However I've seen those pants in the classified and Rex's page so they should have the usual Yohji attributes ( fabrics, construction, silhouette ). It's high time you post something with a face/smile ( Asobu did already ) smile.gif

Those shoes look fine btw.

Finally what does " oh dear " mean my friend? You won them didn't you? If so you will need the matching blazer ( OS sz 3 ) available in Cambon nod[1].gif

thanks! the oh dear was two-fold, i don't want to be tempted to complete the suit firstly and secondly i hope the pants don't fit like this


you're right, david, the y's pants are just what you'd expect. they are suspended about me with a belt. very light weight but retain their shape and have some momentum of their own due to the constrictions of the cuffed hems.

here are some slightly better pics of what i wore boring but comfy (Click to show)
not sure why it looks like a brownish-red hue in the middle of shirt closeup, it's just dark peppered color with bits of navy and brown thrown in.
the bottom is quite volumunious and airy despite being wool of heavier than summer weight. comes to a [relative] taper, billows about the legs elegantly



... the picture kinda scared me lol

are you asking me about the white tote ? yeah it came with guidi leather...it's stained with coffee now lol need to bleach it but it's surprisingly resilient and i can fit a good amount of stuff i need for a day out and about.

i know this is all repetitive and boring, but it's (hopefully) one of the last chances i get to wear outerwear and i don't think i shared a proper fit of the jacket ?

aw12 reinhard plank felted rabbit fur
aw04 speckled wool
random belt and i think a really really old shirt from the gap that's too comfy hehe
aw10 brushed wool
moma
ute ss12 line bag

Good to know. I have 2 that I should use. The all white is real pretty IMO. Nice fit. I can't seem to pull off the gray top and black bottom without looking like 2 halves. The hat and volume certainly help.

shah, I like the way those marsells look in the pictures you shared, but based on the pair I briefly owned I can understand your fear about the shapelessness. Those don't come across nearly as blobby, though.

YYPH AW98 Handstitched Blazer - ( HY-J49-999 ) - not very often I get a WOW piece, and this is.100% 999 wool gabardine, unique dry hand but also soft & indestructible. From the " Vivienne Westwood " collection. In fact I have a suspicion it's the same Look worn by Miss Westwood herself. Size S enormous old school fit ( like sz 4 or above of today's ). Long silhouette. Fully lined in rayon. Unbelievable drape and grace in motion. Single horn button closure, 3B non-working " cuffed " cuffs. Long pleat at the back. It has this amazing white handstitching ( thread ) holding onto upper part of notch lapels, collar and back pleat. So you can make it collar-less and open up the back pleat completely ( I wouldn't! ) Another vindication that old is still the best. Mind-blowing construction.

@StevenE, yes Fist Of Fury also my favorite, Jackie Chan was a stunt double for that Jap Dude in the final fight.

I'm a die hard Bruce Lee fan really & hence drawn to the Dragon. Besides it's rather lovely.

yeah! finally a fellow MATSUDA fan!!!

and in top of that related to Bruce Lee smile.gif big fan too wink.gif

shah, that jacket look proper good on you mate. Glad to see!

great jacket david, now you have a couple of those handstitched '98 pieces! That gabardine is fantastic.
post #4661 of 5695
hi all, by any chance any of you might have this pair of SS12 hakamas in size 2 or 3 in black wool gaberdine or linen-blend that you're willing to let go of? or know of anyone that has a pair in good condition that's willing to sell them to me? been looking ALL over for them with no luck... the YYPH code is HB-P41-xxx. thanks!

I have you to thank for getting this blazer, I wouldn't have recognized the handstitched details ( hence the season and bidded high for it ) had I not bought yours first. Do you think this could be the one worn by Vivienne ( with the collar detached ) with white shirt/red tie and matching black pants on the Runway?

I still have those vintage Matsuda pieces in storage & those spectacles/braces/arm clippers were amazing. So were its Lookbooks :)

For the record, I was joking about being Bruce Lee's relation, I wish! But I am a big big fan :)

post #4663 of 5695
^ haha i believed you shog[1].gif

agreed with others, that '98 piece is so fantastic and even more so considering its age

duh i believed you too ;P

still have some Matsuda lookbooks stashed away in storage somewhere as well as a few pieces that managed to move with me through all the different cities/countries i've been through over the years... came across a eyewear dealer in taiwan a few years ago with a backstock of vintage matsuda glasses and ended up buying almost all of them smile.gif anyway, whatever happened to the brand and kobayashi?

Received the cropped cotton pants (season?) from Yoox and they are pretty great as you'd expect. Soft and breezy. They came with an incredibly long belt made from the same cotton fabric, which I didn't realize. It wraps around my waist 3 times. Sorry I can't get good enough light for an iphone photo, but for once the Yoox model looks accurate: http://www.yoox.com/pt/36371372JO/item?dept=#sts=dreambox80&cod10=36371372JO&sizeId=4 Size 3 still available. If you need a waist measurement from my 2 let me know, but the sizing is how you'd expect.
