the reason for my friends impatience is the fact that this has been discussed in great leangths two threads ago, and its all saved. simply need to start looking at these threads as research tools.... not human google.

anyone know how heavy the denim is on the ss b.d. shirt dmg?

Just got this shirt the other day. I can already say this is my favorite denim shirt ever. Great color and not too heavy and not too thin - if that makes any sense.

Was hoping for a specific weight, but thanks.

Also to avoid any misunderstandings - I took a size 5 in the SS Damaged BD and I'm 2 ft tall. Fits perfect!

Sorry but I have to ask.. What difference does it make how much a shirt weights? You're not trying to determine the quality of used denim basing on the weight are you?

Well I live in Jakarta, so denim weights especially on shirts mean a lot.

Odd, because the most popular brand of Japanese jeans in Indonesia is Iron Heart.  Indonesia is buying more Iron Heart than nearly any other country in the world per capita.  It's very impressive considering it's all super heavy in weight.

That is another issue for me. I can't imagine wearing 21oz jeans here it is so hot! Most of the ppl I see wearing iron hearts are bikers/skateboarders and their reason to me is that if ever they fall it helps protect their skin. I myself wear denimes which i think are 14oz. To me that's really the limit, any more and it'll be way too hot.

Nudie is a popular brand here too

So yes, the damaged ss should be perfect for you. Its 14oz but has a very soft handle, it definitely breathes. Bearing in mind its still denim, its beyond soft so its not restricting either. If you need a size 2, message me direct.

Special ordered the Minie Hunting Jkt in indigo damaged moleskin earlier this year from the LA trunk show and received it a few days ago. I don't normally purchase pre-distressed clothing, so it was a bit of an aberration for me. I'm pretty much a size 1 across the board and went TTS on it. Wish it was just a bit heavier, but it'll probably end up allowing for more year round wear in LA.

Some of you guys need to get off your high horses. Especially when you're handing out misinformation like this:

You're coming across just as bad as the retards (who are unable to use Google or the search function in this forum) who spout these questions that have been repeatedly answered before.

 

We all have to start somewhere, so why come across as an elitist prick and cast judgement? If someone asks what seemingly is a stupid question in your eyes, then ignore it and move on. In some cases not everyone can purchase direct from F.I.L. through a proxy, or pre-order from a trunk show for one reason or another. Perhaps they only just found out about the item in question and missed the release date, or they're a casual observer of the brand and aren't as hardcore as those that post within this thread.

 

Therefore, sometimes the secondhand/reseller market is their only option. Hence the frequently occurring authenticity questions. On this note instead of shooting down people every time someone queries a reseller's legitimacy, how about creating a list of accredited (by you fan bois) resellers at the beginning of this thread that people can refer to, or at least search for. If it's a specific item then posting in the "legit checks megathread" is probably going to be counterproductive as hardly anyone here checks or posts in that thread anyway, so it makes more sense to post in an active "branded" thread.

 

Additionally, this thread gets pretty redundant once the season is in motion or drawing to its end. Most people post their Visvim wares in the "last purchases" thread to get berated, and not exclusively to this. 

 

TL;DR: It's the season of goodwill to all mankind, so perhaps goodwill and an ounce of patience could be spread around from those involved.

Hey Dee, I look for the same everyday but a 3.....might go for brown if I ever see one and am regretting not nabbing that orange before Stephen did ! (The emerald and the yellow insulators on yahoo both look dope too.....).

 

I'll shout you if I ever come across a 4 but I suspect we're both looking in same places

I've got a feeling they'll come again though. Might be a while now though.

just came back from FIL and I could handle the deckhand ND...wow, what a nice piece really. The herringbone fabric looks quite nice and the shearling lining is so much better than previous seasons'. This has to be the best piece of this winter along with the PFD ND for sure. The normal version was already sold out as well as the 101 damaged.

yeah i heard the tokyo fil only scooped up a handful of sizes for the 101, shame really. Were you able to see the regular deckhand at all?

no, all sold out when I was there at around 12pm. I am not even sure if they even reached FIL ? Anyway the ND version is the only version to go for.

Hmm, by the look from photos I think i prefer the herringbone if you consider color.

Has there been a different ND Deckhand release other than lt.mud, some FIL exclusive maybe?

It's in Harajuku/Ometsando Hills, tucked away in a corner by the dior shop off that main road.

ND version uses the same herringbone fabric, and it serioulsy looks fucking great in person. Light mud is the only ND colorway released.

 

EDIT : FIL Tokyo received totally 45 Deckhand normal version, 15 were sold on pre-sale.

yo dude, what's up? that jacket is crazy, the lookbook shots were better than the static product photos so assume it looks much better worn?  tempting, tempting
