Anyone know the Japanese retail on these? And are spot items in more limited quantity or just outside of the normal collection? Trying to decide if I should pre-order with a re-seller or wait for the release and use a proxy.

spot items are just outside of release schedule, stock is comparable to regular releases. that deckhand will sellout, but if you get a proxy in line they should be able to scoop it up at release no problem. It will probably retail at around 82-85k.

I do like all three, those buttons might be a nice touch on the deckhand.

Anyone know if there will be another 101 release on the spot items?

hey guys, im looking to get either the deckhand or the caravan jkt. How does these 2 compare in terms of fit, thickness and overall construction of jkt? oh and the weather doesnt get below 10 degrees from where i live, which will be a more versatile jkt ?

for both you need to size up one. If temps don't go below 10degrees, caravan is enough. I still  prefer the deckhand though.

Caravan is wool and very itchy but warm. D eckhand is lined with a cotton fleece similar to a north face denali. Both are about the same warmth in a different way but deckhand has better wind control with the sleeve ribbing and windstopper lining

Don't forget that for a lot of people (myself included) who don't have the luxury of living near a major stockist or in japan, a little help from other people is always welcome.  I've been disappointed a few too many times with orders that don't fit as expected, especially with visvims' history of sizing fluctuations.

 

Saying that, a dedicated thread would be very welcome.

Here is what I'm saying. I always have sizing questions. What I do is ask my proxy. I've had fil measure everything from pants, shirts, outsoles of shoes and so on. If your proxy won't do this for you, you need a new fucking proxy.

add to that, if your trying to make a purchase, do some research. A select few on here actually spent their hard earned bucks, figured shit out, and posted about it in great detail. What makes you wanks think its polite to just pop in ask a dumb ass question, and vanish. contribute something please.

...for the last time please, please, please stop spreading the "sizing variance" trash. thats the first sign someone either owns no visvim or is just talking to talk. I've been into the brand for 4 years. im a sz 2 and sz 10. period. I've sized up twice in my life and that was by choice to get a certain fit. ide be happy to link anyone to any old Vis season thread so you can educate yourself and come correct. of not, spend your money and learn the hard way, even email the shops with your "How to size FBT like A$AP" Q's

Please and thanx.

I can understand your frustration but who's to say that we don't research as much as possible?

Just because someone decides to ask a forum of people, who will have experience in owning items they haven't purchased or tried on before doesn't make them dumb ass questions.

I'm a size 8.5 standard in most footwear but recently had to buy a size 9 fbt, wear a size 8 Skagway and size 8 73's. My patricians are a size 8 but I take a 8.5 in the recent suede wt-hi. Visvim even state themselves that sizing depends on the textiles used.

Whilst it isn't helpful for people to just post absent mindedly without any gratitude, it's unfair to far all with the same brush.

Like I said, a dedicated thread that people who do so could be pointed to would keep this thread purely for talk about the brand.

I don't think a sep discussion thread will work, the vast majority of dudes who post sizing questions aren't known for their research prowess

Jack the hat, ever consider seeing an orthopedist? your foot seems to be expanding and contracting with the seasonal change in foot wear.

No one hear makes money responding to sizing questions. Most of us have paid to learn. Who ever is making money of you should be able to answer the sizing questions. This environment is much better with pics of new shit, talk about new product or materials etc. If your proxy does not help you out with sizing they can get fucked.

BTW I do proxies for 25% and will make sure your pants and fun boys fit before you buy the item

If your not by a FIL, which is the biggest excuse around here, and i understand for sure. The only option is Proxie or stockist. Either should have the answers.

Ide love to see some creative layering or fabric patina pics. Not the proverbial "kicking the tire" questions. Take it else where befor we switch over to the ss14 thread.
