I think it needed something to undercut that sweetness, but I assume the woods would do that if they came through on my skin. Yohji Senses on the other hand, with the yuzu and pear seemed perfect for this season's Spring/Summer collection. Will have to give the rest a try.

 

Oh, thanks, good to know what Someone said that the perfume was never the same after the contract (?) was taken over by Proctor and Gamble.

does anyone know where i can pick up the new yohji fragrances in ny? i'd love to try out senses and homme... though i've never had the luxury of trying the original frown.gif

Hmm yeah, I guess reformulations were to be expected. I've never had the chance to try the original so I'm not sure to what extent it would be as a result of reformulation, or it just not working on my skin. Will try to give it a few more tries, just to make sure I'm getting the full effect.

Oh and as far as I'm aware they're slated for general release in the US for Autumn/Winter?

What are the differences (mainly concerned with fit and jackets) between Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme and Yohji Yamamoto Y's (for men)?

I see a lot of aesthetic balances between yohji and forme...

anyways.
a dumb sizing question really.
at a short 170cm (5'6) and true 46... am I just fucked for trying to get those cropped sarouel type pants to fit right? (with drawstring hem)

I for the life of me can't find any size 1's...

You and I are almost exactly the same frame so depends how you want the pants to fit you but size 2 is what I will go for. It's not possible to fit like the Runway but you should still achieve the right aesthetics by tightening the hem drawstring. A lot of YYPH pants are OS ( size 3 ) but I know at least the wrap pants ( Look 21 ) can be had in size 2.

Some people on this forum here actually think the SS12 Hakamas fitted too short on the Runway models.....

Hi everyone

 

I'm a long time reader of this thread.  Your knowledge, pictures and discussions are a wealth of information / inspiration.

 

To be honest, I've prevaricated over taking the YYPH plunge.  The reason is cost, but I've looked around, saved up and I'm finally ready to make a purchase.  

 

Trousers, in my experience, are the toughest bit of clothing to get "right" - as in, they can make or break a look or the way you feel about the way you look.  And from what I can gather, trousers seem to be the lynch pin of the YYPH look.  I'm not looking to buy an image of the shelf, but its the YY trouser look I'm after.  I prefer more fitted jackets and more minimalist shirts, but I love the black gaberdine tapered trousers.

 

I've tried to do the YY trouser look "on the cheap" with options like these http://www.hervia.com/mens-c2/clothing-c79/trousers-c22/twill-lightweight-pants-black-p9629  They work very well - I really like them with a Muji Labo long sleeved tee-shirt and some plimsols, but I do want a pair of YYPH gaberdine trousers.

 

So I've seen these on Rakuten:

 

http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/jimu/item/051026-q/

 

My questions are these:

 

1.  Is it wise to take the plunge on something you can't try on?  I've been into the Conduit Street shop a few times and tried on the black gaberdine trousers which I wanted but was not in a position to buy.  Would it be better to wait for the imminent SS sale and get them from there having tried on?

 

2.  Credit card fraud!  As well as finding the trousers, I also found this http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Rakuten  Scary stuff.  I know a lot of you have bought from Rakuten and similar auction sites.  Have any of you had problems?

 

Thanks.

Hey Friends,

great to see such a dedicated thread to the best of them, Yohji san! PErhaps this issue has already been addressed, but I am curious whether anyone can prove/disprove something I heard recently: namely, that the Y's For Men items with RED labels were copies of pieces from Yohji's personal wardrobe. Any insights? (if the topic hasn't already been breached it would be interesting to discuss yohji's personal choices versus his flare on the runway...)

And one more thing while I'm at it I suppose... How can I navigate Yahoo Japan Auctions... and/or is there a better proxy option for sourcing vintage/used yohji?

Let us all continue to HATE fashion wink.gif

Me yesterday in a very basic combo - black YYPH autumn/winter 2012 trousers, YYPH belt with a plain black YYPH long-sleeved tee, with brown oxfords from Ozwald Boateng. 

 

Yes it's a bit dark. You get the outline.

You can try Y-3 and Coming Soon pants as the alternatives to SLVR. 

 

Pick some pants really cheap as an experiment first then you will get an idea how they fit. It's not just the " look " in Yohji clothing we are after, that's static, it's how the garments move & drape that's most important in my view. 

 

If you are in a position to purchase in a flagship store, go do it. You own the pieces first hand remember. Also you probably already know what pants size you wear having tried the pants in Conduit Street so buying in auctions shouldn't be a big risk. Members here and I use SharpService and FromJapan as proxies and most transactions are done through PayPal so absolutely no risks so far.

Yes as far as I know, Y's for men Yohji Yamamoto in the red label. Perhaps that explains why those pieces run so small.
