    Now that's a good offer!

    I actually found some time ago a great pair of boots from the very beginning of the 20th century in great condition. They work with YY wardrobe sublimely.

    You know,

    ...I think that just because the RWs and chucks etc do work very well with Yohji's stuff doesn't mean that others couldn't be better. In the case of runway shows, I actually think that they were the most convenient styles that were accessible and could work - remember these shows were in a time when you might only have been able to get those shitty thin sole extended toe almost clown-shoe looking things, or square toe abominations in reasonable and reliable quantities. Also, there are probably more silhouettes that would work than those shown - although I do think the footwear choices were very appropriate.

    I guess what I'm saying is that you can still roam the auction houses and stalk the online boutiques for something that is perfect!

    I've just put a Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme men's shirt up on Ebay, if anyone is interested. It's size 4. Oh and those white circles are light spots or something, not stains. I'm going to replace the photos with better ones today.

    The crotch area looks a little weird. Kind of a mangina sort of thing...

    ^^^ If I remember correctly, there was someone (maybe him?) posting earlier that they got some Yohji suspenders.

    i like the braces, was thinking to buy pair for myself but decided not to. in my opinion those braces with that pattern need to be worn by someone with tough expression, not so childish. older person maybe with beard or tattoos or long hair (not all together ofc) something that will make the braces more ironic. also i don't think they actually holding your jeans/trousers.

    regards the outfit, i would say it's more jil sander than undercover. maybe if you put looser pants that are actually hold by the braces and throw hat, will look better imo.

    I think you should replace or remove that horrible watch and those braces, although they're pretty nice, if you don't look closely enough they could also be Mickey Mouse or something.

    @ xumatrix I agree with what everyone said about the suspenders/braces. Would work a lot better if they were functional rather than just aesthetic. And while I agree with what kiko is saying about needing a bit more grizzle or age to pull off the pattern on the suspenders, it could be possible for you to do if you just went all out with your outfit. Huge suspender pants and a nice rumpled Yohji jacket so that the pattern peeks out at people rather than being full on in their face like that. Heh.

    1234, the stripe pants tend to look harder to pull off than they actually are in person. Just throw on a nice shirt and a jacket in darker colours (navy or just black) and you should be good to go. Nice and easy summer pants.

    Don't think this has been posted yet..?

    Yohji Yamamoto Fall 2004

    I can't wait for a video of this show to turn up online somewhere. Being able to watch the coats been put on or taken off revealing the awesome dresses below or seeing all that glorious pattern matching going on in the first part of the show in motion would be great. Also love how he brought in floral print for Fall and managed to make it all seem appropriate by his use of fabric and the vibrant but restrained colour palette.

    That last picture of the orange dress is gorgeous. (Or the dress is, or both. Yeah.)
