Older Diesel stuff was really good.Now it's boring and over priced.

Diesel isn't a 'designer' brand in my books, and thus, shouldn't have the quality of its products compared to high end designer houses.

For what it's worth though, for an upmarket high street brand, the quality is very, very good. I recently visited a Diesel store and had a good look at most of the pieces on display (namely outerwear), and the build quality is excellent. What other brand of Diesel's 'level'/target market uses Lampo zippers?

I admit it does vary, for all the Italian made jackets and jeans (IMO also the best for such a price level in terms of denim/cotton quality, cut and variety of washes), there are the cheaper t-shirts made elsewhere, but on the whole, i'm extremely pleased with what/where Diesel is right now.

I don't buy their clothes any more but it brings back memories from when i used to buy into the brand as a teenager aged 15/16 :p

It's original and precise at the same time.

Diesel jackets aren't shabby, althought for the same price point I prefer G-Star.

The Diesel Denim Gallery is pretty cool to visit too, as they have many interesting ways of treating jeans displayed

Most of the designer shades are made by Safilo & Luxottica, and the rest are De Rigo and Marcolin.

I saw these Diesel jeans marked down from $399 (I think...) to $100 today. I was planning to go back tomorrow and buy them, but after I've read this thread, maybe I should buy something else.

Do diesel jeans run big or small or are they pretty standard?

Diesel has gone down hill the last couple years but I'd still consider myself a minor-fan. They have some cute stuff every now and then and are quite affordable... I like their accessories more often than the clothes, though. I think their jeans are okay but yes, quite overpriced.

The best jeans I ever tried on, in my opinion. I'm a loud, proud, Diesel fan.

I love their jeans. I love how they fit. They're just different from the rest that I have. I'm a denim addict. I have, True Religion, 575, Citizens of Humanity, Chip & Pepper, 7 jeans, Earnest Sewn, Rock & Republic, Antik etc.......

Believe me folks, Diesel has the best Fit!!! don't believ the haters here, I got 15 pairs of diesel, I love their Zathan the best.

gotta say diesel used to have some good stuff out but i have to agree with the majority and say the designs are getting repetitive, and no longer daring.

but it seems a lot of people hate because they feel they have to.

I absolutley love Diesel. 90% of my wardrobe is all Diesel. I like the way their t-shirts fit as well as their jeans. I'm a huge fan of Diesel as I have been for many years now. Price wise I think it isn't too bad, it is reasonable.
