. . . and yet another YYPH footwear post! I've just picked up these fabulous YYPH shoes. I was thinking of getting those SS2012 boots, but I actually have quite a few pairs of boots already, but no shoes that really go with my Yohji stuff. These really caught my eye. They have a great shape and a bit of a Chaplinesque look to them which I love. The code is HJ so they are either AW2004 or SS2010. From the look of the soles (in another image) they've barely been worn, so I can't really work out which season they are likely to be from. If anybody recognises them, I'd be interested to know.

These are some pieces I picked up a while ago. I've posted a pic of the jacket before. I'm posting them now because I'm thinking of selling the jacket and the trousers, and I'm interested to hear what people think. The knit is also YYPH, but I'm definitely keeping that. 

 

My main concern with the trousers is the size. They navy blue 100% wool, (code HI so apparently AW 97), size XL. If they are from 1997 they are in excellent shape for their age. This may be a heretical thing to say in this thread :) but I'm wondering if they are a bit too big. Maybe if they were more tapered it wouldn't worry me, but the size (and the colour, since almost all my other Yohji's pieces are black) makes it a bit difficult to match them with the other things I have. So my questions is: Do they look too big, even by Yohji standards (if there is such a thing)? Part of the issue is that it's not altogether clear to me where they are meant to be worn. If you wear them high-waisted they look better, if lower down they become really voluminous. 

 

My concerns with the jacket are a bit more complicated. It's one of those cases where you really like something in theory, but in practice it just doesn't quite suit you. I love the idea of the jacket, with the slits in the sleeves, but somehow when I try it on I feel like it just doesn't work on me. It's partly the colour and the pin-stripe, which doesn't really seem to go with any of my  other Yohji pieces. After some experimentation, I seem to be naturally gravitating towards an almost all-black Yohji wardrobe. But I can't really put my finger on what doesn't work with this jacket. Any thoughts on the fit? I've put it up on ebay a couple of times, but no bites. So if anyone here is interested, send me a PM. Same goes for the trousers.

recently i bought a trouser at y! and got something i wouldnt buy but because of the bad y! pics... smile.gif

 

it fits me very good. a bit oversize and i like the cut and fit but the color! satisfied.gif

 

its like a thicker shirt fabric. fully lined. it says ss 10.

 

the only option i see is wearing it with a wide t-shirt like the guy on the runway or dying the trouser blue. but it would be a bit of a pity.

any recommendations how and what to wear with this very trouser?

 

thanx in advance!

post #4117 of 5929
seems to be pretty understated even with the stripes, i imagine it would work with anything from white to navy tee + sneakers, or a collar-less buttonup with sandals, you can even be daring and mix patterns ! its a shame the l/s tee you have doesn't fit !

PS what size is it mwink[1].gif
post #4118 of 5929

understated. hmmm. i dont know. i think not for me  because normaly i just wear black.  smile.gif

 

thanx sha. i see it also with a dark blue tee.

 

yes its a shame that the ss12 tee dont fit me. its just a tad too short. i really like the pattern.

 

btw. the trouser is size 4. or did you mean the shirt?

 

its size 3 smile.gif
 

post #4119 of 5929
wait is that the inside or outside ? now am confused ... the runway is a dark pair, so i thought this was just a different color. but the underside is the same as the runway so is it reversible or just more trickery from yohji with the underside for cuffing etc ? yeah i was asking about the trousers' size. i'd even wear it with the blue shirt you're selling for a very bright color but that may be too much if you prefer all-black biggrin.gif

edit: PMing you ....

sorry, sorry. its not the runway trouser! its just a similar look.

 

i think yohji meant it to cuff it because about 30 cm are cupro and the rest is cotton lining!

 

the shirt is not a bad idea but its too small for me. :-(

Hey, I do not normally post negative comments on people's fits since I doubt they listen if they like what they wear and happy with their own aesthetics. But since you are baffled if you are comfortable with these then I'll try to offer my opinion.

Don't feel bad saying here things feel too big!! I surely can't wear a sz 4 blazer no matter how much you embrace the oversized fit, to me if you don't feel comfortable then there's no point.

The blazer on you looks good in the shoulders and body, love the dropped shoulders esp and it seems roomy as well but the sleeves look very short ( been altered? ). They don't even past your wrists and they look undersized compared with the overall oversizenes of the blazer. Suddenly the blazer looks too small on ya.

The trousers' cuffs are long, perhaps too long. Pants will look more tapered at the hems if you fold them, maybe > once? Another option is perhaps to have them shortened so they become more cropped then the voluminous fit will enhance them in motion when cropped.

haha actually there were some design elements of the coat and the coat underneath. It actually had the horizontal banding similar to the beige/grey blazer the shah has. The proportions too. The guy had the vibe of someone id imagine would like yohji's works.

The cigarette and stature certainly are reminicent of sb though. happy.gif

David, thanks for the response. Although I think I agree with you that they look a bit short, I'm pretty sure those sleeves are meant to be like that. If you have a look at the runway image you'll notice that the model's shirt cuffs are poking out (admittedly they are quite long), and the sleeves seem to end at more or less exactly the wrists, even though the jacket is clearly quite big on him. Standing normally, with my arms down at my sides, the sleeves come to a couple of inches past my wrist. I'm still undecided about it.

 

You're right about the trousers being a bit long. The tricky thing is that the cuffs on the pants are an integral part of the design. They are not actually just folded over. There are even a couple of small buttons on either side to attach the top part of the cuff to the trouser leg, if that makes sense. So altering would involve messing with this feature, and folding them doesn't really work. I think I'll experiment a bit more with wearing them in different ways, and if I can't get them to work for me I'll just sell them.
