Vintage 1980s Yohji Yamamoto Mens Jacket Oversized Green Velvet Stripes Size S L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage mens jacket designed by Yohji Yamamoto. The jacket dates to the 1980s and, although sized as small, is oversized, as per the avant garde style of the period - please read the sizing section below. It is made in a striped green rayon velvet, unusual for Yamamoto, who usually produced black garments. The jacket has padded shoulders, slightly peaked lapels, a two button closure, a chest pocket, a flapped pocket at either side, two button cuffs and is fully lined in grey rayon. There is no back vent.
Label: Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme Made in Japan. Yamamoto introduced his menswear line in 1984.
Material: 100% rayon
Sizing: Size S for small is indicated, but due to the oversized style, this actually could be worn by a much larger size - it was floating on my husband, who wears a size large. Please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the jacket into consideration:
Shoulders: 22” across from seam to seam
Sleeve: 25" from the shoulder seam
Chest: 48” around
Waist: 48” around
Overall length: 36", measured flat
Condition: The velvet has some matting, but this should be rectified by a professional cleaning and pressing. Otherwise, no other wear, tear, staining or odour.
This is a wonderful example of Yohji Yamamoto design - oversized 80s relaxed style in a striking colour!
