If Hide had placed a bid for you already then it's ok as long as no one's outbidding you cos he can't up your bid until at least 6pm Japan time.
I sent SS a bidding request and received an automated reply regarding the maintenance.
Someone on SZ SS Proxy thread mentioned contacting Hide directly on firstname.lastname@example.org as an alternative. I tried 3 hours ago but not heard anything ( but it's past midnight there though! )
To echo Ivwri's brilliant fit with the Ronin Pants, I have received an iteration of them ( one of my many target grails ) lately. Since I don't have an exquisite blazer like that SS09, this is my way of doing it, the all-black way, the Run-way.

YYPH SS08 Look 45 Faux Vest Frock Coat - ( HM-J45-212 ) - Look 45, J45, how apt. 50/50 cupro/bamboo, unique fabric, deep black with a slight sheen, feels like double-layered rayon. Size 2, half body, full sleeves in cupro. Faux vest 8B closure, the attached outer layer being cutaway & open fronted, collar fastened with 1 button + 2 clips. French working cuffs. Chest and side flapped pockets. Long vent at the long back. Super dramatic but super nice. A true Archive piece.
YYPH SS08 Look 43 Suspender Pants - ( HM-P34-071 ) - 100% thick grade all season cotton, size 3, no belt loops with hook closure. Adjustable waist with buttons on each side. Detachable functional braces with 5-way button adjustment. Side, cargo and back pockets all button flapped. Very roomy upper leg with very low crotch, tapered lower leg width adjustable with 9-eyelet lace and zip at the front and back respectively. OTT construction, very thematic, superb silhouette. Dangling braces give extra oomph.
Whilst the pants, with braces or sans, can be worn separately like Ivwri did, the frock is too focused and needs the Ronin pants ( and Look 2 pants I have too ) to harmonize the strong vibe. Not everyday attire, but very coherent and complete for when one's in the mood.
YYPH AW11 Monkey Boots - ( HP-E05-754 ) Size 2, 15 eyelet lace closure, robust Vibram soles.
CDG x H&M Black Cotton LS shirt.

benesyed, don't roll those sleeves =) they are ruining the relaxed fit, also with the lapel up makes it tacky. the rest its really nice =) one black on black hi-top converse and you are the man.
fireflygrave, the first its good coat, just buy size bigger and i think it will go well with hakamas etc. the duffle coat its very "heritage" and will look out of place.
david, love that. its very dramatic and intense as you stated at the end of the post. perfect for saturday dressed lunch/dinner up. would love to see it with running shoes, though ;)
few things that i bought/received. all are set-ups. + the aw04 zipper suit.
aw03 handstiched suit
