Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 246

post #3676 of 5710

i've never compared final price to retail simply because the retail its way off my wallet and its silly. what difference will make if it was retailed for 150k or 50k and i bought it for 10k, no difference to me. 10k its what i paid and thats it. i don't need benchmark to help me justify something i like or not.

 

there its huge amount of sample sale garments on yahoo/rakuten. all marked with red pencil(instruction label) are from sample sale.

I thought the red pencil mark on labels are from the Family Sale, no? Samples? Reckon we have different definitions for what a sample is smile.gif

So you said you paid 10k for something that needs not be justified by retail prices and yet said that something could have been retailed for 50k or 150k being silly. You have already compared the prices to know the latter is silly, right? I agree you don't need justification of a piece that you like but you justify buying that from Y!/Rakuten because it's cheaper there.

Think we just agree to disagree. Peace.

sample sale and family sale its the same. at both places they sell old collection at 60-70-80-90% off retail price. they rarely sell actual "samples" from the shows. they are usually given to the people who work at the pr offices.

 

buying from those on-line places are much more exciting for me then buying from retail place. i don't need to try the garments, i don't need to check the measurements(only tag size). i like to not know what i'm receiving, because i know i have confidence and presence to make it work and enjoy it. thats why i'm keeping buying from those places. also i know my budget and can work around it pretty well.

This new format of thumbs-up without the option to write comments is a big thumbs-down for me.

Gah! Just got back my cream SS '00 suit from the dry cleaners only to see that the lower front button has snapped in half and I don't think I got this with the usual spares included frown.gif. Weird how buttons and dry cleaning were just brought up in here too, lol.

Now I don't know what to do. There are other buttons on the jacket, but none of them are the same size as the undamaged front button. Do I just swap out both front buttons with smaller ones so they match or work with a mismatch up front?

So annoying. This is the sort of thing that is a bit sad with older Yohji pieces. No spare fabric and no spare buttons.

Ah well, maybe I should just do the mismatching button thing and roll with it.

I am sure there is some sort of service out there that can match the material/color of the buttons

Perhaps it might be fun to replace it with an intentionally standoutish button, like a little wink to the world smile.gif?

Hey all, was thinking about slip on shoes to wear with Yohji stuff and wondering what thoughts you all might have. Birks look comfy but I don't wanna steal dantebykiko's style too much laugh.gif I was thinking some very plain black espadrilles, or maybe some woven shoes? Don't know that I want to get sandals right now...

i was looking into this last week and i cant believe how much Vans cost nowadays! Maybe it's just Australia but holy shit, i couldn't bring myself to do it. I think I may just go the really cheap route like above. I did just order sandals too as my feet don't cope well in heat and the couple of 39 degree days have killed me so far this year and it isn't even the hottest period yet confused.gif

I've done espadrilles. They are nice for when it is warm, especially because I am not a sandals person.

that's just the product code ln-cc uses... not an actual style number for the yohji piece in question.
