That's a very nice look.
Exactly what I've been wanting to wear for the last weeks, down to the brands and all.
Take a look at Ghostface's latest WAYWT fits. He has some great stuff in the same aesthetic.

I just got these ancient Yohji pants via Y! and unfortunately, the cleaners I use decided to wash them in the machine instead of following the drycleaning instructions. Anyway, it resulted in some weird chalk-like streaking all over the pants (and they are such a lovely shade of blue too ). Instead of crying over it, I decided to see whether they could still work as they are. They also look/feel best worn high like I am doing so here, but I want to get all your opinions on whether they work like this or not.
Not sure what season they are (although at one point I did think they might be "fake" Yohji since they do not have the usual fabric code, but the logo looks like the old style logo so maybe it could be pretty old? Anyway I will leave that discussion to rest for now, lol)
Blazer - YYPH SS10 linen jacket
Shirt - YYPH AW11 double collar + extra placket cotton shirt
Pants - YYPH (???) deep - blue rayon pants
Shoes - Marsell shoes
Ivrwi, that's a really cool example of wearing Yohji out of his protective black/dark mode. Still got the silhouette, but the color palette is so light and breezy. To me the high waisted pants are a nod to 40s/50s style which is in-line with a longer jacket. Nice shoe choice too. More importantly... your companion is so cute!

Just a very quick comment on the " fake " Yohji theory. Apart from a tampered garment of Arche's ( a numerical tag sewn next to a YY tag ), I no longer believe in the misspelling of " instruction " and " etiquette " on the grey YYPH label as fakes anymore ( too many recognisable Runway pieces with those labels on ). If your pants have alphabetical sizing, no instructions on the grey tag and no white H?-???-??? fabric code then they must be early 90s or even 80s pants with the softer YYPH writing.
For once, you have been comprehensively upstaged by a little being with no YY on whatsoever.
Pants look really great. Confused as to why the little girl isn't wearing anything from the babyYY line that I saw posted on here a few weeks back though.
My girlfriend's in Italy and I'm using her flat (closer to the library) in her absence as I try and panic-finish my dissertation for 1pm on tuesday. When I get back home after the hand-in there'll be two really exciting YY purchases waiting for me in the post. Nice start to post-university life, perhaps..

@StevenE the wife and I are working on her Yohji debut. Probably take another year or two, but we will get there. For now, my sister is handling her wardrobe (among all the gifts we got/keep getting) so quite a few baby Chloe and Stella McCartney incoming
Rex Woo just listed these on his Facebook:-
SS13 Look 24 Block Dyed Blazer + ( possibly ) Look 24 Pants in rayon blend fabric & size 3, so the whole set-up :)
The price of the blazer is very attractive, nearly 50% off HK retail, the same probably applies to the pants. Both make European/US retail look rather insulting and silly. Those of you colourful Yohji fans ( mr shah in particular ) should act...quickly.
i really regret sometimes making a lot of info widely available, there was nothing 8 years ago. Nowadays, with from japan and this artificial hype I can see loads of people just buying because is suddenly cool or straight closet cos players, funny that asobu and me we have the smallest pockets around and we can't even afford to buy shit from auctions anymore just some badly represented items. I feel like 90% of the pieces are not even seeing the light in the streets...which is extremely sad. All this consumerism is making me sort of sick, before we were just hunting for information to learn more about his work, now is just buying and selling. And I'm part of that of course.
My latest, most controversial acquisition, also one of the most enthralling. And to be my last fit for a while.

YYPH AW09 Look 13 " Don't Let It Out " Blazer - ( HZ-J10-127 ) - 95/5 wool/nylon blend, dry hand, boiled wool like texture. Size 2, suitably roomy with the best shoulder and sleeve fit. Apart from the bottom half of the back, everywhere is lined with thick off-white cotton, with the inside seams bordered by cotton too. 4B non-working sleeves, 3 inside pockets, 2 bottom flapped pockets, left chest flapped pocket with a concealed button closure, single vent. Diminutive, deconstructed notch lapels are lined with same cotton and feel more at ease standing up than folded. The fabric and construction give out an endearing unfinished, vintage vibe:- blazer closed by a single big stud button yet it looks as if it's cut to be closed conventionally; frayed edges everywhere with long dangling loose threads, taking the distressed look to another level. It looks as if the blazer is still on a torso mannequin to be finished. I'm mildly obsessed by the way the white cotton showing/hiding itself in motion, giving a great contrast.
Then there's the left arm badge. One of 4 iterations on the Runway ( a leaking tap, bottle and toothpaste are the 3 others, all with different cuts ) , this one has a peeing boy ( Manneken Pis-like but with a Yohji hat ) with Don't Let It Out in red ( Yohji's humour ). The badge is loosely threaded to the sleeve so it's bobbing about when you move, great. Badge or no badge, it's a superbly ( de )constructed blazer with a great fit. A love-it-or-loathe-it piece. I love it.
YYPH SS11 Look 7 Double Collar LS Shirt - ( HO-B01-800 ) - 100% cotton in white. Size 2 regular fit. 7B closure, asymmetrical double collar ( right one buttoned down ) The double black collar has an additional " lip " of frayed border for a stand up 3rd collar look.
YYPH SS08 Look 13 Buttoned Hem Pants - ( HM-P54-100 ) - 100% wool gabardine. Size 3, huge and high waisted. Wide legs to tapered hems with an adjustable tab and 2 buttons. Quite superb pants, great in motion.
DM 1460 Mono Boots, CDG H+ belt.
I see you
YYPH AW09 Look 12 (HZ-J59-127-3A) - Size 3. Same fabric composition. Breast pocket, 2 flap pockets, card slot pocket, 3 interior pockets. Three button snap closure. Tap version.
Same shirt (I really want to buy some more contrast collar shirts...I always used to associate them with bankers - blue shirt with white cuffs and collar, but I actually really like the black and white contrast).
Out and about with my brother.
YYPH SS12 Long Sleeve T-Shirt - (HD-T46-079) - 88/12 Cotton/Polyester. Size 3. Really nice bobbled/pilled texture.
YYPH SS13 Cropped Trousers (HX-P16-201) - 56/44 Cupro/Cotton. Size 3. Light and airy. Black drawstring waist with chunky white rope drawstrings at hem. Construction is really quite cool.
