Visvim F/W/S 2006-2007

Recommended Posts

anyone know where to get older fbt models? ebay sucks ass for visvim..

also when is UNDFTD gonna get the ancestors?!

As Air Macks mentioned, UNDFTD will no longer be getting Japanese release Visvims, but rather the U.S. line when it launches early next year. Union is the only place in L.A. stocking Visvim right now and they will continue to get the Japanese line in the future.

As far as getting older models:

http://www.napsize.com

http://www.grandism.com

http://www.slamjam.it

http://www.vintagekicks.com

http://www.chapterworld.com/visvim/index.html

Your best bet would be to check the Chapterworld website and ask user 2000db to check some of the Tokyo Chapter stores and buy them through him...........

how hard is it to find visvim clothing in Japan? and how much does it retail for? How is the sizing?

I really like some of the simple striped pieces recenlty.

i think you could rephrase those questions better

like your post screams "im a fucking n00b!1!!11"

1) FIL is the official visvim store. they ALWAYS have visvim clothing

2) what's the retail? depends on the item...?

3) sizing = not too slim

1) I meant, how limited are the runs of clothing, such as does shit sell out a day/week after it is released in Japan (FIL), or is it readily available throughout the season.

2)

I'll be a little more specific for you, How much do the henley, long sleeved tops, crews and hoodies retail for?

3) Not slim yeah that helps a little, but I meant, does a Large fit like a american large, european large, do they run small, are the arms long / short, is the body cut long / short.

I apologise for not being such an expert on this and posing questions in a way that a simple person like you can understand :D .

I can tell you the border henley went for Y19,800.

Visvim is more than most other Japanese street brands, like expect to pay double what you would for something similar from Neigborhood or Bathing Ape.

Not sure if anyone posted this yet, but HUFs had the ancestor last time I was there...not sure what sizes they had left but I can check if anyone is interested in any particular sizes....i'll be in the city on wed.

Looks like they got them in pretty recently. I went on like Nov 30 and they only had newtons and serra boots.

IMO, visvim clothing isn't all that great. That special cotton beeded tee wasn't all special (in terms of quality) to me. Shoes on the other hand are a different story; every visvim I've owned were super comfy and very nice quality

Yeah, I see what you mean, i really like their style, but I doubt I personally would appreciate it that much more than American Apparel, for the price. Shoes are dope, just have to wait until they make a size US13... prepared to be waiting a while...

hahaha. Try actually holding the shit in your hand before you make that decision. And thats not even starting on the difference in quality of cut and detailing.

Oh yeah don't get me wrong, AA stuff is average, and I would take the visvim shit anyday, quality looks awesome, but the effort of getting the stuff I want, to Australia... and the price... don't know if I can splash that much cash. One day...

Just found out supply in sydney is getting those henley's and others in, maybe I can splash the cash after all. Rirawin, would you say they run slightly big? I hope so, as just bigger than a large would be perfect for me.

There are folders on visvim.tv, but it's password protected. Your best bet is probably to contact a retailer.

I heard the Medium was 20 inches and a large was either 57cm or 21 inches. These are chest measurements.
