    oui. they do a lot of work for fashion and music. I still really like their alphabet and alphamen made out of fashion photos.

    Thanks so much for posting those esox. Beautiful shots, lusting after those catalogues :drool:. Check your PM in a bit.

    LN-CC buy looks good. Happy they picked up the engineer boots, definitely on the to-buy list at some point. Very interesting that they have some Costume d'Homme line. I thought it was discontinued?

    Just received these monkeys and a gift Tee from a friend ( you know who you are [​IMG] ) so keen to try them on:-

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    YYPH AW08 Look 4 Navy DB Handstitched Blazer ( HE-J35-111 ) 64/36 wool/cotton blend, soft hand. Ivwri, Wire and Asobu are familiar with this. Wool/cotton is one of 3 ( I think ) fabric iterations of the handstitched series. Black is wool gab and grey is silk tweed I think. Amazing construction, handstitched lapels, shoulder seams and pocket flaps create a 3D effect, 6B DB closure, 2 back vents, tartan wool insert inside pocket flaps. Navy tinged buttons ( details! ). Snug cut so this is sz 3, great silhouette.

    Don't have the matching pants yet so these have to do YYPH AW10 4.1 The Men Navy button cuffed pants ( HC-P06-023 ) 60/40 cotton/linen blend, brushed woven fabric. 4 button cuff hems allow different hem widths. Sz 2 hilariously big waist, the baggy cut complements the blazer I think.

    YYPH AW05 Look 10 dark brown monkeys ( HN-E07-714 ), one step closer in completing Look 10 ( need the pants lol ), 10 eyelet lace closure, chunky heels, very very well made, so thank you my friend.

    The complementary early 90s YYPH navy ( very soft ) cotton SS Tee and CDG H+ belt.

    Nope, Costume has been chugging along. I guess they are selling enough? It is actually a bit underrated in my opinion. The designs are usually simpler, but the quality and yohji fit are definitely there. It looks like he's been branching out a bit with the line. Notice this pic from ss12, with a similar concept to this coming season's:

    One of the jackets on LN-CC looks to be poking some fun at watch hustlers you see that open up their jackets to reveal dozens of polished goods :p

    Quote: Kiko, the code for the pants on Look 31 is HB-P37-203 ( Cu/Tencel Twill I-Hakama A ). Any fabric code starting 2?? is rayon mix according to Ivwri's Code Archive. They are Type A Hakamas with belt loops but that's all the info I have :(
    Watch the Runway video will give you an idea of the cut. I'm keen to see your SS06 coat :)

    Thanks for that. Very unsure about them as the hakamas are been key element and I've seen so many people buying them, almost like a trend. I've got my vintage silk hakamas which are awesome but the consumer in me wants to buy the black yohji version....

    esox, thank you so so much for posting these. They're all amazing, and I personally especially like this last one. Great stuff.

    Great fits, guys, all of you. Valter rocking those hakamas real well, they do go particularly well with a long jacket/coat like that. I wonder what it would've looked like if you'd untucked the shirt. Good to see the vest too, I've never been much interested in waistcoats myself but I'm really getting into the idea of a gabardine one now.

    Love this last one, Parker, and the all navy from David. Shah, that jacket is beautiful, I think this is one of your best ones yet. For me this jacket + tee combo works super well with the hakamas, gorgeous stuff.

    stads, thanks for the heads up on the ln-cc aw12 drop, definitely some good stuff there. Really like both of the drawstring pants, perhaps especially the wide navy pair. The striped suit looks good too though I'd personally perfer a longer rise. Not sure why they are consistently not specifying the measurements for size 4? Seems like stuff isn't that fitted this season?

    That diamond pattern was used as piping on some cotton ss12 pants, seems like it's used both for lining in that costume d'homme and on the back of the vest.

    thanks fellas :) jacket is the ramie/cotton blend , it's quite nice and versatile too


    yeah, the jersey hakamas. so light-weight and soft. Luis at Louvre said the danger is you just wanna keep touching them, and I find it's true lol

    esox these are great photos am glad you've taken the time !

    Esox epic posts! thanks.

    Excellent looks from all you guys thanks for posting.

    David I think I haven't seen a fit pic from you where you use the same garment :rotflmao: you and Ivwri seem to have a never ending yohji wardrobe. :worship2:
    Really great blazer and pants. It's always great to read your descriptions of the fabric and details.

    Parker It's been a pleasure seeing your fit pics and your excellent integration of coming soon and yohji garments from day one. I'm taking notes, please keep posting. :slayer:

    Shah I find the hakamas + blazer look quite awesome (probably super comfortable as well) and one can play with proportions using a more fitted or voluminous blazer.

    dantebykiko Is it still possible to get those vintage silk hakamas or was it a one time opportunity?


    My first vintage YYPH piece has arrived. :D

    First impressions are great but despite being new it has some dirt from storage. Nothing serious I think but I'm taking it to the cleaner. After that I'll post fit pic.
