1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I personally like to know who likes or dislikes specific clothing or footwear but as we witness there are many posters on sensitive forum who get offended by others' opinions and we end up with lots of bickering. Naturally this results in many never posting their opinions about items others are buying or wearing.

    I think a good way to prevent hurt feelings is to do polls where the vote is anonymous. This way we can find out what the SF consensus or majority is, assuming there is one, on items that people are buying and wearing.

    I created a six option rating system others can use as a template or modify to their own liking on other items.

    Because FBT's are representative of the brand as a whole? We're going to make a thread like this for every single item of clothing?

    Making a thread about visvim should be heretical

    The only fair judgement

    Is exile

    A dedicated thread poll only for the specific items you want to learn how SF really views them.

    Haven't seen that before. I chose the shoes because they've been talked about a lot and I believe it was also a point of impetus for the recent meltdowns.

    So far votes 1 to 4 are split evenly with 5 and 6. Little disappointed more people haven't voted.

    I'm really glad that "Burn it. I hope I never see this online or IRL again" leading the poll, fuck Visvim at this point

    Anybody know if http://suitsense.com is legit?

    Do they sell real visvim?

    I sent them an email asking why their prices were at a lower price, this was their response:

    "Thank you for your email.

    Our visvim items are from visvim Tokyo FIL stores. All items are authentic.
    Visvim is selling their stuff cheaper within Japan. The items are available to other countries, but with different price. Please refer to the visvim official web store.

    Thank you.

    Cheers,

    Seth M.
    SUITSENSE LTD"

    I then searched for their store on visvim.tv and found nothing, so emailed them back and got this response:

    "Thank you for your email.

    We are not list on visvim.tv as a dealer yet, but we do have partnership with Tokyo local F.I.L Store and DSM Store.

    Our visvim items are all authentic.

    PS: We are on Instagram: suitsense.

    Cheers,

    Seth
    SUITSENSE"

    Their Instagram is pretty generic and has been active since early April '14, though they have responses from potential customers, interactions etc.

    Anybody made a purchase from them before? Thanks all, I don't want to make a +500 purchase if the items are not authentic. Worse, if its scam.

    I do the SEO for SUITSENSE. My name is Daniel.

    The company is registered in Canada and comprises 3 people. (Try doing an internet scam in Canada and see how long you last!)

    We are also on shopify. A very large and legitimate site. If we had complaints from customers, our site would be revoked.

    The owner frequently travels to Japan and the reason why the inventory is light compared to rivals like ssense is because we inspect everything beforehand.

    We will never sacrifice reputation for cheap/damaged/fake/bad products.

    We have hundreds of customers across the world. We also get close to 6000 unique visitors per month.

    To be a licensed supplier for Visvim, you have to have been in business for about 7-10 years and reach a certain number of sales.

    Come back in a decade if you are waiting for that and for prices to be about 15-25% higher. (When you are paying those extra fees for a full time staff so you can feel safer)

    We have low operational costs (everyone involved has a full time job) which is why we can undersell the competition.

    Mainly we do it out of love for high quality Japanese fashion and like to stay connected.

    This response is WAY too late but if you are looking to get your hands on some of the brilliance of Hiroki Nakamura, SUITSENSE is as legitimate as every other supplier (they just cost less, sorry about that!)
