The Sashimono is an important icon of the Samurai, so Evisu designed these jeans with icons meant to strike fear in all those who approach the wearer.
Personally? I think in New York these jeans would indicate you got the crap beaten out of you.
Implications - But then again, Evisu International Jeans were also the denimwear of choice for dozens of rappers frmo 2008-2010. Mock me all you want, if I see one of my favorite rappers rocking it, chances are I'm going to support it. Evisu fits the mold to a T.
