still better shape and feel than actual force ones and they answered my prayers this season with an actually good and tasteful colorway.
standards are slipping tho, were supposed to be new from a bapestore in japan but there were marks on midsole and original laces (white laces looked shit, changed them out, can't believe they wouldn't supply tonal laces), loose threads a few places and one lace hole at the top not punched through all the way (had to finish the job with my SOG knife). There was a time when anything from Bape was immaculate everytime. Not anymore.

Am in YVR right now, spent way too much cash at dead bird. It's nice being a city with stores that actually stock things like NBHD/Vis/Acr so you can see other pieces and not suffer the crapshoot that is preordering or internet buying without any idea of how shit actually fits. Vis seems nice quality but $700 for an oxford? When Thom Browne is half the price? No thanks. Sure, Acr is a similar price point but Errolson is actually doing something forward-looking IMO. Then again this is probably the wrong crowd for me to be dissing Hiroki. Even then, I'm still not paying $800 for a pair of shorts.
Picked up a NBHD shirt that fits very well, might have to return to that label from time to time.
Melbourne still has Someday. I went in today, they finally started stocking WTAPS but it's like "oh cool some hoodies with white contrast drawstrings, now I can fit in with the AA crowd..." yeah
It was all 30% off too, still had full run of sizes and colors, don't think it's selling too good..
I still don't get how Japanese brands always do (light) hoodies beanies and jackets in SS. You could never wear any of that shit in Japanese summer. But it works okay for South Hem retailers for our winter..
