Yup, I do indeed have that same pair of pants. Picked them up from wireartist and they are SS2000 as cupper said.

Great pickup indeed.

The one I am wearing in that picture is from A/W 2011. Great pants as well.

Has any store started listing SS14 yet?

Come to think of it, I've yet to see anything online. Most places seem to be ending their sales this weekend so I expect their new season listings are ready to go. 

 

Conduit St, unsurprisingly, has had lots of SS14 for weeks. 

 

 

In other news, I just won the Simon Le Bon 80s YYPH blue wool suit that's been knocking around ebay for weeks. When first listed it was £500, but they posted it again with a £150 starting price, I put in an opening bid for just that and to my surprise was the only bidder. I was expecting to see it go for at least a little more, around the £250-300 mark, so perhaps the Duran Duran association ended up lowering the price!

 

Not that I'm complaining, and hey, The Chauffeur is one of the all-time great 80s b-sides. That, and I'd have been happy paying that for the jacket alone, so the pants are a bonus. 

 

Few small holes in the sleeve, but nothing that even I couldn't fix, not that it even seems visible in the first place. 

 

I've actually never tried to wear size 3 (the suit is marked M) yohji mainline pants before, on account of how some of the sz2 pants I own are massive enough already. From the pictures it doesn't look slim, but not overly oversized. The waist is adjustable, and of course I own a belt. 34" inseam seems manageable. For non-Yohji I usually get a 32" leg, anticipating rolling things up a little, so these will probably just require an extra roll or two. Could get them taken up also, and if it doesn't work out they're promised to a friend already.

 

This'll be the first time I've handled a Yohji suit from the 80s, so colour me excited on that front.

I love the chest pockets. 

 

One thing I'm slightly concerned about is the shoulder pads, because I won't see til I try it on where they'll fall on my body - if the jacket's on the bigger side I can imagine it looking off. It's not a course of action I'm likely to take, but does anyone have experience taking the padding out (done professionally or otherwise)?

@Steven, a 80s Yohji blazer will have massive shoulders with the shoulder pads actually hanging " off " the shoulders almost completely. If you watch the V&A Yohji video The Poet of black ( or something like that title-wise ) it showed a AW84 YYPH catwalk, that's the kind of silhouette he created back then. The shoulders should complement the huge chest as well to give you that grand dad look. I won't change the shoulders if it's my jacket smile.gif

I'm watching the video now, I can see what you mean. I embrace the padding!

 

I'll have a better idea, of course, once I have it in my hands. Should be soon. Sometimes it takes a while to get used to a new silhouette.

word of advice. never buy anything from 80s. =) worst decade for fashion and those shoulder pads will be impossible to wear, unless you are BIG and TALL.

post #5484 of 5929

Worst comes to worst, I'll jut gorge myself til I'm twice the size and able to fill it out more. 

post #5485 of 5929

sounds like good plan. 

post #5486 of 5929
@Steven If you like it, wear it. If you don't like it then don't wear it. There's no right or wrong. Every era has its place in history. My advice:- never say never and the world will be so boring if we all think the same.

I work sundays and mondays at IF in soho and we've had SS14 for about two weeks now smile.gif

some great stuff for sure. highlights include double layer, skirted shorts that fasten with little a buckle. i'd be surprised if stores like ln-cc dont pick those up too. thanks to rick owens it's a look that's kind of in atm. also a really incredible ramie blend double breasted jacket with the lining peeking out from the sleeves. matching trousers with elastic waist and silk tuxedo stripe inserts. kind of difficult to describe in words. see it to believe it wink.gif

I had a Comme des Garcons Homme Plus Blazer from 1991 that had a 50cm shoulder width with alot of padding.

It was just unwearable, impossible to make look good no matter how much I played with proportions.

I decided to take out the shoulder padding, I just took a seam ripper to the inner lining of the jacket and just cut my way through until i found the pads, then cut them out. I didn't bother sewing up the lining or the inner parts either. I thought this would create a drop shoulder effect, but I guess the jacket is built with the pads in mind, so all it did was make it droop a bit but it still held its huge frame / shape.
