SS09 - Dinner outfit

YYPH SS09 Look 21 DR. Y. Y. Blazer - ( HV-J63-105 ) - one of the standout pieces on the Runway ( Wire & Asobu will agree ), creating extra drama toomwink[1].gif 68/32 wool/cotton dry hand medium weight fabric, fully lined in cupro, 3 usual inside pockets, flapped bottom pockets. Size 2, long silhouette with a structured fit. Notch lapels, 3B closure, 4B non-working sleeves, 2 back vents aid movement. Lots of Yohji Boosters:- large inside left buttoned pouch, large inside right buttoned patch pocket, extendable sleeves via undoing cuff stitches ( kept on since sleeves long enough ), white stitched DR. Y. Y. on left cuff, white stitched KAMIKAZE below collar. Suiting at its best, I need the matching pants.....badly.

 

YYPH SS09 Multi Button Pants - ( HV-P15-010 ) - 73/26/1 cotton/ramie/polyurethane dry hand blend, the best I can do to match the blazer. Parker has these toosmile.gif Size 3, huge waist with a sharp taper at the hems. Buttoned fly, usual side pockets. Additional front pocket on each side accessed via 3-buttoned flap. Same arrangement at the back pockets.

 

YYPH SS03 Look 18 Floral Suspenders ( HQ-Q02-298 ) - 60/40 rayon/polyurethane, striking floral pattern, clip fastening

 

Basic SS Tee, Dr. Martens 1460 all black 8 eyelet boots.

 

Some motion shots

hey guys.
think this is my first post and would like to say thanks for this highly informative thread. its a godsend.

well, i've admired yohji from afar for quite sometime but alas i jumped the gun the other day after sighting this jacket on ebay. i lurked this forum for sizing advice and i guess it allowed me to go ahead confidently even though its a size 4 and i dont stand too tall(5'6). i believe it fits me nice. not sure what season it is though, according to wire.artist it may be SS94/AW00/SS07. so if anyone can shed their knowledge i'd be grateful.



 

fit: yyph/uniqlo/cdgh/drmartens

 

 

i've read plenty on why you guys love his work so much and i thought i'd share my views too. from day one of seeing his stuff, his anti-fit philosophy deeply resonated with me because of its rebelliousness. it didn't need shock value like the punks or bells and whistles to communicate a strong attitude for the wearer, rather, the literal space in his clothes allowed for the attitude of the wearer to blossom. his work is full of details, but yet they are still so subtle(like the above jacket i am wearing, the asymmetrical double layer only gets noticed if i make a large movement) and it relates to how i've read that he believes that his clothes are for the everyday man. what is a huge difference though is that it is for the everyday man who believes he is special yet the subtlety of his clothes speaks of a humble quality. and this was a good time for me to discover yohji because of this country i'm in(singapore), where society is straight-laced and an underlying frustration over the gap between rich and poor exists and precedence of luxury over comfort. i hope it wasn't too much of a bore and that you enjoyed my take on it.

Hey blackakira, Wire is 99.99999% right. Numerical sizing wasn't available in 94 so you can rule that out. Secondly looking at Rex's picture ( Rex Woo runs that eBay ) it's half lined so it's unlikely to be an AW piece. Thirdly Yohji did a few of those double layer blazers on the SS07 Runway ( I have Look 2 which is an example ) so it should be SS07. Anyhow it's pretty damn stupendous to grace anyone's YY wardrobe smile.gif

Btw I believe we've seen each other's instagram smile.gif

Edit:- NO ONE does DR. Y. Y. better than Wire.Artist

after a few wears I (grudgingly) had to decide that these yyph trousers just weren't for me, they're incredible, just don't fit in with my style all that well. So i'm just posting them here as an interest check, just looking to get back what I payed for them really EDIT: solddd

Can anyone tell me which season this is from: 

 

 

 

I love the sashiko stitching and I want to see how it looked when worn. 

post #2982 of 5741

Is there anyone here who is tall and skinny who can pull off Yohji? I notice his work more on shorter guys, and I love some of his pieces and his aesthetic but am scared that I am too tall to make it work (6'4 150 lbs).

I think so, a lot of his models are actually pretty tall and skinny too. Might take some experimenting

On an unrelated note, i ran into this non Y jacket but I think it could be incorporated into a Yohji outfit. Was hoping one of the pros could give me their take?



Its the zipper and the little hint of red that makes me think of some Y stuff from past collections

i am tall like you but with a bit more weight. about 170 lbs and yohji stuff fitted me best when i was slim like you. now lots of the stuff is a bit tight for me. :-)

try it on. size 3 or 4 must fit you perfect.

thanks for that, both of ya'. wire, what did you mean by killer page? haha

and yeah, good photos on the 'gram david. that run down on how you reached that conclusion was so good, it made so much sense. i'm relieved too, the mobster theme running through that collection is insane.
