Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 342

post #5116 of 5727
Hi everyone, I've been reading and admiring this thread for some time, always an amazing reference for anything Yohji!
Would love to know if Yohji titles his collections and if so whether anyone knows the names of any of them?
Thanks so much all, really appreciate your expertise!

@JEVWV If I remember rightly Ivwri the great thread founder has this very piece, he can give you a very detail insight. I myself tried this whole Look 19 set up when they were available in Hervia at the time. Firstly the pants on Look 19 weren't suit " matching " in colour and fabric, secondly there were believed to be 2 iterations of the shirt/jacket hybrid, a cotton & wool gab version ( L19 being cotton?, L20 is gab or a different style altogether? I can't remember now.... ). Anyway the gab version in sz 2 fitted how a sz 2 should fit on me, with a slightly longer sleeve feel than the Runway. I've no idea if the cotton iteration fits differently. FYI Hervia retailed the shirt/jacket @ circa £850 & pants £550.

@olarosa Afaik Yohji-San himself doesn't/didn't title his own collections exactly, he may have given his inspirations of certain collections in interviews. So the titles were probably nicknamed loosely by fashion editors and Yohji fans. So unofficially for example, I'll say for Pour Homme, SS14 is the Nomad Collection, SS12 the Hakamas Collection, AW10 is 4.1 The Men Collection ( said on the invite ), SS09 the Suit Collection, SS08 the Defeated Arny, SS07 the Suspenders Collection, SS06 the Baseball, SS04 the Skirt Collection, AW00 the Haute Couture, AW99 the Gipsy Collection, SS99 the Couple Collection.

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.

Best,

PS, I've already got the pant in the look from Kiko, it is SOOOOO nice!

Hi Jev and welcome to the thread smile.gif.

I do indeed have that shirt/jacket and as far as I know it came in two sizes for the wool gab version. 1 & 3. The 3 is what I have and I would recommend it for a size 3 and 4 with the 1 being for a size 1 & 2. wireartist tried mine on when he was in Lagos and it fit him really well I must say (he usually wears a 3). The one you posted looks like the cotton version I think. If you typically wear a Yohji 2, then definitely go for it. This piece works really well if it is oversized I think. If I could have gotten a larger size I would have, hehe.

There is one more iteration of it in wool gaba that is pretty long and I don't think that one was shown on the runway.

Hope this info helps.

David that P.D.H suit is great and I think you snagged a great colour way. Definitely one of the best jackets he has done. Still wish I could score a size 4 of that jacket.

Thanks Ivwri my friend for the kind words. The beige version is truly amazing too and def looks more summery, just that I don't do beige very well.

I thought the wool shirt/jacket I tried in Hervia was sz 2? I'm not sure since it's such a long time ago & I had no intention to pay retail then. So Look 20 was the longer version?

Ivwri, David Lee, Thanks so much that was very kind of you and really helpful. I may purchase it but just want to see some more fit pics of it apart from the one shown on runway. The one I'm looking is cotton and I think it is larger than Yohji usual 2.

 

As I am quite skinny, I afraid my shoulder fit will drop to much. 

 

measurements:
shoulder:      43cm | 17"
pit:           52cm |20 1/2"
length:        81cm | 32"
 
 

 

PS

David Lee, I love that long shirt

The shirt already arrived? That was fast, very nice pickup indeed

Same as before but trying to decide on these still
hot summer means light fabrics and lots of volume :-)

it will fit you, don't worry. measurements doesn't work with yohji clothes most of the time as every piece has very different cut and drape. 

post #5125 of 5727
Kiko is right. In fact the shoulder + chest measurements are on par for a sz 2 or AW11 sz 1 shirt + I've seen your stuff in another public domain. You can do it smile.gif

PS. thanks for the comment.

Edit:- @ zapatiste those Hakama Pants are a keeper, and you know it smile.gif

@David I have the DRYY suit in 57/43 cotton/silk fabric and yes the fabric is truely amazing. The fabric ages beautifully over time with use. It's definitely one of my goto suits.

post #5127 of 5727

Purchased it already, just wait for it to come.

So keen to update to you guys.

post #5128 of 5727
Thanks David, good to know about the names!
Does anyone have any info or images from the PH 00,01 or 02 Fall collections?
Can't seem to find them online and not on firstview...
Thanks!

You need to contact Asobu for runway pictures, he's the Yohji bible.

I used to have YYPH AW00 somewhere but can't find it atm.
