Introducing Evisu 2001′s in No.1 denim
Evisu’s No.1 denim has been on my wish list for a long ass time. The models using it is quite pricey with a pricetag in Japan going for more than 30 000 yen which threw me off for quite some time. Then I decided to go to Japan next summer and thought that if I should purchase a pair of jeans on the trip a pair of No.1′s would be a good choice. Hence the research of which model to go for and how to size them begun. I didn’t have to research much though – Evisu has changed the inseam length which gives them an inseam of about 31 inches post wash. Too short for me and they apparently have no plans what so ever to change it in the future.
Auctions is your friend
It’s not the first time I’ve resorted to auction hunting. But funny enough I found this pair by chance looking for old Warehouse jackets. It was a bargain price, barely worn, long inseam and I was the only bidder. A week later a pair of Evisu 2001′s, their 50′s cut, dropped in my mail and the denim is so so soft, like the best sweatpants you’ll ever own. I don’t like the grey selvedge-ID but hell, I’m not staring at my feet that often and the two-tone stitching makes up for it too.
It should be mentioned that the color is most accurate on the hardware pictures.
