    Caveat I would say AW08 but I'm probably wrong. Ask the seller what's the code printed on the tag.

    alfonso is right. aw11 look1 in black cotton. i have size 1 jacket from ss07 and it fits okey not too slim. i doubt yohji makes size1 so he can wear it :D there are very small japanese people who like yohji and size 1 looks on them as size 3 looks on model.

    I was looking at those leg warmers too

    I may just combine some type of tights + cropped pants with my Yohji knit in F/W '13
    Seems like a real cool idea and I like the whole layered visual apperance with shorts + tights.

    Please post a clearer photo Shah when you decide to incorporate the new piece in an outfit.

    edit:
    The suspender pants are also really cool but linen
    Need some F/W pants

    Congratulations on scoring those zipper trousers, kiko! Do you mean the size 4 ones that just finished on Ebay? I was tempted, but decided not to bid in the end, since I already have what seems to be an almost identical pair. Knowing the drama you had with the other zipper trousers, I'm really glad I didn't bid! I'll be interested to hear more about them. The seller claims that they are 100% wool, but the ones I have, which look identical to the ones on Ebay, are a blend of 65% wool/ 35 % nylon, which makes them very tough, and goes well with the zipper feature, though for that reason makes them move less fluidly than some of my other Yohji trousers.

    On the subject of long sought for items, my Yohji grail-quest has started focusing more and more on two items. I am desperate to get either of the following suits in a size 4. I've seen lots of Yohji outfits that I would love to wear on different occasions, and this applies to some of my more formal YYPH purchases (e.g. the long coat from the Gypsy collection); but I could see myself living in either of these two suits more or less permanently. I just love everything about them: elegant, nonchalant, striking and original without being showy . . . If anyone comes across either suit, or any of the pieces individually, in a size 4, and is not possessed by a desire to possess them[​IMG], then please send me a PM.

    Met a local friend of mine and he had this particular YYPH blazer which i found to be something similar to what Iwri has. Kinda interesting fabric which felt like lightweight linen. Thought you guys might be interested. Maybe someone here could have been looking for these. The label had this code HV-J19-305.

    the code says 100 so i'm pretty sure they are not blend. i was planning to go very high, didn't want to lose a pair again... and luckily this style are the trousers worn with my jacket on the runway by SUGGS from Madness. now its time to sell few stuff.

    Did you get in that color ? Outstanding. There's a sz2 in black and I recently spotted a dark green...

    Does anyone know anything about Yohji Yamamoto Gothic Homme. I've come across a very few pieces, and I'm interested to know where it stands in terms of quality relative to Y's for Men, what the focus of it was etc. The name makes it sound like Noir for men.The pieces I've seen have all been shirts, but I haven't been able to handle them in person, so I can't speak for the quality of fabric or construction.
