    Wire was wearing the SS04 String Blazer ( 99.99% sure ). It looked so much better on him :slayer: He is also absolutely the Hat Master!

    Asobu is the really shy one.

    I got this YYPH SS05 Cotton/Silk knit it's very loose weave and very oversized, in dark blue with almost purplish floral pattern
    looks great with a tee underneath

    so the hakamas arrived after 5-6 weeks waiting. look 31 - tencel 45 / cupro 55. it's funny because cupro it's "european cousin of tencel", so he kind of mixes two very similar fabrics into one. if it was other designer, the choice would be just cupro or just tencel.

    The Y's was Saturday, bank holiday long weekend here so went out this morning until it threw it down :(

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    YYPH SS06 Look 6 long Coat ( HR-C08-001 ) - from the baseball series. Black, 100% cotton, thin dry hand fabric. Size 1, oversized fit but great sleeves and length ( difficult to find a good length coat on someone with a challenged height ). Half body lined in fabric, 2B Yohji button closure with a long cutaway front. Hybrid peak lapels with ribbed collar ( 65/30/5 cotton/ramie/polyurethane ) for the baseball bomber influence when the additional 2 lapel buttons are fastened. Buttonless sleeves, left chest velcroed patch/badge ( another baseball hint? ). 2 side velcro-flapped pockets with secret cut-outs to reach pant pockets. Left inside chest pocket can be reached from the left chest pocket. Long back pleat ( not vent ) adds volume. Tricks galore but above all a great lightweight summer coat and proper " Yohji " fit.

    YYPH SS06 Metal Button Pants ( HR-P14-005 ) - posted before, size 2, 100% cotton, huge waist and baggy. Try to achieve coherence with the coat fabric.

    an other delivery. s/s 99 (couples collection) gabardine suit. 114 wool code, very light weight. it's brand new with tags, which i find quite incredible. the pants are very narrow but the hem part it's left with 3cm seam allowance, so i can take them out and crop too. will post better fit photo at some point.

    Very nice Kiko, so you couldn't resist the temptation after all from Blitzonla on Y!. At that price it's incredibly good value. The only reason that the suit had been there for so long is the pants' waist ( like you said being a size S ) but obviously it didn't bother you cos you can tailor [​IMG]

    I think there might be an Immortal Technique reference too but can't find it. erykah badu and Mos Def certainly appreciate Yohji as well

    YYPH SS09 Set-up

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    YYPH SS09 Look 15 Leather Insert Suit ( aka Born To Kill ) - great suit.

    Blazer ( HV-J06-114 ) 100% wool, supple soft hand, thinner than 100 gab fabric. Size 3 ( size 2 is too snug, some SS09 are pretty fitted ). Dark black, 3B closure with notch lapels and buttoned non-working sleeves. Long silhouette with sharp shoulders. left chest pocket and 3 flapped pockets, 2 at bottom, 1 at right mid section. Big inserts of black leather cover shoulder area and between pockets and back panel, finishing on a leather back vent. Fully lined in cupro for obvious reason ( to cover the leather joints ). Yohji's peculiar text " BORN TO KILL " below the collar

    Pants ( HV-P07-114 ) - posted before, size 3, huge waist and super baggy, front pleated. Belt loops, 2 back pocket flaps, and darts on knee side buttoned pockets in leather.

    SS Tee, CDG H+ belt and Y-3 Hejarklack Hi-tops.

    I can't believe there are still "new with tags" items out there from 04. really cool, kiko. great addition to your collection.

    erykah badu: top 5 all time shows I've seen. she's amazing live. I don't think she was wearing any yohji that night though.

    parker, it's from 1999 not 2004. anyway i'm pretty sure all these rap references are towards y-3 line not yyph. asap it's wearing y3 not pour homme, also the "celebrity" front row for y-3 show it's probably one of the "best".
