    So, a while back there was some discussion about a few YYPH pieces sold second-hand with misspelled tags reading "INSTRCTIONS" and "ETIQETTE" instead of "INSTRUCTIONS" and "ETIQUETTE."

    As an additional data point, here's another one in the wild. Image from (edit : removed) :

    [​IMG]

    I've never seen the type of hanging signature tag shown in the other photos, but perhaps someone can fill in that detail. It's too bad there's no photo of the fabric code, or we could see if it lines up with the collection from the previous poster's pieces -- perhaps the misspelled labels are legit and were confined to a single season.

    So, who's with me to put together a fund to pick up this piece and deconstruct it for evidence of chicanery? :D I'm almost willing to take a flyer on it myself for Y5000.

    @reff_fink I think it was Arche that started this discussion about legit YYPH/Y's pieces, and in fact I was in the " fake " camp originally. However after the vastly experienced Wire.Artist and Asobu expressed their views, and I later checked some of my runway pieces ( which are 100% genuine ), I've concluded I've been wrong stating pieces with those labels are fake. This aint a definitive claim but based on experience pieces from perhaps before 2005 sometimes do carry these labels and they are definitely genuine pieces. YYPH ain't worth the hassle of counterfeiting due to its relatively niche appeal, unlike Y-3.

    speaking of tags, does the small red signature tab signify anything? from the (small) images of the runway, I think spring/summer 2000 used a few of those little red tabs on jackets… off the chest pocket or off the front placket.

    Hey guys,

    I got two jackets from this past FW in size 2. Both fit okay but are a little on the snug side for yohji. If there's anyone out there with the same piece(s) in a size3 looking to size down and swap for my size 2, hit me up!

    (this is slightly different from mine. it has a different fabric with a diagonal "twill" effect for the outer layer. mine is classic wool gab. exact same two-layer jacket though)

    any clue what season these might be, the red tab might be a hint ??

    Yup, I do indeed have that same pair of pants. Picked them up from wireartist and they are SS2000 as cupper said.

    Great pickup indeed.

    The one I am wearing in that picture is from A/W 2011. Great pants as well.

    Come to think of it, I've yet to see anything online. Most places seem to be ending their sales this weekend so I expect their new season listings are ready to go.

    Conduit St, unsurprisingly, has had lots of SS14 for weeks.


    In other news, I just won the Simon Le Bon 80s YYPH blue wool suit that's been knocking around ebay for weeks. When first listed it was £500, but they posted it again with a £150 starting price, I put in an opening bid for just that and to my surprise was the only bidder. I was expecting to see it go for at least a little more, around the £250-300 mark, so perhaps the Duran Duran association ended up lowering the price!

    Not that I'm complaining, and hey, The Chauffeur is one of the all-time great 80s b-sides. That, and I'd have been happy paying that for the jacket alone, so the pants are a bonus.

    Few small holes in the sleeve, but nothing that even I couldn't fix, not that it even seems visible in the first place.

    I've actually never tried to wear size 3 (the suit is marked M) yohji mainline pants before, on account of how some of the sz2 pants I own are massive enough already. From the pictures it doesn't look slim, but not overly oversized. The waist is adjustable, and of course I own a belt. 34" inseam seems manageable. For non-Yohji I usually get a 32" leg, anticipating rolling things up a little, so these will probably just require an extra roll or two. Could get them taken up also, and if it doesn't work out they're promised to a friend already.

    This'll be the first time I've handled a Yohji suit from the 80s, so colour me excited on that front.

    I love the chest pockets.

    One thing I'm slightly concerned about is the shoulder pads, because I won't see til I try it on where they'll fall on my body - if the jacket's on the bigger side I can imagine it looking off. It's not a course of action I'm likely to take, but does anyone have experience taking the padding out (done professionally or otherwise)?
