Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 234

+1 to what syed said about Muji tshirts. I haven't bought anything from them in a while though, but I remember their stuff being pretty nice.

I wouldn't say you needed oversized t-shirts to go with Yohji though. It depends on what you want to go for of course, but I have quite a few round neck t-shirts that look pretty alright with Yohji clothing that I have picked up from a number of different brands. Some are figure hugging and others are cut pretty loose, but none of them would be considered oversized I don't think. Merz B Schwanen makes pretty substantial tshirts and I have a few of those. Probably more expensive than Muji stuff, but I am sure they should be available on sale.

FINALLY!!


Will take photos of the suit once it arrives.

And as a mini-review of my own experience with Fromjapan, bottom line is I am impressed. Very seamless transaction from start to finish. I chose their safer packaging option and got the sunglasses in this relatively big box filled with bubble wrap, lol. Feel bad as it seemed like such a waste to package a pair of sunglasses in something so big, but the packaging was done very well. So if anyone else feels like using them I can recommend them based on my initial experience. Made the purchase of the zipper suit with them as well so will see whether the second transaction works out.

A possible problem that could come up with them I think is that since some sellers on Y! cancel sales to Y! accounts that are proxies, it is possible that this may happen with their own accounts considering they seem to be named pretty closely to the site name, but I dunno. Just something to think about as well.

Just got these on yoox for 220. Not too bad a price for 100% wool and new(ish) in a size 3

Sorry to clutter up the thread with this, but I've not had any luck finding the answer myself:

I ordered a YY jacket from Rakuten global, and paid for just the cost of the item at the time of purchase. Yesterday I received an email from the store confirming the additional cost of shipping. Does anyone know if I have to reply to this email with a confirmation? The google translation is ambiguous enough that it seems like I only have to contact them if I want to change something.

Here's the jacket in case someone can offer some info on it's pedigree: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Nice blazer with trick lapel, think I've seen this on Y! a while ago. How much you paid for it roughly? For me it's impossible to tell for sure the season but if it's fully lined then likely to be AW, if it has numerical sizing ( pretty sure of it ) then 00s. It may even be AW11.......

Sorry never used Rakuten global so can't help you, for me SharpService all the way despite its recent erratic problems.

Thanks for the info David. It does in fact have numerical sizing.

I paid around ~¥8700 (not including shipping). If/when I receive it, I'll take some photos of the details and label codes

Regardless of season, any post-2000 blazer won for less than 9k + shipping is super good.

Hey TW, I have only made one order via Rakuten, and when they sent me the shipping notification I just had to reply in basic English that I accepted the shipping fee and they could go ahead and charge my card. That was basically it. I added an addendum saying that they could communicate in English if they could, but that was all.

It may vary from store to store, but I think that they all follow a basic format. Hope this helps. Nice pick up by the way smile.gif

T, I've used rakuten before and yep you have to pay for the shipping separately, I think just email back and ask how you can pay (unless they've already given a method to you) and pay it, and you should get confirmation that they've received it, and then that they've shipped it. Communication is a bit hard because it's all through google translate, but it works out most of the time.

^ glad you got the zip-suit, Ivrwi. I'm sure it will look great on you.


a few odds & ends from my Yohji folder.



Yohji as a "trad". In fashion college 1960.




Apparently Aimee Mann wore a lot of Yohji in the 80s (warning: hilarious period video).




12-year old illustrator did a series of fashion portrait t-shirts. hehe, funny Yohji.

Just a reminder that if anyone sees this jacket in a 2 or 3, please PM me. Trying to match the pants I've got. I think it's from SS09 maybe...? Epic Ivwri fit:
