A Closer Look: Diesel Black Gold Fall/Winter Collection for MenFor men who enjoy wearing high-quality denim, there are a few labels and designers that truly resonate. True Religion, for example, has an excellent track record for creating some of the finest jeans on the market, as does Seven for All Mankind. It is Diesel, however, that is considered by many to be above and beyond one of the best brands for men’s denim, especially given the fact that their jeans stay within a price-range that is relatively reasonable (at least in comparison to many other high-end labels). Diesel’s Black Gold collection takes their approach to high-quality denim and applies it to a variety of different types of pieces, making it one of the most cohesive collections of pieces on the market today. Consider the following aspects of the Diesel Black Gold fall/winter 2012, all of which make it worth looking into.
Dark Earth Tones
There’s no getting around the fact that Diesel clothing has a “look” all its own, and their fall/winter collection for 2012 builds upon the look that defines the company so well. The “urban chic” style found in Diesel clothing is mainly characterized by the line’s usage of dark earth tones; blacks, dark-greys, chocolate browns and rusts all pop up in the line. This is the perfect look for men who live in cities and find themselves trekking down the chilly streets on a regular basis. Another aspect of dark earth tones that makes them worth pursuing in fashion is that they are quite easy to pair with other pieces; you can go with light-colored pants and an earthy jacket to create a very attractive contrast, for example. The more earth tones in one’s wardrobe, the better.
Slim, Fitted Sweaters
When people think of Diesel, sweaters typically aren’t what come to mind. This being said, Diesel’s fall/winter 2012 collection is rife with slim, fitted sweaters that are sure to take any guy’s wardrobe to the next level. Sweaters such as the Kanfin incorporate horizontal lines and a splash of color (red in this case), while the Kornelio-Boom takes the argyle turtleneck into a completely different world. The one thing that almost all of these sweaters have in common is the fact that they are slim and fitted in design; a huge part of the overall look and feel that Diesel goes for with their clothing.
Standout Piece - LordBairon Leather Jacket
No profile of Diesel clothing would be complete without mentioning one of their leather jackets. The LordBairon leather jacket is two-toned, with the sleeves being lighter in color than the body to create a very interesting contrast. Constructed out of 100% lambs leather, it’s difficult to find a piece that exudes more quality than this. With two side-pockets, there is plenty of room for storage in this piece, although its streamlined design almost calls for leaving them empty. It’s far from inexpensive at approximately $1,150, but those who are seeking one of the finest leather jackets in the world likely don’t care very much about price.
