    Ragtag was quite disappointing at both the Shibuya and Harajuku locations. Stuff that wouldn't even move on Y!jp in a million years, and surprisingly high prices.

    10tow on the other hand was great. More basic/staple type pieces, but a good selection (~20 jackets, 50+ shirts, etc) and range of sizes (most common is 2, but also a lot of 3 and some 4). Prices were about 1/3 Japanese retail, ie jackets for 25-40k etc.

    The Yohji store on Omotesando is amazing, I would say it's the only real Yohji flagship. Paris and London don't compare. They have nearly every item from the YYPH runway collection as well as a good selection from other lines. Prices are roughly 1/2 of European retail. I also checked out a few select shops that stock YYPH, but to be honest there's not much of a point in going to them when the real store exists.

    Will hopefully manage to make it to Osaka on a weekend as Lumiere Vive is only open Saturdays and Sundays. Their focus seems to be more on hard to find pieces from old seasons, with prices being pretty much the same as Japanese retail due to how rare the stuff is.

    Also heads up to anyone looking for 10tow: The location on Google Maps is incorrect. It's the right block, but the wrong building. The correct location is on the Southern side of the block.

    I found this really nice YYPH cardigan on Grailed from early Yohji according to the seller. Apparently there isn't any composition tag so how the heck can we actually determine the age and do you think it's worth it? Thanks! And sorry I'm still new to this.

    Hi Dellacruz,
    welcome to the forum!

    It should be a A/W piece.

    Since it has the newer signature logo,
    that was introduced with the AW 91 season
    and it has the M sizing it is certainly from
    a season between AW 91 and AW 99!
    This i can tell you for sure!

    The numerical sizing started with SS 00 and
    the season codes were introduced in AW 92,
    so if it really had no material tag, i would guess
    it is from AW 91.

    Maybe someone from the forum knows this particular cardigan,
    and can identify the exact season.


    From the photo it looks good, with a nice oversize silhouette.
    What's the price?

    The seller has it listed for 400. He listed it as 8/10 condition due to some pilling. Just hesitant on if I should buy or not. I really like to know the full background of a piece before I buy ya know?

    Here's the description of said item:
    Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme
    Heavyweight buttoned cardigan
    Size M (Free size)
    Made in Japan
    No composition tag, probably made from a wool/nylon blend.
    A very heavy knit from early Yohji Yamamoto, When I mean heavy I MEAN HEAVY. It's a very thick knit that creates it's own silhouette when worn. Features 2 pockets on the front and a couple of buttons.
    8/10 - In good condition!

    Sure i understand. Always nice to hear about the history
    of the garments. You could try to spot it on the runway
    photos/videos.

    it seems a bit pricy to me! It's a nice item though and seems mint condition.

    Sorry i can't help you more specify the exact season.

    No worries I appreciate the help! Do you think this is worth a buy (Probably could negotiate a lower price) or should I hold off?

    Just know that that seller flips everything from yahoo Japan (and related Japanese sites like rakuten) and it is highly unlikely he spent more than $200-250 himself on it total.

    Is that seller "God" you're referring to? If so I bought some CDGHP stuff from him in the past at good deals because some of his stuff sits for a long time. This is another seller but I'm not sure if I should buy this Cardigan or not
