Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 268post #4006 of 66211/14/13 at 2:50pmpost #4007 of 66211/14/13 at 3:37pmQuote:
So it " fits " then? Or it's now more SS than AW, I.e. no layering option?
As they say, " A picture says a thousand words "

Edited by davidlee388 - 1/14/13 at 3:52pmpost #4008 of 66211/14/13 at 3:53pmi can still layer, it fits. just slim, which is somewhat of a new feeling again. i guess not a bad thing, i'll see if there's some room to let out in the top block i assume (hope) a good tailor won't butcher it.
even layering it, i don't think i can wear it too often for now, being -4 C outside !
will take pics of course, soon as i get a chance topost #4009 of 66211/14/13 at 6:42pmpost #4010 of 66211/14/13 at 9:36pm
One of my other recent purchases just arrived. It's a simple YYPH suit, elegant without any unusual features. I picked it up figuring that I need a few more day-to-day Yohji pieces, to balance out the wild end of my Yohji wardrobe.The trousers are from S/S 2002 as far as I can tell, but I think the jacket must have been bought at a different time, because the labels are different. The jacket is clearly also S/S because it has what seems like the same relatively light-weight gabardine, and is only half-lined. Oddly, the jacket has no fabric code on the back of the care tag, it's made in France rather than Japan, and the size 4 number is white on black on a little tag under the main tag, rather than on the main tag, as with most of my other pieces. I thought that the fabric code might have been worn off by dry-cleaning, but the jacket seems new to me (the pockets were still sown together). I'm interested in trying to narrow down what season this might come from. Does anyone know whether there was a definite period when Yohji's stuff was made in France rather than Japan, and when the size number was attached to the bottom of the grey tag rather than on it?post #4011 of 66211/14/13 at 11:23pmpost #4012 of 66211/14/13 at 11:46pm
Auburn, Yes, I did check the fabric code on the trousers, which is how I worked out that they must be from S/S 2002 (also because of the light-weight). The issue is that the care tag in the jacket doesn't have the fabric code on the back as is normally the case. Also, while the trousers are made in Japan, the jacket is made in France. So, I'm trying to narrow down what season the jacket might be from on the basis of the fact that it's made in France, as I said above. I thought maybe there was a definite period when Yohji was having stuff manufactured in France.post #4013 of 66211/15/13 at 12:16ampost #4014 of 66211/15/13 at 2:17amArche, I'm fairly sure they have never attached the size tag like that so someone else must have done that. Also I don't think anything has been made in France since the 80s? In which case it doesn't make sense that it's brand new, and it shouldn't have number sizing in that case. Sounds very strange to me. Fake? I've never come across fake YYPH items. What's the fit like? Could you take a picture of the tag?post #4015 of 66211/15/13 at 2:54am
Hmm, after reading your post, I had a closer look at the label and I'm very surprised to say that I think I may have a fake on my hands. I've compared the grey Yohji Yamamoto tag with the ones on some of my other jackets, and I've noticed that the French text seems to be misspelt. This jacket has "INSTRCTIONS" and "ETIQETTE" instead of "INSTRUCTIONS" and "ETIQUETTE." The weird thing is that the trousers sold with the jacket look legitimate. They have the normal care tag etc. The reason I thought the jacket was almost new is the fact that the pockets were still sown together. I've only ever handled one nearly new Yohji jacket. Does any one know if the pockets of Yohji's jackets are ever sown together when new? The only other explanation I can think of is that it is some kind of "mistake" piece, where the tag was printed incorrectly, and maybe the seller somehow got their hands on it, hence the new appearance. I'll be very annoyed if it is a fake. Here are the pictures of the tags in the jacket:post #4016 of 66211/15/13 at 4:27ampost #4017 of 66211/15/13 at 6:33am
I have a YYPH Blazer, bought " new " from Yoox that was made in France:-
However it's size S ( which is correct for that era when garments could be made in Europe, early 90s with the more aggressive characters like today's logo ) and the size is part of the silver/grey tag on the lower right corner, just like nowadays' tag with numerical sizing. Never seen a number sewn next to a tag like that, ever, as if someone removed a little numerical size tag from inside the garment and put it there.
FYI that blazer I have is very roomy as you can see, excellent fabric, horn buttons.
