Evisu is still loved!

Recommended Posts

at the end of the day, im fine with it, it's just kind of weird and shady to send me something not advertised (unless i missed something in the google translate)

a couple of questions now:

1. bought a 33, usually a 31/32. just warmed washed these and it shrank quite a bit in the waist - will these stretch out quite a bit?

2. who are you guys using to proxy from the official evisu.jp site?

1. I have yet to experience a pair that does not stretch back to pre-soak in the waist. So the potential is there it will end up at the raw measurements. 

2. FromJapan

The measurements of the current 2001s in no.1 denim is off by a lot. I received a size 38 and the waist is 35.5 raw while the thigh, legs and other measurements are correct based on the website. I have a 2001 in no.1 denim also from around 2012 in size 34 and the waist started bigger than my current size 38. I don't know why evisu sizing is this inconsistent.

@mr.invincible my old pair of redline 2000 #1 stretched easily. Nice denim and preferred it to the tiger selvedge from what I can remember

One could argue why they put a size on them to begin with. So the other dimensions are true to the size chart? What did you do with them and when did you receive them?

The legs and all the other measurements are correct (based on the chart) for the size 38, but the waist is for a size 34-35 so I will have to endure a muffin top when I decide to wear them. My pair is still raw.

Are you going to shrink and take measurements?

Not planed anytime soon but I would expect 2-2.5" shrinkage in the waist (which will stretch back if needed) and at last 3" in the inseam. Based on my past experience with the No.1 denim (although my old pair wasn't Tiger Selvedge).

What are the different No.1 fabrics? I'm looking to buy a pair of 2000s and am kinda confused, are there only the tiger selvedge and red selvedge variations? Or is there also a regular No.1 that is neither of those?

 

Nvm, the No.1 denim changes every season?

The No.1 used to change every year (at least the selvedge ID did).

Then, some years ago they offered the Tiver Selvedge (again) as a stable product. The Red Selvedge was available for some years and you have the Gatagata and Petero as stubby denim options.

And of course you have some special releases like the Hanami Selvedge and No.0 denim (latest issue with pineapple fibers).

I'm kind of on an Evis(u) tear. Snagged a pair of 2001 No. 1s in great condition on Buyee and really struck gold. Rarely do you get a pair that looks less worn than in the photos... And this denim is way lighter than my 2501s that I cannot get over.

Question though for you Evisu-heads (cough @beautiful_FrEaK) or brummy if you are still around, how do you date these post 250x era? The arcs on this are yellowed and appear quite old. Evisu selvage lines are also all over. I've seen traditional red, alternating color, full color, this olive-gray with silver thread, and my 2501s that are black or blue.

Well I guess I should have read the posts above. Is there anywhere that documents this in detail?

Been out the denim game for a while but always fancied a pair of No 1. Struck gold on Vinted. £60.

Someone from this board - @CrashTestBrummie ? - sourced these early Yamane Evisu for my nipper. They were a bit big for him, so they went in the denim box and by the time I remembered them he was too big for them .

So I'd like to pass them on to someone from this board for the purchase price, let's say £15 donation to youngminds plus postage. Make me an offer if that's too much ££££. 25 waist, 30 leg. My guess is they've been soaked once and that's pretty much it. Classic early hairy evis denim. I don't check my PMs that often so feel free to email me.
