Here’s mine... different years so some differences in materials. My size tag is on the left but that doesn’t mean muchD2030262-88D9-4831-9339-3F415C21CCFB.jpeg0083202E-E3DF-4371-AC69-AAC3A66955B1.jpeg043C4595-D5DF-4E4E-A822-C5B42893759C.jpeg

@racknac I'm like 6' ish and 175 lbs. and I take size M. Definitely an oversized jacket.
Thanks! I guess part of it was the styling differences when I compare fits from Nanamica in Japan vs western countries for this specific item. Japan seems to be embracing the really oversized fit. Your measurements are pretty similar to mine (although i'm fatter now due to COVID sheltering) and I would normally go for M, but I guess its how you want to style it.

Some glue on my Attica trainers has started to come undone, revealing some small holes into the space between the main body of the shoe and the sole. Is this a problem any of you have experienced? How urgent is it to get it fixed, and how would I go about it?

Also, I thought there would be some better construction involved in Visvim shoes, even though they are sneakers - I know boots and derbies are goodyear welted, but is it common that Visvim only glue cements its sneakers? Or am I misunderstanding how these were constructed?

@tstormk a lot of Vis footwear (sneakers in particular) are cement construction. I have a pair of old FBTs and a pair of Flynt lo's that are also showing signs of this. what is also interesting in regards to cement construction is that even the brigadiers have aspects that are just glued on. nails aren't sunk into the heel, rubber isn't welted on the sole, just glued. interesting to me too. as for repairing those, any sort of cobbler could get in there and press it closed.

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!





Just double checking again on this as they have now gone down to about £350 including tax. I think the shoes and box don't match. The box looks 12 season, the price matches a hypebeast article, and the shoes SS14 or 15.

Worth the price do you reckon? Any good canvas cleaning tips appreciated as well! 😉
