    Yohji Yamamoto Rare Fully Lined Leather Tote Bag
    Perfectly sized
    Pristine Condition


    If you are at all familiar with Yohji Yamamoto accessories (and garments), you would already know that they are some of the most pricey available. This includes not only mainline Yohji, but the more youthful Y's collection, which is in no way any less in quality as many secondary lines frequently are.

    In my opinion, the pricing is justified as neither the garments nor accessories seem to become dated. The quality of their construction is bar none, and I live by their leather bags -- both in the messenger style as well as shoulder bags. The Yohji mainline as well as the Y's line are all constructed at the same sites in Japan -- the only difference is in the design and not in the quality of the materials used in the creation of the goods.

    The quality of their construction means they may be used for decades (as I have several of my own Yohji Yamamoto bags.)

    Guidi Mid-height Oxfords
    Horse Leather
    Condition 9.5/10

    Worn once by me
    Size 37, best for 36.5 or 37 A (Narrow) or 37 normal width if you have them stretched out at the cobblers.
    Already Vibramed
    Color in photos is accurate

    Beautiful, marbled dye Guidis. Every pair is handmade. I have some Guidi and Rosellini shoes (that was the company before the makeover that would turn them into the Guidi we are familiar with) that are more than 30 years old and they fit like socks so these so last just as long if not longer.

    These have been worn once by me and were essentially new when I received them from Rider. They are a touch small for me -- they are marked 37, but I think they are best for a IT 37 A (or Narrow) or IT 36.5. You can also take them to the cobblers to have them stretched out.

    They are made of polished horse and feature leather laces which can be wrapped around the shoe or tied in a conventional manner.

    If you've ever wondered what shoes pair ideally with Yohji Yamamoto's designs, these are it.

    Condition: 9.5/10











    I own several pair of Guidi boots and each pair becomes more beautiful as the leather gains a patina with wear and age.

    Asking: $595 pp fees and shipping included CONUS. $20 shipping supplement outside of US. Shoes will not be sent with a box to save on shipping fees, but if you'd like it included, add $8 for shipping with box in or out of the US.


    Guidi Oxblood Open Toed Mid Height Heel Laced Oxfords
    Sz 38. Fits 37.5 best. Will fit 37 with socks or insert or a snug 38.
    Height: 3" heel
    New, Unworn
    Polished Horse
    Leather Laces





    Asking: $625 pp fees and shipping included CONUS. $20 shipping supplement outside of US. Shoes will not be sent with a box to save on shipping fees, but if you'd like it included, add $8 for shipping with box in or out of the US.

    Guidi Kangaroo Leather Low Heel Laced Work Boots
    Size IT 37 Fits 36.5 or narrow 37 best. (I wear a true 37). If you intend to wear thick socks with these, you should be a IT 36.5
    Condition: 8.5/10


    Beautiful shape, particularly toe area. I have polished and treated these with Saphir leather products -- the best on the market for conditioning and polishing. Have been worn only one season.






    Fit pic with Guidi:


    Kangaroo leather is less structured than calf, bison or horse but it is also significantly more lightweight.

    You can treat them just as you would any other shoe made of calf, bison or horse. These have not been vibramed. They have a leather sole which can be replaced whole. These are beautiful shoes.


    Asking: $675 incl. PP fees. Shipping $15 in the US. $40 shipping supplement outside of the US.

    Ann Demeulemeester
    SS 2012
    Ombre Tank Dress with Pin Tuck Detail and Removable Matching Tie Belt at Waist

    Size FR 36

    Condition: brand new, never worn.









    Sizing notes: Is designed to be worn oversize. Can be worn by someone who usually takes 34 (me) up to 40, depending on how one styles the dress.

    Must be layered as it is sheer. Can be styled in a multitude of ways. Hem is shorter in the middle and longer on the sides. Oversized but belt allows you to adjust the dress to fit every size from F34-F40.

    Measurements:
    Shoulders: 13"
    Bust: 36"
    Waist 23.5"
    Length: 36.5" - 39" (edges)

    Styling suggestions:
    Most people would wear this as is -- it doesn't require more since the ombre color is sufficiently beautiful that the piece stands on its own. However, since people always ask my to style anything I post for sale, I have taken the liberty to style this in one of the many ways I'd wear it.

    Here I am wearing the dress over a slip and with a vintage Ann Demeulemeester mini skirt with single suspender that is bunched at the waist and belted low. The skirt is worn over the dress so that the hem of the dress falls below the hem of the skirt.

    With the dress, I am wearing a vintage Veronique Branquinho summer cotton tuxedo blazer, a Margiela silk scarf, cotton leggings and a favorite pair of Yohji Yamamoto ankle boots with attached, visible hemp lining.

