    the waist on yohji's trousers most of the time it's really big. you will probably never get pair of trousers that won't require belt. i'm around 30" waist and 5'8" and if i'm buying those pants (which are pretty slim cut) will go for size 3.

    The other colorway of the knit I bought a few months ago is down to $215 on Yoox. There's also a 20 percent off code floating around at the moment, so someone really should grab it. I paid about $100 more and don't regret it at all.

    Back in Nigeria and got a sweet haul of Yohji stuff waiting for me at home. Will post pics later, but wanted to show these SS09 pants (thanks a lot Parker). Really like them. Quite airy without being too baggy and the fabric is pretty nice. They are a size 3 and fit pretty nice. A tad bit cropped, but I think that highlights the cuffs for me. The size 4 I would wager would just be a tad longer. Wearing with SS12 ramie military cap, AW11 jacket, SS12 cotton shirt and SS12 shoes.

    Also, wanted to say that that Yoda comparison is great. Means that my Yoda x Yohji t-shirt idea might yet be a reality :devil: :tounge:

    for those of you that reside or have visited Hong Kong, where would one find a good stockist that carries Yohji for men?? i'll be visiting in a few days and would like to pick up a few pieces while i'm out there.

    did some searches, but couldn't find anything sure bets.

    thanks in advance

    Joyce Boutique ( look on Joyce.com for details ) The Central and Gateway branch are the only shops that carries YYPH & YYF, however the sale in YYPH had gone pretty well and a lot of things sold out.already. Then check out I.T. for Y's ( women ) the best main branch it I.T in Causeway Bay.

    Finally must go to Joyce Warehouse for past seasons' goodies ( I shouldn't be telling you this :) what size are you )

    P.S. Nearly forgot Rex Woo on FB ( comma comma on Ebay ) have quite a few yesteryears' YYPH/YYF/Y's

    Hope this helps.

    MyMindSpray, that's ok, that's what this forum is all about, info sharing. Plus I'm a sz 2, occasionally 3 so there's no conflicts of interests there lol. Sale will be on in Joyce when you go, 50% off for YYPH current season, better than YY Global stores ( 40% off ). Their retail is very similar to Japan's , unlike the obscene mark-up in Europe.

    Joyce Warehouse in Horizon Plaza in Ap Lei Chau ( HK Island ) carries past seasons' Y's and YYPH, at at least 60% off retail :) I went in March & there were some good SS11 and older Y's, all brand new. When you go you should find AW11 as well now.

    Rex Woo's showroom needs an appointment to attend. He has some very good pre-owned stuff there, that SS03 coat discussed earlier on included. But he mainly sells CDG.

    Thanks. Well, I am glad you did since I would have missed out on them otherwise :devil:, but seriously though, they are very nice. The material is very light and breezy and would work very well with what I have seen of your wardrobe I think. Y's jacket looks pretty cool. Beginning to really like Ramie the more pieces I pick up that are either 100% ramie or blends, such a great hand.

    By the way, picked up an Spring '08 suit from Yahoo JP as part of the stuff I just got in and it was smelling of smoke! Guess next time I will believe you 100% of smoky Yahoo goods. Sigh. Sent it to the dry cleaners post haste!

    What do you guys do for raincoats? Looking for some suggestions on something I could pick up. The rainy season has finally started in earnest here and while umbrellas are cool, I also tend to forget them all over the place :embar:. So, yeah, looking for something that would blend well with Yohji stuff most of the techninja stuff looks too futuristic and/or sleek to me.

    Apparently a former Yohji staff member designed a raincoat for Stutterheim, but it is for light rainfall and I need something sturdier. The white Stutterheim one looks very tempting though.

    those stutterheims are really cool looking. i was thinking of picking up the white one too. looks heavy for summer though.
    i dont think anyone in the tech thread had any experience with them, unfortunately

    Yeah it's pretty difficult/impossible to tell from the photo, if you look in the actual book it's a bit easier to pick out some of the details. I didn't have a scanner available so my PoS P&S had to do when I took that pic, hehe.



    Damn, those look great on you. I wasn't convinced by them on the runway but they do look very nice here. You definitely sized them right, with that cuff detail they look better cropped/slight break than "stacked" for sure. Cut looks spot on too. What's the fabric? I'm pretty sure they came in several variations, at least 100% wool and some wool/ramie/etc blend I think.
