Anduru, overall pieces aren't that bad but not gellin' together in terms of colors and "styles"
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nice boots, but the color's too similar to the pants IMO. Edit - maybe colors aren't that bad together. I suggest trying a pant roll and putting on some chunky mid-brown boots - see Aeglus or ManOfKent's pics since they do that a lot
Pants aren't actually that bad really. Little baggy in the crotch+waist area but wearable for sure at your stage
Sweater color's nice but too dressy because bottom half says military and top half says I want to look GQ but don't quite know how
shirt collar looks too small, could be the pulling from the sweater
also the black (?) shirt and blue sweater don't quite really work color-wise. Maybe there's a way to work these together but it'd be pretty advanced stuff.

keep pants and change boot color and then go with a chunky sweater or cardigan
or
keep sweater, swap shirt to white (go back to basics) and add casual wool pants with a casual leather shoe

(Yohji people please correct me if I'm wrong. I've wondered about this myself actually.)

Well, it is generally a combination of both. Late 19th century and early 20th century Western menswear (suits, shirts, Charlie Chaplin, early 20th century German rustic living, etc.) as well as varied Japanese influences (kimonos, drop-crotches, the concept of "ma" applied to clothing, use of silk in clothing, more recently the hakama pants etc.). That, I believe, is archetypal Yohji for men stuff.

I just did a post on the Yohji thread about one of Yohji's influences called August Sander, a German photographer. If you are interested, you should have a look in there.

Thank you Ivwri. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif It was August Sander I was thinking of . I remember Yohji thumbing through his book of photography on "Notebooks on Cities and Clothes."

People like synth, snowman, shah, fuuma, tween, parker, MoK, Lane etc. do participate in the thread by commenting on people's fits, giving thumb ups, offering advice and critique, troll and even get into some of the flame wars that go on here. There are a few highly regarded posters who are just not on the forum much at all - asobu, platypus et al - and when they are, I guess posting pics is a way of participating in the thread and even then, they don't do much of that.

Pretty much. I check approx 2 threads - one of which I do contribute to - and this is one of them, but I only read it every 3-4 days or so and skim through to see cool fits and try to avoid the recurrent boring shitstorms as much as possible. I didn't know there's a certain quota of advice per thumb that I need to fill. I post fits (rarely) when I just like to contribute a little to this thread, from time to time, I didn't know I have a certain responsibilty just because a select few "liked" some of these. To be honest, I know what I like (i.e. how I like to dress) but I don't see myself as a good stylist that can give advice left and right to "improve" other outfits. Some probably think I'm stuck in the YY zone but I love a lot of the stuff posted here and I consider many to be much better dressed than I am. Because I don't feel like quoting and commenting on outfits posted 5-10 pages back I basically just use the thumb function.

Whenever people are asking about stuff I do know, or where I can help, I try to be as helpful as possible about it. The YY thread is my fashunz forum oulet.

I like the relaxed-ness of the workboots + deconstructed blazer, but the red tee is too chirpy for the moody color palette of the rest of the outfit. obvious substitution would be a grey or white v-neck

Mix of things, a lot of Japanese elements in there. He does love this book a lot though (so do I):
