I've seen in stores, and has none of the signature Diesel pocket designs on the rear pockets Â (it looks like --v-- or so on actual Diesels). Â There's a site called Fake Diesel
which would be worth looking at and has more details. The D&G pair also looks off because of the excessive logoing... I don't think they would do the D & G thing on the side tabs of the pants. Â Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think D&G uses red tags on the inside waist. General rule of thumb for me in buying jeans: avoid the more conspicuous, flashy labels (designers and brands like Diesel and Evisu) and stick to more lower-profile denim houses. Â Apparently the majority of Diesels on eBay are fake, but I don't think I've seen any obvious fakes of Paper Denim & Cloth, Rogan, or True Religion, for example.
You nailed it. I've become good at spotting fake Diesels on ebay, but when I checked out that fakediesel website, I was amazed at some of the detail that the fakes now have. Right down to the microtexting on the Diesel size tag. I've also heard similar things about Sevens on ebay. There are also many blatantly fake Gucci jeans. I wouldn't trust Diesel, Prada, Gucci, Energie, or D&G jeans on ebay, unless you've seen several pairs in person, in stores, and know exactly what to look for. For the record, I've never seen a fake pair of PDC, Joe's, Chip & Pepper, or any more obscure denim brand on ebay. I hope that doesn't change soon. BTW, your avitar is rowdy.
