Private Collection.

I used to work at Diesel Jeans back in the days, and the premium line Old Glory was from the first moment very special for me. Handcrafted items which were very rare and expensive. Inspired by the big 3; Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. After a couple of years Diesel got a lawsuit from a company from the U.S.A. which were also using the name Old Glory. After losing this case Diesel changed the name in Max Grade, which meant that the old OG stock was not for sale anymore. For us as staff this was the moment to buy these items for very cheap prices. After 6 years working for this brand I gave away most of my personal collection except the OG collection. My personal collection from this line is quit big, here are two of them. The rest will follow later. Enjoy!
