To me, the key defining characteristic was that the closure button at the waist was bronze.
The jeans that I have both are black.
Today I thought I would pop by my local (not so local) Diesel outlet store. Low and behold they also carried surplus G-Star products. And what should be hanging on one of the racks?
And there they were. Well at waist size 29 they are too small for me. I didn't buy them.
I took a few more pictures for identification purposes. And for you rabid fans you, I took down all the numbers on the tag. The sales associate told me they are discontinued. (Well we knew that) But I guess it's nice to know its the truth.
On close inspection the back pocket G-STar signature swoosh is a different colour than either of me own two Blade slim jeans. This is a cream sort of colour, not dark grey or white.
So there you go, I found them. Perhaps the last pair ever.
If you felt so inclined to want them I wouldn't mind popping back out there, but no promises, they might have vanished.
