and i missed them too? Annoying.
oh and the new stuff is in at eastern market but i'm actually resisting going at the moment because I can't afford anything and it gets me down, ha.
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?

Tell us more about that floral jacket
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 .
tell us more about the pants too
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?
love the fabric in the first pic. the extra long elastic hems are a snowman-magnet
Night out dressed-down/dressed-up outfit.
Y's Yohji Yamamoto SS05 String Blouson ( MY-Y02-001 ) 100% cotton, dark black, dry hand medium weight fabric. Unlined, size 3, Big shirt collar, double riri zip closure, riri zipped side pockets and zippers for the sleeves also. Adjustable waist with long string through 6 eyelets on each side at the back.
YYPH SS11 Drop Crotch Cargo Pants ( HO-P55-057 ) 100% cotton, thin, dry hand brushed fabric. Size 3, likely to be Japan Exclusive because waist is very much a regular size 2. Button closure with belt loops. Side pockets, 2 buttoned flap back pockets, large left cargo pocket with buttoned flap. Super drop crotch ( to the knees ) makes the VW Man ones look tame. Wide hems. Dramatic and go well imo with the tighter upper half silhouette. Yohji still the best in this kind of pants.

thanks to dantebykiko for the tip on the suit. I think it's late 90s. code MF-J04-009. size 3 and pretty big on me. but not bad for that "looser fit". the fabric looked like tweed in the listing, but it's actually a thick cotton drill (or is it twill) made up of gray and white thread. the lapels and pockets are trimmed with royal blue cotton. there's a breast pocket that's placed really low and cargo pockets on the pants. not sure really what to wear with it, so I just went with white.
That is a beautiful suit Parker. Love those blue accents. That combined with the grey really make it. Love the way it fits too. Perfectly oversized in my opinion.
Your hair completes the picture
Killer fit as well david. That blouson is really nice with the lace details at the back. You really have a sweet Yohji wardrobe!
@snowmanxl Yeah I took a closer look at those pants yesterday and I must admit I am definitely intrigued by them. The waist measurements on their site look really small though, even in a 4. I wonder whether it is a mistake, or maybe that's why there's a size 6 listed on there as well?
