    recent aquisitions
    pants are yyph (from a seller on here, they seem slim but i was wearing thick long johns underneath as my current go to pants are linen)
    blazer is Ys from esox

    Got a few more things will bring them out when the time is right. This is more of a recent purchase shot than an FP

    Jacket looks good Bene, if a touch slim in the shoulders. You should sell it to me :marchal:

    Anyways, cross post from waywt thread. Zipper lapel jacket (no code, size S, older more rounded Yohji logo) and lightweight laine wool trousers (ss12 I think).

    haha me and my behemoth shoulders. I had them measured by a tailor, whopping 50.5cm at a height of 5' 10''

    I like the fit tho, especially open and moving, has a severe yet loose fit. Kind of agressive. I want to test it out with my v-ave trousers and see how that works out!

    I really like the jacket and pants TWorksheets, but I think a different shirt (or maybe just untucking the shirt?) and perhaps all black shoes would be a bit better. The jacket is really fantastic though.

    Thanks asobu. Means a lot coming from you!

    I was actually a bit worried that it would be too aggressive for my first yohji jacket (2-3" inches bigger everywhere than I'm used to), but when I put it on it feels so right...

    Proper FP

    I like the shoes but I think I will take them to a cobbler to have them dyed black. Although the blue feels cheeky, what do you guys think. Very old but very comfortable pair of ballys. Back when they were pretty good.

    I have some white oversized shirts coming in from a while back, hopefully they will work well with this suit. :)

    Did not like the pant roll on these, material did not play well with it. wants to fold more than roll. :)

    Looks cool, don't like the high sides though. For that price you could definitely get a real yyph shirt, or two.

    The sides would def be an issue.

    Something I have noticed, I definitely find myself attracted to other brands for certain items. The blazers/ knits/pants i want are all pretty much Y with some exceptions (some cool EA stuff at the right price and the Y-3 collection recently). When it comes to shirts, I like Y, but I also like a lot of other designers equally. Especially for floral or prints (recently really liked duchamp's tonal floral patterned shirts).

    That being said, still trying to figure out what my philosophy and approach to Y and clothing is. :)

    putting aside that this its women shirt i think the side cuts are awesome, but for me its a bit over-designed for mens wardrobe. i bought few y's stuff in the begging without knowing that they are for women. wore them 2-3 times max, now my gf have pants/shorts and iwvri got the rest of it for his wife.

    In what sense do you feel it is over designed? Just curious :)

    the trousers are insane. soft, slightly crinkled, double faced Wool and Cotton jersey constructed in a pleated manner, falling centrally and creating the leg of the piece itself with a slightly curved leg, an exaggeratively large upper thigh and a hem where the double layered effect is present. drawppedcrawtch of course. Two in-seam front pockets. The waistband closure is via a lengthy leather belt at the side, syncing the belt to the wearers perfect size. Hems remain unfinished.

    I sold them to a guy on SZ who was desperately looking to complete his collection (he has the current season hat, scarf & shirt in the double faced wool fabric so naturally the pants were needed to finish it) :foo:

    I've just come across this outfit, and it's become my next grail. My partner absolutely loves it too (I think it's her background in clothing history). If anyone sees either the trousers or the jacket in a size 4 and isn't interested in it themselves, I'd love to know. I remember seeing the trousers a while ago, but from memory they were too small for me. I'd also be interested in any more info about both garments (fabric etc.).

    The jacket looks to be in the same fabric as a jacket I own in a 84% ramie 16% rayon fabric. I think another poster here owns those pants, actually.

    Hey Arche, I posted a fit here on 11/11/12 ( you can check it yourself ), Look 45 Faux Vest Frock + Look 43 Suspender Pants ( same as the pic ). Absolutely tremendous pieces. I feel you can't wear the jacket w/o the ronin pants but not the other way round. The jacket fabric ( prob the same as Look 43 ) is unique too, 50/50 cupro/bamboo. Size 2 fits TTS, not oversized as per usual YYPH. The pants are in heavy cotton but very nice to the touch. Hope it helps :)
