Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 328

post #4906 of 5587

The extent to which I can comment on the anji timu / rex woo debate is limited, by the basic fact I do not know who either is.  They sell thru ebay? If anyone would like to share me a link to their respective profiles for future reference, would be much appreciated. Anyway...

 

More broadly regarding Yohji sellers, I bought a fair few YY things from here and stylezeitgeist, via the classifieds, and generally speaking the experience has been really fantastic - despite perhaps on the surface seemingly like a less safe and secure platform than, say, ebay, I've never been stiffed, the items are sent out promptly, always, and I've never had someone make the condition out to be better than in reality, (contrast: ebay)

 

I've been impressed at how carefully packaged my purchases often prove - a far contrast again to ebay, where people have at times charged about £10 for postage, and screwed everything up tight and bunged it in a jiffy bag... Typically the prices people offer too prove incredibly reasonable, and in a fair few cases could likely fetch higher on auction. All of which leads me to believe that people who wear - and sometimes sell - Yohji Yamamoto Homme and Y's are, on the whole, really, really nice

^ StevenE, rex aka comma aka comma.comma aka *comma*comma* aka comma*comma lol he has a couple ebay accounts, can find him on facebook as well. items move quick, though he can be flexible on price especially if you buy in multiples. i've no experience with anji_timu though i've seen that username on y!jp ...

anyway, not sure there's anything i can or want to say about this that hasn't already or shouldn't be. some sell, some sell for greater profit, and well all buy somehow or another.

Howdy lads, 

 

A while ago, someone asked if there were any women on this thread. Hello! I'm Arche's girlfriend, a dress historian and fashion curator, and have been watching with increased fascination from the sidelines as he got into Yohji. I even borrowed a couple of his pieces the other day in Annie Hall style (comfy trousers). I really like seeing what Yohji does with historic references and how fabulously timeless they are. So I thought I'd drop in and say hi, and I've enjoyed the thread at a distance very much.

Haven't been on SF in a while, glad I came back. So many fantastic pictures, but this is my fav fit. I'm glad you decided to wear hats david, they look fantastic on you!

I hope everyone contributing here is well smile.gif

Yoox just seem to have massively cut the asking price for a lot of their Yohji stock - yoox seem to hold out on prices for ages (they've been static for a few months), then make a big cut to prices, followed by a steady trickle down until they're shifted.

First set of photos from wireartist's visit to Lagos! Nothing exciting (YET!!), consider this a teaser.

Also, wire's suit is epic. Spring 2000 goodness.

That's great - wearing Yohji certainly does away with the need for red carnations in the buttonhole at the airport.

Yup David that is the new suit biggrin.gif. Works really well I think.

Arachne you are very right. Spotted Alfonso the minute he stepped out of the airport, hehe.

And now for the further adventures of Alfonso in Lagos! This time he is confounded by a Yohji hat wearing skull...

Alas, poor Shiva, he did know him...

This ended up being not slim at all and is actually a little bigger than my other size 3 jackets. I'm going to look for a 2, so if anyone wants it PM me.

so many stunning outfits ! love the david/syed and look, and syed's bro too, was aiming for more something like that myself.

but Ivwri is delivering the goods from lagos, like your baffs ! though i have to admit, and no offense to wire.a, but your last in-photo partner was by far the cuter one redface.gif

i know the more appropriate response is shakespearean, but right when i saw wire holding the skull with the hat, i thought if kippling's If



david those links are a constant reminder of Rex's swiftness in selling. I contacted him for the pair you showed as well as the black one he listed right after, all gone before I could even ask how much shipped to me :-/

unfortunately camera was dead when i was heading out though there was enough light to capture one ok shot upon my return. so i improvised with phone. but alas, i've at least one piece from this season which is absurdly comfortable--the sacai balloon trousers, are they balloon? well cuffs at hems rather than drawstrings--paired with the ss12 jersey cotton lapel-less jacket (really an oversized cardigan, i'd say). uniqlo tee, vans, ute ploeir ss12 linen bag.
