    Sick. Don't even want to know the price...

    It was quite reasonable actually (as far as yohji coats go...), I managed to take around 40% off the EU price by buying it at the Aoyama flagship and getting the tax refunded (they also loaded me up with a few freebies!). Came to around £2700 (this is the same coat that sold out for £8300 on farfetch)

    Not bad at all, all things considered. Congrats - beautiful piece. I still love Yohji's design and craftsmanship. But prices are certainly eye-watering.

    I bought oil pastels. I am going to draw pictures. I choose oil pastels as they have a bright color. Hope I have chances to share with you guys my painting.

    The jacket is cool. I like this kind of style.

    Three things in recent months:

    This ersatz silver watch from CCP, bought used



    A bag from By Walid, made using 19th-century fabric




    Last but not least, this Yohji Yamamoto coat from SS20. It was marked down to over 60% off the UK retail price. Still expensive, but not offensive.

    damn, that Yamamoto print: what a stunning color!

    That coat is lovely.
    I like Yamamoto best when he incorporates color and color patterns.
    Cannot stop looking at Yamamoto‘s ways of using color.

    I recently bought a pair of leather shoes. I really like the color, size, and durability of the leather.

    Isaac Sellam Experience Arpenteur



    I did not find much about this brand here on the forum but I found it very interesting.
    It is made from some leather/jersey alloy (?) that makes it elastic.
    The elastic material and a 3d-ish/anatomical design reminiscent of Devoa makes it super comfortable.
    It seems like a garment from the future to me because it is so practical in an elegant innovative way.

    Are you kidding me, Isaac Sellam is a benchmark in handmade leather industry, and the jacket absolutely amazing especially when i see your fit picture looks like made for you, good choice ��

    @darkpyramid Thank you for the kind encouragement! It indeed seems very right sizewise - fwiw I am 183cm/78kg now and this is a size L . I‘ll find out more about the designer and his output.

    Isaac has got an incredible eye for detail but a lot of his stuff is kind of over the top. I have a leather blazer that is subtle and perfect but then I have a heavy leather jacket that is a bit too structured and the cut is a little too dramatic for normal wear. Kind of reminds me of the earlier Obscur stuff before he reigned in the designs. I quite like the jacket you got.

    You really ought to check out the stuff he's been doing with the translucent Apparition leather that Sruli Recht developed. It's a pretty revolutionary material. I almost bought a jacket for kicks but I really can't see myself wearing it much.

    Absolutely agree - I saw the translucent items (jackets and backpacks) and was very impresed - but could not imagine putting it to any good / regular use. I still considered buying it because I felt a lot of platonical love for it.
    Which jacket do you own? A fur lined lamb one?
    I recently bought another Isaac Sellam item - a leather pant, super simple almost like a jogging pant, with a drawstring. It‘s elastic like the jacket which makes it super comfortable.

    I have this high-neck Taichi Murakami coat in a dark gray fabric, it's amazing! Though very slim fitting.

    For some reason, I have a problem with this jacket where its PVC lining quickly begins to stink from armpit sweat and I haven't found a good way to clean that yet. Any pointers? Don't have this issue with other jackets.

    I had also tried the problem with a RO leather jacket and many household remedies, starting with pure alcohol and vinegar water, which you spray on, over soda or baking soda, of course also Febreeze and it all didn't really help. A German special product from the drugstore probably contains only surfactants, but kills the smell - in case of non-washable textiles spray it on carefully and then very, very gently with lukewarm water wash out the surfactants again, let it dry, wash it out again - and voilŠ, the smell is gone. Surely such products are also available in your drugstore? And - as with cosmetics - patch-testing beforehand in a place that you can't see that the product doesn't damage your textile, especially since it is PVC?

    Thanks for the tips, mamooon. I haven't been able to track down where to buy an analog to that in Canada yet (some kind of surfactant spray), but I appreciate the otherwise viable solution.
