Yes it has the older Yohji signature on the label and that item code. It's great to know that old style tag is pre-91, that helps dating those older pieces.
It's also tagged S but I believe the change from S,M... to 2,3... is more recent right?
I find Yohji's use of season and fabric codes cool and can be quite useful as it has been said.
tried the cubist Napoleon cotton jacket in a 2 today and it fit me perfectly. Now I have somewhere to try on Yohji this could be dangerous. Although they don't get many 2s in, I know some 3s will work.
Also, I think I saw wire artist preparing an art piece on the street today, which is pretty random as i'm in Australia. He was in full Yohji and looked great.
trouser yyph hv-p23-301 62% linen 38% cotton . fabric has some knots. hb-t43-081 ss12 t shirt. very very delicate fabrik. patchwork 100% cotton. y3 shoes
unfortunately i dont have that much of the older pieces because i tend to sell them but i have 2 or 3 i think nice things left i couldnt sell because of the amazing fabric.
i will post them later with the codes for the new list.
Wire is indeed in Australia doing some work! Wow such a small world. Was it Eastern Market you went to by any chance?
Parker that fit is sweet. Side view is
Yes Eastern Western indeed. Wire got some good stuff there!
I managed to find a review of the work he does as part of that collective and it looks awesome! I'll definitely head down to see it in all it's lit up glory.
Yeah I was in Eastern Market, it is a really great shop, the ladies working there were SO nice. It's only my 2nd day in Melbourne so I unfortunately couldn't buy anything (being sensible and all that whilst I try and settle in to the city) but they were really chatty and happy for me to try things on. If any of you come to this end of the world I'd highly recommend it. It was a pain to find though, I almost walked in to a design studio by accident.
In anticipation for tomorrow's show (!), I thought I might as well post the YYPH spring show from 1999 as it hasn't been posted yet afaik.
I guess the theme was "couples", so siblings, lovers, married couples, colleagues etc modeled the clothes. A few particular type of jackets were explored here, some details like zip off sleeves and openings, shoulder/elbow details, some technical fabrics, torn paper detailing, patchwork patterns etc. Ends with every participant coming out in different variations of white shirts
YYPH S/S 1999
Great post and terrific archive as always. So all the females there wore YYPH on the runway? Or YY Femme?
Y's ramie/cotton (53/47) jacket
on a related and rather bizarre note, i noticed it's started to fade to burgundy on one side on the right sleeve and a bit on the back
Really great post asobu. The whole thing is getting me a bit misty eyed to be honest. Really like how intimate it all feels. Those white shirts with the red ribbons attached are beautiful, would love to get my hands on one.
Really excited for tomorrow's collection. Trying to keep my expectations in check, but it's been a lot of work to do so .
In continued happy news, picked up my SS08 suit from the cleaners and now that there is no longer any tobacco smell to bother me, I have tried it on. I feel like a banchou (Japanese high school gangster) haha.

Fabric is great. Not thick at all (even kind of see-through in the right light), but because of the way the shoulders are constructed it sits with a nice permanence when worn. Not flimsy at all. There are patches on the lapels, elbows and cuffs of the jacket made from the same material. The trousers are really nice as well. They have drawstrings at the cuff allowing for tightening of the opening but use of a belt is recommended for the waist as there's no drawstring there. I am not wearing them with a belt in the pics, but I will normally. They also don't have side pockets as I hope was shown in the photos, with the rear and front/side pockets almost meeting at the side seam of the pants. Instead there are large cargo pockets on the front that can be opened with a button. Behind those are where the pockets are. This is a similar design to that on the SS09 suit pants (look 2) and a big part of why I really like these pants. Combined with the volume and fabric, it really gives off this badass nonchalant vibe when I stuff my hands in them. On a side note, I find that with a lot of Yohji's clothing there are in-jokes scattered all over the place. Text where almost no one would see it, hidden pockets, hidden double collars, his name written upside down or reversed etc. A casual observer would never notice any of these things, but because you know they are there it can make you smile sometimes. These pockets are like that for me with these pants. Anyway, I guess you can tell I am extremely happy with the purchase (thanks again for pointing it out to me wire!).
I also got my SS08 zipper cargo pants back and those are very nice as well. Love how the zipper alters the silhouette of the pants (most especially from the side). It shows the genius of Yohji when he does things like this as essentially the zippers perform the same function as the buttons on the ronin pants from this same collection, but the pockets are placed differently and the zips are placed in front in order to achieve the same silhouette from the side that the buttons (which are placed on the side in the ronin pants) achieve in the other pants, slimming the lower part of the leg and having the cargo pouches enhance the area above the knee, making it look like literal ronin pants or calvary pants tucked in to high boots. Great stuff
HJ-B09-109 an really fantastic fabrik. 60% Linen 40% Silk
HT-B39-802 100% ramie would be a see true shirt but the body is lined with black cotton but not the sleeves.
