Any 7 hole owners able to attest to sizing? I'm reading size down?
Sizing them was an adventure. TTS was clearly too big, but one size down was just a hair too small.

I kept the one-size down pair and had them stretched by a cobbler. Now they fit perfectly as long as my socks aren't too thick.

If ordering online, make sure you can easily return them!

agreed... i went TTS, but the box is definitely roomier. 1/2 size down would work

Unfortunately they are an ebay listing! Very good condition and may be able to get some knocked off the value. Will have a think.

Hey guys,

Was hoping if someone here can help me out ID these virgils and if they’re real or not. For some reason the shaft looks huge but that might just the angle of them.

Thank you in advance!

Like others, I'd probably go a half size down or stick to TTS. I went for my actual size and mine are certainly wearable but admittedly provide larger interior foot space than my other Vis boots. I think I could have gone down half a size. But then I don't know if the side zips might then "pinch" more. I already find them a little uncomfortable.

Hey dudes, I'm selling my sanjuro kimono from the last S/S. Brand new and never worn, comes with the envelope but I mistakenly ditched the tags. Size 3, $650OBO. Thanks!

I tried a pair in US11 at FIL, and they felt vey tight, especially given the bison leather used is very tough and not stretchable....the sole comfort felt also super weird on the ones I tried...

Just circling back on this. This is being listed on YJP, but am struggling to see what season it is. Spoke with @Retlas and agree that it does not match up with the listing name and the year, as it appears to be the Bison 2014/15, annoyingly the only year with the same release twice by the looks of things? Does the bag, as well as the label etc, look right for that release?

Legit check is essentially what I am looking for!

Here are photos of my Sanjuro Down with a detail picture of the pocket lining. Every iteration I read about says the pocket lining is a micro fleece (like the Thorson), but this is a thick herringbone fabric. Maybe it's a fake?! I doubt it, but any info would be appreciated.

Think thats okay, I doubled checked and that iteration had branded snaps, and the mud dye + mask clip look proper. Not 100% tho, the sanjuro down was indeed faked. Would prob need to look at the labels and some other details to know for sure.
