Americana is a 3 hole Hockney is 2 hole iirc. ( too lazy to double check) nvm looks like Hockney is also 3 now. The Americana has horween leather I think Hockney is uk suede

The latest hockneys are antelope I believe. I picked them up in pl brown and sand in SS15 and have been wearing them non-stop. Perfect for the Arizona desert heat.

Hi Guys,

 

I know this isn't SS15 but it's the closest thread I could find where my question would be relevant.

 

I was wondering if anyone could help me with valuing a pair of Visvim FBT Shakers in beige that I have the opportunity to buy - size US10.

 

I can't get a hold of any decent quality images yet, but they're rated at an 8/10.

 

So i was wondering what the going rate nowadays would be for them?

 

This is the model I am referring to:

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Can anyone comment on the fit of Social Sculpture denim? I'm like a solid 29 in Levi's 511s and in raws all over the damn place depending on the brand. I don't want to jump to buying a pair of Visvim jeans without at least some idea of what I'm after.

 

Also Tokyo in two weeks, F.I.L. here I come.

04 : size up 1 

01 slim : TTS, or size up 1 fif you are after the baggy fit of HN and the FIL staff (which looks good as well)

03 : size up 1, but most people go TTS, but they look too slim this way IMO

I've been looking around at people more skilled than me measuring things and I've noticed that a lot of stuff I'm 29 in (Wings + Horns chinos, especially) seem to measure around 31.5, which would put me in a weird spot for sizing on Visvim stuff since 32 might be too small and the next step up would be huge. Do their chinos hold to the same standard?

 

Thanks!

Maybe I'm colorblind, do they look dark brown or charcoal to you? Haha. I asked my proxy and he thought they might be the charcoal color that was released but I was sure they are dark brown.

Holy moly the corps color backpack is so beautiful... But does anyone know why it's twice the price as the regular ballistic?

yes it is, it is gorgeous, but the price tag is unbelievable. The fabric is very smooth.

What's that fastener / buckle thing?

For attaching your umbrella or tripod. I doubt anyone actually use that thing though.

What does the long rider shirt fit like? If a size 3 lhamo shirt is too small for me what size should I go for the long rider?

I use that to hang my sleeping bag when I go out on camping trips.

Hello!

 

So I finally purchased my first Visvim piece (Ballistic 20L in Black), it took me quite some time as it was hard for me to justify that much money on 1 piece, but I love it so much! And the problem now is that I want more!

The next item I would really like to get are some Visvim FBT, but I am unsure about the sizing. I read that most people go 0.5 down, but I am never really sure 0.5 down from what...

I wear a US10 in most Nike (roshe for example), US 9.5 in most Adidas, 9.5 in Qasa High, 43 in Paul Smith, 42/42.5 in KVA. I also have a fairly wide feet.

I would think 9.5 is my best bet, but I just want to be sure! Also there are a lot more second hand pairs in 9 so that would be convenient, but I am afraid it will be too small.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

depends on the year and model. I'm usually a size 10.5 in most shoes and i have a pair of FBT folk in 10 and they fit but are snug.  I also have size 10  FBT kudu and those have a little more room. Most leather stretches

So you normally wear 10.5 in Nike? 

I am mostly looking at these :

 

FBT Sashiko

FBT Shaman

FBT Lhamo Folk

Maybe some FBT Ancestor

 

Do they fit any differently?

 

Thanks!

You could honestly go down a half size or just go tts... really doesn't make much of a difference.

Thanks! But that is my problem I don't get when people say 0.5 down, down from what? I feel like a lot of people talk about their Nike sizing but I am not sure... (I think for most people their Nike sizing is +0.5/+1)

My normal sizing is 9/9.5 and my Nike sizing is 10, so going a full size down might be a bit of a stretch...

I can get some FBT Sashiko in 9 brand new in my favorite colorway, but that will be an expensive mistake if I can't wear them.

Sounds like you are a 9.5 in FBT. I am 11-11.5 in Nike and size 11 FBT fits me perfect. 10.5 FBT is too small.
