Sweater doesn't look bad to me. Good shade of green too.

Second shot of the sweater in question. I think it looks better here than on the Acne model.

I first thought this was Jesus smoking a cigarette. Then I realized it was Yohji (right?). Either way, you really shouldn't.

Also, I've never felt any Acne knits but I don't think I'd really want to take the risk of finding out what the quality is like. I almost exclusively hear bad things about Acne quality; or rather that they're overpriced. Only thing I would buy from Acne are Max jeans cause the cut is so nice (denim is OK but not worth retail).

Yea it's YY, a drawing based off this picture:



Why do you think it'd be a bad buy? Obviously I don't have too much of an interest in actually wearing Yohji's threads but I appreciate his work and that photo is pretty fucking iconic/cool

I tried on the Acne sweater at Opening Ceremony, it doesn't fit as baggy as that first pic.  The color is very nice and it's thicker than you might expect, in a good way.  Made in China.  Not worth retail in my eyes (300 iirc?) I'd pay 2 tops but buy it in a second at half off, and chances are if my size makes it to sale I will.

That's reassuring to hear (I knew it didn't merit a "yuck!"), but now I have to worry about how long it'll take to hit sales. frown.gif

Probably a fair assessment of ACNE. Still remember the ACNE salesmen in Amsterdam telling me their denim was better than the momotaros I was wearing at that time lol8[1].gif

Jet, illuminate the path to knitted content for me.


Or maybe your comment was just a non sequitur.

i have one knit from acne, and it kinda sucks. the shoulders started getting out of shape after the first wash and nipping is really a huge problem.

the crewnecks/sweater are really bad, and the sleeves stretches 1-2 inches after several wears.

Hmm, this kinda sucks then. Anyone ever get Mauro Grifoni knits? or can anyone comment on the quality?
