    On regular months or did you just order this month as well? They might be busy catching up the back logs of Xmas I suppose.

    Seems like sales is still good for visvim then. I'm shipping domestically as well to HK.

    Oh, and I just got the shipping date a few days ago for the 16th of Jan. Pumped!

    I got a shipping notice today, however, it's a 12 digit number instead of the usual HK post 13 alphanumeric tracking number. They gave the link for the HK post though so I'm just confused as the tracking obviously won't work. Anyone have any experience from the HK domestic shipping? It's been a while since I ordered from Visvim.tv and I can't remember how the previous order went.

    Looking at purchasing one of the kerchief down jackets used but with fakes out there, I'm a little apprehensive. Does anyone know what to look out for? It seems it's hard to judge based on the body of the garment since they're all so different.

    But for instance, does this tag look legit?

    edit: I think I was able to answer my own question by comparing other jacket labels to this one below. So, fake.

    Thanks!

    What did you look for? Would be cool for you to post a guide so people can see!

    I compared it to other kerchief's being sold and noticed in the photo (above) they don't list the proper materials. It should show the filling materials on the tag. (see below)

    Also, the washing icons are different and there should be no text below.

    Any way to know what kinds of Virgils will release this season? I'm looking for black suede. I wasn't happy with the version that I had so I sold them but I'm still looking for ones that I do like.

    virgils aren't listed but likely will release as part of spot release. kerchief is fake because of visvim font and the printed linen liner ink is dark and uniform whereas the og is lighter and much more subtle.

    Virgil KNGR spot release already happened (Jan 2).

    There aren't any official virgils for SS2017, but there's a small chance of another spot release I suppose.

    What's a spot release? I've never bought straight from Visvim before. Always just Y!jp. And are you guys talking about the US or Japanese sites? Would it be more worth it to proxy from the Japanese store? Thanks for the responses btw.

    Spot releases aren't linked to general season releases, so they are like special products that are released infrequently throughout the year

    For instance, the spot release Virgils were released early January but aren't part of the larger SS17 collection

    Ah I see. Then is there any way to know when these spot releases happen and what items will be included? Black suede Virgils are usually released every season right?
