    I always wonder where does Yoox get all these old " new " stock from after all these years because they are BNWT.... many of those Y's you mentioned are from the AW05 Pitti Uomo Runway, really really good, constructed just like YYPH. Shame they are mostly not my size, plus they are stupidly dear ( not normally the case ) for what effectively 7 year old stuff. Baffling [​IMG]

    David good to read that about Y's AW05 as I'm waiting for a long shirt from that collection.
    Regarding Yoox, perhaps those items didn't sell the first time around or never had been uploaded because they didn't bother lol.

    david, if you're interested in Yoox's business at all this week's New Yorker has a great article on them.

    The pattern on that last Y's dress is great, makes me wish it was offered as a print :embar:

    In addition to those Parker listed, I'll also point out that Forward has some good YYPH pieces from time to time. There's a great size 2 jacket currently on sale for $500 (original ~$1300) -- for some reason, Forward describes it as "plush cloth," but it's actually Yohji's signature black gabardine. I have this jacket, and it's a great staple piece; I'd particularly recommend it for those on this thread who're looking for a good entry point into YY's designs.

    i got size 3, don't forget the eternal code tulip :bigstar:

    not sure how forward makes money since their sales are so absurd each season and they have free shipping both ways

    Hey K, I think it is like the 2 other SS112 shirts that Hervia sold/still selling. I tried both and very nice, regular fit on the Hervia ones though. Fabric code is 067, thin striped cotton. I purchased the buttoned hooded shirt in sz 2 at their break even price I think.

    I may be guessing but Look 46 is available in the plush cotton ( jersey ) fabric as well as gabardine. I have tried that it on in HK few months back ( HKD 9500 retail ) Judging by the retail of usd 1300 ( cheap for a gab blazer ) it may be the case of using a wrong image?

    David you bought this one?
    I got the same from Japan but it's a sample (fabric code 067) so I' don't know what's the fabric but Hervia states 55% cotton 45% cupro.

    subsidized by yoox's massive margins

    i haven't checked hervia. what's the feeling? formal or more relaxed everyday white shirt. it look really nice in the show tucked in and the folding it's pretty awesome and i can actually afford it at price point of £85.

    Yes cupper, HB-B55-067 size 2, not a runway piece and someone was braindead at Hervia, cos it's 100% sure 100% cotton. I got a cheeky 80% off retail by asking in the shop [​IMG]

    I wouldn't call a very relaxed fit ( apparently Look 1 is massive even in sz 1 ) but not formal I would say with a hood on a collarless shirt. Quite cool and irresistible at the price I paid ( circa £120 ). The one Forward sold ( you got it now? ) is Look 41 I think right but it won't be a million miles away in terms of fabric.

    yes, i bought it already. my classmate has look 1 and look 2 shirts, if it's something closer to that i would be very happy. regarding the size... even size 5 will be okey, i will make it work somehow..

    Wow, once the forward link was posted their stuff immediately sold out. Too bad for me...

    I...I need more coffee. I read your post, clicked on the link, made a purchase, and never once realised I was on Forward and not The Corner.

    Haha doesn't matter just use tulip and have fun ! Revolve (the Forward parent site) probably sells enough to compensate, there's a third one in the group that I forget now...

    Hopefully you guyare right and the jacket is wool gabardine one and not cotton, I don't want more cotton for now!
