Made a few adjustments to what i posted before, i think the shirt would have looked better with the very top most button not done?

This is great, I really need to grab some YY wool trousers. Cropped or tapered would I think be good for frequent wearing like this, a bit more unobtrusive than my hakamas laugh.gif

I know it's not strictly Yohji, but ln-cc has some really cool vintage Issey Miyake pieces now. Some of them look like they'd blend into a Yohji warbrobe really well, some beautiful stuff up for sale.

A/W '87 suit:



grandad shirt:



wool pleated and tapered pants:

Yeah, that Issey stuff is great. The sunglasses are fucking awesome. Not sure how I feel about taking vintage pieces and selling them for more than they probably retailed for, though. This kind of stuff would go for a fraction of the cost on ebay.

Ln-cc are mad. You can buy issey suit for £50. Shirt for £15..

My pants are cotton gabardine, I'm literally living in them.

I just curiously browsed the LN-CC Issey Miyake Archive, to my amusement I have the exact same AW84 Batwing Double Layer Raincoat ( passed on to me by my older brother ) in storage in my loft. Dare I say mine looks more matte ( less faded ) in colour. I can probably recall the retail was about £600 at the time. It's a stupendous example of construction and silhouette.

Whether it's justifiable for LN-CC to ask that much for their archive pieces.....well it's a question of supply and demand.

Got some Y's trousers in the post last week, been wearing them every day since. 100% laine wool, half lined in rayon, high waisted, single pleat, size LL (waist is around 34/35 inches). Wearing with SS98 Comme blazer, Y's medium weight mesh scarf, Muji shirt, Uniqlo cardigan, and some deadstock DMs from the '80s that were originally issued to emergency service personnel.

And yeah, liking the look of quite a few of the LN-CC Issey archive, but the prices are kinda high (to be expected I guess). Will keep looking for Issey shirts on auction though.

The Y's S/S 2013 Lookbook is posted here:

Whenever I see one of these, I really wish they'd bring back Y's for Men.

What are some good brands for oversized white buttondown shirts that fit the y look that are under 50 bucks (if that exists)

I ordered what I thought would work to that end (shirt in large) but it turned out to be slimmer than expected! frown.gif
post #3569 of 5914

This is said with complete seriousness but I'd check out a "Big and tall" store. And stick to an oxford fabric.

Quick roadtest of one of 2 tremendous recent arrivals, this one, YYPH AW05 Look 43 " Toggle Coat ", full details in due course.....very happy with it :)
