    I've only found fake vis. Check the construction details, MoP, felled seams etc. the last fake I found makes JCP look like kiton.

    Thanks guys. Yeah I was pretty positive it was fake but had never handled Visvim in person. And I guess I still haven't :)

    A trip to the post office turned into "I should hit that one GW again" turned into "let me hit a couple more on the way home." Nothing spectacular, but decent. Wish I hadn't decided to eat spicy Mexican food for lunch - thought I was going to shit myself in the car at one point.


    Cursory sold listings search said I might get $50 each for these:

    @TheNeedMachine I think those are wrangler blue bell. Wrangler and lee have followed Levi's and have heritage lines now. They're popular in Europe but I don't think they have much love in the US yet
