Just by the price? Yes.

By the look, no. Would like to see the size label though. There were a few air max 1's on .com but their id code were like a few characters over the standard and some were in the wrong font size/thickness/position on the label, they were fakes.

IIRC, I read this on HB or CT.

the suede on them looks really shitty though, like paper or foam on the red and white ones,
and the ones like id's have the same foam weird stuff instead of suede and are a solid colour,

*EDIT* Just took it to Hip for them to have a look at and they cant tell, they aren't sure if its real or not, all the dtails are there, but they cant tell either way. So can anyone offer a second opinion?

I ordered a visvim 25 k pack from Bridge Footwear and It arrived today, but Im a bit unsure whether its legit. (pics at the bottom)

First of all it was posted from China, so the alaram bells were already ringing before it came out of the box.

Second, it did not come with a visvim box, I knew that when I bought it, but its still suspicious.

The lables (cordura etc) came inside the bag, not attached.

The tags arent sewn on that well an one of them has a spelling mistake, it reads "The basic principal of creativity is to be unafroid of inability. inability does not exist" note the unafroid instead of unafraid and the i on inability isnt capitalized (not sure if it should be).

The tassles dont look as long as those in the pictures Ive seen on legit visvim dealer sites and the riri zips look a bit dodgy.

The heaphone cable hole on the mp3 player pocket is really poorly cut out and not at all centered.

The material on the rest of the bag is thin and cheap looking compared to pics on legit sites and there is stitching missing on the zip covers etc.

Am I just being overly suspicious here, or is this a fake? I mean Im not trying to be really picky, but I expected the details on the bag to be better finished for what it cost, especially given the reputation for quality Visvim have.

Im going to take it to Hip as they said theyd take a look at it for me, but any help is much appreciated. Please let me know if there are any other pictures I can take to help prove/disprove its authenticity, Ive got a good camera and a macro lense so close ups are not a problem.

Thanks

I'd szay fake on the Visvim bag, although I couldn't say 100%.
DRKSHDW hoodie looks genuine, it (or one like it) was on Yoox for around £75

yeah, it's legit.

Retail is £150 so £100 is alright.

If anyone is looking for a BNWT Rick Owen's Drkshdw hoody in a Small, I've got one to put in the Classifieds for less than half retail
