I was told in a store that Junya Watanabe makes only size Small and Medium for women. Is it true? Has anyone heard why he does that?

i would assume it is because the stuff is generally so unconstructed...

i know that the sizing in japan is supposed to be much smaller than in western countries...

other than that i'm not sure...all my stuff is a size small...

Searching the auctions.yahoo.co.japan (auctions page), I couldn't also see any large size, indeed:-)

went to the store where Junya section is a bit narrow space.
it would seem to me that it's a woman's world.

as for the sizing, they said they practically have three sizes.
but, as ngth pointed out, it's rare for stockists here to buy them in size Large. (none did for A/W 04)
then the sizing goes:
size Small in US is equal to size Medium in Japan.
Medium in US equal to Large in Japan.

thanks for checking that runner...

that's very interesting...

seems odd...because i would think that a larger woman would really be the junya/cdg customer in north america...especially taller women who can carry all the fabric and draping they often use......

when it comes to the more boxy and unconstructed stuff... i usually don't even look at the size...i just pick something up and if it looks ok on...i buy it...

faust there are a couple of tops on yoox that i think might work on yelena...i have one of them and helena just bought one...they wrap around...so they should fit most people i think...and they are very very discounted... (of course i paid full price last year... )

just a thought...

hmm well tis to bad, but I can see sens msot of his clothes sell in Japan that it would porbebly be more a wase than a gain to produce larger sizes.

Softgrey, that's exactly right, for Europe also. I was speaking to a woman who owns a shop in England that sells comme , yohji etc, and she was saying that her customers can never get into comme skirts, they're all too small. She bought a heap of the big yohji skirts for men this season, specifically for her women clients!

Is it true for Comme men sizing, too? :-) I would be interested in a Comme jacket in Yoox but they are all size M this autumn. I always think that Comme sizing is in generally a bit larger than usual. So I am sure I am S for Tshirts or shirts, and maybe 46 for suits :-)

I remember that last year I wanted a Tshirt with big, bold flowers or "fruits" badly. But they were just gigantic :-). Comme SA said that the size is "japanese one size".

An apeal to Yoox and any other online shop: Please make notes "shoulder, length, body width" like sellers in ebay or yahoo auctioning:-)

No, I find comme's/junya's men's sizing very forgiving and generous! Actually if I were to own a suit (yea, i don't own one ), it would be comme - because Rei seems to be the only one aware that there are guys out there who are not 6 feet tall.

I totally agree about Yoox. That's why I've always stayed away.

Thanks Faust :-) I will probably have one or two more suits for my whole life and they have to be Comme:-). I already have one (but not Comme:-) for my graduation and it fits very very badly.

Spacemiu, aloharag states that Junya Man jeans small are 30-31 inch in waist. I am also 28-29 :-)
