Jeans is the best known product group of the brand Diesel. They are available for men and women and offered in different styles, colors and washings.
Jeans are a special type of trousers that are made from denim. Due to their special importance, Diesel has an own product group "Denim" for jeans, while other types of trousers are included in the product group "Trousers" (British English) or "Pants" (American English).
Jeans do not only differ from other trousers in the material used, but also in the style. The most important difference in the construction of jeans is the yoke, consisting of two tapered pieces of fabric inserted at the top of the back of the jeans. It allows the fit to be tighter at the waist than at the hips, without using pleats or darts. Further, jeans have patch back pockets, and the front pockets generally have a more horizontal pocket mouth as common with trousers. The edges of the front pockets are provided with rivets.
Jeans generally extend from the waist to the ankles and have long trouser legs covering the entire legs of the human body. However, jeans are also available as "shorts" with trouser legs ending above or shortly below the knee. Despite of being made from denim, too, those denim shorts are not included in Diesel's product group "Jeans", but in the product group "Trousers". Also trousers that have the construction of jeans but are made from different materials than jeans, for example jean cut corduroy trousers, are included in the product group "Trousers".
Jeans by Diesel have some specific features by which they can be distinguished from jeans of other brands. Among them are:
- the back patch with some kind of Diesel logo
- the back pocket with an "eagle" embroidery
- the 5th pocket (watch or coin pocket) having a diagonal band with the inscription Diesel Industry Denim Division and a D logo
- waist button (and possibly fly buttons) with "Diesel" embossing
- pocket rivets with "Diesel" embossing
By abrasion during use, the white core of the weft threads of the denim appears under the dyed surface so that the color of the fabric fades. This gives used denim jeans a unique look. Especially, the surface abrasion achieves the following effects:
Such a used used look, including the special effects, may also be achieved by different washings durcing the production, from a simple stone-wash process up to the extensive treatment for Blue Eyecons jeans.

For most of the styles of Diesel jeans, the color is mainly blue in different washings.
Next to the color, the visual appearance of a jeans is mainly determined by the washing. Washing not only influences the overall shade of the jeans, but also may cause special efects to make the jeans look mor or leass worn, for examples bleached parts at the thigh, whiskers at frontal top side of the jeans or honeycombs at the back of the knees.
