Greetings y'all, this is the second edition of my wishlist. Descriptions of my top ten most-desired items (and several honourable mentions) and a picture of examples of some of them follow below.

What is different this time around, though, is that I am offering a variable commission for every piece which you can locate on my behalf. Depending on its rarity and how much I personally value it, commissions will also vary. You can see how much I am offering for the locating of each item next to its text entry below. Before getting to the pieces themselves, I wish to offer several clauses pertinent to my offer, that there may be no misunderstandings.

- I will not be purchasing items which you locate, order, and then offer to resell to me at a higher price.
- I will not compensate you if something has been located after I have already discovered it. I will not play games with y'all, though. If you find it first, Imna be honest about it.
- I will not compensate you for items listed at ridiculous (or even reseller) prices, e.g. $300 T-shirts, $1,000 coats, $400 ties, $300 belts (with the exception of my number-one-most-wanted item), etc.
- Depending upon how much damage I have done in any given month, I may not desire/be able to purchase items, particularly if they come with high (but, if I shall so deem, reasonable) prices. Everything on the list is rare, so Imna go hard after it whenever possible. When it is in my hands, the money is yours.
- I will not compensate you nor purchase items that are in anything less than good-great condition.
- I will not compensate you for items that are not my size (I have endeavoured to state sizes below, whenever possible).
- I will not compensate you for items that are sold out before I get to them. Again, I will be honest with you.
- If I already have an item, or am not interested in the style found, there will be no compensation (when at all possible, I have tried to clearly state below what I want and do not want, so as to avoid such a circumstance).
- Goods on Pondon, Brand Collect, Beegle, Supreme Palace, Stay246, Zozotown, PX-Megastore, 3peat, BuySell Ueno, and CliffEdge are not eligible.


On a near-daily basis, I search across over 20 different retailers, shops, and auction sites, so it is hard for that which I want to get by me. My hope is that you have connections, friends, an inside track on releases, knowledge of hidden-away shops that I do not possess, or simply have some of these in your own collections.

A simple link to what you discover is all it will take. After I have purchased the item and had it arrive safely at my door, the reward is yours via PayPal. I have nothing but a good reputation on BapeTalk and elsewhere, and I want these things enough that I will pay extra for your help in finding them.

That said, here are the top ten:

1) BAPE Sapporo-colorway leather belt (or any other city camo colorways, should they exist), size L: $30-50 commission!
This is the only item I will really consider to be a 'grail', as silly as I find the word to be. It is such a rare piece that no one on BapeTalk has a release date, production numbers, or press on it whatsoever. Despite being years old, news of its release hit the forums first when I shared on it last year, and the item had to be verified based on its craftsmanship alone. I do not care whether or not the original buckle is included; all I want is the belt itself.

2) BAPE x Carhartt camo vests, size M: $10 commission!
I have the purple and black colorways, and am looking to get every other one released. I know that at the least, there are yellow- and green editions, and knowing BAPE at the time, it is likely that other colorways were also produced. Can anyone confirm other colors?

3) BAPE / Mr. Bathing Ape ties / bowties
The following ties (all shown in the picture below) are desired:
- Mr. Bathing Ape red jacquard camo (second season): $30 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape blue jacquard camo (second season): $10 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape purple jacquard camo (third season, I believe): $10 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape black print camo (third season, I believe): $10 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape blue print camo (third season, I believe): $10 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape blue jacquard camo w/ 'gold spackle/dots' (fourth season or beyond): $10 commission!
- Mr. Bathing Ape black jacquard camo w/ 'gold spackle/dots' (fourth season or beyond): $10 commission!
- BAPE black jacquard'mini-camo' (this is part of the same series as the brown jacquard 'mini-camo' available on Pondon at present): $10 commission!
- BAPE purple jacquard'mini-camo' (this is part of the same series as the brown jacquard 'mini-camo' available on Pondon at present): $10 commission!
- BAPE brown/gold ape face & stripe design: $10 commission!
- BAPE light blue/navy ape face & stripe design: $10 commission!
- BAPE x MODS black (no information on when or where this came out, other than the fact that it may have been a UK-only release): $20 commission!
- BAPE x MODS navy (no information on when or where this came out, other than the fact that it may have been a UK-only release): $20 commission!
- BAPE bowties; I will take any of the models made (though I believe the range is limited to red-, blue-, black-, and possibly Isetan-yellow-check models): $10 commission!

