    fantastic jacket in the first. I have my eye on a few colorful jackets to add. Hopefully in time for spring.

    yeah the fabric is so lush and thick and incredibly soft i think even softer than the jersey fabrics i played with from ss12. and it's warm enough to pair with a thick coat for winter. i think to have parted with them, valter either lost his marbles or decided to move to the caribbean :laugh:

    I should be asking the yohji thread for opinions, not soliciting the uninitiated :)devil:)

    tried it on past summer and it was incredible but retail way too much, any opinions on the four pieces here would be appreciated

    Great AW04 pants like Asobu said. Your " cape " was rather better than the YYPH AW12 ones as well.

    Go for the 1st Cubism DB Jacket :)

    Conservative? Yohji is about silent but deadly.

    I picked up that last jacket -- the one with the multiple lapels -- on a whim a while back. Because it wasn't as outré as my other Yohji stuff, I thought "oh, I might use this occasionally." As it turns out, I find myself wearing it with all sorts of outfits for just that reason -- its subtlety makes it an extremely versatile complement to other pieces. I urge you to consider it, if the price is right, and assure you it will become an absolute staple in your wardrobe.

    i actually had but couldn't keep it for various reasons ... it's incredibly light and i know just what you mean, the rather absurd lapel details, another "silent but deadly" as mr david just said. am seriously considering it again even though it will cost a bit more this time around ..

    Might be a little short but at the price, was worth the risk. :)

    80 shipped. If it doesn't work out, then I will return it. As far as boxiness, i have something in mind. We will see if execution matches concept :D

    also, 14 day return policy!

    ^would you say it's worth the ~£20 or so from amazon? I'll probably get it since the dimensions look good.

    I've been searching for some small-sized (28 and under) Yohji trousers and I've seen a couple cut like men's trousers in the women section.
    Do they fit the same but sized smaller or cut differently despite the pictures?
    I don't mind wearing a belt (as intended with some trousers), but some trousers tagged S are just too big for me.
