one own any of the YY leather goods?
How do you find the quality and construction?
There is a small shoulder bag on sale now and thinking if grabbing one
I have the black Y Body bag from the discord line. Quality and construction is nice but it's made from soft leather so not exactly something to be tossed around.

Any

Recently for the first time i tried on a YYPH t-shirt, looking at the measurements on websites i was always hesitant.
But today, i am pleasantly surprised that it was not at all super oversized.

I picked up a pair of y’s sneakers for £18 second hand. They were a little worn, but I’ve cleaned them up and given them some nice new cream laces, and they’re looking as good as new. Just wondered if anyone here might be able to take a guess at when they might have been produced.

Any help ID'ing a Yohji piece. The label says FU-J02-417 -A. It's a double breasted silk jacket with silver arm zippers, womens piece. Just curious what year collection it is.

I've definitely seen some size 3 pants with smaller ~30" waists. The waist could have also been altered, and could potentially be let out if there is seam allowance. You could send the seller a question?

Continuing my theme of simple, insipid questions for this thread, could any of the Yo-Pro's help me out with general sizing. I'm 183cm and have been looking to grab some YY pants. Looking about I gathered I'd be a 3, but everything from 1 to 4 in Pour Homme seems to have stuff that would comfortably fit in the waist, the inseam, and hem. Am I missing something? I had a YYPH coat some years ago in size 1 and it was big on me, so I'd happily believe the pants would fit.

You should only use height as a measure of which size to take, and for you either 3 or more likely a 4 would work

That is if you wish to stay true to the YY aesthetic. If you’re pairing with random other stuff then ymmv

Thanks, bud. I was a bit confused with the whole affair, not being too in the know with Yohji. The size 4 waist measurements are crazy in most instances. I'm 183cm but also 68kg. Some pants become cropped by virtue of this. As do OTR shirts in a lot of cases.
