It is a translation issue, just like you will also often see stuff about "toothpick" Yamamoto as well.

I just noticed the seller of the AW07 Skull Man knit is an avid visitor of this thread. Very flattered ( should seek copyright and commission lol ) that the seller's description of the knit came from my post of the said knit, word for word......hilarious smile.gif

Yeah, I noticed that too... Is that just supposed to mean "tapered?"
post #2885 of 5740
I believe its a mistranslation of the word Yohji based on spelling? someone more knowledgeable can correct me of course biggrin.gif
post #2886 of 5740
Yep, the kanji is different but the reading/pronunciation for Yohji ("youji") and toothpick is the same, so when the brand name is written in katakana - i.e. not his personal name in kanji - it gets translated as "toothpick", hehe

maybe they just googled "yohji yamamoto skull man" :)) there its also bad side of giving away so much info. the starting price ;)

lol! david you got a shout out too... "* David TY!" after the description. Starting price isn't that bad though, some of these knits go for 30-40k on y!, + fees and shipping it gets even higher.

Already had communications with the seller who had provided a satisfactory explanation so everything is cool. As you and I discussed a few months ago, AW07 knits ( or any cool YYPH knit for that matter ) are hotly contested on Y!. I was comphrensively outbidded on the last AW07 lol. So don't think the seller has problem shifting that. Also don't mind giving detailed info, each has his own way of doing it. I just do it according to what Ivwri originally requested regarding posting fits smile.gif

Really? I haven't looked at the auction again after the seller and I had a little " chat ". I certainly didn't request any mention, if there is commission then .... oh yes please haha.

PS. check your inbox ( not this Forum's inbox ) smile.gif

nothing of interest to add except that I'm parting with some YYPH pants if anyone is interested spam[1].gif sadly I just don't find myself wearing them very often, and frankly I need the money for other things. kinda on the fence about letting them go, but it seems silly to hold on to them if I don't wear them much.

Yohji Yamamoto Regulation

 

Anyone seen anything about this? According to the yohji website..

 

Yohji Yamamoto is delighted to introduce his new line:
REGULATION.
 
A name connoting control, direction, order, supervision...
Indeed, this brand new line is playing with the theme of uniform, in order to deliver “clothes with discipline”.
 
A theme Mr Yamamoto is deeply familiar with, uniform being one of his favourite subjects: from military jackets and coats to clothes inspired from his early years, he definitely knows how to make the uniform desirable.
 
The line's label will feature the word “REGULATION” in capital letters, as if it were simply stamped on the original YohJi Yamamoto signature, announcing the simple and raw characteristic of this new line.
 
Around thirty styles will compose the REGULATION range for its first collection (S/S 2013). With lower prices and more casual style than the other two feminine lines (Yohji Yamamoto Femme and +Noir), REGULATION can satisfy women in their twenties, as well as women in their forties who might already be faithful customers of Yohji Yamamoto.
 
The exceptional nature and character of Yohji Yamamoto clothes have created a new kind of a uniform, the Yamamoto one, which the brand's believers wear in their own way.
Thus this appears as quite a logical result that Mr Yamamoto would eventually offer a collection considering uniform as a literal Leitmotiv.

It sounds kind of like a Yohji "basics" line. Too bad it is only for women....

 

This line makes me supremely jealous: from military jackets and coats to clothes inspired from his early years, he definitely knows how to make the uniform desirable.

^agreed

Hopefully if it takes off it will lead to a menswear line smile.gif

Even Y Femmes is fairly unisex isn't it?
