    When I first started looking into some Virgils for myself, I went through nearly all of Lazytuba's flickstream lol. Anyways, I found a pair on Rakuten recently for what I thought was a pretty good price, and I've already put more wear into them in a week than they had when I got them. Definitely gonna be on that hiroki hype now. I already told ilikebacon that if they've got those black patrician boots on sale to let me know. Otherwise, I might just settle for some patrician los and replace the red soles with the linked soles above(thanks btw).

    Also has anyone ever seen a black kilgore? Besides the few on Yahoo auctions, I've never seen one before. I'm assuming those being sold now are likely fake, especially since the seller has multiple listing as different prices.

    Went back today and found out that the information that SA told me yesterday almost all wrong. So they had all their styles on sale actually, not just those 3. And they take phone orders as well. You just have to provide a credit card and a billing address. They might only be able to ship to your billing address (not 100% sure on this one).

    Alright so these are the models they had in stores.

    The prices and sizes/stock for the first 4 pairs and the 2nd last (Cumberlands) in order starting from the Skagway Florals.

    $210 // 9 10 11 12
    $320 // 8 9 10 11 12
    $365 // 10 11 12
    $300 // 8 9 10 11 12
    $345 // Forgot to check sizes for these and not 100% sure on price tbh. I'm forgetful as fuck lol.

    Keep in mind all prices are CAD.

    Their phone number is (514)284-1906. The boutique is SSENSE. Didn't even know they had a boutique; thought it was just online. An SA told me they just don't advertise at all.

    That's all the info I have. Cheers!

    I didn't know that they carry Visvim. I wonder why their website doesn't have them.

    A lot of places are apparently not allowed to sell Visvim online. Having special products that are not part of the webstore, and having to do things by email, etc... messes up a streamlined system. It makes sense if you feel that you are going to do a brisk business. But if you feel that it's going to be more of a hassle than it's worth to your business, there is no incentive to do it.

    You have to suffer for the kop. Incidentally, Engineered Garments is the same.

    Buying EG is so weird. Some places you have to call in some places you can just buy. I don't understand it. Why do they even do that?

    Incidentally, my blue flora ones came today. So good. So, 10.5 is my dead on size. fml that most places don't carry half sizes. I guess that I have to pay more for low tops (hard to wear them super loose), but can go up to 11 (comfy, especially for chillin or just strolling), for hightops.

    Where did you order from? Ssense?

    I have a 8oz denim Lhamo coming in.

    IDEALLY I would've won my bid on this lhamo kuba (corduroy + vintage japanese fabric accents), but it went up to $400 and life is hard

    They are, but only at their brick and mortar store. Apparently canadians dont like visvim because it never usually hits sale prices like that...

    Yea, m&s said that they couldn't sell visvim online either and that there wouldn't be any sales (hopefully sales eventually...) I think partly bc ss14 was the first season they had it. I think visvim wants to see if you can sell the product without heavy advertising and/or discounts.

    Doesn't seem to be an issue since m&s mentioned a few times about how much product they were moving and how good the margins were...like someone would just come in and look at the pants and pick up all 3 in each color...
