    ^^I am guessing those are from Diesel Denim Gallery...


    Im not really familiar with those but if im spending that much on jeans the only brand that really sticks out in my head is Kohzo

    ^^^ All the 150 dollar kratts ive bought 7 years ago and worn for years have been holding up. Not a single hole or anything. I used to rotate them for a few years. There branding and fading sucks now a days but the quality is still very good. Just because you guys love japanese denim companies and hate True Religions doesnt mean Diesel quality should suck

    IIRC, wasn't diesel one of the first premium denim makers (along w/gloria vanderbuilt, aka anderson cooper's mother)?

    They're not my cup of tea, but it think all the 'hate' for diesel here is party because they're fairly mainstream, and partly due to the product.

    Haha I remember in grade school when all the kids lusted over Guess jeans. If you had the ? mark on your pocket you were hot shit and went for a super premium $75 which was unheard of for most kids who grew up with their parents buying $20 levis.

    I agree about the denim quality of most of their jeans. The lighter weight ones feel kinda crappy, but if they still made the Kratt, and had the branding as subtle as they used to (it may be easily recognized, but it certainly wasn't gaudy), I'd still be buying them. I have one pair of Diesels I still wear (though not as much as some other jeans), they're a pair of Vikers in a super dark blue that looks almost like it's raw or coated with resin. I like the fact that they have a bit of stretch, I fly a lot and they're an ideal travel jean.
