I found some nice plain-pocket "No.1" evisu on ebay, and the seller has a good feedback rep, and the buttons and material look legit, but instead of the little godhead/lot#/waist size back patch, there's one that looks like this:



What's the deal? Is it indicative of a fake, or a european edition, or just some new (ugly) trend in evisu patches?

That's a "1" not a "3." It looks funny because of the way it's written on the curve of the "S."

32" x 10%= 3.2" which sounds believable.

Regardless, that label looks fake. Would evisu really write godawful instructions on a patch like that?

I don't know, Who, looks an awful lot like a 3 to moi. If it was a "1" it would be the same size as the "1" in 100. If you look closely the 3 is 1.5-2 times taller than the 0 next to it while below the 1 is the same height as the 0. Still fake looking, and I think that hideous font is proof plenty.

The page says the item is "NWS"- does that mean "New Wholesale?"

Stop looking at the page man. These are bogus. The best thing you can do is forget about these. If you really want some Evisus badly just save up for them. You'll appreciate them more that way anyways.

Just in case somebody didn't get it.. I was joking.
They're very obviously fake, either that or Evisu really has gone over the deep end.
That IS a "3" though, and 30% shrinkage would be next level...
