visvim’s Canadian Tuxedo is Too Large for Shaquille O’Neal
“I heard the fans screaming, I thought it was for me, but then I saw a shadow, it was twelve foot three!” Well Aaron Carter, even if Shaquille O’Neal was actually 12’3″, he would still be hard pressed to fit in the latest and hands-down biggest denim release we’ve seen to date, brought to us by none other than visvim. And it’s aptly named the SS101 Giant series.
Paying homage to a lost era of novelty oversized denim advertising is a niche that we haven’t seen explored all that often in current times, which makes this release even better—it allows denimheads of the highest caliber to own a piece of modern history. Technically, you could wear these pieces like the model in the photos, but they would be even better displayed hung on a wall or in a store front, showcasing the true artisan nature of denim makers today.
visvim’s Hiroki Nakamura painstakingly crafted each limited piece to the same quality and standards that you could expect from all the normal sized clothes they make, utilizing a 100% cotton Japanese selvedge denim for the entire production. They certainly aren’t cheap, but come on, who else is offering raw selvedge denim for giants? Plus, they come with custom made wooden hangers.
Available from $5,732-$6,000 at Haven.
