Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 256
When you guys are talking about Yohji sizing and say a 3 usually fits you and you're 29" at the waist, do you mean that's the size you take in 'normal' sized brands, or the actual natural waist? Trying to work out what I might search for if I were to pick up some Yohji bottoms down the line.
Thanks for the info guys - that seems to match what I've read earlier in the thread but I I'm also built a little differently than average. 5'9" but it looks like this season I'll actually be hitting race weight at 120 +/- a couple pounds, so quite a bit smaller than you and shah; probably sz1 or 2?
I need to get in on that suspender style.
Some more pics. All yohji except the shirt (issey) and the shoes (rokin)
