Spotting Fake Diesel Jeans

Yet another famous brand of jeans that are faked all of the time. There are plenty of unscrupulous sellers and retailers claiming to have excellent deals on Diesel jeans. Buying fakes can happen to the best of us. When I was new to buying online, I fell victim on several occasions. If you are interested in buying Diesel jeans online, it's important to read some of the tips below to make sure you don't get bamboozled.

#1 Retail sites claiming to have wholesale deals


There are often overseas retailers and sellers claiming to have gotten wholesale orders and deals on Diesel jeans. These people are trying to take advantage of innocent buyers. These retailers are trying to unload fakes by the dozens and cart load. It's a big business and someone is getting fooled. Do your research. There are authorized retailers that sell Diesel jeans and they do not sell wholesale. These jeans retail for over 200$ a piece.

#2 Bad quality fabric

Spotting fake Diesel jeans via fabric inspection is quite easy when you know what to look for. Diesel is made with a thinner material but it's high quality. They are made to last. Fakes are thicker and often in a different coloring. You can tell by touch and feel that they aren't the real thing.

#3 Read the Label


Authentic Diesel jeans have an Indian head on the label and it reads "DIESEL-ONLY-THE-BRAVE-DIESEL". Beneath that tag is one with the washing instructions. It has the country of manufacture listed on that tag. Countries that may be listed are Tunisia, Romania, Italy, and Morocco. Make sure any labels have clear print and there are no misspellings.

# 4 Distinct logo on buttons

There is a distinct logo on the buttons of most Diesel brand jeans. If it looks different from the originals, there is a good chance they are faked. Some of the fakes have terrible copies of the logo on them and aren't engraved properly. If you look closely enough, you can see the difference.

# 5 Analyze Your Seller


If you are on a site like Ebay, you may run into a seller that has catalog pictures. That is a huge red flag! That means they are either lazy or dishonest. Real photos of the actual jeans are the only way to be sure you are buying real Diesel premium jeans. If the seller has no or negative feedback, don't risk it. Your money is not worth risking it.

Buying premium denim jeans online is a lot of fun for the bargain hunter. I love finding great deals on high quality jeans and saving some money. I'm sure you do too. However, getting taken for a ride is possible. Before I had realized it, I got duped a few times. I was way too eager to buy the best deals. I honestly had to make some mistakes before I educated myself. I am hoping that by posting this I can help educate you. Trusting people online is something that is earned, not given. You don't know who is on the other end of the computer. Finding a reliable seller or retailer is essential when hunting for premium denim. If someone sells you the real deal, use them again and again if you have to.


Don't Let 'Em Get Away With It!

If you find a seller trying to sell knockoffs as the real thing, turn 'em in! Don't let them get away with it. If no one turns them in, someone else will end up getting scammed. It's important to let these scammers know that we won't tolerate being victims. If you see a seller on Ebay doing it, report them. Ebay doesn't tolerate sellers that try to sell fakes. They have zero tolerance for things like that--so report them and rest assured they will be penalized.

Retailers overseas are notorious for selling counterfeit jeans. They are often done poorly overall and try to charge high prices too. They often sell fakes for a fraction of the retail price of the real thing, but for a major mark up over their cost. It usually only costs them 5$ to make a fake pair of jeans, but they turn around and sell them for a huge profit. They know full well they are selling fakes and they hope that people are naïve enough to fall for it. Unfortunately, people do fall for it. Don't feel bad if you've fallen victim to it yourself. It has happened to me too. Knowledge is power, though, and having the tools to catch a fake pair of designer jeans will be your best asset when shopping online. Deals can be found, no doubt, but being smart about it is the best strategy. Good luck shopping!
