    That's great Xumatrix! I saw a Yohji fit of yours over on peoplewearingyohjiyamamoto tumblr and on SZ with the AW11 shirt-jacket hybrid.

    Good stuff.

    Looking forward to your posts in here and welcome to the forum :).

    for the 200th 201st post we should celebrate this magnificent thread with something equally good

    This coat is godly, one of my holiest grails and the only thing better might be the long DB version. Sizing be damned, if I find this I'll pick it up in any size

    Also, Ivwri, awesome job on posting all of those codes. You don't need to to scan it, it should be up online soon (hopefully). :slayer:

    lol, i copped a blazer and pants.
    the Yohji was over- priced on gilt, I got yohji pants from gilt and it showed the original price was 1200, I found out on the tag that its msrp was only 50000 yen(=550 us), it's retail price jacked up a lot in the US.

    Unfortunately for me, Gilt doesn't take Nigerian visa or mastercards so I stopped keeping up with their sales. That's cool though. What season's stuff? Sounds like it was "The Men". That's the one season I distinctly remember seeing a camo blazer.

    Take pics when you receive them and post? :D

    Also asobu that coat is indeed excellent. I should stop looking at coats and knits though. The temptation to buy gets harder and harder to resist and they'll hardly get any wear :(. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and move back to a temperate climate then I can buy all the coats and knits I want :slayer:

    Japanese stuff is always a bit overpriced in the US anyways. And look at brands such as RRL or Alden in Japan the prices are crazy high

    Wore a linen blazer from SS10 today. It's a simple jacket, but I like it. Wore it almost every day for a week when I went on a business trip last year. The linen has a lot more detail and texture to the colour than is shown in the main pics so took a few close-ups. The lining is cotton in most areas with some cupro. Pants are a linen/cotton/polyester blend from SS11 and move amazingly.

    Wow that linen does look great, especially in the full body shots. Cut and material of the pants look spot on too, nice summer fit!


    90% off? Dammmnn, I would've loved to get my hands on soem 4.1 love if I could. Fucking Gilt, I never bother checking either since it's such a hassle to get a proxy on such short notice but I'd be willing to try if the deals were that good. Lots to choose from? I know they had some ss09 up for sale last fall that didn't get sold as far as I could tell, there were a couple of pieces I would've liked to pick up.

    Thanks!

    And yeah, the issue is the limited sale period. No way I could get a proxy in time either. Ah well, can't have everything :).

    Some stuff is better reserved for the run way than the street, Yohji is a prime example of that.

    Wow, great pics. First thing I've ever coveted with dragons on it. And the dress/skirt with the wings on it is incredible.

    My stuff just got here. I know the stuff is supposed to be loose fit, but this shirt is too big right? I don't have the option of sizing down b/c it's sold out. $175 tee so I want to be sure. Or is this how it's supposed to be worn?

    I got the hoodie in a 2. Too slim? I can exchange for a 4.

    Pretty sure this wool coat is awesome.

    i feel like you really need to commit to the yohji aesthetic for this stuff to work. dark indigo jeans is not an option

    agreed, plus a lot of the volume comes from the bottom half of yohji stuff.
