re Eason: Teger is correct but I have no hate. He was pretty much my idol when I first joined.

Notice the adverb "so"? As in "so good". As in, nobody does it better than he. Which is true, imo.

I take it that you haven't been around here long enough to see asobu's fits? Because they are amazing.

And who else really tries to do Yohji besides those two, anyway?

When I posted this, I also had in mind random examples from the internet. And there's more people in the Yohji thread. Also, Shah does it often.

i've posted maybe two or three fits which had Y's jackets paired with other stuff, not really the yohji aesthetic and nothing from mainline so not sure why you thought this was a valid point to make. Not taking away from naija boy he's fantastic but there are plenty others who do it well too, namely asobu and wireartist, and mail-moth has a couple yohji outfits that are great.

Yohji aesthetic is fun but hard to wear in any office environment. frown.gif

J Lindberg offshoot line BLKDNM has some great rayon U necks.  They aren't see thru and they fit long and slim.  I plan on picking up one of those AA loose fit summer shirts I like that its not a super exaggerated U neck

Been getting a lot of use out of this camo blazer during the workweek lately.

Are you seriously trying to tell me, Mr Moo, that you work in an "office" environment where Hakama pants and a YY1820s Beau Brummel-inspired coat, training behind you like a ship under full canvas, will be frowned upon?  Where exactly do you work?

This is simply boring and uninspiring. There's nothing interesting or particularly well-fitting about this outfit. A generic 20-something out of college dude in a typical democratic city. (and yes, I realize he's not in one, just saying...)
I don't see why you posted this at all.
Edit: To elaborate what I don't like about this fit:
1) The undershirt poking from under the sweater isn't doing it for me.
2) The sweater (or whatever it is) screams banana republic. The lighter color at the bottom and darker on the top makes the wearer look fatter in the mid section, and he's not a buff guy to start with.
3) Droopy shoulders, sleeve pockets and hacking pockets on the windbreaker add to that affect making him look he's "melting to the ground" for a lack of better explanation.
4) The oversized sleeve opening right before the cuffs seems out of proportion to the rest of the outfit/body type.
5) The pants are too long to break nicely and too short/wide to stack in a good way. Therefore, they fit like your typical american dad jeans.
6) The shoes are ugly with their contrasting red shoe laces and raised toes.
There, I hope I'm being more objective. That said, I liked many of his outfits, just not this one.
You know, I don't agree with basically any of what acecow said (about nicelynice, that is; I'm on board with Ivwri's Yohji fit being awesome) or how he said it, but I think I can understand where he's coming from on most of those points. Actually, I agree that the fit of the jeans is a little sub-par.

Probably for many others too.

Fortunately, not widely available.

I realise the irony in me saying this.

This is sort of an experiment for me today: super loose silhouette. makes me look short, but I like how lounge-y it is. super light wool crepe is nice and breezy for spring. mystery brand suit, white linen band collar shirt, leather tennies.

edit front view for mr snow
