    I love the hakamas, ivwri. They look great on you. Do they have a way to adjust the waist without having to wear a belt? The belt looks a little "hard" amidst all the "soft".

    On phone, but will do proper reply later once I get home.

    worakl you sound like you could pull off either a 3 or a 4 to me so it comes down to how baggy and long you want them. I'd go with a 4 (this is all generalizing as I haven't checked the links you put up yet). For reference I am like 1 or two inches taller than you.

    Parker they do have buttons on the side that can be used to adjust the width. If you look carefully in the pic of me spinning round I had no belt on. Decided at the last minute to put it on particularly to add that edge to it. Was already going to get lots of double takes so decided to give people something to hold on to. Lol.

    Iwvri, them pants look amazing. You have some good pairs of leather sandals. I think all your yohji stuff would look great with your prorsum ones or the KVAs you have. The hakamas specially, looking very japanese would benefit a lot from some sandals. You´d look like Jin from samurai champloo!!! [​IMG]

    One question about the outfit: where´s the tee from? That red contrasting with the black makes me think you took off your cardigan and slayed a fucker in half with your katana...

    I actually ended up wearing it out with my KVA sandals as I went out with my wife and she was a little more casual than I was.

    The tee is a Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme one I picked up off asobu. Very great shade of red (also masks oni blood very well :slayer:)

    The stuff was alright, I wsa more interested in the pants, but I already have way too many yohji pants and the ones available were reiterations of stuff I already have.

    did anyone get anything?

    EDIT:

    That's annoying, it seems like they put a bunch of Y's pants on later... by then i had gone back to bed.

    would have snapped those up in an instant.

    Haha! Well, you can always just pick them up and wear them to surprise her, hoping to convert her to them like that. Expound upon the whole strong yet supple masculinity they evoke and how it reflects on her having such a man beside her :nodding:

    The chances of her not being impressed are probably pretty high since it seems she has made up her mind, but you can always try!

    I'd actually give one of those belted Y's blazers on Gilt a shot if they had anything bigger than a 2.

    The red label Y's is great, you don't see stuff from that line around very often but it was discontinued a long time ago I think. Like 10 years? I'm actually not sure, but he did have some of the red line on the ss00 runway. I think the general concept around the line is that the clothes are based on - or inspired from - Yohji's own wardrobe, in fabrics that are all really good from what I've seen. A lot of what I've seen is cut pretty short, though these don't seem to be. Good stuff.

    It's a little-known fact that shah has been Grand Vizier and Shamanabler of Synthesistan since 2010, going back to the procurement of a certain pair of rose-colored booties.

    how do you guys avoid looking homeless wearing yohji pants?

    the tops are okay to where they don't stand out too much, but i have a pair of issey miyake cotton pants that are cut something like yohjis sillouette and i always come across as poor/homeless.

    i wear a short sleeve linen shirt in white with the black loose fitting pants (double pleated since miyake pleats damn near everything)

    i was with a freind of mine who was wearing dockers from target and he looked better, most people agreed

    Shoes. Shoes add so much to outfits. Wear a pair of nice boots/shoes and you'll charm everyone. Confidence and attitude. If you seem comfortable in your own skin, people will like what they see, if not, well, yeah...

    Yohji has a very unique approach to clothing, and you can't just put it on like you would with any other cloths and expect to look great. Drop-crotch pants are a lifestyle!
