I know this is a long-shot, but I was wondering if any of you could help me identify a Visvim piece I recently picked up.
It's a shirt with a snap-on hood, 1/2 length sleeves, arrow pattern on the cuffs and collar, and patterned front pocket flaps. Any help would be awesome!
The size tag says "XL" on the front and "7" on the back.
Thanks for any and all help! I realize there's a chance this is a fake, so please give it to me straight!
Pay for my ticket :^)
I will bring you back some over painted sashiko skagz
Do you guys have any favorite/preferred stockist to preorder drops from?
I preordered the aw14 101 from JP_harajuku. They don't have a website or anything, they're primarily on the social networks, and I'm sure they're legit, but I'm not 100% sold on their customer service. There seems to be a lot of competition for these visvim resellers, so anyone have a favorite they have used in the past?
Got the 101 in. Do you guys know if the shoulders and chest will loosen up with wear? Its pretty tight across the chest and back and the armholes are pretty damn high. It kinda ripples in the back of the neck bc it's so tight. I've tried on a bunch of stuff in a 2 and pretty sure that was my size and this one is a 2, does the 101 fit small, should I have sized up?
I tend to fluctuate between a 2 and 3 in outerwear, although I'm almost uniformly a 2 in shirts and pants. In my experience the 101 and kilgore both fit a bit slim as 2's. There's also some seasonal fluctuation in sizing. Last season's tees, for example, were much slimmer than in the past. I have last season's 101 in a 3 and it fits spot on in my opinion.
If it doesn't fit as you would prefer I would also recommend selling at a loss and going for a better fit. Not much sense in keeping a jacket that doesn't work for you.
