^^ Ha, May be you're right, Never seen such pairs...always morocco or Tunisia on the tag or Italy. Besides we talking about Slammer 8BI, they must be made in Italy !

What reputable source of information are you using to say all Slammer 8BI (or any model for that matter) is all made in Italy only?

There are models that are made in multiple countries. I believe 8AT is one that was discussed here recently that was made in both Italy and another country.

^^ I said 8BI and not 8AT.....Like I said never seen 8BI that not made in Italy (and I've seen quite a few). Only fakes like this one, plus I've never seen real Diesel with out any country on the tag. Thats all.....its all from personal experience !

Thanks, I asked for a reputable source not your personal experience. From my personal experience (selling thousands of pairs of Diesel and auth checking tens of thousands) you are incorrect.

Its missing the "R" for registered trademark before the "D" in Diesel.
Not every pair has the "R" on them. I just did a quick check of some pairs I have laying around here and 2/6 pairs I checked do not have the "R" on them...

The pairs were both made for markets other then the US. I don't know for sure but I am going to say jeans made for the European market probably do not have the "R".

Yeah, that is true, I was just giving him another reason of why the coin strip looks off, though I think most fakes lack that "R". It looks as if the 30th XXX jeans are missing the "R" from the pics I've seen as well.
