I think the closest example I can remember is that 17 year old kid whose first fit was a towel scarf and then got mad love for rocking all RO. Which speaks to dude's point. But doesn't rationalize his fit progression.

My memory of that was everyone calling him a pretentious bellend and telling him to spend his money on drugs instead.

Your posts in this thread and Recent Purchases indicate that you're trying to push back against that truism. There are good Y! Japan deals to be had, but in browsing the Yohji thread, I'd say you either need to luck out or pony up for a lot of the good stuff. Your recent purchases feel like a hodgepodge of Yohji undesirables and alternate brand stuff that you (wrongly) think fits with the Yohji look.

Ask yourself whether or not you really wanna dive down the Yohji rabbit hole. Unlike a lot of other aesthetics you see around here, it's not one you can kinda, sorta go in on and expect good results. If you decide the Yohji look is what you want, then at least take a break from making so many purchases that seem to be based on either great deals or because the item might gel with Yohji in a vague sort of way.

I think the other thing people might not realize about older Yohji is that some of it is really really kitschy and unapologetically tacky. Dudes like me and Bene who are budget constrained have to pick pieces from these older offerings, and without a really focused idea of what will work you're going to end up with a lot of misses. I've totally fallen victim to this too, however I'm a lot less likely to post photos of my missteps than Benes (<- and I mean this as a sort of back-handed compliment).

IMO a lot of the poster boys I/we look to for Yohji fits have some combination of these traits:

1. extremely good taste (important when dealing with older yohji)

2. the ability to pull off almost anything (important when wearing dresses/hakamas/jelly fish pants)

3. have been buying yohji for a long time and really 'get' his themes

4. they are buying stuff from the newer seasons, which are not as dark and anti-fit

*obviously not all of these are specific to Yohji (ie. 1 & 2)

hendrix, I know you're melting down there in the Shire but come on, man. Find a plain loose white tank and you would have been in business.

This. I don't recall anyone particularly liking his RO fits.

Found an old pair of corduroy pants hanging out in the bottom of one of my dresser drawers, so I did this:

Oh, and here's the new sweater plus converse instead of boots (Click to show)

Gonna have to think about how to wear this sweater a bit harder—I didn't realize it would be cropped so short. I have a pair of navy trousers that would probably look far better here, but they need to be let out about a quarter inch in length. Time to get creative I guess?

As you know, it's actually a sweatshirt. Sneakers and faded jeans or cutoff shorts should work fine.

to me, a sweater generally has texture to it, and can be a variety of materials, while a sweatshirt is flat, and cotton, poly or cotton/poly blend.

hard to tell from your pics, but i would call it a sweater, especially due to the cuffs and hem.

sweater



or



sweatshirt

Dude, sweater is not the preferred nomenclature; cardigan, please.
post #84838 of 117670
well, for me, a cardigan has to have buttons. so the SNS is guess is a cardigan. but i would call anything else without buttons, in my aforementioned definition of sweaters, a sweater.

please dont kill me.
post #84839 of 117670

let's get pedantic because it's better than whatever was going on before.

 

sweater is knit, sweatshirt is woven maybe, since you can have knit cotton sweaters?

 

UK crew - where does jumper fall into this? is that just a sweater or sweatshirt that is a pullover of some kind?