4) BAPE / Ursus BAPE leather belts, size L: $10 commission!
I have over a dozen, but I am still looking for just about every style made, especially camo square belt-buckled styles and the red/blue URSUS series. The styles pictured below are not the only ones I want! In general, the only ones I am not interested in are Hawaiian/floral-, multicolor-, and cotton candy camo belts, as well as the 'US.'-metal buckle Ursus leather belts.

5a) BAPE OG B-7 jacket, size M (or perhaps, dependent upon the measurements, S): $30 commission!
This is very OG; one showed up on BapeTalk earlier, but it is long gone now. Several variants seem to have been made, but the model picture is what is most-desired.
5b) BAPE x wTaps OG black B-7 (?) jacket, size M (or perhaps, dependent upon the measurements, S) $30 commission!
To my knowledge, this may be even rarer than the jacket in 6a). I have only even seen it in a scan of Valencia's.

6) BAPE / Mr. Bathing Ape hunting caps / casquets, size L: $10 commission!
See the picture below for which models are desired.

7) MCM by Phenomenon native/tribal belt, size uncertain: $30~50 commission!
See the picture below.

8) Burberry Fringe bracelet, size uncertain (but likely 20+): $30 commission!
See the picture below.

9) BAPE x Undercover tee, size uncertain (but likely M): $30 commission!
See the picture below; the 'U' on the ape's forehead is the only style I want.

10) BAPE x CLOT Chinese jacket, size uncertain (but likely M): $30~50 commission!
See the picture below; this is up there in rarity with the top others on the list, and I have never seen one floating around in the wild. Fakes were out at one point, but even those I have never seen available for purchase online. Regarding legitimacy, real items have a red Clot sleeve tag, while fakes would appear to have the tag in white.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS:

11) BAPE Zoom-Check mohair sweaters (red and turquoise blue) size L: $5 commission!
This year's release. I was not able to get to it in time, though size Ms have popped up recently at a fraction of the retail price.

12) BAPE Cashmere red check scarf: $5 commission!
This winter's release. I also could not get to this in time, and have not been able to locate it anywhere.

13) BAPE record player slipcovers: $5 commission!
I have the gray camo, and want the green version, as well as the pink-, blue-, green-, and black camo versions released 2001~2002, as well as the Hong Kong green camo editions featuring a star and green apehead in the center.

14) Mr. Bathing Ape cartoon character tee, size L (or perhaps, dependent upon the measurements, M)

15) GUCCI belt, size uncertain (pictured)

16) GUCCI wool-blend web scarf (pictured)

17) Mr. Bathing Ape dress vests, size uncertain

18) Maiden Noir green camo reversible vest, size uncertain (pictured)

19) BAPE textiles stamps (pictured)

20) BAPE x SOREL camo boots, likely size 11 (pictured)

21) BAPE x Tempur pillow set (pictured)

22) BAPE Camo Collage (2011) canvases, 60cm x 60cm sizes
I want these in blue, green, and pink camo. I have the 40cm x 40cm sizes, and am willing to offer them in a trade plus cash to compensate for the difference.

23) Louis Vuitton monogramme-style design ties (all colorways in the pictured styles)
I can find legitimate Vuitton goods easily, so the goal in listing these is to find them at bargain prices.

24) Ursus knit vests, blue and brown (likely size L)

25a) The Maison Martin Margiela book
26a) The Louis Vuitton '100 Legendary Trunks' book

I am looking for both of these at a bargain.

26) Louis Vuitton Monogrammouflage canvases
They were released in three colorways: black-green, medium green, and sand.




Holla!♥

Well I've seen a Bape all in one BAPE logo belt on ebay... It has a different camo and I'm not sure if it's 100% legit...

But i was just curious because a lot of these items are quite hard to find.

Straight up, mayne. This stuff does not pop up that often, but I snag items surprisingly frequently, so it is simply a matter of waiting it out. Even if I don't find them myself, I am betting that all of the veterans on here will be able to help me out.

While not on my list, I copped an extremely limited item last night (I had never even seen it before), one that I'll be sharing on later in the month.

Thanks, homey. I appreciate it. If you find anything, get at me!
