    1. Hey Ros.E. :)

      thx for yr feedback. Please let me know why do you think that DIESEL is the KING of DENIM ???

    2. well because diesel is always the first brand that has to show something new in denim fabrics, I am not talking about every piece they make , but you see every season new fabrics with great details and fits...and I also love the "behavior" of the denim during long time wearing... this is only my opinion ok? I am sure that you know better from the inside..

      tell me though, which is the brand that you think is the best for you with the greatest work on denim?

    3. Thanks for your comment :) I am very suprised about your opinion and your knowledge. Are you a denim expert :D

      You are right, they invest a lot of money in innovation and advertising campaigns. They don´t just sell jeans, but a world of adventure, isn´t???

      Well, you'll see in my next posts, that innovation is very important and makes a large part of the price.

      This is why brands such as Diesel in the high price segment.

      Because that I work with many clients, I would not say who is my favorites :D I'll give you recommendations, but from the perspective of my experience as an denim expert. Otherwise it can goes in different direction, you know!

      I hope you can accept my decision :) Thank you for your understanding.
