    This used to make me super-paranoid of taking my YY stuff to the dry cleaners here, but after a while I stopped caring so much. I guess that "tragedy" is really part & parcel of the whole thing. No point in fighting the natural process of aging and decay, one should just embrace it :nodding:


    I think the sizing will be perfect for you actually, especially with the pants being "L". Would love to see a fit pic. The fabric looks really nice. I definitely need to find some grey pants as well.

    Dude, you are totally in trouble now. Trying on a mainline jacket and/or pants is usually when you get hooked if you are going to at all :slayer:

    You could google "home dry cleaning" for some possible solutions. [​IMG]

    great fabric. I'm sure you can make this work. you might have to let those sleeves out for maximum yohji effect though. be sure to post a pic.

    Yeah, the sleeves will definitely have to come down, probably to their fullest - although I guess it's possible that the dropped shoulder makes up for it - I'll have to see. In my head i'm picturing a slouchy, 3-season mid-weight suit that I can wear with vans or boots and a plain white shirt, hopefully one of the few that I already have (can't be replacing my whole wardrobe with yohji now, can I?).

    To be honest, I can't believe it went for that little. It appears to be in perfect condition, and as multiple people have pointed out, a really nice fabric. I put in a half-hearted bid that I was pretty sure would end up being buried in the deluge, but now I'm really, really excited.

    :) I probably would have bid on that if I saw it, even though I'm shorter than you. I think it will feel pretty voluminous at first esp with the long rise and wide shoulder. but if it's got the slouchy, soft factor, it will be great for that summer/casual vibe. it's a nice change of pace to have all that drapey cloth after wearing skinny stuff for awhile.

    Yeah I would have tried to get my hands on that as well I think. It's all good though.

    I really like synth's drapey outfits, they exude such a nice vibe. This suit should be very much up his alley I think.

    Synth, I am still jealous of that Raf blazer with the wrinkly texture you picked up :drool:. Tried to do a version of the fit you posted with that jacket a couple of days ago actually :embar: :D

    My first fit pic is here:

    [​IMG]

    Wool felt hat, wool gabardine "Yohji jacket" (I also got the whole hakama suit, this jacket and the unpleated wool gabardine drawstring hakama, with Drew's help), wool gabardine waistcoat, cotton button-up shirt (with collar and cuffs detached), leather belt, wool gabardine hakama, all by YYPH. The boots are Red Wing Shoes.

    Back-to-back great fits.

    Glad you decided to put up a pic of the hakama suit wire, good stuff.

    Is that the SS12 shirt dress Neo? Never mind just had a good look at the picture on my laptop, looks great. Must be awesome to see in motion.

    Amazing first fit pic valter. Love the boots as well.

    Thanks Ivwri, PPPP, and Parker. What are the chances of three similar silhouettes posted one after the other? Anyway, Parker wants in on the action too. He would look superb with his new gladiator sandals.:slayer:
