    You can always get it chain stitched at the same length. I've done that before.

    0001 fit I think, and yeah they were a kind of nod to Levi's. Check the inseam length though because they have been hemmed.

    New old stock Lazy S jeans picked up last year. The snow is very unseasonal.

    Notoriously unreliably! A lot of people size down half a size on the mocs from what I can tell but I have one foot wider than the other so I either go TTS or size up half a size depending on what I'm looking at and what's been available. I often wear an insole in my left boot to compensate for the extra room on one side. Best bet would be to ask about specific models in the boots thread on here - but for the Maine Guide Boots, you could down size a bit if your feet are normal width. Triads have some good stuff in their sale at the moment amongst other sites - because of the price of them it's fairly easy to find older stock at reduced prices online.

    I got them brand new off eBay for £225 from another SuFu member, LFC4EVA. Best bet for Yuks if you live in the UK or Europe is to buy them from the States when reduced. Even when you get hit for customs it saves you a decent wedge.

    Bang on the money, matey! Cracking pair of boots. I've got a couple of pairs. Rate them highly.

    Grail jeans right here. Wrangler 'Brown Box' repros released a good for years ago. Broken twill green caste denim.

    They used to have a few pairs in the old Evisu HQ on Savile Row, mate. Saw them when I popped down there a couple or three times back in the day. The denim felt different to me too, and they had totally different designs to the Evisu Heritage stuff at the time. Seem to remember that they used dragons on the jeans quite often too - seen a few pairs on eBay UK over the years and they still crop up from time to time. I couldn't tell you if the Evisu Paris was part of the standard Evisu International range or not, but as far as I know there was only one company licensed to use the name outside of Japan so they might have been France exclusives within that framework. The Evisu shop on Savile Row also carried a few MiJ pieces (at massively inflated prices) so I wouldn't assume that the Evisu Paris jeans' presence there was definite confirmation that they were part of the International set up. In other news, I've had the deadstock Brown Box jeans and the almost deadstock Lazy S jeans altered to fit better. I'll try and get some pics over the weekend before I send them off to get hemmed.

    Aha, stranger! Long time...hope you're keeping as well as the other old heads who have popped up recently!

    I think they are the two best pairs that Evisu International ever produced, to be honest. I'm very, very happy to have both in my life again haha. Think I'm gonna get the Lot 0200 Leepros altered to fit better too and then I'm all set for next year I've not been to Shanghai, although I would like to see it. I lived in Tianjin back in the day so close to Beijing too. And yeah that photo was at the Shaolin Monastery haha, it was starting to become a tourist trap back then and apparently it's a lot worse now...

    Isn't 2005 slim enough for you?
  12. Evisu is still loved!

    You should, Paulo; even when I've not been active on here I've always been wearing top notch Japanese denim haha. I need to start thinking about budget for a trip and get planning, really.
  13. Evisu is still loved!

    Yeah, mate, you got the Yamane Deluxe and brown box jeans from me a few years ago. The denim on the YDs was beautiful man, just way too slim fitting for me! I also sold a pair of 32 brown boxes around the same time and for the life of me can't remember why, because I've been craving a pair even since. I've gotta good local alterations tailor who I'll be using to reshape the ones I've just landed to have the top block of a 32" lot 0005 and the taper of a 30" 0005. Will get that done soon and these will be loved next year! I'm thinking of a trip to East Asia next year myself - probably Hong Kong and mainland China though. I lived in north China for a bit back in the early 90s so would be a trip down memory lane for me. Would be mind blowing to combine it with a trip to Japan though...

    Nice jeans, Devilva! Found my grail and they arrived this morning. Will need some alterations as slightly larger than what I would have gone for if these were still available. Brown box Wrangler repros in that beautiful green caste denim from a few years ago. Also some pics of the mizuhiki jeans in the same denim that I've had for years. These are on the verge of falling apart now. Patched with finest English tweed!

    Missed my old Lazy S jeans so went on a hunt for a pair. Ended up finding two pairs, one in the 0005 fit that they did for the European market and one in the 0200 fit that was sold in the States. The 0005 jeans were mine for the fine sum of one single American dollar! These are a 30 waist but the 0005 model is vanity sized. No pics yet of the 0200 model but they're large in the waist for me and a much looser cut overall. Not sure what I'm going to do with them yet.
