I spent yesterday at Fashion Valley mall trying on all sorts of Diesel jeans. I went to Nordstroms, Neimans, and Jeanery and I have to say I am a little bit disappointed. Not only was the selection very poor, I felt that not even one pair of the new Diesel line could stand up to my friend's Zathan 772 from a few years ago. The new fits were all very nice and flattering, however the jeans themselves appear to have gone down hill. The attention to detail is less, and the back pocket styling is not as desirable. I don't understand, why would a company take a step away from the right direction? I'm not bagging on Diesels intentionally; every jean had a relatively flattering fit. However, I felt like the new pockets were boring and that the washes were prosaic. I tried on a new style Zathan at Nordstroms and while the tiger striping (I believe thats what it is called?) was very nice, it lacked in attention to detail. What happened? Did jeans like the old-style Zathan just become too expensive to manufacture? Or is it that American retailors just don't carry a wide enough selection? Thanks for any insight.
