One of the worst things about some of these is the fact Evisu, and some other brands, have made multiple equally awful pairs.....  Which means enough people bought the first round to justify another.  Tragic.

Evisu (as one of the Osaka 5 and a co-founder of the japanese denim revival) took a very strange way in the last decade - embarrassing and tragic   :-\

But one should always differ between Evisu Japan and Evisu International.
That said, Evisu had "always" very questionable designs in their offerings, not only in the last decade. They are around for 24 years I think. Enough time for crazy stuff ;D

Yep there is some sort of a backstory behind this. There is / was Evisu J, Evisu International and Evisu EU. And the later two went very different paths design and.... wise to the JP one...

not really, these are classic advertising pants used by rodeo clowns / riders to promote the brand(s) (Wrangler / Blue Bell did that too) in the 50s / 60s...

The historical aspect is there, no doubt, but I still think wearing one of these as a pair for your leisure time looks silly. If one's not a rodeo-clown of course.

^I was about to say the same thing.  When someone asks you about your jeans do you say, "it's a tribute to 50's rodeo clowns, which are my style inspiration."
