    Since I live overseas and am totally not in touch with what's going on with streetwear, I have no idea about the quality of this brand. I am interested in knowing about it because I am in desparate need of good jeans and would very much like to get them from eBay, since paying $100+ retail for a pair of any sort of jeans is retarded to me at this point in time. Here's the auction, so you experts can tell me whether it's worth bidding on or not. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....88&rd=1 Also, they have Diesel stores here in Korea. I will take a looksee because I am curious. However I will most likely not buy a single thing because they were absurdly expensive in the states, and probably x2 the price here. Damn you import tax.

    Sacred Blue looks like a cross between Rogan and unsurprisingly Blue Cult. (It's formed by the son of the owner of Blue Cult).

    You could pop it in the same ballpark as Joe's Jeans, Hudson, Citizens of Humanity, Rock n Republic, Yanuk etc.

    Just a bunch of US "premium" jeans brands. Stronger at womenswear IMO.

    You'll probably be able to google up a whole lot pics on each of them.

    Yea it looks pretty much like a run of the mill US premium denim brand. No problem with that if that's what you're going for, although I'm not sure if I'm feeling the back pocket design.

    Well if you guys have any suggestions for a 30" waist (30" inseam preferred) on auctions on eBay then feel free to make them. Like I said, I have no knowledge of US "premium" denim because I haven't lived in the US for like 16 years.

    I like the color, but you might be disappointed if the photos are not very color-accurate. I just received three Penguin polos that I bought from eBay in the mail today that were very different from what I had expected.

    Not really my favorite brand - they are pretty generic jeans - but the price is good. I've seen the model, and the color is the darker, blacker color, rather than the more vibrant blue.

    Check this guy out: http://search.ebay.com/_Mens-C....on70005 I think this guy is selling fake Sevens. Unfortunately I did not realize the Sevens were fake until I won one. I didn't pay for it yet, but I read the honestforum.com stuff on Sevens and realized the following: - Zeroes on bar code don't have slashes through them - Cut number on the tag is stitched, not printed Also the denim looks rough. Can someone confirm the guy as a fake?

    Outside tag is also fake looking. Should be waxy, wrinkled paper, not slick, hard cardboard. I would say it's fake.
