the rest of my pieces are bought with good timing and lots of luck. 

Well if anyone can pull off that suit that's you :) It's good to wear it over the SS11 long polo shirt ( I have two, one black, one purple but yet to figure out how to not look like a woman lol ).

 

Also you will def have dibs on those AW07 Erotic Coats haha ( and for that matter those AW12 last 2 Runway coats lol )

I know I posted this before, here's a better picture. Wonder if they are all PH pieces?  The 2nd one on left looks rather feminine ( and nice ).

 

The one on the far right will be mine ...... one day confused.gif

do anybody know nice shoes to wear with yohji with a wider fit?

most of the shoes i like are to tight for me. the insoles should be removable because i need special ones.

 

i tried some redwings but my feets will die until they fit me well. they are just too stiff. any ideas?

Depends if you're talking about dress shoes or sneakers.... and your budget?

Dr. Martens are always good with Yohji, they are tough to break in though at first. but are indestructible and cheap. Y-3 are very good IMO for the casual look. Moma are reasonably priced and may work well.

I recently came across Pataugas when we were in Paris, if you look past the round logo they give out a very good utilitarian vibe and I will get some in due course, cheap and cheerful.

I can see those going with some military style Yohji looks. In a similar vein, Palladium boots are another budget option if you want something casual/rugged. I bought the black canvas version for something like 30 usd. They also do some designer collabs with more premium materials.

This coat is super awesome; I've been wearing it a ton. It is really fun when the wind really starts to blow. I also love to walk with my hands in the pockets, it just feels awesome. I always feel like dancing!

Yeah I shall try Kiko, both of my 2 polos are brand new, apparently they are different in length, the purple one is much shorter ( 4" ) than the black one. Your look was good, blazer + polo + cropped pants.

Edit:- wow Erolson Hugh, the Erolson Hugh of S.I. Shadow Project? The shop in Beak Street is very nice.

Wire artist kindly sent me a link to an auction of the AW2007 coat I posted about earlier in the thread, but I don't think I'll be able to find the money to bid for it in time, but it's such an awesome coat so one of you guys should buy it and post fit pics so I can drool over it:

i like both the more casual look and the rugged military look. price is not the important point as long as they really fit me well.

 

i tried dr martens on yesterday but the model i tried on was too tight. but i liked the look. unfortunately they are not that easy to get where i live. just 1 model available.

i have about 7 pair y3s and they are the shoes i wear most when i wear yohji but i like this military rugged look too.

 

i will try out the moma shoes. i like the look. pataugas are nice too. have to find some shops. thank you.

 

@ parker. funny. yesterday when i tried the doc marten i saw some palladium and thought they could fit. :-)

 

thanx guys. if anyone have other recommendations.  :-)

I am a big fan of simple canvas/leather shoes. Spring Courts, hi and lo Chuck Taylors, Keds, Vans etc. Oh, and jazz shoes à la Repetto.

Hey guys, been a while since I've posted here but just wanted to see if anyone had the general e-mail address for the London store? Doesn't seem to be listed on Yohji's site. Thanks in advance!
