    Anyway, I just caught up with the last few days of posts here, glad to see not only this discussion but several great fits posted as well. It's good that you guys are keeping this thread on the first page!! Ivwri, really loved that fit with the mandarin collar jacket and the cropped pants, great shape overall, sharp and relaxed at the same time. Also like dante and david bringing some vintage goodness and bulky shapes in these last few pages, always good to see. I'm guessing that jacket is indeed from the 80's, David!

    Big thanks for those scans and pics too. Love that SS06 stuff Parker, if you have any more catalouge shots like these from other collections please post up more! Haven't seen those before.

    Damn, dante and asobu looking cool :slayer:

    I tried posting this on Saturday, but it seems to be stuck in moderating purgatory, so I thought I'd post again.

    Shirt has layered collar that buttons on one side, from SS11. The trousers are from the final Coming Soon collection. The blazer is actually Comme from SS98 (going back to the older discussion, I definitely think older CdG works better with Yohji - the tailoring was looser and the fabrics did not feel quite as 'pristine'...the newer stuff always feels like it needs to be worn in, unlike Yohji).

    Great stuff guys! Looks like you have been let out of purgatory syed so hopefully we can now get more pics from you without the typical moderation delay.

    That double layer detail is great asobu. It's what I really liked on the long 010 cotton jacket he did this season as well. Always cool to see things like this being repeated and experimented with from older seasons.

    Will put up a fit once I get to my laptop, I think I am finally satisfied with the stand collar jacket and the way the placket hangs heh. Very versatile addition to the wardrobe for sure and is kind of cementing the direction I want to pursue primarily as a Yohji uniform for myself.

    Shirt is SS12 long shirt HB - B04 - 021 from look 10 I believe. I really like the way the 021 cotton rumples and the stiching on the placket and cuffs helps to emphasise degrees of rumpling on the different parts of the shirt. Wearing SS00 high-waisted pants and Margiela GATs from last season.

    Syed, Ivwri, Dante, Asobu, all great fit pics!

    Asobu so this is the grail coat! It fits perfectly, the length and the sleeves hit just spot on :) It goes really well with the rest of the look.

    Syed, your SS11 shirt is the same one I posted with my AW05 blazer I think. Wire also had it but sold.

    Dante, that AW09 shirt is amazing, and very rare, don't think I have ever seen it in auctions.

    ^thanks!

    Ivwri, the ss12 jacket really works well with so many silhouettes, great piece. Really like the full cut pants here.

    Yeah, really happy I picked it up. Decided to use this trip to give it a proper working out and it is proving to have been a good idea.

    This whole page is making me pretty happy too, hehe. Also nice to see different looks all coming from the same base of white shirts and black jackets and pants. Sneakers, boots and shoes are all represented too.

    Guess this got caught in the post purgatory as well. Glad you are enjoying the thread (1440 + posts wow!). It is actually pretty cool that we all seem to get along on here all that's missing is some good food and alcohol to complete the picture, hehe.

    And now, for a non sequitur -

    something that i read today on the train back home. while reading it, i was thinking about yohji's garments and how most of the people who wear them are not static. the wearer can feel the movement of the clothes at the same time as people shrouding him.


    Tinguely’s philosophy was expressed in a manifesto entitled “For Statics,” which was printed onto 150,000 fliers that were released from an airplane over Düsseldorf, Germany before an exhibition:
    "Everything moves continuously. Immobility does not exist. Don’t be subject to the influence of out-of-date concepts. Forget hours, seconds, and minutes. Accept instability. Live in time. Be static—with movement. For a static of the present moment. Resist the anxious wish to fix the instantaneous, to kill that which is living. Stop insisting on “value” which cannot but break down. Be free, live. Stop painting time. Stop evoking movement and gesture. You are movement and gesture. Stop building cathedrals and pyramids which are doomed to fall into ruin. Live in the present; live once more in Time and by Time—for a wonderful and absolute reality."


    small selection of obvious and not so obvious examples.

    Thanks Dante. Cool images there. One of my favorite things about wearing the few Yohji things I have is how the fabrics hang... whether moving or just standing around. I especially like how the pants are cut a little bowlegged (?) so even on a slimmer pair you get a bit of that fabric drape that waves around when you walk. I've also liked playing with different silhouettes (narrow top / wide below, wide all around, etc). Most of my other stuff is closely tailored and more traditional which has it's place, but the comfort aspect and drama of having lots of extra material and more unique shapes has been really enjoyable. I second the thanks to Ivwri and Asobu and others who've contributed to this thread and kept it convivial. I find myself going back through to check out photos and links that I've missed the first time. A great resource. Here's another light-hearted video side note. Fashion tv coverage of YYPH SS2003 show. It's kind of funny in that the commentators kinda get, but don't really get Yohji's POV.
