I think Arche may be referring to the double waistcoat from AW12? -

ss04?

A long waistcoat he asked for, one that finishes below the waist to hide an untucked shirt... when a shirt untucked can easily go past your butt....

Good find :) It can be a waistcoat/vest/sleeve-less coat. 

 

This is certainly a vest, and it's long, from AW02 ( ex-Wire.Artist's ) 

 Somehow I don't think this is Arche-specific, nevertheless a cool layering piece.

Wow, thanks for all those responses. I particularly like the double waistcoat from AW2012 and the one posted by kiko. I realise my description was a bit confusing. The bit about it hiding an untucked shirt is not the essential thing. It's more that I love lots of layers, and the formality and old-fashioned vibe of a waistcoat, but find that the usual relatively short version doesn't always make for aesthetically pleasing proportions, especially with the looser lines of a typical pair of Yohji trousers. I also like when the layering works with a traditional combination of items, like the three-piece suit, but then breaks up the standard structure by having e.g. the shirt untucked, or the waistcoat hanging down below the jacket. I find that, at least for me, items that elongate the upper body seem to work well to balance out the voluminous shape of some of the trousers I have. A good example is the YYPH linen shirt I have which hangs down almost to the knees, and looks great with the YYPH blazer on top.

I check Y! Japan everyday for any stuff suitable. I opened the bookmarked browser just then and noticed Y! changed the format.....rather annoyingly.

You can't see individual items with seller IDs at a glance anymore. Also there is nowhere on the browser to specify your own price range, neither can you specify new unused items to look at also.

Has anyone experienced this too?

Really? I need to look into it frown.gif

Congrats! I know which pair you mean, I was tracking those too ( but not participating ). He kept saying cha***** ain't his Y! account.

14503 yen is an exceptional price smile.gif

Yeah, right.. I'm expecting to see aw06 blazer with zipper lapels.. Wasn't so sure if I want those pants but I was sure I didn't want him to have them.. Now they are growing in me and can't wait to see how they will fit. Lost an other paid few days ago simply because I didn't bid the first time and after they got relisted and decided to bid..

looking great, Ivwri. What is the tee? Collar shape is perfect for wearing under the casual suit.

Thanks Parker. The tshirt is by Rxmance. Picked it up from ln-cc if I remember correctly, when they were still stocking the brand wish I got more now frown.gif. I sized up and I think that was the right choice for the neck and generally looseness.

Another tshirt I have been eying is the 20s tshirt by Merz B Schwanen. Looks like it would go perfectly with a casual jacket etc.


post #4590 of 5729

Oh, thanks man. The 20s shirt has also got a nice shape. I wonder if they have some other colors. 

 

A blustery spring day here. Probably a bit too cold for this, but I'm ready for warming weather.
