I was looking at some Yohji Yamamoto clothes today. They are really well constructed, in my opinion. Some of them are really too "out there" for me, but I can appreciate the tailoring. Does anyone know how the sizing works? I looked at a pair of pants and it said size "3". What is that size in European or American measurements?

Thanks.

I'm especially fond of Yohji. As LA Guy said (who seems to have similar tastes as mine from previous posts), let the tailoring do the work. It's all about drape w/ Yohji. As a huge fan of Hedi Slimane's Dior silhouette, it took me a while to get used to the Japanese tailoring, but as I got used to it, I was esecially fond. I second LA Guys large tailoring recognition. I'm a US 38 suit, usually a medium in shirts, wear a 29-30 waist and am a 1 in Yohji. Enjoy.

Thanks for the info. I currently have just a jacket by Comme des Garcons and I've always been really impressed with the quality of the garment. It's really impeccable.

I only wish the clothes from the Japanese designers weren't so expensive.
