Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 352

zap's zips :-p

YYPH AW04 zippered 3B jacket, wool gab size 2
[Shirt] Y's for Men, polyester size 3
AW04 zippered cropped pants, cotton size 3

Over the past months I got to acquire several zippered pieces, though not a set as was shown on the runway. I decided to go with the contrasting lighter-colored trousers rather than seek out the wool gab iteration to match because I'll never likely wear this as a suit in a formal setting.
Mr Lee's detailed descriptions (Click to show)
The blazer is 100% wool gab, notch lapels, classic Yohji flat-centred raised rimmed buttons, 3B closure, fully lined, buttoned non-working sleeves (for a particular reason), left chest pocket, 2 bottom flapped pockets. 2 side vents. Signature 100 soft hand gab, sz 2 generous, dropped shouldered, long Yohji fit. Unassuming looking at the front. The genius lies at the back where a 32" curved metal double YKK zip is constructed between the right side vent and the sleeve end. This allows the zip to be fully closed, the double zippers to meet near armhole to open both side and sleeve, or anywhere in between, changing the silhouette playfully. Stupendous construction.

The pants are sz 3 ( OS fits all? ) in a very light khaki more like off-white, high waisted, the waist is adjustable by 2 buttons each side folding the fabric secured with a zip closure. Non-pleated front, 2 back pockets, the hems are turned-up per se. The playfulness again comes from the back where there are two 8" zippers from the hems, allowing the legs to be lengthened at will.

@zapatiste Awesome! The blazer works really nicely as separates as well as a suit. I think your pants are the khaki thick cotton iteration of these, huge waist ( 36" ), just belt loops without side buttons?

YYPH SS13 Hooded Balloon Parka - ( HX-J34-100 ) - in black, 100% wool gabardine. Size 1 dropped shoulder, oldschool supersized fit ( 60 cm chest ) with a long silhouette. Upper back + sleeves lined in cupro. 2 inside pockets, buttonless sleeves. 4 yohji button closure, peak lapels with integrated hood ( closed optionally by a 5th lapel button ). Front + back ruched shoulder panel seams create folds + 2 bottom buttoned flap ruched pockets. Bottom hem can be gathered by drawstrings; this, with the ruched chest/back and huge body, creates a voluminous/billowing silhouette when buttoned. Pictures fail to capture the way this thing moves worn open.
