Assuming they're not too small, and assuming that it gets warm enough smile.gif

speaking of getting warm enough ... if it eventually does, the electric teal jacket from spring 13 season i hesitated on because of uncertainty in sizing, regretfully just found it and tried a 4 which fit perfectly but was 4X the price of the one i passed on :-/

my friend tried this one, also in size 4 and it fit him perfectly he's my size. definitely not the volumes of auld, but incredible pieces nonetheless.

^surprisingly slim fitting, nice piece though.

All the SS14 blazers I tried on sofar ( 6 in total ) didn't fit well at all in sz 2 ( tight chest and torso ) and sz 3 just a tad too roomy for the silhouette intended + monkey long sleeves. It makes for tricky Y! hunting and buy untried online.

Hmm, not sure what to think about the new sizing. Guess I just have to make it to a store and try them all on. Won't lie, I enjoyed the convenience of being able to size most pieces blind, but I guess there were always things that varied in size from collection to collection. Oh well. Thanks for the heads up though shah and david!

Finally, I have picked up the boiler suit from AW13!!

It is exactly everything I was hoping for. The wool gabardine is great and works perfectly for Lagos weather since it is unlined and it just "feels" right, hehe.

It has inner pockets, two-way zipper in the middle, chest pocket has a button closure and the side and rear pockets have zipper closures.

The whole thing is just great smile.gif. Probably going to be living in this for the foreseeable future biggrin.gif.


HQ-D04-100 - 100% wool gabardine.

@Ivwri that AW13 Boiler Suit was a standout piece of the collection and a challenging garment to pull off. Of course you've done it with aplomb. Awesome.

 

@the shah Very summery and effortless.

 

YYPH SS10 Hat - polyurethane

YYPH SS09 Look 31 " DON'T DO THAT " Blazer - linen/cotton, polyester embrodiery

YYPH SS09 " PEACE OF SHIT " SS Tee - cotton

YYPH SS07 Look 21 Overall - wool gabardine

Y-3 AW09 Hajacklack Hi-Tops - leather 

 

Allblackeverything.

I came across a really interesting YY tie on, of all places, Etsy this morning. I think it's a really beautiful piece, looks almost like some sort of abstract, deconstructed tartan.

 

 

 

As the label shows, it was made for the Central Japan Railway Company. I'm assuming from this that he designed a full uniform the company?

 

I'd never heard of this until today but would be interested if anyone knows the details. Yohji's involvement in corporate collaborations, like Miyake perhaps, is a complete blind spot for me - I hadn't really considered it before.

I quite like the tie design. I've seen the shirts he produced for the railway crop up a few times on ebay.

That's amazingly lovely. Did you buy it?
post #5607 of 5801

Yeah I did. It was only £5 including postage, so more than worth a punt. 

 

I check Etsy from time to time, because some interesting Yohji pieces do surface and they seem to get less attention than on the more obvious sites to check. Tends to skew quite heavily towards the 80s though, at least the times i've checked, which can limit choice for the shoulderpad-phobes among us.

I'll happily give you £6 smile.gif Good find.

Still reading through the thread whenever I have time, around page 170 now and thought I'd post a few things of my own.

 

 

Y's For Men Rayon Shirt, Y's Red Label Pants, DIY Jacket / Hikeshibanten

 

 

This one is from last year, YYPH SS 2010 Mandarin Collar Shirt + SS 2012 Cotton Hakamas.

 

Unfortunately I don't own either of these anymore, the shirt material was a bit too stiff for my liking (I like having things "fall, float, and flow"), it had almost a paper - like texture.

I tried to make the Hakamas work but I decided that they just do not go very well with my body structure and looks.

 

I am hoping that there will be a plain black iteration of these pants I can pick up to replace the Hakamas:

 

 

I've done some buying / selling of Yohji over the past few months, still figuring out how things fit / work in relation to my body, how I want to look, etc. etc. I have stuck with a few key pieces, my entire wardrobe as of now is :

 

Y's For Men Red Label Suit

Y's For Men Shirt

2 T - Shirts

2 Coats

2 Pairs of Shoes

 

It is incredibly liberating to really have a uniform that you love and feel good in and can throw on and go out without thinking about it.

 

I am somehow surviving with this small amount, but it's time that some of them went for a trip to the dry cleaner. If anyone has any tips on dry cleaning, would be appreciated as I have never dry cleaned anything before and am a little worried it might ruin the shape of the clothing.

 

Also I found Kiko!!! Looking awesome 5:29
