    Judging by Gilt's previous Yohji offerings, i'm not holding out great hope... especially when they're still selling Y's for men... so it's 3-4 years old at least. I'll wait to see it though.

    the jacket I wore in my last fit has appeared for the past 4-5 yohji sales on gilt but in a greenish color. perfect for spring, cotton/ramie blend

    I had a dream about dancing in Yohji. I'm glad I'm not alone in the idea.

    oh dear no. well it has a fun lining but it's not reversible.

    i'm not saying it's going to be there tomorrow, either, but just that it has come up in every gilt yohji sale for the past half a year at least, size 3.

    in the world of yohji, speaking with no authority whatsoever except parroting what's been said in this thread before, it's just height that matters. y's is slimmer than PH but not slim cut by any means. size by your vertical measure accordingly :

    1 = midget
    2 = short
    3 = average
    4 = tall
    5 = sipang​

    More likely than not sizes will be mostly in the 3-4 range, 2s are rare and 1s even rarer since they're not always made.

    I look forward (to possibly being disappointed) tomorrow

    ^ please do :slayer:

    thanks for posting those pics Ivwri, a great way to capture the hakamas in motion. I urge anyone who has the opportunity - regardless of if you wear Yohji on the regular or not - to try at least one iteration of the hakamas. I didn't know what to expect but they felt incredibly natural and comfortable to me. Absolutely beautiful, I didn't want to take them off.

    I expect Gilt sold out all their ss09/aw09/ss10 stock last time around during the clearing sale? I suppose it's possible they will serve up some ss11 with a dash of aw10? If so, fuck me for being dead broke. You basically can't go wrong with those collections, unless it's all top hats, buckle shoes and ruffle shirts.

    Quoted so you can't go back on your word :slayer:

    Actually, if there is any SS11 in the Gilt sale, I am going to have to second asobu's request. I am looking for a few things from that collection :nodding:

    Glad you guys liked the photos.


    Thanks and yeah I really dig the coat - nice one wire! - even though I don't have much of an opportunity to wear it (traveling with it next month though). I hear that Karlo Steel of Atelier NY has one, we could arrange a mugging...

    First day out with the wide hakama pants. Not completely happy with the shoes, but they seem to be the best option right now

    Thought they sold all their ss09 stuff but apparently not, very little YYPH and mainly just ss09 leftovers though the pants are always good. Nothing I want except for the jacket to my grail suit from ss09/look 1, too expensive for me though. Other than that, one ss08 jacket and a pair of ss07 pants? I wonder why nothing from collections following ss10 has made it to Gilt...
