This is just strange to me. Could someone explain?
Having another play with Yohji.

Olney Hat, Topman espadrilles
See, now I see this as an excellent example of how something can look good, and look good over a long period of time (as in I doubt he'll look back at this photograph and think "what the hell was I wearing") without being in the some traditional context.
I can't see any details, and it's a lot tougher to recognize the quality of construction of SW&D items based off a picture alone, but from the brand, I'm sure the construction is top notch. The clothes look comfortable, there is nothing frivolous or silly about them, they fit him well, the colors are great. It's a fantastic fit. This is the kind of fit that makes me glad I lurk that thread. Between all that goth-ninja silliness (which I appreciate in its own way), you have something as wonderful as this.
As far as the 130 thumbs, the lurkers on that thread are way more thumb happy then those here. A combination of them being younger, less uptight, and perhaps a bit more brand oriented (maybe a necessity given the difficulties in divining the quality of SW&D clothes based on pictures).
