Those pants seem to have a lot of mileage worn on their own for sure. Maybe if you wear the jacket open and try to bring in the edge/weird with an interesting/untucked shirt or with different pants (high-waist, suspenders or something like that)?

Speaking of grey 3 button suits, this is one of my favorite presentations of one (from ss00). No specific detailing or lapel tricks or anyting, just formality broken down with overly long sleeves, stuffed (patch) pockets and stacked over leather sandals. These pants are totally different though.
On another note while on the topic of more formal 3 button suits, after 2 years of searching I just recently got my hands on the Dr Y.Y./kamikaze/newspaper blazer from SS09 (to finally complete the suit). Let me tell you, it's fucking perfect for travelling, totally negating any need for a bag due to the massive inner pockets. When I went to Vienna I fit my wallet, keys, passport, phone, book, boarding pass, pen and paper, etc. in there, and there was still a couple of pockets empty with enough space for a notebook, cigarettes and a bottle of whisky if one would be so inclined. The fabric is a bit more "elegant" than usual Yohji fare (I'm just so used to gabardine now) so I was worried it might bring up the formality a bit too much with the complete suit, but the ghetto tailored stitched up sleeve cuffs and the embroidery helped with taking it down a notch. Also it got properly broken in already the first night, danced for hours in some sweaty, smoke infused basement and then the jacket somehow ended up on the dirty concrete floor underneath some massive beams. After I finally managed to yank it out beaten and bruised I felt the formality had indeed been taken down a bit.
I would definitely like to get my hands on one of those jackets. Or if Yohji decides to do another iteration of it. Must be hella confusing for airport security I can imagine.
"Why does your jacket have so many compartments sir?"
what does it says on the label? looks women to me..
Found a Y's jacket I'm really considering trying out (below). It's size 2, which is what I assumed I would be since I normally wear a small or 46 (also, I'm 5'9", if that helps). But the shoulder-to-shoulder measures 16" and pit-to-pit is 18", which seems very fitted. I suspect it will be too small for me, unless there's something the measurements aren't telling me.
i found the one you posted on ebay. it's from dialcube and it's women jacket. they often got their jacket mixed up and use wrong images as references. tricky seller.
i'm thinking of buying this for the sake of it and if it's too small and funny on me will give it to my girl friend. http://www.ebay.com/itm/YOHJI-YAMAMOTO-Navy-Pant-Suit-SZ-S-M-100-Wool-Pleated-Pants-/160790882029?pt=US_CSA_WC_Suits&hash=item256fe226ed#ht_500wt_1197
