    I was debating grabbing some of that seller's other stuff, but I'm nervous about duties.

    David, when you have a moment after you are done with the CNY festivities, would be interested in hearing more about your new pieces since I will likely never handle these in person.

    From previous posts, I thought you were a size 3 so did you size down to a 2 because the pieces were fitting big? With the wrap pants, how much extra material forms the flap? It's difficult to tell from any pics how far the 'wrap' goes. And with the train on the blazer - does the train fasten underneath the back of the jacket when you don't want to unveil the train?

    I know they have a lot of stock to photograph but would it really hurt yoox so much to not somehow make every single item they touch look like utter shit? (Some YY, particularly the Femme line, is so manhandled as to be genuinely somewhat upsetting.)

    EDIT: @david, nice jacket.

    I'm normally a sz 2 for both YYPH pants and blazers/coat but pants sometimes are O/S ( sz 3 ) so they will have to do ( belt and roll or tailor length ). Some blazers fit me in sz 3, depends on the cut

    The train blazer ( Look 21 ) fits slightly oversized due to its cut + absence of lining + shoulder pads. The inner back panel has 9 double buttons about 12" from the bottom so the outer fabric ( 7 button holes ) can be folded inside the panel, on top of it or you can play asymmetry ( partly buttoned ).

    The wrap pants have max waist of 34" in sz 2 or I'll say they are cut the normal oversizeness for his pants. The " wrap " fabric is about 1.75 times the normal amount of leg fabric at the hems, to about a few inches overlap at the waist, so lots of movement options.

    You can see the train blazer as well in blue iteration ( Look? ) on Barneys website. The dotted 2B blazer listed there have been tried as well, I need a sz 3 to be completely comfortable chest wise. One iteration of the wool gab zip out pocket blazers is tight in sz 2 ( J49-100, can't remember which Runway Look ) and yet the other version, also 3B, J48-100 ( Look?? ) is ok in sz 2 even at first glance it's similar to J49..... Look 32 blue rayon print shirt jacket absolutely great and enormous in sz 2 ( batwing sleeves ), 5B closure.

    So the cut in blazers can still be random this season though not as small as SS12.

    Hey Parker, this AW07 has been on eBay for few months so I don't think you'll stand any challenge bidding for it. In addition Rex Woo sold this piece in sz 1 last year and according to him it fitted reeeeally small so sz 4 may fit like a sz 3.

    Yeah, based on the fit on the model on the eBay link, it is possible it may fit a bit smaller than normal. So maybe one could size up for the runway fit? Dunno though. Really nice jacket that!



    Tell me about it. Been browsing yoox looking for stuff for the missus and I really have to use my imagination to gauge what might be okay (that and copious amounts of runway reference material for those pieces I can ID and appeared on the runway, lol).

    Y-3 FW 2013-2014 is up on Style.com. Only glanced at it briefly so far (today is my wedding anniversary so having dinner with the missus soon. Somehow we both ended up in full Yohji as well, lol) but looks pretty cool.

    Looked very good on you shah :) The colour looked less brown in your picture than in the shop lighting which is great.

    Btw I'm sure label_outlet2012 on eBay selling YY ( and other stuff ) is Hervia Bazaar disguised. Just so ppl know.
