Can anyone verify anything about these? Bought them from Japan recently, but I feel like they might be fake.

Legs pair in particular seems to have no Kapital care tag? Also has “International World Jeans“ on the main button.

Any insight would be appreciated.
I don't know about authentication, but that design looks a lot better to me with the distressing. Without the distressing, the design looks a bit hokey.

True, but there's good and bad hokey.

I mean, if you're going to get the first pair and want to save a few bucks, just get a $15 Bedazzler machine and go to town on some Wranglers.
COLD BLOODED.

We also don't buy very much Kountry for reasons completely unrelated to what you said.

Lol this logic is in line with "You can always save money by building a house yourself". In theory, yes you could.. but very few people have the knowledge, creativity, and desire to do so. Hence, why Kapital Kountry exists.

I'm not saying that all Kapital Kountry is bad. I have some pieces in my closet.

I'm saying this ...

... is not far from this ...

I get that the applique is modeled after Western belts, but ... Kapital makes cooler pants that involve a lot more skill and ingenuity, and the stuff looks better in outfits (IMO). The above just looks like a bedazzled jean.

Those drunken stripe pants look cool

I haven't had a chance to try them, but I still think the destroyed pants I posted last winter look interesting

Yup I like them both. Been trying to get the drunken stripe ones for a while but they seem to be sold out everywhere in JP.

The Neem pants looks nice as well. The Neem model has super awkward sizing though. The biggest size (4) has a 32 inch waist! :fu:

The bedazzled pants are stupid easy to make. Like even with that quality in mind, it's using rivets and faux leather cut outs. If you wanted to you could easily buy and hammer in the same things on your pants.

No where close to building your own pants. Kapitals definitely has some stuff that makes me say "fuck it, I'm not ever gonna get good enough to do that successfully.". However those pants are not one of em.

The destroyed pants, I really like, and I almost bought a pair but the rise is like super high and it's more tapered than I images. Maybe I'll still get some once summer is over.

Love the DIY vibe going on. I have a great idea for DIY century denim instead of buying an expensive af pair from Kap. Just get a used sewing machine loaded with some heavy thread and go to town on a pair of Wranglers with straight stiching. Save b1g buXX!

Just order the new skeleton big T shirt from Kapital web shop, I’m not big on kapital Bones and Smiley stuffs but justify buying this because I don’t have any pocket t shirt.
Why not just get some cool x-ray plates and go to town with some white paint on a used big ass tee?
