    That's a really nice knit but I'm sort of on a saving mission. Thanks for thinking of me though!

    That's women knit. Also I would suggest keeping auction links to private. I'm sure there are a lot of people checking this thread, which means you increasing the popularity of the item = increasing the chances for more bidders and higher price :))

    You are right on both, if the measurements are to be believed, seriously small for a size 3. But I personally don't subscribe to dibs in auctions. We may all be using similar proxies for Jap auctions which means somewhere along the line, rival bidders will probably know each other's max bids and stay off anyway.

    If it's eBay however it'll be different since you are guessing who's bidding what.

    That Y's tag is for the women's line, yeah.

    Auburn, yep all lines for both men and women (femme, ph, y's, +noir, etc etc) changed to numerical sizing at the same time.

    I often find myself liking womens knitwear. I don't let that get in my way. :)

    I was considering posting those too, but I had a feeling I might be blowing your cover again :eek:. They're really nice. Probably the only hakamas I would consider wearing.

    saw those, too. there are a few nice yyph things on le'Bay right now.
    including the shoes from that runway look.
    I like the idea of one of you guys winning them, but kinda agree with dantebykiko about posting actual auction links in case anyone is trying to place a stealthy bid.

    I don't know what you're talking about? Are we talking about Y! or eBay? PM me a link please.

    The sneaky ones are usually devoid of Runway picture and also the image of the garment is poor.

    Those AW09 are on Y! right? They are ( sample? ) silk overpants ( please define Hakama Pants ) layered over fleecy knit pants, well leggings, ask Wire.Artist.

    i have 3 pairs of those legwarmers, very long ... ribbed knit (got them for peanuts, retail was 270 euros)

    I was going to bid for those silk SHORTS, they are not hakamas, I have the snake print ones already. Seriously, they are more glorified undergarments/loungewear than hakamas. I think the price was still fair, but I decided against it last minute,

    It's funny the a monster we have created, some months ago those would have gone for 1/3rd of the price...or less! I'm still happy that yohji-san get the deserved exposure and fanbase. That was the only reason why I started posting fits in the first place...even though I hate doing it haha

    YYPH jacket; uniqlo scarf, gloves, cardigan, and tshirt; silent pants; docs

    per some advice I sagged those silent pants and rolled them and I think they look better now (I'm happy enough with them to wear them until I get some Yohji wool trousers, anyway :devil:)

    docs question: how long is the breaking in period on average? these fit fine in the toes and generally size wise, but theres some stiffness around where the laces meet the toebox that is pressing down on my foot.

    (ps- sorry for the cigarettes in my fit pics, but its chilly and if i'm already outside i don't necessarily wanna head out again right after :embar:)
