Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 264

post #3946 of 5780
very nice ! indeed i have wire's size 3, slim in the body but shoulders fit with that touch of wide hehe
it seems impossible for me (and you too, i see!) to capture the speckled wool details of that knit, as if they are transients always popping in and out of existence, never around long enough for camera exposure

i just got some AW11 trousers in size 2,greyish-khaki cotton but very light weight better for cool spring. cargo pockets and exaggerated rise.
it has the buttons for suspenders and of course the waist is massive (didnt measure but surely 36+ inches)
can't post photos as it's dark and poor lighting but i'll likely not keep them, i was hoping for more drape and flow but they're rather stiff especially after rolling up the hems (huge outseam as well)

Oh wow. Yoox has given me a second chance with that silk long jacket, hehe.

Really nice pieces in that fit Bene. I also quite like the sandals, only without the knit (figure you are wearing them indoors only?). Fully channel that awesome Spring '00 vibe.
post #3949 of 5780
Thanks! Always reassuring to get a compliment from one of you vets!

yes, just for indoor use. I like this knit with the pants, the combination of texture and fit is very aesthetic to me. I wonder if these pants will be light enough for spring/summer. We shall see biggrin.gif

that long jacket i quite like ! though it's not silk, according to their description (says cupro which i guess is silky?!). i didn't try that one on in store though confused.gif

bene, i think it's a bit incongruous to wear sandals with a wool knit. i mean if you like it then by all means,,, this is no rule to be followed , just an observation of an apparent contradiction in what you've presented.

Didn't wear those out. Dw. Just wear them around the house smile.gif

Bene that sweater looks awesome with the jacket + pants. I think CdG chucks (à la Shah) or perhaps the navy chuck-esque Yohji sneakers that ivwri wears would look great with that fit.

You could probably reduce the frequency of people telling you your glasses wear you instead of the other way around by facing the camera (head up) in more of your photos. It's when you look down that the frames really take over your face, and you're just doing it for the camera but that's the only way/time SF sees you.

I get it when it's dead on too. Thanks though. When i post in waywt i just black it out now.
post #3955 of 5780

I like the glasses.

Also, interesting jacket. Probably will get slept on because of the tiny tears that could probably be easily repaired. If I wasn't all set with that IM I'd consider this. A nice dry dry clean and repair job, right as rain probably biggrin.gif

Was looking at some tumblers and ended up seeing one of ivwri´s fit, with the yohji suspender pants (I think they were mentioned as "ronin pants"). ANy idea where I could snatch a pair? Should I just browse the web frantically and hope they magically appear somewhere?

In a nutshell, yes, I've seen sofar one pair on ebay and another on Y! in the last 12 months so they are pretty rare. They are fabricated in thick cotton so can be suitable in all seasons really. You may find a bargain or a sleeper ( like I did ) if you can recognise them in auctions without Runway pictures.

Thanks, david. I remember thinking how awesome they looked first time ivwri posted that fit with the burberry sandals as well. Looked so cool.

 

Rakuten is also a good place to find yohji, right?

post #3960 of 5780
Yes of course, even though I seldom use Rakuten smile.gif If you are a SZ member, you can post a Wanted Thread there as well smile.gif
