I think the most important thing to remember is that things are only worth what you are willing to pay for them. If you are just starting to explore Yohji's work, I'd be cautious of spending too much at first - that comes later once you're more confident in terms of knowing what you want. Like others have said forums are perhaps the easiest place to buy, because the quality of photographs will be better and you can usually ask questions via PM from the seller. But whether...
Same. Even though I'm tall, I'm used to rolling up my trousers, and I quite like cropped cuts - especially for boots!
^ I'm 6 foot and have a 30 inch waist, and one of my favourite pairs of Y's trousers is a size LL! Belt it up and rock it I say. My brother has a pair of slimmer YYPH suit trousers, that are remarkably long - I think 36 inch unhemmed? There have been quite a lot of full bodied trousers in the Spring/Summer collections, but I do know what you mean - the styling for Autumn/Winter has seen a lot of slimmer trousers recently. But even so, in stores I don't particularly see...
A few photographs from Yamamoto & Yohji for people who have yet to be able to flick through a copy. Definitely recommend buying it - remarkably comprehensive, covering everything from licensing projects, to hair and make up.
That looks absolutely beautiful!I have the same problem Steven. I'm 6 foot, but I have tiny shoulders, so I end up trying to find either a size 2 with longer sleeves, or a 3 with narrower shoulders (or simply a softer shoulder). I do find raglan sleeves in whichever size the most forgiving though.And yeah, will keep a lookout for one of the thicker wool Y's coats methinks.
Fiver. Sign me up. On the subject of jackets, I have been on the lookout for a thicker Winter coat. I've seen guys in the gab wool coats come Winter, but I imagine there is a lot of layering going on underneath? Was tempted by some of the cashmere wool AAR coats you see pop up from time to time, but thinking they are probably too "formal" for my wardrobe.
Hmm yeah, I guess reformulations were to be expected. I've never had the chance to try the original so I'm not sure to what extent it would be as a result of reformulation, or it just not working on my skin. Will try to give it a few more tries, just to make sure I'm getting the full effect. Oh and as far as I'm aware they're slated for general release in the US for Autumn/Winter?
Was a bit disappointed by Yohji Homme. On my skin all I got the whole way through was rum and spice...and that's about it On paper it had woods poking through in the dry down, and a slight liquorice note, but yeah, flat on me. I think it needed something to undercut that sweetness, but I assume the woods would do that if they came through on my skin. Yohji Senses on the other hand, with the yuzu and pear seemed perfect for this season's Spring/Summer collection. Will have...
I think this is quite important. I'm not in a position to be able to afford most Yohji, but my brother fortunately is. I enjoy the hunt, and the work that goes into finding something that fits a specific bill, so the majority of the time I'm actually on the lookout for clothes for him rather than myself....and it's just as fun If you're passionate about the clothes, I think there is a joy to be found in simply appreciating them and the work behind them. Of course in an...
