that one looks real. Honestly, haven't seen a fake whistle. I don't think those are faked much.

Just received them. They are indeed soft and very breathable! Size 2s perfect for me as I can adjust them with the cinch. Does visvim make any suspenders? It seems these have buttons for suspenders?

they are very nice, but not $1000 nice tbh lol
yes, Visvim makes suspenders that cost as much if not more than the price you paid for those shorts.

ADSG suspenders (veggie) came out one or two seasons ago. very rare.

i compared it with the other picsi found on internet, that one is actually fake. Its made out of 1 part cast, while the authentic ones are made out of 2 part cast actually. The font of the visvim are finer on the real ones too. I saw that particular seller have been selling a lot of visvim whistles for the past year.

I was never in the market for those whistles, you can probably find a much cheaper actual vintage japanese law enforcement whistle or at least a new one since the design hasn't changed, plus it would be functional. I wouldn't buy one without the tether either since that's a lot of the cost, especially if it's the ramie version.

I found it to be a bit cheesy tbh, but now that they arent as trendy as they were 3-4 years ago, i think theyd made a nice accessory to bring when i go biking just in case i need to use em lol.

i only found one with the leather strap. The ramie one was the first ver and its kinda hard to get now:

side comparison. The authentic one have seam line where the part meet. While the fake one is one cast

Anyone have any leads on where to track down a reservation belt? I'm hunting for a brown one w the circular brass rings. A 38 would be best, but I'd also do a 36.

I wonder if there's anyway to get a look at the white background lookbook shots shown at trunkshows, they always show off more pieces

For those interested. Also surprised at the krupa price in w/l. Figured it would be lower, alas it's basically the same.
