Also tried on the silk jacket from last season in a 3 and it's so great but I'd need a 2. Plus, I'm not sure how much i'd actually wear it, ha. EM has a lot of 3s. I tried the napoleon jacket in a 2 again and i'd probably go as far as saying it was a bit tight for what I'd want.

That's a very good fit my friend so need to post more! I am an all-black disciple lol. So I take it the pants are SS12? You are based in Australia right? Since the seasons there are the opposite to our Northern Hemisphere ones does it mean the current season is SS12 there ( hence no sale? )? Which Napolean Jacket did you try on? Hope it's not the Look 32......confused.gif

Both those pieces are beautiful! Do you mind if I ask where you picked them up from?

I've actually been browsing rakuten and yahoo auctions the past few weeks looking for some simpler starter pieces, such as black or navy jackets + pants. I haven't had much luck though, and I'm starting to think my imagination is lacking, or I don't have enough familiarity with each season/line to look past the shitty photos, moth eaten garments and short sleeves...

Sharpservice informed me that they were having email server troubles for the past few days.  Apparently they are back, in some capacity or other.

 

If you're sick of lousy photos you could try browsing here:

 

http://www.playful-dc.com/products/lists9.html

 

Not exactly steals, but it still seems fair if something really catches your eye.  And, of course, the qualtiy photography helps with that a bit.  This seller is on !Yahoo as well as Rakuten, but may not necessarily list everything they've got on either of those sites, I dont think, and the photos for each garment are larger and more plentiful on their own site.

 

One thing that still frustrates me, though, is a general lack of product codes, everywhere.  I don't think I'm misguided in thinking that a little story, history, or whatever goes a long way towards selling a used item.  Of course most of the time we're just looking for those wonderful codes that end in -100, but still It would be nice to be able to determine the collection, and if the fabric matches anything you already own.

 

Speaking of the -100 fabric, I only have one old battered suit, possibly from the early 90's, with this code, and limited other jackets and pants to compare it to.  The -100 fabric seems to make a garment that is smoother to touch, with very regular weave, and wrinkles beautifully when flexed.  Is that everyone else's experience, or could age also be a factor, as the fibers are a little worn down and shiny over much of the garment?  It seems that even in the best photographs the different variations of Yohji gabardine look nearly identical, but that in person the -100 version jumps out and demands your attention because of the tactile joy touching and wrinkling it causes.

these feel very un-Yohji-esque to me, so I'm rather hesitant about sharing them. The first is a wool/cotton yyph suit, but formalized, if you will, but rolling the trousers up and tucking in a button-down shirt paired with more formal boots. It worked for what I was going for, though normally I'd let the hems just fall onto some sneakers and wear with a tee and cap !

the second is just a twist, I guess, loose damir trousers but not quite a yohji feel to it. I have to say, Mr. DavidLee, the jacket can be quite warm when closed -- you were right !

and i just included the third fit because I copy/pasted and because it's a very boxy-cut 90's era CDGH+ suit so it's fun and loose and roomy !

Hey Shah, the AW05 Look 10 fitted nicely, you managed to casualize such a serious piece successfully. Love the shoulders on you!

I was baffled by your CDG fit with your physique until I checked you wrote " 90s " lol. Nowadays I can't even button sz L properly on CDG H+ ....

That eBay seller also has a lovely pair of SS06 sneakers, Ivwri should go for them, perfect for Nigeria. If only they are my child feet size.....

Finally I'm very envious of where you live smile.gif

YYPH AW07 Look 2 Wool Insert Knit Coat ( HX-D03-959 ) 100% wool, soft and dense knit fabric. Size 4, incidentally the Runway used a size 2 on a 1.90m + model ( notice extra 10cm of pattern on shoulders on a 4 ).....so it fitted ultra-short on him and ultra-long on me, but it's ok, it adds to the drama. 6 Yohji Button closure to a high neck red collared finish, 2 side pockets, 5 rolls of intricate fair isle pattern ( 4 1/2 on a sz 2 rolleyes.gif ). Half-body and sleeves lined in cupro, Sleeves are the hybrid part of this piece, flannel wool type fabric ( 90/10 wool/nylon ), like a blazer. Simply stunning in motion. A very striking piece, and a grail. 

 

YYPH SS08 LS Tee - ( HM-T06-964 ) - super soft 100% cotton, beige/off white in color with dyed " dirt stains " giving a tired look. Size 3, wide black contrast neckline, right sleeve in black. " I SHOULD BE FREE " message at the front. 

 

Y's x Dr Martens AW08 Boots ( ME-E53-752 ) in black matt leather, size 2, triple diagonal stitches on toe box and side zips. 10 eyelet lace closure.

 

Y-3 AW08 Cargo Pants - size S, 100% heavy duty black cotton, drawstring waist, 2 cargo pockets.
