@tstormkwhat 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.
of course most Boots that are Goodyear stitch, still have the sole glued to the mid sole, only the mid sole is stitched to the welt. so if the midsole/welt isn't too damaged, just gluing a new sole is ok, otherwise you need to repalce all tje welt and midsole.
it can happen that the sole is sticthed to the welt through the mid sole, visvim did it once on the 1st poundmaker boots i believe it was (not many brands bother doing a handstitched welt due to time consumption, but I think the stitching unevenness and the thicker stitch used adds character) :

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! 😉
@Emixam any thoughts? Sorry to nudge the listing ends tomorrow.

Thoughts on this too would be appreciated! It's a size 3. Are they TTS, size up/down?

Would it be possible to get a legit check on this one?
Looks good to me but I'm also relatively new to Visvim.

May be a stupid question but does the liner jacket actually fit any vis pieces as a liner?

It can fit in a six-five, maybe a patterson overcoat but I don't remember if it has buttons on the inside

Has anyone seen the Iris gilet/vest at a discounted price? I can't bring myself to purchase retail at the moment.

Speaking of the Iris liner, the brand PRESIDENT's has these vest in stock that just happens to have the same standard colorway as Visvim :rolleyes::

What size do you want? I got a size 4 from here. Returned the 3 but their service is excellent.
