Clothing Brand Diesel Ripped Off A Punk Band's Logo For Awful "Metal"-Looking Pants
Higher-end fashion has had a weird relationship with metal over the years. You've got brand like Barneys New York rolling out repurposed Marilyn Manson shirts with Justin Bieber's logo on them for $195, you've got H&M releasing a line of metal logo t-shirts, Gucci rolling out a completely horrendous AC/DC design, and now you've got Diesel just straight up stealing a logo for $348 pants.
Yes, as Punk News points out, Diesel's P-FRANK-PATCH pants have straight up stolen Sheer Mag's logo. Take a look at the purple logo on the pants below and then take a look at Sheer Mag's logo below that and you'll notice a striking similarity. Namely that they're the same thing. Oh, and this is how Diesel described the pants. Buckle up.
These workwear-inspired trousers are made from substantial cotton canvas. The multiple jacquard and embroidered patches express Autumn-Winter's strong and empowering aesthetic, where post-punk influences meet a sporty, utilitarian attitude. The relaxed fit is emphasised by the wide square back pockets and the construction of the waistband, cut to sit straight on the hips. Contrast stitching and the rear buckle complete the look.
At least last time Diesel rolled out something awful they didn't steal anyone's work. Anyway, get the pants here if you don't feel like sewing patches that cost less than $10 to jeans that cost less than $40.
