with a bit of something like YY literacy we might have to listen to what he said about the relationship to integral in the recent wwd interview. now it's not he that can decide on the day he quits, in the first place.
the days he was able to behave according primarily to the bigaku* engraved on his heart are long gone. so, as long as there is some demand around, which is really a fortunate thing, he may have more opportunities to offer what customers want him to make than share his vision, what he wants or needs to make. though it's a normal thing to do as a company, just less of what he used to do, as we know he is good at making, not selling.

they are nice cut. i might finish my ss99 slim pants with same hem as yours or at least similar style. its good to have at least one slimmer wool trouser in your yohji wardrobe.

interesting you say that ... because i was looking up some ss10 stuff and this CS popped up which made me think of those pants

yohji-yamamoto-coming-soon-ss-2010-2.jpg

but shouldn't it be the case that CS looks like YY rather than the other way around ? well not like i'm going to pick anything up, trying to get things together for a nice purchase in a short while ...

Well the season you posted it's the season when Yohji bankrupted. The collection didn't had show just lookbook with very few looks and no gabardine at all (alfonso mention this fact). I don't think there was any major effort and concept behind it, that's why I compared it to CS. Also I don't think the point of CS it's to look like Pour Homme, more like cheaper alternative of y's for men.
post #3145 of 5952
I liked the CS lookbooks a lot. I think for its price it was awesome. I understand how for mainline prices its nothing to get excited about though.

It's true that SS10 was straight after the bankruptcy/takeover and it only had a studio presentation. While there may not be any gabardine in the collection, I don't see that as a criticism since its SS afterall. It's a " transitional " season for sure, no ground breaking designs, no wow factor, no theme; however some pieces are still good, wearable stuff with no detriment to the construction ( judging from 2 Tees, 2 blazers and a pair of pants I have ). It's important to mention the retail ( in UK ) from that season was the cheapest I've seen ( £900 retail for a YYPH linen/cotton blazer is almost unheard of considering how much dearer SS09 blazers were ). In fact the price points were somewhere between bona fide YYPH and Y's ( defunct since AW09 ), so were the cuts of most pieces. So you get what you pay for really.

They work well enough in someone's YY focused wardrobe, just need to pay the right prices.

Edit:- there was at least one SS10 blazer in 100 gabardine, seen it in person if I remember rightly, great piece :-

These aren't yohji, but I wanted to see what the antifit crowd thinks of these silent pants. They were very inexpensive and I wanted to try some bottoms that were antifit but a little less dramatic than my hakamas.

I'm wearing them pretty high waisted with a belt. I like how they fit, think I might get them tapered so that they stack better. Thoughts?

I was also thinking I should get the waist taken in, or get a looser t shirt/top as the belt buckle highlights the wrong area of my torso laugh.gif


post #3148 of 5952

I think the color makes them a bit tricky but the cut also seems a bit... pedestrian.... Have you tried cuffing them?

post #3149 of 5952
Yeah that's one reason that I wanted to try tapering them, so the change from loose top block to ankle is more pronounced. I'm also wearing them pretty high, they have an 15 in front rise, so I could sag them and they'd look more dropped, but I have a long torso already so Im not sure it looks too good. Will keep experimenting with them. Cuffing is an option but the fabric is so light that I don't know if cuffs would stay in.

I actually like the color, brings some variation to my black white and grey wardrobe biggrin.gif
post #3150 of 5952

I think they look fine! Although I'm not a big fan of the colour myself. I don't think it goes too well with black. But that's just my personal preference.

 

Also, I think you could wear them a bit lower than you do now, without losing your legs. You look fairly tall and thin as far as I can see, and some extra droop would only be nice. The only issue then is that it would increase the stacking at the bottom, which I think is perfect already. I would try lowering the waist and do a little cuff as previously stated.
