    Really like this Parker, very simple, but also very cool too. Imagining you in motion makes it even better. That's a great shirt.

    @cupper I think I remember someone saying that they had a Y's piece that was made from wool gabardine and that they couldn't tell the difference. May not be the same fabric, but if it is close enough it is all good :). Hopefully david or someone else can chime in with an actual experience though.

    Gotta like this Parker, pretty much what I've been wearing from time to time recently. I have this super big AW94 rayon shirt in a washed out black, works perfect as a light summer "jacket", like you are wearing yours. Size M but seriously big, sleeves goes past my fingertips, hehe.

    Very good, effortless fit as always [​IMG] I may have the same SS09 pants that you described. Are there rolls of buttons below belt loops all round, buttoned fly and front and back look almost identical? Also they are hilariously wide-waisted, or I have my wires crossed completely?

    Since you mentioned buttons, the most buttons I know for a shirt so far is the AW05 shirt-knit hybrid, about 56 buttons in total. For pants perhaps the winner goes to SS08 Look 2 cotton cargo pants, 87 buttons in total. I will post a fit in due course [​IMG]

    It would be fun to hear that talk, I wonder if it was recorded and uploaded somewhere... Considering Matsuoka is present I'm there are lots of interesting reflections on... hakamas? Tying it to the previous discussion on MDB, I remember quite liking his part at the end.

    Those are indeed hakama pants. Samurai used to wear them and Aikido and Kendo practitioners wear them too. Don't think they are worn in other martial arts though.

    Random fact: Yohji is also the chairman of the Karatenomichi World Federation.


    The Mystery of the Body

    We pursue truth through the repetition of fundamental techniques (Kihon).
    However, there is something more we can see over and above the most furious repetition; this is the enormous power that lies beyond this pursuit of truth.
    This power encompasses an exchange between the spirit and the body.
    In other words, it is a fusion that- in an instant- surpasses knowledge.
    This moment is something that exists in the real world. If we may call it so, it is the power of youth that keeps on chasing miracles, the most complicated mystery of our youthful bodies.
    The youth of those who practice Karate understands no limitation.

    Just received the wide Yohji pants from LN-CC. They are very nice!

    Cotton has a very dry hand and is thin, but not slubby/soft. Will wrinkle pretty easily from my estimation, but not in a bad way I think. Pockets are deep as is expected and the right pocket has a smaller coin pocket inside. A size 3 fit perfectly. Exactly like on the model on LN-CC's product page actually. Will post some pictures later on today.

    Very pleased with them!

    that's great fit parker, as iwvri said, the motion of the shirt must me really nice. you can see the transparency of the fabric from the photo, i can imagine how the air go through it. the only think that i would change if it was me wearing this would be the shoes or the t-shirt. if it was with black t-shirt would be stronger and opposite, black shoes and white t-shirt.

    Pics of the pants as promised along with a quick photo to try them on. Don't mind the flip flops, lounging around the house waiting for a delivery of furniture :D.

    Code for the pants is HD-P30-011-2. Looks like they are not the same as the pants in look 15 which are P07. Anyway...

    Nice pants, so they are AW pants? Or good for summer as well? The LN-CC fit pics have the Engineer Boots, those will be your next buy lol.

    Lol, I did have my eye on the boots to be honest - but only if they hit sales. The brown ones probably as I already have quite a few black shoes and boots.

    The pants work very well for summer (they breathe very well and are of course cropped so I find them very comfy here). Would have to be worn with leggings or something underneath to work for a winter I think.

    What I actually wore today -


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Yang Li MA-1 bomber jacket (54% viscose, 30% virgin fleece wool, 12% wool mohair 4% elastan), SS05 YYPH T-shirt (HY-T11-073) 100% cotton, AW04 YYPH pants (HJ-P37-014) 100% cotton, Ann Demeulemeester creepers.

    Think I have worn both YY pieces here before so not much else to add. Pants are awesome as always (thanks again wire) and the zipper is such a cool little detail that people notice out of the corner of their eyes.

    Was originally thinking about replicating the full on AW04 look with boots, but the weather got much hotter all of a sudden and put me out of the mood for anything past my ankle beyond socks :lol:.
