Some extra info I got from re-porter on the scarfed blazer posted above -
Just FYI, despite being marked a size 1, I am a big 46 / small 48 in tops and that is me modelling the jacket. The measurements make it sound like it fits even bigger, but I think it's best suited to a 48 (without room for much layering) or a true 46 (with room for winter layering).
Also, I went to Degli Effetti in Rome yesterday and tried on this silk blazer -
It was great! If I had enough money, I would totally have paid the extortionate price for it (2000+ euros!). They also had the same cut but done in a heavier cotton fabric. They had lots of basic blazers in black and quite a few pants. They also had these
brown hakama pants and the colour looked way better in person, but there was loose thread sticking out from some of the stitching on the sides which was pretty strange and off-putting. The black ones they had were much better finished. Didn't try either on though. Didn't pick up anything other than a Lumen et Umbra L/S shirtWarning: Shirt (Click to show)
which while not being so long in the body would go well with a lot of the Yohji stuff I have I think.
Went to the women's section with my wife after that and we picked out quite a number of Y's and mainline clothes for her to try on. The mainline stuff looked and felt really great as well and the staff were quite friendly and helpful. As for sizing, looks like the size 3 corresponds to an M or small L so similar to the men's stuff just cut in women's sizes. My wife generally has problems with tops cos of the chest area so she tends to wear medium sized tops despite being on the short side and size 3 worked for her in Y's and the few mainline items they had in 3. The sizing was pretty consistent across pants, shirts, tops and jackets which was pretty cool. There were a pair of suspender pants in a khaki colour that were a size 2 and were pretty large, but other than that, everything else was relatively the same. Looked like the most popular sizes were 1s and 2s.
Ended up buying a pair of Y's drop crotch pants and plan to get the rest once I get back to Lagos.
Now I realise that I may have put myself into trouble as she really liked the stuff she tried on. Less Yohji for me Although I guess getting a wife dressed up in Yohji is a good trade-off...
