Some photos from Yohji's S/S2013 showroom:
I really hope that the "FOR SALE" jacket will be on sale! I'd buy it instantly!
Hey Parker, like your choices! Maybe I can share some info with the pieces you chose....
The first section of AW07 was the knit insert series where knit panel(s) were married with gabardine to create a unique look. Those pieces are highly sought after in Y! auctions and generally regarded as grail pieces ( I want one myself ) Here's the Look 8 you picked in detail, crazy constructions. They are generally cut big. Wire ( his name keeps popping up, the Master lol ) used to have Look 1 and 2.
AW05 Look 15
Well this is not Look 15 but Look 20 to illustrate your shirt query. A lot of shirts used on the Runway were kinda shirt knit hybrids, Look 20 shirt knit ( again Wire had it, now mine lol ) Cotton top half with buttoned ( detachable ) wool knit panel and collar and cuff inserts as well allowing different silhouettes. Absolutely incredible construction. I think ( but not sure ) Look 15 shirt is an iteration but worn with the knit panel detached as apron.
Finally that AW09 Look 3 you picked is very likely reversible as well and available as a suit ( again I think Wire had it ).
This is not a Top 3 or 5, just something I wore last night
YYPH SS06 Look 9 Zipper Blazer ( HR-J51-005 ) 100% cotton, 4 metal button closure, bottom 4 buttons non-functional. Cutaway style but long and boxy cut which I like. 3 buttoned cuffs. Small back vent. Trick roundhouse curved double plastic zips on shoulders ( a tailoring feat ) allowing different looks. 2 short double zips ( unseen ) under armpits for ventilation? Totally unlined because of the zippers.
YYPH SS06 pants ( HR-P14-005 ) . Same fabric, metal button on closure and back pocket so they are part of a suit ( even though it's not styled like that on Runway ) Size 2 runs very big.
A black SS Tee, CDG H+ belt and some cheap imac nubuck sneakers to finish off
Talking of AW05, this looks like the shirt on Look 34:-

Post the picture of that blazer if you can find it. Embrace the oversized fit
Thanks for the comment. There are so many details that Runway pictures fail to reveal sometimes. No comparison to actually owning and wearing the stuff :)
Yeah that AW05 shirt knit is crazy indeed ( I always say Yohji doesn't make stuff like these anymore ). Last time I counted there are 26 buttons on it. Here is a better picture. I'm sure Wire Artist won't mind me being his PR manager posting his pic ( ROCKING it with the AW07 Look 2 knit coat )
