buy the jacket. looks proper tight on the model...
yes, it was a comma* listing. and I know, I know!... I keep looking at that size 4 blazer that's been for sale. Size 3 would be ideal... but I'm tempted to just go for it. (calling enabler-in-chief :-)
pants (Click to show)
I personally think the knit cuffed pants of that season are actually a better and more killer/coherent set up with the Look 8 knit insert blazer. I've seen a pair on Rakuten and as usual too late by the time Hide-San was instructed.
thanks guys, I knew the pants were a bit different fabric from the runway look... there's a subtle stripe in there. But, the whole 07 collection is one of my favorites, so I don't mind having a few different things from it. :-) maybe the plain gab version will show up some day. or as David mentioned, one of the knit cuff pants.

So has anyone else checked out the fragrances yet?
I dropped by Conduit Street yesterday and the femme offerings are all lovely - the standout for being being Yohji Senses. Feasibly unisex too - lemon, sandlewood, floral without being flowery - really great. Of the two mens fragrances I took home Yohji Homme. They're very different from each other - YH has a really intoxicating, alcoholic quality - there's a bar in London that serves a rum-based cocktail with lavender all around the base of the glass - and it reminds me a lot of that. I'd heard really good things about the original fragrance and it lived up to expectations. Hats off to Duriez. The other - YYH - is really subtle - like it manages to be all base note somehow. It seems very, very Japanese - all pear and yuzu.
They both compliment the brand really well too. It's a shame when brands drop the ball on secondary product lines like this. I remember when the RtW/tailor Ozwald Boateng, just down the road from Yohji on Savile Row - made a so called 'bespoke' line of fragrances, where you'd effectively have to mix and layer the perfume yourself whenever you applied it. Ridiculous, and just made you smell like you'd spilt a bottle of something on you.
Particularly happy that they relaunched the fragrances in that I've been looking to find a regular aftershave for a while now, and this is a fair bit cheaper than Serge Lutens. Not to drag the discussion down to the dreaded level of prices - they're much cheaper than I would have expected - £35 for 30ml, £45 for 50ml and US£65 for 100ml. Not outrageous, and the quality really speaks for itself.
Gave me a chance to browse the store too. S/S13 is just so strong, and so consistent - I really think there's an argument to be made its his best men's collection ever - up with S/S11 for me, and perhaps his most consistent and wearable - a real contrast to the season to follow and A/W12 which as a collection both seem to rely quite heavily on statement pieces, to a rather different effect.
Sounds good! I need to check it out this week, been looking for good cologne too.
Just curious where you see the statement pieces in aw12, apart from capes which cover the normal suits? Usually spring collection are full of statement pieces due to the extra color and moving fabrics which make them easy to be identify. I actually feel that the pre-bankrupt collections are been way stronger than now. Not many timeless pieces coming since then I think, which for me its key in Yohji's work. Maybe I just love mid/late 90's Yohji too much and think thats his best period.
