    This is a re-post of a fit. Ivwri and Asobu, I promise to show this ex-Asobu's piece in better light.



    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    YYPH AW98 Stitch Blazer ( HY-J30-999 ) Size S, 100% wool, dry hand but supple fabric, quite unique. It's a SB/DB blazer, off-white buttons, inside left strap to fasten blazer in a semi-open fashion. Or it can be fastened the classic DB way with a single button ( 3rd from a roll of 5 on right panel ) Or it can be done up SB style with a single button ( shown fastened to strap ). Striking white stitching on lapels, under collar and top half of back panel. Button on left lapel decorational. Classic oversized, drop-shouldered silhouette. Buttonless sleeves with cuff stitch details. Superb in motion, when buttoned DB the bottom 2 buttons reveal and hide themselves in motion. Final touch of genius:- underarm vents. Construction is stupendous. A top ten piece easily.

    YYPH SS09 Look 15 Leather Insert Pants ( HV-P07-114 ) posted before, size 3, supersized, low crotched fit. 100% wool, softer and lighter than 100 gab. Belt loops, back pocket flaps and darts on leg buttoned pockets in leather. Very comfortable pants.

    YYPH SS10 Stitch SS Tee ( HJ-T52-081 ) Size 3, 100% medium weight cotton. Black with contrast white reverse stitches on front right panel, shoulder seams and sleeves' seams.

    YYPH SS09 Patent Leather Sneakers ( HV-E04-754 ) Size 2, black patent leather, 7 eyelet closure, beautiful laces. Rubber soles with white accents on the edge. The good old days of YYPH - made in Japan lol

    Yup, cupper is right. That coat I wore is an AW04 coat in wool gabardine. Picked that up off of wire actually :).

    Damn David Tha looks so nice. I just missed picking up that jacket from asobu actually then I later found out you were the one who got it, lol. Good to know it is in a good home though. Great stuff.

    Really like that coat of asobu's so nice. Fit is great too. Was hoping to do a ghetto version of that exact fit by picking up the cotton double layer jacket from SS12, but I ended up missing out. Still need to pick up some Docs :nodding:

    Yeah, that is the double layer coat I'm wearing. The very same one actually as I picked it up from Rex! Had been looking for it for a couple of years so I was very happy to finally have got my hands on it. From AW00.


    Pretty much, they're MIE oxblood Solovair 11 holes. These. Love them, this pair and a pair of 10 holes black docs are on my regular rotation all year round except for the summer months.

    60k yen starting bid is A LOT for a pair of pants on Y!, that's nearly Japanese retail. Dunno if pants can be someone's grail but this has been on Y! for months... For that money someone should buy your SS11 Priest Shirt instead.

    Just catching up on a few days of posts, and I see that David has posted some more great images. The fit of that last suit in particular is fantastic. I've noticed that Yohji has used that kind of internal strappy-buttony thing (not sure what to call it), on a number of jackets and I really like how it works.

    I've recently given in to Yohji-philia and bought a few new pieces, which should be arriving within a week or so. The items are fairly simple, since the more elaborate items, or stuff from recent collections, is still out of my price range, but I'm still looking forward to trying them out. The first two items are YYPH jackets. I'm not certain which collection the first one is from, but I think it must be AW 98, from the code. The second one had very bad seller's pictures so I've posted one of the runway shots from AW 96. Having mentioned the slashing of jackets in an earlier post, I'm really looking forward to wearing this one. The third item is some Y's linen pants for summer. I will post some fit pics when they arrive, but in the meantime:

    I am very intrigued by the 2nd blazer you have bought. Please post a fit pic :)

    Your Y's pants have long front pleats ( and perhaps back pleats too ). Are they there per se or you think some dry-cleaners press them on by mistake?

    Man, that floral jacket looks amazing. Unfortunately, I think it is Y's which is now solely a women's line I think. Not that this should stop a guy from wearing it, it just means I will probably not be able to get my size :(.

    Pants look like these ones but in a different fabric. Also, Y's :). What will it take for someone to go to one of the flagships and just sit there trying on everything for a few hours so that they can come back and offer us their impressions? :p
