If you're ripping stuff off you make fakes of stuff that looks cool and will sell. This person must have overstock of stuff that just didn't sell. They certainly aren't visvim's cooler items. Or maybe a boutique closed.. Who knows. His visvim items don't look fake to me and it would be a strange collection of items to have fakes of.

The dugout might be one of Vis best seller in 2015 and 2016. This seller sells only fake and he is dumb enough to use the same pics as on Taobao sometimes. You might very well be that dealer after all. In any case all his Vis items are fake. Period.

Oh damn little fycus shat his pants and needs the uncomfortable person removed. Once you clean yourself up go ahead and check my posts again. I linked to stock pictures of the "real deal."

And best seller or no, that dugout shirt looks like something they might have worn in the Georgia cotton fields. And it really isn't this big of a deal, I don't need to stand up for this dude selling whatever it is he's selling on eBay. I can't say his collection is very impressive, and that's precisely why I thought it might be legit. They look like the sort of poor sellers from last season you might find cobbled together at an Off Saks or other discount designer type store..or the staples there's always surplus of.

And Bape is definitely not my style but you think the fakers make dupes of that shit? Even the glow-in-the-dark jackets? And you seem to know a lot about those fake visvim Goretex jackets - are they using real Goretex? Fake "cause I said so" is the sort of pronouncement I'm inclined to be skeptical of. I don't believe in Jesus either. Now if you saw the same pics on Taobao, you know someone who bought some of it, or you've read some journo articles or a visvim announcement about fakes hitting the market big, then I'd be interested. As it is I've found very little searching Google.

And why'd they stop putting the custom print on the Goretex tape seams?

I don't know how ya'll upload photos so I linked to a Flickr.
Is this shirt obviously a fake? I can't say I've bought lots of Visvim stuff. Pretty much have to order it if you live in Vegas. & haven't seen this shirt online. You all know what is what I'm guessing. Anyway, what gives it away if it is a fake?

& it does have little prints that say "Paris accessories.." & "Made in USA" & "Colorfast…something"
How do you tell the fakes? Thanks.

That is a fake, its a replica of the Indigo Camping Trailer Longrider Bandana shirt and is a terrible fake because its not vintage bandanas, the buttons are shite, and the tag is off (again).
