    Dear Folks:

    Today found a shirt by Yuji Yamada. Odd design. Body is perforated -- cotton, I think. Collar, yoke and cuffs are probably nylon. All is light gray. Labels don't list material.

    Only info I can find on the label is on superfuture, noting that a store called Midwest in the shibuya section of Tokyo stocked it -- at least in 2000.

    Does anyone know more about the label?

    Oddly enough I bought something off eBay from him, and then re-sold it at a Buffalo exchange. I wasn't too impressed, but more likely it was that I couldn't afford to eat at the time.

    I really don't know a thing about the label.

    He is Tokyo-based, and started his flagship in 1995. Currently, his items are sold at I.T., and Barney's.

    I.T. is a department store in Hong Kong. Its claim to fame was a controversy involving clothing with Nazi symbols.

    Funny, LK, I read your sig, thought for just a moment that it might be from the Lottery, then I googled the quote to see. I was right, yes, but the first thing that came up as a search result was this forum.