    Asking: $395 including PP fee and shipping in US. $20 shipping supplement outside of US.
    NOW $325

    Ann Demeulemeester
    Pristine Vintage "Life" Cotton Sleeveless T-Shirt

    (This t-shirt was re-issued as part of the Blanche collection recently. This is an original, made in Belgium. For the purposes of collecting, I try to limit my purchases of Ann D pieces to those made in Belgium though I don't always get what I want...)

    Size FR 36






    This is a beautifully constructed, vintage "Life" silk-screen sleeveless cotton t-shirt. This piece was made in Belgium and has not been worn. The garment has been constructed with an incredible amount of care; as you can see, there are pin-tucks on the back of the shirt to ensure a close fit.

    Measurements:

    Shoulder: 13"
    Bust: 14.5"
    Length (back): 22"
    Length (front) 23.5"



    Asking: $150 PP and shipping included in US. $10 shipping supplement outside of US.
    NOW $100.

    Rick Owens SS 2011 'Limo V-Neck Sleeveless Tunic Top with Gathered Front with Crepe.'

    Fabrication: Viscose/Wool/Silk. In my opinion this textile combo is superior to its later reissue from Naska in Viscose/Rayon.

    Crepe texture with gentle slubby texture. It is a great piece for layering or can be worn on its own.


    Rick Owens SS 2011 LIMO Viscose Wool & Silk V-Neck Drape front short tunic dress by MetroBulotDodo

    His pieces are meant to fit more oversize of late. I usually wear IT 38 in Rick, which is its size. However, I am a 31.5 bust measurement, and this piece can fit me (31.5) up to a 34C.

    Measurements:
    Length: front hankerchief hem from 35"-38"
    Back Length: 30"
    Shoulder 11"
    Bust 36"

    Lavender Color. Crisp Cotton Poplin Lining in Contrast White
    Longer in Front. Shorter length in back.

    Fit notes: fits, ideally, someone who wears IT 40-42. In my opinion, it would be best on someone who has a longer torso or is 5'5" or taller.

    This jacket was originally bought and sold by some merchandisers as a men's piece and others as a women's piece. It is clearly a unisex garment.

    Default Lost & Found Cotton Shirt w Long Sleeves + Throne Collar

    Lost & Found Tunic Length Cotton Shirt
    w/ extra long sleeves


    When I first received the shirt, it didn't fit particularly well. With some adjustments, especially to the collar as well as ironing the seams where the sleeve is set into the body of the shirt, I managed to flatten the silhouette of the shoulder so that it follows the lines of a feminine shoulder better.

    The most significant adjustment I did was to style the collar so that it is now a throne collar a la a more Carpe Diem-style collar.

    I also buttoned the body of the shirt in a way so that the front buttons close in an accordian-style. I suggest keeping the buttons the way they are when the shirt arrives to you as it makes the silhouette more interesting.

    I have only worn the shirt out once, and once more for the styled photos that accompany this listing. The shirt is a true XS.

    Four buttons may be found on each cuff.
    A detachable belt is included. It buttons on to the shirt via two buttons found on the back of the shirt.

    The shirt is tunic length. The hem is rounded with two high cuts on either side.

    Measurements:

    Shoulders 15.5"
    Bust 19"
    Length: 30.5"
    Sleeve length 27.5"









    Asking: $220 + $8 shipping CONUS. $18 shipping outside of US.

    Lost & Found Twisted Shirt w Box Pockets w Flap Closure on Bust, Covered Front Placket and Extra Long Sleeves

    Sz XS


    Condition: 10/10 Unworn except for styled photos.
    Fabrication 93% cotton, 7% cashmere

    Color: black

    Measurements:

    Shoulder 16"
    Bust 19"
    Sleeve length 30.5"
    Length 44" - 49"













    Asking: $290 + $8 US Priority Mail w/ Tracking Conus. $16 shipping outside of US.

    Hi Jurassicsnark,

    I forgot to mark the Ann D white dress as sold.

    However, the ombre dress is still available. The dress is marked F36 but is oversized. The waist measures 23.5" (47"), and the matching silk tie at the waist allows the wearer to adjust the dress to fit a person of any size.

    Hope that helps,

    MBD

    Veronique Branquinho

    Beautiful, classic Veronique Branquinho Jacket with semi-attached matching belt. Buttons up in front. Features bell sleeves with elastic cuffs, Single vent at back. I believe this fits small for its size -- please see exact measurements for precise fit.

    As garments from most Belgian designers, the matching tie belt at waist is secured with a button and a strap ensuring that you won't lose it easily.

    Other details:

    chin strap,
    buttons secured with buttons on back to keep them from falling off
    lined
    stitching behind collar so that collar can be flipped up easily
    two pockets at hips
    padded to create lightly structured shoulders





    Measurements:
    Shoulders 14"
    Bust 32"
    Waist 29"
    Length 27.5"
    Sleeves 25.5"





    Superb construction. I have worn this coat once. Condition: no visible wear, damage or piling whatsoever.
