Well said, my ( used ) ones from Y! have lost most of the pleats already, perhaps they're meant to do that over time. Wire is dead right about the 010 fabric too, very delicate but does give a weightless feel, not for winter use. 30k is good if they're BNWT.

Funny how I adore the kitsch back design of the Skull Man knit, but find the front too gaudy.

X-post, from WAYWT

Coming Soon. I think I am wearing it fairly true to the brand fitting and image biggrin.gif

haha compared to some of those slim slim jeans id say these bad boys have some volume. Will oblige soon enough though biggrin.gif

But seriously though. Coming Soon was so under appreciated, I LOVE every piece I own. Its no mainline but its well made and most importantly a joy to wear!

Benesyed, the motion shot is nice ( you've listened to Ivwri ).

Merely a suggestion:- have you tried rolling up those pants? Rolling pants ( when they're too long ) is very much a part of the Yohji vocabulary IMO.

ooh im excited to try it out haha, thanks for the advice!!

I like that the suit fit is just between bohemian and more traditional fitted. I can't wait till im done with medical school and can afford some true yohji pieces.

I can not stress enough how jealous i am of you yohji vets biggrin.gif

Arrrr...so it's you Mr Shah that made Hans end that auction, that shirt is very nice, dual layer is top notch construction.

That AW08 Handstiched ( from M-M? ) looked very good on you. It's very un-Yohji cut ( snug chest wise ) but superb bell shaped silhouette with the double vents.

I think you have A LOT of things lol.

Shah, deets on the scarf please?

It looks like some of the scarves my relatives in Pakistan have smile.gif

they're freaking cool.

My gf is punjabi and her mum has some similar stuff. I always wonder why she bothers with mall brand stuff when she can just wear these amazing patterns and fabrics. Some of the silk pashminas her mum has would put some baller knitwear here to shame.

My brother picked up a sweater when he was in New York a few weeks ago.







YYPH AW12 Alpaca Blend Sweater ( HD-K14-176 )
60% Alpaca - 35% Nylon - 5% Wool
Size 3 (one size?)

Really soft hand. The weave and weight remind me of those Muji alpaca blankets - nice and snugly. The hems around the neck and cuffs, where there is a rib stitch, have a bit of an overlap where connecting to the main knit providing the illusion of a dual layer. There is also a cardigan version of this sweater that is slightly longer and has pockets (I think Hervia stock it).

YYPH SS12 Cotton Trousers ( HB-P31-017 )
100% Cotton
Size 3 (~35" waist)

Basic black trousers made from shirting cotton - relatively substantial, but they drape and move nicely thanks to the light weight. Four main pockets with additional painter's pockets on the side of the legs.

Muji soft collar shirt
Black canvas Spring Court trainers

Oh, and my mother gets me and my brother some seriously nice scarves from Kashmir whenever she is in Pakistan, although production is still really slow due to the earthquake a few years ago. I think there is something quite nice in buying a piece you know was made from animals grazed and raised in the same place as the wool is shorn, woven, and made into a scarf.
