Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 47post #691 of 65873/26/12 at 12:12pmThought I say hello to the fellow Yohji fans here! I only just discovered this thread about a week ago. All credits to Ivwri for starting this thread, you have the passion for Yohji-San the legend for which I admire. And with asobu and wire on board, this thread is quick acheiving legendary statuspost #692 of 65873/26/12 at 4:35pm
Wow, this is great. Anybody have details on the whole fit?
I feel because I'm short and slim, it'd be tough for me to pull off the very relaxed/baggy fit of Yohji. However, the picture above strikes the perfect balance of where I want my style to head (not incredibly relaxed, but slim-relaxed.. this is harder to say in words).
People say they want to transition into wearing Yohji when they're 50+. I'm 20 and heavily considering starting that transition now, pending details of that fit above.post #693 of 65873/26/12 at 4:52pmpost #694 of 65873/26/12 at 6:43pm
I think the more recent yohji homme collections are slimmer compared to those of the early 2000's and before. Any of those would probably serve you well, especially in a size 1 or 2. Y's also works well for a less baggy fit, has the added benefit of a cheaper price tag and generally doesn't compromise any of the quality.
While yohji's quality is really second to none in my opinion it sort of begs the question: why would you look to yohji for a slimmer aesthetic in the first place?post #695 of 65873/27/12 at 4:24am
stadsvandringar is right. YYPH had gone for a slimmer silhouette since, say AW08. However the cuts of the blazers within the same season do vary. Based on my limited experience of that season, size 2 for Look 21 DR YY was cut quite generously, whereas Look 4 Deconstructed Lapel blazer and Look 31 Don't Do That were more true to size. Look 15 Leather Insert Blazer however was TINY in sz 2.....post #696 of 65873/28/12 at 8:15ampost #697 of 65873/28/12 at 8:50amwent in to Hotoveli in NYC the other day and checked out their Yohji stock. very nice stuff. the SA asked if I was looking for something in particular, and I said I was just browsing because it was really out of my price range. she said if I wanted to try some things on just to have a look it was totally fine and there was no pressure. i really appreciate service like that. i think it's a great way of turning someone into a customer who might not have been otherwise. i was busy, but i think i'll go back soon and try on a few pieces at some point. i don't know that I'll ever be able to get on board with the extreme side of Yohji's silhouette, but if I can find something a little toned down I would love to try it (eventually).
I really like this quote from Charlotte Ramping: "When I discovered Yohji, something strange happened. It was rather like joining a sect. I didn't see many people dressed like this and I felt unique. Yohji's clothes are not slaves to fashion, you can wear them anywhere, anytime and yet they always feel avant-garde."post #698 of 65873/28/12 at 11:27amThread StarterQuote:
Well, it does depend on the item itself, but generally speaking, any typically large Yohji cut shirt or blazer would work for someone your size in a size 3. You just may not get the really loose/baggy fit that quite a few of his clothes are cut for. Again, it depends on the item. If you want, you could probably ask the seller of the item for measurements or post them on here and get some feedback from all the knowledgeable folk on here on whether or not any of the items would work .Quote:Originally Posted by pickpackpockpuck

One thing I will say is "never say never". Just try on a few things and see how they go together. Yohji is definitely best experienced in person so you are in a great position to see what the brand is all about. Who knows? You might end up joining the "sect" .
I also find that a lot of stores that stock Yohji have really great S.As. Anyway, let us know what they have in stock I know quite a few people on here who are on the lookout for some pieces from SS12.
Also, welcome to the forum and thread davidlee, looking forward to having you around.post #699 of 65873/28/12 at 1:10pmpost #700 of 65873/28/12 at 1:27pmpost #701 of 65873/28/12 at 2:01pmAuburn, just remember to check the sleeves. The shirts tend to be cut pretty wide so they will probably accommodate you, but beware of sleeves and possibly the length. That said, for shirts it's generally easier to move between sizes. Also for the last few seasons (post-ss09 or so) I would recommend you go for 4 as much as possible, between 2000 and 2008 would probably be fine with 3 as well, depending on season. Pre-2000 shirts will be cut very wide but again sleeves might be on the short side when you size down.
Caveat, haven't tried it on but it's cut quite slim iirc so go tts.post #702 of 65873/28/12 at 2:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by pickpackpockpuck

With service like that, just go back and try on all the pieces you like (or just think are cool) in different styling combinations, no matter if you think you can pull it off or not. It's best way to experience it, and it just works much better on the body than on the hanger. You'll notice what I mean once you try stuff on.post #703 of 65873/28/12 at 3:16pmThread StarterAnd now, for some more pics of normal people in Yohji outfits!
