barlow is 118k pre-tax I think which is nuts for a fleece pullover, even for vis standards (wool or not). Re: brigadier, my guess is since boots were shipped from china they were getting hung up in customs, so the team added a leather cap to the "made in england" so they wouldnt run into hiccups through export.

The import reason makes sense for the wax on the bottom of the sole. It is visible on all the T.W.O and Poundmaker boots on the Vis website, so I guess they got stung a few times.

I had it. Leather strip on the chest and armpits. Think I sold it for £300.

Been waiting for these new brown leather Virgils to land for a while. Had the money waiting but these ICT ones are so much more expensive - I know their mud dyed but are they ‘worth’ the mark up in the flesh?

no in my opinion.
FW22 have normal leather virgils coming out… so perhaps they will do a summer drop also?

as an FYI - the ICT mud dye boots fit 1/2 size down which is due to the dying technique.

I like the look of the brigs and the virgils above so interested to see what they look like when they arrive

thats literally the best part. They did virgils without it (only a calico shim in the sole) and they look bad.

They look great bar that wee shite heel thing they added. Just for a brand so minimal with branding the heel bit is just a big shite pointless branded bit.

Who the fuck is this lunatic? This has been on the bay for years with no change in price or even decent photos. Is it even a Vis item? Mad cunt.

Out with the old, in with the new. Used for a solid ten years.
