More and more I see Evisu on guys especially rappers for some reason, but I almost never see the brand on girls. You’ve probably all seen the seagull logo at some time or another and in my humble opinion and really I guess a lot of others because they are known as the “Rolls Royce” of jeans, they completely trump Sevens and Rock and Republic.

The super premium jeans are made out of the best quality demin in vintage looms and many of the jean styles still have the logo hand painted on to them, thus their prices range from $150 to $1000 for a pair.

The brand seemed pretty underground for a while but they definitly blew up when they teamed with Puma for both a collaboration called Evisu loves Puma and also selling their own brand in Puma stores across the world.

While their jeans are definitly their staple one thing that people either forget or don’t notice about Evisu is that they also happen to make some of the most unique cutting edge ready to wear clothes out there. One of my prized pieces in my wardrobe is a black kimono pea coat. Its a cropped black pea coat with gigantic kimono sleeves and red sakura lining on the inside of the sleeves and thats still pretty tame compared to some of the other things Ive seen them come up with.

I’m not 100% sure, but I’m overall pretty sure that Literature has changed around their whole line premanently and not for the good. Like Im talking 180 turnaround into suckiness. I was hoping this was like a mid life crisis for the brand and they would find themselves back to their roots of awesome shirts and hoodies, but also it was not meant to be. The only reason Im talking about this brand as obsession worthy is because first of all it was a really awesome brand before they went downhill and secondly if you look hard enough there are still some “vintage” Literature pieces floating around that you can pick up and probably for a lot cheaper than what they charged retail. They were pretty expensive like $185 for a hoodie.

I got super super lucky about 6 or 7 months ago and found this shady little online store that was selling some old Literature pieces for dirt cheap like 15 bucks a hoodie so I snagged as much as possible hoping it was for real and that I wasnt going to totally get ripped off, but luckily a week later I ended up with everything and I can tell you the pieces are even cooler in person and REALLY well made, the hoodies have either asymetrical zippers or gigantic zippers which just look really cool.

So it definitly takes some research to find the old stuff, even ebay doesn’t have too much of it anymore and what they do have is well over a hundred bucks , but Im sure if you want it bad enough its findable. HINT: When Literature changed their style, they also changed their name, The cool stuff is branded as just Literature clothing, the new stuff goes under the name Literature Noir.
