Looks legit to me. Anyone have a second opinion?
Seems legit, but i would just wait to grab one on deep discount. After shipping from JP and potential duties if you are in EU or something it's like a 100 dollar difference between that listing and a stockist/reliable reseller if you can be patient.

The lowest I've seen them go for after discounts from boutiques is ~$600.

The most recent iterations of the backpacks have really soft lamb leather on the bottom that scratches/tears pretty easily. For some, I suppose that's a vibe but I miss the thicker/rougher suede.

If I generally wear US L t-shirts (hate tops that feel fitted in chest or shoulders) would I drown in an Ultimate Jumbo Tee in a 4? I don’t own any oversized-by-design tees in visvim nor other brands. Thanks

Couldn't you just compare measurements? From what I can tell, no, you would not be swimming based on the measurements I just looked at.

Grabbed the sea island cotton jumbo hoody in black. In hand it looks a bit brown. If anyone has dealt with the fabric, does it tend to fade easily?

I’ve had it for about a month now. I know some people swear by them but this hoodie kind of pisses me off especially for the price (even at 50% off).

The same hoodie in Visvim expo is more of a gray but every iteration I tried that’s available online it is very clearly brown, even though it’s labeled black. The employee at Visvim showed me his personal black ultimate Jumbo (which looks gray) and the 3 month fading on it looked like it was fading into brown. My personal black ultimate jumbo which arrived as a mud brown like yours has slightly faded to a lighter brown but still retains the slight sheen and the interior fleece feels a bit rough but that may be due to me mostly air drying.

The frustrating thing is how much shrinkage I’ve gotten. In store the 4 felt perfect. A bit short but perfectly fitted. The one I ordered online came in like 2 sizes smaller so I found a size 5 which felt like a size 4 and after washing is basically unwearable as it shrank ( tap cold air dry) and feels like a size 2 or 3. That and also I feel like being gaslit into thinking it’s a black color way when it’s mud brown haha.

It’s pretty unfortunate with the color. Was hoping it was lighting but definitely looks like black that sat in the sun.
And I agree this one fits slim compared to other jumbos I had in the same size. Maybe will grow to like it more as the fabric does feel great right now.

My black ultimate jumbo SB faded to brown too, even before any washing. However it has retained its very soft and dense hand feel and is noticeably smoother than standard cotton jumbos. It never got fuzzy or pilled like the cashmere ones either which is nice. Agree it fits a whole size small.

Does anyone have the Furlong coat? I took a punt on one and will have to wait and see how it is when it arrives. Not the season for one but if it works, I can wait for Winter :)
