Only able to make it out to Barney's. Wish they had more interesting selection from Yohji at the LA store. Yohji fit pics as promised (and an AnnD one too, to get an opinion on all):

Overall, I'd say that the Yohji Fit isn't quite for me. I still love the concept and will try it on when I see it, revisiting the fit when I can.
That would've been awesome to try on.
Thanks for the advice and observations. I think I'm just not ready to have the very loose silhouette on me, quite yet. I'm getting there slowly, but the idea of creating volume around me and effectively shortening my proportions is very new. They definitely feel comfortable and the hakama pants did make me feel very "romantically traditional" if that makes sense. It's more my perception of standing out among the crowd that I'd need to be used to.
I definitely won't give up on the idea though.
just personal opinion, i think you should start building the yohji "fit", "aesthetic" with tops first eg. shirt/jackets. the trousers are always hard to wear at the beginning. when i bought my first pairs i took them in so they are not that baggy, now i want them to be even looser. good way to prepare yourself for looser fit it's to watch this http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040522/ beautiful wardrobe.
