    YYPH pre-00 3b wool/cotton suit

    soft rolling lapels and three beautiful black buttons grace the grey/blue fabric. very light-weight but the suit is still somewhat structured due to the exaggerated shoulders (padded) and relatively slimmer cut, compared of course to the more extreme displays of volume from his workshops. the pants are especially airy in the upper block, tapering down to settle nicely over footwear. hard to capture sufficiently with static pictures. despite being at least 14 years old this ensemble is still stunning. BTW the pope is pulling this off so effortlessly, i think he could eventually settle with incredible ease into such cuts and fabrics ;-) [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    funny how the locals never made use of batik. we're treating it more like drapey stuff.... i think it can work in a blazer in some low contrast, monochromatic pattern. most of the batik here were made into shirts with ugly billowy cuts

    You can find some lightweight Our Legacy blazers for that price (though I'm sure, at start, the retail is much more).

    It could just be the way it is cut. Most skirts on jackets do flare out a bit. also, fleece stretches like cray,,,

    I must go and check out that GBS suit at hostem. The retail is something I could never hope to afford but man it looks perfect.

    would a size 2 fit a standard 38R?

    Seems like I need a 3 though the material seems to have some give.

    Some good posts. Waiting for a few pair of Mihara trousers to come in. I realized I actually do not have much jackets..all these are so cool in thread.

    yeah, 2 = 38 (2 is his sample size, if that helps any). i wear a 2 in most of his tops/jackets and they fit very slim on me, but with that jacket the shoulders and chest are a bit larger. it was cut like that on purpose. here's a runway shot: http://thefashionisto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/sikiim20.jpg. i believe that's what the other side of that jacket looks like. here's the wool version, I think, judging by the sheen/texture of the material: http://i0.wp.com/thefashionisto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/sikiim7.jpg.

    By measurements it looks fairly slim in the shoulders...I always prefer at least 17.5"

    Thanks for the info!

    Siki's great but I'd still feel weird dropping five bills on something made of cotton fleece

    I like the texture and overall durablity in terms of wearing it all the time if that is the case. I feel like I would baby wool jacket like a full piece suit. Maybe I am just inexperienced.

    BTW, Bam! a bunch of size 38 Mihara trousers all returned and showed back up in my Deambox lol. I actually tried on those gray jersey trousers and really like them, but returned the size 38 for a 40. I noticed the waist is more structured and has no give unlike most elastic waists with a drawstring. Hopefully this is the case with the wool trousers too. Ordered all 3 pairs of the wools as well. Aside from the reverse seem you mentioned I am looking forward to them. :slayer:
