      really digging how they faded for you. I was having trouble figuring out the different cuts on the site, what is the baggiest/loosest? i cant fit into any of that straight leg nonsense. really something like a levis STF cut would be great for me I think

      On the IH's it is going to be tough to find something if you don't like the straight leg. Pretty much everything is straight leg or straight leg to taper. They do have a boot cut but boot cut is wack IMO

      i emailed them and they recommended the 1955's - im into it but i cant justify dropping $400 on jeans right now. i get the impression they dont go on sale often either?

      While I will say that Diesel's denim quality is better than 7forallmankind, Joe's, Citizens, TrueReligion (worst jeans on the planet), R&R, etcetcetc. There jeans still are not that great.

      You wanna talk about spending money on real quality jeans go get yourself a pair of Iron Hearts.

      Don't you worry, once upon a time I thought that Diesel's were the end all be all and then I got educated.

      Now I am a true DenimHead...21/23Oz denim FTW
      Fantastic! By the way, it is now a year later and Diesel is still the best.

      occasionally you can find them on sale.

      Lonely...while fit comfort ect are subject to personal opinion it is just fact that Diesel denim is not the best denim out there.

      I need to figure something out for good jeans.

      My gap jeans are fine, but not super comfortable, my 7s are super comfortable but I've had 3 of 4 pairs rip in the 'crotchal' area for no apparent reason. And I don't like spending money to repair jeans that already cost $150+ within a years' time.

      I too do not care for any flash, no stupid back pocket logos, no crazy washes (some whiskering is fine), I don't wear jeans a lot because of work and climate, but I'd like to have one or two pairs of nice, well made, durable, great looking jeans.

      These aren't too flashy:



      Nasty.


      Anyhow, after some jeaneducation, I now wear AGs.
      Some real work goes into these, fit, finish, quality, etc.

      Sooo comfy.

      Protege Straight Leg (more roomy)


      Matchbox Slim (skinny)

      My two favorite Jeans are American Eagle and Express. They are both on the affordable side if you time the sales and what not.

      I've never had a pair wear out in less than 3 years unless I did damage outside of what would be considered normal wear, ie working on a car :p

      My favorite jeans are my 8yr old 7's. I think no matter what brand, the more "broken in" they are, the better.

      Wish i could shop for jeans online, however not trying something on before spending $100-$200+ is just silly.

      Levi guy myself, but I recently found a spot where I can get 7's for $50 all day long. I think I found my new favorites, very comfy and the fit is perfect. My wife always tell to wear them when we go out.

      I always bust through the crotch seam of my levi's so I'll see how these hold up.

      If you have problems with Levis don't hold up hopes on not blowing out the crotch of the sevens. While they are super comfy they are might from very light weight denim which tends to wear through very quickly esp in the inner thigh and crotch area.
