What do you guys think of quality of diesel clothing besides jeans?

I almost bought these two t-shirts from Diesel today, then I thought "are these worth it?"

I love Diesel's jeans, I think they are definitely worth their price.

But I'm not sure if paying double or triple the amount you would normally pay for cheaper brands for stuff like t-shirts, shirts, even jackets is worth it.

I guess my question is, do you guy think Diesel clothing's price matches their quality? Say, t-shirts maybe?

I mean, if there is not much difference of quality between Diesel and say Gap maybe, why would I buy a Diesel?

I'm strictly asking about the quality of Diesel clothing beside their jeans.

I know their fit or style is way better than cheaper brands.

Someone help me out here!

Me personally....I only like Diesel denim and some jackets. I have had a few shirts, and I didnt see the justification for the price, that I do with the denim.

Whether its worth it or not is a discusion of fair market value. How badly you want something, versus the cost you, and other consumers, are willing to pay.

For what it's worth, I love GAP tee's. I would pay 2x the price for those....see my point?

diesel uses a variety of material in their shirts. some are great, some aren't. they have a few really nice short sleeve t's made out of a super thin cotton i just love. very form fitted to the body. totally hit and miss with shirts and with jackets

Personally I do not own any Diesel stuff other than their jeans which after a few pairs, I have a personal conviction its price-vs-quality justification. sidetracked, compared to some other brandy jeans I owned, I still love Diesel most.

From the design and feel of their lines for Tees, Tops and shoes, I think there are room for improvements. I may probably have a look again at their belts, i do find them appealing. Oh, I have their underpants as well and I do find them comfortable and made with quality in mind.

Crew-tees from Banana Republic are great too and i think they have very flattering cut.

i have TONS of diesel tees and dress shirts, everything down to muscle shirts for working out and I really think the quality is there. If you want to compare to other brands that are the same price range (ill use GStar for example) the quality is there for the price ($60-$100 CAD per tee?).

I have a good amount of GStar shirts and almost ALL of them (including sweaters) have fallen apart by the seams or just random holes and stuff.

Now to compare diesel to say AF or Hollister I would say the quality IS better but by how much? most likely not THAT much. A good A&F Tee will most likely last you a long while but you have to ask yourself WHY you buy designer clothing in the first place.

For me its

1. Quality
2. Comfort
2. Difference

I like the feeling that when I stroll down the street no one else is going to have the same shirt or jeans as me. As the market is flooded with American eagle and its sub brands.

Sounds conceded I know, but it is what it is.

Let me sum up my opinion:
  • JEANS - A++ ..... though some blend fabrics would get only B
  • JACKETS - A+
  • TSHIRTS - B+
  • SHIRTS (WOVEN) - No experience
  • SHOES - A+

Regards!

I don't think the Diesel shoes are worth the price. There are far better options out there that are not only more comfortable, but better constructed and will last longer.

Diesel shoes and Express jeans are one in the same.

Me too most of my Gstar raw shirts after being washed or something they have small holes in them. I thought bugs were eating my shirt lol.

Anyways diesel tees for me i think are getting cheaper. Plus i don't like them anyways only because their designs aren't compelling.

Diesel makes some nice shirts and jackets, more so for their cuts and detailing. Quality is good, and better than Gap for these articles, but definitely not worth retail. For plain solid colored t-shirts, I'd suggest H+M or Zara, the ones with elastine. They keep there shape, good quality and price point.

But, it really depends on your body type and what suits you the best. Having a superior quality made shirt but doesn't fit you well is worthless.

IMO Diesel T's are the best fitting ones for me. Quality and comfort is there, and price seems reasonable for what you are getting. This also goes for Diesel shoes.

The belts are also good quality. I paid retail for my Serie-B belt - almost $300 OUCH! Well worth it though. Probably had that for 1 1/2 years+ and it is still in excellent condition and will probably hold up for as long as I want to wear it.

Their jackets, shoes and bags are good quality to from my experience with them. It depends on how you use them though. I take good care of my stuff so it is pretty much like new (cept my shoes which seem to get trashed LOL) unless I am specifically trying to break it in.

I have a couple of jackets and a belt which are high quality IMO.

The tops I have are more average quality. They do have some interesting designs but I dont think they are better quality than most other cheaper tops / t's.

ps. I'm female

I got a pair of Diesel Solar last year, they are pretty good quality, I got the leather version. The only issue is the narrow sole, it may be a problem with those with wide feet.

I believe Diesel makes great clothing, not just feel! My first Diesel jeans (and clothing) were from the 2008 collections at Adidas Originals, when they did the collaboration -- both Viker & Thanaz, and then later around Xmas that year, I bought a Larkee. All were 30% off at the times/occasions I had bought them. I have only ever bought an inspired-modern motorcycle leather jacket from the 2011 Spring-Autumn collection (Daytona) worth $900 and the odd "Only The Brave" Mohican tshirts from that season and the 15" laptop denim sleeve which came out, at the released retail prices, as well as a few pairs of the Adidas "Colliding Worlds" shoe collaborations -- sold only at Diesel stores, as Aussies like myself, never got such promotion and items. Never have I bought a piece of Diesel clothing at full retail price, since then or before 2011. Always at least 30% off! ?
