Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 282

there probably wont be much spring stuff left but if there is and its good (and lets be honest, most of it is) I will be dramatically upgrading my collection!
edit: The tanks are a little rediculous though. I'd be surprised if they sell well. Not worth 500 dollars for cotton tanks that look like longer AA tanks.
I don't think the 500 dollars for that tank is justified on feel or aesthetic.
There are some cool videos on V&A that show the various print methods Yohji tends to use and they are all done by old craftspeople in Japan by hand (like the silk jackets from SS12 or the hand embroidered jackets from SS11 to quote more recent examples.)
Hand-done work in Japan is pretty expensive from what I understand. Not justifying the pricing, just saying that that is usually how it goes with Yohji's printed/embroidered items.
also most of the tanks are knitted and depending on the knit it can be very expensive. not to say all little details and slits. its not like someone took scissors and cut it open. as yegwa said the prints are even more expensive because yohji doesn't use some mass production factory. + shipping, taxes etc. and last lets not forget that you paying for the design too. some people losing sleep over those basic tanks.
hey guys, i was wondering if any of you have handled this at all? i left it alone before because it looked so fragile, but it recently popped up on LN-CC for 80% off, and at that price i couldn't pass it up.
it looks like it wouldn't last a week to be honest, i want to know if perhaps it may be more durable than it looks? if worst comes to worst i'm sure it'd make a nice scarf though.
You just summed up your discussion by the last sentence. If you see some blazers and pants you like a lot you'll find ways to justify the price.
Generally speaking western customers are being charged a lot more ( not just Tees, everything ) for Yohji. It's geography I'm afraid. You win some, you lose some. People in HK pay considerably more for Paul Smith, Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford etc.
i think it all depends on what somebody want.
if you want a black tee that not many ppl own - even when it looks like a normal tee - then you have to pay 400.- for a "normal" tee.
i own several tees of yyph and miyake and yes, its good quality but not better than the normal tees i wear from an italian company and they cost 70.- euro.
printed tees are a different cup of tea.
do somebody know the fit of this item?
it looks a bit on the smaller side.
i am a bit cautious because many ss 12 items did not fit me even in size 4 and the items are final sale.
thanx in advance.
maybe this will help you to understand how it will fit you:
• Height: 6'2”
• Chest: 39
• Model is wearing a Yohji size 3 /Medium
Certainly. It's probably more so my view of the tank as a piece of clothing. A long white relaxed fit tank is pretty much perfection in my eyes. And that can be less than 50 bucks. Whereas things like knits or blazers or trousers are more versatile in my mind. So a yohji blazer which has so many interesting details and twists is an intellectual design pleasure whereas a tank is just a simple tank. Much like I would just wear a black t shirt from a no name.
I look at any piece of ( Yohji ) clothing in 3 criteria regarding if it justifies the price.
3. 1 & 2 combined
So take a tank as an example I guess there's not a lot of innovative/trick construction that can set it apart from a lesser brand ( in terms of heritage/reputation ) then one has to look at the fabric. However when an online store just describes something as cotton is to sell it really short. Fabrics are such important backbones in Yohji clothing to achieve its particular aesthetics and silhouettes. You really have to handle and try those tanks on then you may start to understand why they cost the way they cost.
