Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 350

post #5236 of 5729

The "Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme" is still visible on the insole, but I can't see any season code. My partner, who worked as a shoemaker once, thinks the boots could probably be fixed by a decent shoe-repairer. But I'm disappointed with the quality (I thought the decrease in quality was more characteristic of recent season's shoes), so I think I'll just ask for a refund. Very disappointing. Actually, on the subject of DM's, I haven't owned any for about 20 years, but I've also heard that their quality has decline drastically. Is this true?

you can always get the made in england line , or go with solovair which is basically the old model docs from what i gather :-)

is the footwear issue true even still ? these aw13 creeper soles seemed perfect otherwise

Or these new AW13 DM x YY

Everything is good bar the price :(

doesn't make any sense buying YY x DM. just get made in england as shah pointed out. i got aw11 monkey boots as gift from alfonso and they are lovely with fantastic shape but they look really fragile.

Happy Birthday Mr Yohji Yamamoto.

Possibly the most talented and stylish 70 year-old. Definitely the coolest. #Respect

The rayon/rayon SS06/SS13 combo deserves a silhouette post my friend.

Agreed.

That Y's suit looks fantastic.

Sorry to be a bother, but does anyone else have any pictures of the menswear from AW91? This is all I have, and this leather jacket's captivated me for a while, and I'm given to understand the collection contained a lot of similar jackets. I'd love to be able to track this or any other similar ones from the same collection down, but pictures would be fantastic as well.

Hey guys!

I'm in need of a second opinion.

Just picked up a great pair of YYPH navy wool trousers, classic style with double pleats.

Waist - 16" across
Rise - 14"
Inseam - 36"
Hem - 6.5"

They've got a wonderful, severe taper; however, I'm only 5'11" and the inseam is 36"; so I'm considering having them hemmed which, in turn, will have the side-effect of losing some of the taper, going from an ankle of 6.5" to about 8". I am wondering whether to accept the wider ankle, or alternatively to have them hemmed and RE-tapered back to 6.5"

I imagine the re-tapering will be fine, but I wouldn't want to lose any of Yohji's magic by tampering. What do you think?

Regards!

Shorten them without re-tapering, or shorten them a bit to allow rolling, or just roll them to see if that's acceptable.

Were these the military stripe ones from ebay? 

post #5248 of 5729
Hi!

Nope, not the military stripe, just a heavy navy wool.

I've tried just rolling them, and I'm going to give it a few more tries before cutting, but I'm afraid the the 36" inseam is simply too long. Normally I don't hem, but in this case I think I may have to...
post #5249 of 5729
David, is re-tapering not advised? What about re-tapering to a value between the 2 (6.5"-8")?

Howell31, how many times do you have to roll?
post #5250 of 5729
@cupper I've never re-tapered pants, and won't be doing it any time soon. I will probably shorten them a bit then roll twice. The hems naturally taper slightly when you roll them,

Imperfection is always in the Yohji vocabulary.
