EBay is a great place to get premium jeans at a reduced price but one thing you have to be extra careful about is fakes. EBay does not actively police every auction and therefore it is reasonably easy to put counterfeit items up for sale. Here (courtesy of eBay) is what to look for if you want to be sure you are buying genuine Diesel jeans.

Micro-Stitching: Below the ‘Made in Italy’ marking, there is silvery white stitching that when you look closely will say ‘Diesel’.

Small Numbers: Tiny, hard to read numbers appear above the Indian head tag inside authentic jeans

Distress and rip marks: Authentic Diesel jeans are hand-distressed while fakes are typically created by machine. Due to this, fake jeans distress marks may appear less-realistic and more like scratches or precise rips.

  1. FYI..The coin pocket Diesel logo is always slanted and not straight across. And- the newer styles have Italy’s flag colors somewhere on the denim.

  4. I just got brand new diesel jeans on ebay for $16.00. I bid so I got lucky, but they still have the tags from the store on them and they were $270.00!!! They fit very tight but I am just finding out that diesel runs small. Next time I’ll go a size up. But SIXTEEN DOLLARS?!! The girl said she closed her denim boutique so that’s why she has so many new jeans that still have tags on them. She has a bunch of others on there too! I was worried that they may be fake, but I took them to a shop that sells diesel downtown and they said they’re real, they’re just a year old! I don’t know about other sellers on there, but she’s got good stuff that I now know is authentic and such good prices. It’s cjame94 I don’t know if she has an ebay store or just sells individually. But that’s the seller they’re listed under. That’s where I’m going to look first for my denim in the future! Her name is Cj.
