LN-CC buy looks good. Happy they picked up the engineer boots, definitely on the to-buy list at some point. Very interesting that they have some Costume d'Homme line. I thought it was discontinued?
Just received these monkeys and a gift Tee from a friend ( you know who you are ) so keen to try them on:-
YYPH AW08 Look 4 Navy DB Handstitched Blazer ( HE-J35-111 ) 64/36 wool/cotton blend, soft hand. Ivwri, Wire and Asobu are familiar with this. Wool/cotton is one of 3 ( I think ) fabric iterations of the handstitched series. Black is wool gab and grey is silk tweed I think. Amazing construction, handstitched lapels, shoulder seams and pocket flaps create a 3D effect, 6B DB closure, 2 back vents, tartan wool insert inside pocket flaps. Navy tinged buttons ( details! ). Snug cut so this is sz 3, great silhouette.
Don't have the matching pants yet so these have to do YYPH AW10 4.1 The Men Navy button cuffed pants ( HC-P06-023 ) 60/40 cotton/linen blend, brushed woven fabric. 4 button cuff hems allow different hem widths. Sz 2 hilariously big waist, the baggy cut complements the blazer I think.
YYPH AW05 Look 10 dark brown monkeys ( HN-E07-714 ), one step closer in completing Look 10 ( need the pants lol ), 10 eyelet lace closure, chunky heels, very very well made, so thank you my friend.
The complementary early 90s YYPH navy ( very soft ) cotton SS Tee and CDG H+ belt.
Nope, Costume has been chugging along. I guess they are selling enough? It is actually a bit underrated in my opinion. The designs are usually simpler, but the quality and yohji fit are definitely there. It looks like he's been branching out a bit with the line. Notice this pic from ss12, with a similar concept to this coming season's:
Kiko, the code for the pants on Look 31 is HB-P37-203 ( Cu/Tencel Twill I-Hakama A ). Any fabric code starting 2?? is rayon mix according to Ivwri's Code Archive. They are Type A Hakamas with belt loops but that's all the info I have :(Watch the Runway video will give you an idea of the cut.
I'm keen to see your SS06 coat
