Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 331

post #4951 of 5818

Thanks Davidlee - I appreciate your advice.  Your fit pics and YY knowledge is amazing.

 

My problem with Coming Soon and Y-3 is that they're nearly as expensive, seemingly, as YYPH.

 

I have to admit, I've got my beady eye these:

 

 

 

I would wear them without the braces, but I find them unspeakably beautifulnod[1].gif

 

I'll twiddle my thumbs until the sales and work on a "if it doesn't happen, its not meant to be" basis.

 

In the meantime, back to Yohji on the cheap - or find a better paid job.

You are welcome. Always willing to share what I know BUT the real Yohji Gurus are Wire.Artist and Asobu who are always elusive here, the mystique and all :) 

 

I thought you can find bargains of Y-3 ( except Y-3 Exclusives ) and Coming Soon on yoox, no? YYPH are a lot dearer I would have thought.

Y's size 3 rayon jacket in dark blue, unlined and constructed in a manner such that only the shoulders, cuffs, pocket flaps, and buttons have any real weight, the rest is incredibly light as well as translucent, it moves as, say, curtains do, suspended along rods simply drawn over the body. nice detailed stitching throughout.

Y's wool trousers, dark grey one size draw-string with massive waist, they are very wide, and even tying as tight as they'll go would still leave them too roomy, so i've left the knot quite loose and they are suspended about my torso. took a while to get used to walking while no longer in sync with pants that simply float about my waist :-)

Y's suspenders, vans sneakers, and cotton Uniqlo floral pattern shirt

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

i quite like the simplicity. i do wonder why you didn't face the window and let the natural light color you, but the flamingo pose more than makes up for it :-)

GUANGZHOU – Although better known for its mass-production fashion industry, Guangzhou is quickly building a name as one of China’s luxury fashion capitals.

Locally-based fashion brand Exception de Mixmind shot to fame back in March for first lady Peng Liyuan’s endorsement on husband Xi Jinping’s first official diplomatic trip as China’s new leader – Peng’s coat, suit and handbag were tailor-made by the homegrown brand. And now, Mao Jihong, the designer behind Exception de Mixmind has come together with cult Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and Hong Kong counterpart Stanley Wong (of Anothermountainman) to create Guangzhou-based fashion brand YMOYNOT.

The brand made its first official appearance in a private catwalk event showcasing its Fall/Winter 2013 collection at W Guangzhou during the hotel’s grand opening on May 16, hosted by the three designers.

Titled “Ride Up”, the collection channeled the bohemian spirit of the wilderness with casual, flowing silhouettes and texture-heavy patchworks of lace, linen and wool characterized by rough-hewn edges.

The brand is named after a play on the words “why not?” and sets out to challenge fashion conventions with its oriental aesthetic and fashion-forward attitude. Yamamoto’s protégé Michiko Suzuki, who used to be the chief designer of his womenswear line, Y’s Red Label, leads the design team.

Hello again,

What is AAR that I see on some older yohji labels? Was it some kind of capsule or collaboration with a department store, or something like that? Likewise with the LQ line "Produced by Work's and Friends"?

How consistent is Yohji sizing?

I gained some weight and am curious if I am still a size 3. I have a Yohji knit in size 3 that fits nice but that was several months ago since. FWIW the shoulders fit well and everything was roomy.

I am looking at some "final sale" trousers on Barney's among other places and am wondering if I should stick to size 3 or move to size 4. My waist is about 34" now and I am 5'9.5
They are simple black trousers, 100% wool ... the other is a garnet/deep purple/oxblood/maroon color.

ss12 cotton jacket in size2, very light. perfect for summer and layering later on.

Y's for men S/S 2006 cotton/linen suit. size4 but its quite slim. Again superb suit for summer.

From what I've gathered Yohji sizing is based mainly on height, so you should still be a 3, but it really depends on the piece in question, I've seen size 3s with a waist from 30" up to about 36". Can you not get measurements?

 

If in doubt, size up.

 

Kiko - so tempted by that suit

post #4961 of 5818

Yohji sizing can be very inconsistent in my experience, particularly if you are looking from season to season, but even within seasons. Some pants are more based on height. These usually have a loose waist that can be adjusted by drawstring, elastic, or some other means. In my experience, recent size 3 pants that don't have an adjustment mechanism usually work best for 32-34" waists.

 

AAR, to my knowledge, is a now defunct collaboration with D'Urban, a businesswear/suit manufacturer in Asia. I've handled some of it and most isn't impressive. I liken it to a lower-cost Costume line. For the money you'd be better off with y's for men in my experience.

thanks for the input

Barney's don't provide measurements but lets see what the other store replies back with.
From the photos they are all button and zip fly closure.

Just thought I'd let people here know that I've re-listed that SS 2009 Cotton/Silk blazer on Ebay, with a lower starting price. It's the same one Ivwri has as a suit, with the red P.D.H. stitched on the sleeve, in a size 3. If you want a link, just let me know.

Damn shame it didn't work out for you Arche. Hopefully someone jumps on it. Very cool jacket! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Killer fits over the last few pages. Particularly like your fit zapatiste/shah, the jacket especially. Good stuff.


A small contribution smile.gif.

thank you mr naija !

that contrast is so stunning. am wondering, is that a cubist jacket ? i have just tried on a sz4 cubist pattern with same cut, farmer-style, that tends to move outward like an upside-down V same as yours. i found the 4 to be much more roomy than the 3, it may be a sign that i'm becoming overly accustomed to such comforting volume.

picked up an ss98 linen jacket, sized M but it's massive. Will have to part with it I think

congrats on the new endeavor as well ;-)
