why you selling?

Not versatile enough. Can only wear with a few things.

Smiling I know you joke, but just in case anyone is confused the jacket is completely BNWT never worn outside.

oh, and laces that snap on the first wear, and the leather tab that falls off in the wash on your jeans, snap buttons coming off, taped seams coming undone, fbt's and folk hockneys laceholes breaking, stitching on jeans coming undone, virgil soles splitting after a week, leather jacket cuffs that you have to roll up because they're poorly structured and the backpacks which fall apart, or buttons that fall off your shirt, or lieutenant coat etc etc (i can keep going). maybe thats why the lhamo was such a success - no buttons to fall off.

Ohh thank god, I was starting to think I was buying fakes with all the stuff that goes wrong with my ponytailed prophet purchases….

The fuckers can't even sow on a fucking button

On a positive note, the sizing never seems to be any problem.

You don't even wear visvim, why are you getting so uptight about it? Back to your goth ninja thread, Mr expanding forehead!

I don't have a vast collection of visvim (few jackets, shirts, jeans, tees, few boots, shoes etc.)

never had a problem with quality and it all gets worn hard. only issue I found was on those flynt lo's, but they seemed very cheap quality wise plus those NW jeans are terrible.

I don't think people buy into the quality aspect, its more aesthetic and it's a cross between high end and wearable day to day (with exception of 30% of what they put out)

Love this thread, & Rural your whole hunting jacket episode is very amusing. Just a shame you don't get on with it after all the banter.

I do like it, the colour, quality and fit is good. If i have to drop the price by more than a ton (which i fear i may have to) will probably keep. May even look into slimming down that collar!

Never had an issue minus a button falling of the lieutenant jacket which was easily fixed.
