    Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme / Margiela

    Shirt is a generously cut overshirt that is really good fun open as an outer layer or worn as a billowy shirt by itself.

    Jacket ('08) is 95% cotton 5% polyester to give it stiff structure. Shirt is 100% cotton but quite shiny and dense - maybe a cotton gabardine i'm unsure. No fabric/year label on that piece (though it's on S/M/L sizes so I suspect from the 90s). Trousers ('97) are linen/rayon blend.

    Thanks - I seem to be buying a lot of Garbstore lately. The lower pocket avoids drawing unwanted attention to my massive pectorals moobs.


    Syeknom - Really nice fit

    im sure people are going to explode at me, but regis i've never thought your mmm tailored jackets have fit that great... shoulders are a little wonky. i know you like the luxe european vibe, but i think you'd look better in some of the unstructured italian designers. the fabrics are just as interesting and they don't have the weird MMM armhole/shoulder silhouette.

    Haha no one is going to explode at you man. I like the fit which is the same reason I rarely hem the pants and let them just fall sloppy on my boots. I wear suits cause I like them not because I have to so I have fun with it

    I can't go with anything else at this point, I'm in too deep. Love the whole silhouette and feel of Margiela:

    I don't get the wonky shoulders thing so if you could expand on that?

    I think that he is saying that there is nothing inherently unique about the styling or construction of a Margiela suit and that there might be a better cut for you that could be worn in the same way.

    If thats what he is saying then I disagree. Theres a reason I only buy this stuff (short of a fully tailored suit) I have yet to come across something that fits my body like Margiela

    no margiela suiting has a particular silhouette - boxy shoulders, high armholes, a very '80s style european eurotrash/club vibe. the sleeves are long, low button points, lots of single-vents.

    i just think that regis would look better in something like an unstructured canterelli, which would also probably accomplish the same thing aesthetically.

    its not so much evident in the latest picture, but in a lot of the others you can see the shoulder line extend past your natural shoulder, and it seems like the upper arm/upper armhole is tight as well. sometimes dimpling along the shoulder lines. i know you love margiela, but have you tried on a lot of other suiting?

    there's a difference between buying into a brand and buying into an aesthetic. you can accomplish the margiela aesthetic with lots of other brands, which can sometimes do it better (or fit better). fit matters much less for shirts than something tailored. also most of regis' pieces aren't the really design-heavy ones - no oversized hadnknit shawl collar sweater, etc.

    slight topic change:

    unstructured jackets are the coolest, and I'm tempted to swear off shoulder pads altogether.

    (however, in my experience at least, not enough of them are wool. cotton is way overrepresented. oh well)
