Sorry for boring sizing question, but which size am I in Yohji trousers at 6'3, 34" waist around the hipbones (where I wear pants)?

Thinking a size 3, but not sure since most measurements on rakuten were like 32" in that size.

post #3545 of 5926

Definitely not a size 3, you're on the tall end of size 4 imo (the sizing is based more on height than build, as most of his pieces are oversized anyway.)

post #3546 of 5926

size 4.

You are almost Runway model build......

Size 3 minimum for pants, but if you can find size 4, it maybe the better size.

I thought usually size 2 waist measures 32" so size 3 should be at least 34"

I was on Y-3 and looking at the runway looks for this past winter season and I was actually pleasantly surprised, I attached a few of the ones that I thought were pretty awesome/fun to wear
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







Last two and the first one are my fav (I can see david liking some aspects of the first one)

Y-3 Jones, and they are women's. Not that it will stop me acquiring them.

I'm not a Yohji expert, but from the few pairs I've had there's a huge sizing discrepancy from pant to pant.

If I remember right, I've had a pair of size 2s with a 36" or 38" waist, a size 3 with a 36" and I have a pair of Larges (which I guess would be a 4 numerically?) right now with a 32". The inseams were all more than long enough my 6'1" self.  So I'd go by the actual measurements rather than what size is supposed to fit.

I don't claim to be an expert but I will share what I know.....

 

Firstly it depends whether we are talking about Y's/Y's for men or YYPH. The former tends to be slimmer in cut for the pants ( and everything for that matter ) especially ones from the early 00s. YYPH pants are always generally oversized, some are O/S ( i.e. size 3 ). For example if I see a pair of YYPH pants I like on Y! being 38" waist in size 3 I will go for them knowing a size 2 ( if there is one ) will probably be 36" waist anyway so the sizes become academic for this 30/31" wearer. I will be more careful if the pants have features like cargo pockets because the longer size 3 length may affect the silhouette and pocket placement. Of course everything mentioned so far has exceptions, not just from pant to pant but from season to season. By and large I have yet come across a pair of size 2 pants that are too small for me. 

 

Experts like Wire.Artist and Asobu can give you more info regarding all things Yohji.

yes there are big differences in sizes but as far as my experience goes its never wrong to size up but mostly wrong to size down. smile.gif

especially for trousers.

 

i am 6'4" and i wear trousers from size 2 (older stuff) to size 4.

i like the huge oversize fit. so size 4 is normaly the way to go.
