Congrats on the SS09 suit K! Know you have been looking out for that for a while now. Great thing that it was the complete suit too and not just the jacket. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The detail shots on your gf's own setup looks amazing. I was really blown away the first time I handled Yohji's mainline stuff for women. The attention to detail and the construction is truly something else.

Thanks, and yes I was planning to buy the jacket long, long time ago. Luckily I won the whole suit for fantastic price - again. The only problem its that I'm not sure how I will pay for it :D. Not looking forward to Hide's invoice. 

 

Femme stuff its awesome. In the end of the summer I was bored buying stuff for me, so I started buying for my gf :D Found some pretty amazing things.

Thanks man, but you know I am nearly half century old? Y-3 is my limit I'm afraid. I'll leave the Reeboks to the young dudes wink.gif

 

And I'm glad you won this suit. I knew you would love to go for it on Blitzonla but I didn't send you the link cos you said you were broke.....sly.gif You have done much better than I have, you bought the suit....for 29K+fees? The blazer alone was 134k retail in Japan. Also this escaped the infamous Rex's last min snatch ( his speciality ) and Hide came good in the end as well. It's fate :)

I'm glad too, can't fully enjoy it at the moment because as I said, not sure how I will pay for it baldy[1].gif I tried to limit myself looking at yahoo and rakuten because there it's always bargains, but the 2-3 hours browsing were enough to find it. Yes the price its pretty good and was surprised that no one else try their luck. Rex haven't snatch anything from me, yet. Maybe because I always try to get bargain from bad photos and distributions and he its aiming in easy recognizable garments.

These three pieces had all better go to the same size-3 Yohji devotee, because I want -- nay, demand -- to see the fit pics with the whole suit.

Are we suddenly talking in yen?

 

Or is that a 29 thousand-dollar suit? *vomits*

post #3324 of 5779
damn, those are some fantastic scores for your girl kiko. i'd love to search for my mum some yohji, but absolutely clueless on sizing so that puts me off.
i don't think ive posted a proper fit (the previous one was a shoddy iphone shot) so here's a clearer shot of the jacket i got of comma.comma.
I think for a long while, this will be the daily uniform since all that I have else are just extra tshirts//I recently committed to shedding my whole wardrobe.

HT-J20-003
100% Cotton
60% Cotton, 40% Linen for the inside of the double layer
100% Cupro lining


*could someone pm me as to how to spoiler images?

Just to entice potential interested parties, the 3-piece is this, YYPH AW05 Look 13, great stuff imo, unusual colour, striking.

No fit pics (yet?), but I've promised some people to post some better pics of a few recent purchases so here goes!:


aw06 pleated suit-

well, I'm still stumped on what collection this suit is from. The tags say aw06, and that makes sense when handling the fabric. But I have a nagging and unconfirmed suspicion that originally it might be from aw00 and was re-issued in 2006 from some reason. I know they've done this from time to time. The construction details says aw00 to me, as well as the cut of the pants. Not that it matters foo.gif

The fabric is relatively heavy gabardine (101) and has an incredibly drape and soft hand. Honestly, this is one of the better gabardines I've seen from him and I'm definitely looking to pick up some additional piece in this fabric at some point later on. The pants have two front pleats on each side, the outer ones are located on the side and goes deep down the side of the leg, covering the side pocket. Adds to the silhouette with the gentle taper and of course changes in movement.

and these aren't very recent, got them in august. I meant to put up some pics before but never got round to it.

ss06 cropped suspender pants. Color came out a bit dark in my photos despite my best efforts, in person the color is a clear deep navy and the print has a sort of burnt yellow/pink/plum tones. The print seems to be have been made on the reversed side, where the prints are more distinct, a clear yellow, and fabric is also a bit smoother. Relaxed fit, wide cut, fabric is very soft and moves pretty well. Suspender buttons on the inside of the waistband, width of cuffs can be altered through a strip of fabric and buttons. Managed to wear these for about two days before it got too cold, but I'm looking forward to wearing the hell out of them next spring/summer!

Very nice haul asobu.

Love the detail shots of the print pants in particular. I definitely would like to add more wool gab to my wardrobe soon and stuff like that suit you picked up are definitely the sort of thing I am looking for. Looking forward to the fit pics biggrin.gif

Just got this Y's turtleneck about a month ago. It is super thick and really warm. I'll put up some detail shots when I get the chance, because the bottom hem is really interesting and resposible for twisting the sweater.

 

Ben your latest fits are looking really good. Keep it up!

 

I just got done watching an interview with Yohji perhaps it hasn't been posted before?
