I was at the museum today.
I've put up a linen Y's shirt on ebay. If anyone from here would like it, feel free to pm me.
I just purchased my first yohji items, consider me a convert. I understand the idea of it functioning as armor now.
hopefully I'll be able to pick up some more stuff off of rakuten in the near future.

YYPH SS09 P.D.H. Suit - the absolute best suit he's tailored. Ivwri should agree.
Blazer - ( HV-J43-400 ) - 57/43 cotton/silk, in charcoal with random horizontal grey threads running throughout, very difficult to capture on pictures.

PSA: if you happen to be in the Boston area this winter, Salem's Peabody Essex Museum is having a Japanese fashion exhibit mid Nov to end of January:
I'm Jev, nice to meet you.
I've just discovered this thread, such a wonderful place to share Yohji's stories.
Well, i'm hesitating to buy this aw11 jacket/shirt in size 2. However, I believe it would fit like size 3 or around 48-50 and i afraid it would be a bit big and outsized
So, if anyone has any experience with this piece, i would like to know what do you guys think about this.
PS, I've already got the pant in the look from Kiko, it is SOOOOO nice!
