I've been wanting to play a bit more with silhouette these days. Looking for pants that give the more voluminous silhouette to go with a tighter top/leather jacket, but hoping to avoid diaper butt since I don't find that practical. Kind of like sweat pants but avoiding the jersey texture. More futuristic cotton/polyester or even a finer wool? Some of spacepope's fits come to mind. What should I be looking at - Silent? Yohji?

yes

Song for the Mute S/S 15 looking pretty fly. Shame about the attached price tag

 

 

 

Here's the rest.

Is Songs for the Mute an Australian brand? For some reason it seems Japanese to me but I feel like I've read/heard they are Australian?

They are Australian. The designer duo (a couple) are asian, duno if they're Japanese.

Yeah they are. I believe they are Sydney based but I may be wrong.

Thanks. I don't even know where I read that, I know next to nothing about the brand. Maybe I just saw them around when I was home in the summer?

post #102399 of 109053

Australian; Sydney based. I recommend checking out their store in Glebe if you get the chance. Good folk. Melvin (one half of the SftM duo) is a champ.

I would avoid Silent. Most of the bottoms have guaranteed diaper butt because of the way the rear is cut, and they're generally made of the sort of jersey fabric it sounds like you want to avoid. Also not sure Yohji is right unless you want a lot of volume, though you can definitely find Yohji bottoms that aren't quite so large. But I say if you're going to go with some volume then go all the way. Makes for a really cool silhouette with a more fitted jacket like you're describing. This sort of thing:

Actually that SS12 set of style shots is one of my favorite they ever did because of all the Yohji pants they used. That Yohji season was so good. In fact, if anyone has some Yohji pants from SS12 they're looking to sell in size 2 feel free to message me (except the hakamas; those are too big).

You may also want to look at Comme des Garçons if you want an interesting poly or cotton fabric. And then a bunch of those brands like Lost & Found might work for you too. You could probably just go through the brand list at H Lorenzo and see what you find.

Wore my Peir Wu X Snowman pants today for the first time in a while and everything just felt right. They sort of have that effect every time I wear them.

Really big urge right now to switch out all my pants for some wider styles. Prob time to finally give Yohji a try...

don't know what kind of 'voluminous' you're looking for but Vibskov Jetlag trousers have a pretty well cut and elegant silhouette.  Slightly elongated rise, pleated and roomy seat/thigh with a taper at the knee to a slim but not skinny lower leg.  Easy to wear with both slim and oversize stuff on top.

I have the AW13(?) version which was in tencel, feels super comfortable.  I know they did a linen blend for this past season 

 

I see CDG's already been mentioned.

Any of the tech fabrics are terrible. Absolutely agree on the pricing too. It was in the space of a season or two they went from $300 pants to $800+.

post #102405 of 109053
thanks for recs guys. to clarify I'm thinking something evoking Asian martial art influences: pleated waist, relaxed throughout but no serious dropcrotch, no taper at bottom so it stays flowy. looked through hlorenzo and seems like I should keep an eye on old damir, yyph, christophe lemaire, ziggy chen
