I think you have seen the labels that are sealed/stamped in vermilion or something.
it's the seal of the person in charge of the piece.

and those capital letters in question were printed there for the same purpose as that seal.
some of the stuff should have the letters instead of the seal.
maybe, isn't it a shirt user500 ?
there was a certain period they produced shirts at a manufacturer named amano, amano shirt.

i was lucky enough to find several mid-80s japanese fashion magazines on 6th av the other day. some are called "Hi Fashion" and others are titled in japanese, so i don't know what they are called. when i get a chance i will scan more pages as there are many runway pics of cdg, yohji, issey, and other lesser known japanese designers. but here is a page from one of them showing a/w 85 collection highlights from issey miyake and junko shimada.



i have the coat shown in the first issey miyake runway picture:

in the 1q84 novel murakami writes that a female character wore a black jkt by cdg and a gucci hand bag to a dinner to an upscale restaurant. It was 1984. I'd like to imagine cdg jkt and gucci handbag (how could he?). and the character was a police woman.

sorry for off topic.
