I will look up the Kent Brush that you mentioned - thank you for the comment on my piece:)

170 is cheap! I wish that there were regular ways to find nice second hand Yohji pieces here in the UK :(

Yeah, my wife is Japanese and my in laws let me ship stuff to their house and I just pick it up whenever I go there. Although if you search hard enough you can find stuff especially vintage suits for not much because formalwear is just not cool for many people. Although balloon pants and stuff with some hype ain’t never coming down

I am sad that it seems like this forum has kind of died off compared to how busy it seemed in the beginning.

If anyone wants a chat or has anything they want to show, or even pieces that they are considering selling please let me know!

re: dog hair... I think the more the merrier. I recently read this FT piece on Yohji and this line caught my eye:

Yamamoto arrives, his black layers flecked with dog hair. He lights a cigarette and laughs as I tell him about the coat I bought last season from his Conduit Street store – my most ruinous fashion purchase in years. “You think my clothes are expensive?” he asks rhetorically, with mock horror. “More expensive than what!?

love this. Guess it’s all about embracing imperfections right?

Two leather jackets added to S'yte catalogue. Limited experience but I've found the S'yte products to be simple but well made. Styles are pretty basic, not sure if they offer anything beyond any other leather jacket offering.

S'yte has lots of nice Yohji "basics". I have some of the balloon pants and a long sleeve tee. quality and design are nice. Just not quite as "interesting" as the main lines.

@takashi78 Yeah I'm a little baffled at how many lines there are. Seems like they are trying to really fragment their audience into little discreet market segments. I guess there are some fans who really just like the goth stuff or the athletic stuff or what-have-you.

Whats weird is, i tried on a YYPH tshirt recently in my country.
Only to find the exact same design on the official online store but branded under "Black Scandal".

What gives?
Prices are about the same though.

Oh and i recently bought the 3-pack tshirt from the official site, prices seems to be 20-30% more than Japan domestically.
Shipping was really fast though.

YY was a dumb amount of diffusion lines for no reason. It would do him better to just consolidate most lines into a couple lines. I mean it’s not like YY hasn’t gone through tough times before, now would be a great time to quietly combine lines.
