On another note. I loved SS13.
Will be hoping to get these two looks
Well that's the trouble when I am only 1.68/1.7m tall :( So short cutaway blazers divide the short frame in a more defined, better way. But if it's short & cutaway, it needs to be boxy too. Just my preference. Rolling pants imo gives out a casual vibe which is what wearing YY is all about in my book.
I do like some long blazers if the proportion is right but some long coats are impossible to pull off even it's size 2. I guess it adds to the challenge, and ultimately the satisfaction of getting the right stuff in auctions untried because most of those Runway Looks are modelled by people 1.80m plus...like yourself
Just to chime in about coming soon: I have several pieces, all bought from yoox. I think the fit is generally pretty true to the other yohji lines and the quality is decent. If you want some basic stuff in a "yohji" fit, I'd recommend it. It of course mixes well with other yohji stuff and definitely much cheaper. It cannot in any way live up to mainline or even y's levels of quality, but I think it is generally worth it at the low sales prices. For whatever reason the line just failed to connect. Probably because in order to appeal to the younger "streetwear" crowd it was either too formal, too expensive, too plain, too baggy, not trendy enough or any combination of those. In the US, I can only remember retailers here carrying the first couple of seasons of the line before they all dropped it. At the time jackets were retailing in the $600-$700 range or something ridiculous.
i tried on some cs jackets and as some others said they are quit true to size. i am 6' 2 and 88 kg and 52 or 54 was ok but fitted in shoulders.
i think not everything (every season) is oversized cuted. i saw a lot of pieces that were slim cutted as well. especially y's stuff. but even this year very nice jersey jackets were slim cutted
so they dont fitted me even in a 4. if i would buy bigger the sleves are on my knees. :-)
past seasons are more oversized. i have a long silk jacket with size m and it fit me. trouser is a size 2. much bigger than today stuff. :-)
i bought near all the stuff in yy shops. bad for money good for trying on. ;-) because a lot depends of the cut and it fits not everybody even if the size is right.
so the best will be you know the cut if not i would look for something cheaper from older seasons so it gives you not that deep impact in your wallet. :-)
