EVISU has been weaving denim on vintage looms in Osaka since 1991, started by Hidehiko Yamane. One of the most recognizable and influential names in Japanese denim. Also widely known as Osaka Five, a collective based in Osaka whom revolutionized the denim world and are responsible for the vintage jeans boom of the 90s. EVISU was named after the Japanese god of prosperity Ebisu, who often portrayed donning a Japanese courtier’s hat and wearing a huntsman outfit, holding a fishing rod in his right hand and a bream in his left, now playfully portrayed on the jeans patch. This name was aptly chosen, since it represents two of Yamane’s favourite things: fishing and money.
Today, EVISU produces not only jeans, but most types of pants. The broad range of items are from classic selvedge jeans to skinny sweat pants and to loud shorts and more. Of couse, they have the iconic paints of Seagull or Kamome on the rear pockets.
