Thanks. I used to own quite a few sandals as they were what I used to wear mostly, but now I am essentially down to three. Still hunting for the SS12 Damir Doma ankle ones in black biggrin.gif.

On an unrelated note I remember someone mentioned using fromjapan for yahoo japan auctions. Is it OK to use? I ask because you have to deposit money beforehand and I was a little unsure about that. Probably shouldn't have been as I missed a really good deal on boots last night, sigh.

Well, I should be picking up the sunglasses I ordered from them either today or tomorrow so I have definitely not had any problems so far and their process is very straightforward -

Deposit funds, choose bid target, wait, receive email confirming win or loss of bid, money taken from deposit, email requesting you to choose your choice of shipping, pay from deposit or make separate payment, shipping happens...profit smile.gif.

Glad to hear someone who has actually used them for more than one purchase though.

awesome pics just came up on tumblr (maybe it is one of you!)

Recently leafing through Magnums excellent ‘Magnum Ireland’ I found a surprise near the back as the book moved into the 1990s; a series of strange monochromatic portraits set in rural Connemara, it turns out that In 1993 the famed Japanese clothing designer Yohji Yamamoto commissioned photographer Ferdinando Scianna to shoot non-professional models in Connemara wearing his clothing, the results are fantastic: beyond the clothing they capture the strange, wild timelessness that still exists in Ireland today and (presumably on purpose as he’s a noted influence on Yamamoto) echo the social portraiture of German photographer August Sander.

Yeah those are really nice! I reblogged the post actually, but dunno who runs the tumblr.

Having some problems with my card issuer so can't use my card online at the moment (really hope I don't miss out on some stuff I want to pick up before they get it working again) or would have picked up the book already.

I have a question for any of you that have picked up a pair of those 2012 low, blue, canvas sneakers. I usually wear an 8 1/2 or EU 43. Any idea which size in these sneakers would be the best for me? I'm still not sure, but I'm considering getting a pair.

I haven't bought those SS12 but I am sz 41 and wear YY in sz 2 so I think you need sz 4. Sz 3 will be very borderline.

I have a pair of SS09 low top leather sneakers which won't be a million miles away from these SS12.

ss12 ones ran tiny, from normally a 43 i took 44 and it still felt snug, but 45 was too roomy, and i guess they weren't up for the task of producing half sizes laugh.gif
post #3488 of 5822

Thanks for that info. Shah, do you recall what 44 and 45 corresponded to in terms of YY sizing? 4 and 5 perhaps? 

post #3489 of 5822
yup, 44=4 45=5

And is Yohji sized more based on height? 5'9-10 and I'm thinking a 3 may fit. However, I'm usually a slim medium so maybe need a 2.
2 = 38
3 = 40?

Not looking at anything but for future reference redface.gif

This just popped up...should i??

This looks like a Y's blazer from the SS08 Collection. Beware of really slim cut for that season, especially small armholes mean chest can be tight and misleading by just looking at the measurements alone.

Hi guys just wanted to ask for some help.

 

I am purchasing some Yohji trousers towards the end of this month and I am trying to find some oversized plain tees that fit with the aesthetic can anyone point me in the right direction? somewhere fairly cheap as I am hoping to bag a few.

 

I am a student so unfortunately cannot spend big on an all Yhoji wardrobe but hoping to get a nice coat by Christmas. 

 

Love the thread and thanks in advance.

Forgot I had ordered this. Only thing I am keeping from my recent order redface.gif

Size 3 fits well.

I'm use Muji t-shirts as a staple. Either their organic cotton ones (they do a longsleeve version too), or the ones that come in the double pack. Sizing up one seems to give a comfy fit, but of course you can size up more. Plus they have their heat control stuff in now, which fits way better (longer sleeves and nicer armholes) than Uniqlo heattech.
