    I have a pair of the Evisu Genes that are Selvedge with a distressed look and small intentional rips here and there. They look like distressed PRPS jeans to be honest and if it weren't for the white logo on the rear pockets I wouldn't be posting this. They fit me just right but I don't know if they're still in or not. They're about 5 years old but they look cool. I could try to remove the logo with some carb cleaner becuase I think they're painted on or printed. Any thoughts?

    You might be able to pull it off. but in general, for the jeans you described, don't do it

    Evisu's fine (they do have some good jeans) just not ones like the one you just described

    post pics since it seems they do make some stuff that's ok.

    what's totally missing is the context like what else you wear and the people you hang out with, which (blasphemy I know) is more important than internet dudes.

    +1 on the "context being (more) important" notion.

    If your friends wore excessively distressed jeans I don't think that it would make it look any better if you were to

    wear what you want to wear and stop being a sheep.

    I wear evisu every now and then. I have the most amazing pair of 8oz for the summer and they drape just right. So while the denim nerd are sweating their balls off , all grouchy. I am cool and smooth while talking to the ladies.
