1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    If you don't like the price, Make me an Offer!!

    Hey guys,

    Up very regrettably is my favorite piece of clothing, my almost new visvim varsity.

    It was a F.I.L. exclusive and they only made a few, about 50 (i think it was 25 each colorway) and is absolutely impossible to find anywhere. Only 1 F.I.L. carried it. Its been worn 3 or 4 times, always on a special occasion. The leather is indescribable, I have never felt anything like it, so buttery soft and smooth just amazing. The color is has a unique depth that looks almost 3d, very hard to describe. And the grain of the leather is spectacular, sure to develop amazing character in time. You can Email Visvim and they will send you pictures Hiroki Nakamura's personal jacket and the way it patinas is CRAZY. I'll try to upload pics of his later.

    The cuffs and collars still have all of their stretch and elasticity and haven't faded at all. 100% hand made. The riri zipper is very sturdy and never gets caught. The lining is nice and soft. Just an amazing jacket waiting to be broken in. A grail.The only defect on the jacket is a tiny half inch split at the shoulder, a $5 fix from any competent tailor, see the last pic.

    Asking 2500. It was originally about 270,000 yen which was about about $3200 USD at the time (Plus the freaking import fees, proxy fees, fees for the pickup and shipping, all that jazz). Willing to hear out offers but be realistic. Union is selling an inferior IMHO suede version for $4,320. It was an impulsive buy but still the best one I ever made!

    I would prefer paypal but we can talk some other way if you prefer.

    Located in the USA.
    I have no problem shipping internationally.

    Anyway I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!!

    Please don't hesitate to ask me for more pics or any questions.


    -It is a bit lighter than in the pics.
    -Fits tts

    No one is going to drop $2500 without measurements.

    For fun at home, do a dramatic reading of this sentence: "The leather is indescribable, I have never felt anything like it, so buttery soft and smooth just amazing."

    Lol this Tryhard has obviously never handled the materials visvim uses for their jackets. It is peerless.

    No it has not, ebay has an older non-FIL grey/white colorway that one is wool on the body, also its not the same Italian leather. Plus the ebay one has "wear/yellowing of the sleeves", yuck. On top of all that its a much more common Medium.
    So do a little research before coming in my thread and bashing it.

    lol thanks man,
    I've really gotten out of having really high end gear because with the type of work and traveling I do I cant justify busting stuff like this out 10-15 times a year. Plus it's such an absolute all time classic of a jacket I want It going onto someone who would actually wear it and bring out the patina hiding in it.
    It's like when I see someone with a huge collection of amazing cars; I get just owning them is neat, but selling them to someone who would actually put them on the track like the beasts they were built to be would be so much better imho.
    So for me if It takes another 2 years, then I find someone who appreciates what a piece of art this is, its worth it to me :)
