^actually, after i typed that i remembered you buying a pair of blue jeans
with contrast stitching that were sort of charlie's angels. :p
so i guess my memory is faulty...

here is a better pic of the dress, from my friend who i bought it from.
it's a bit looser around the waist on me....

yes, i quite enjoyed those jeans on you.

i also have an amusing pair... high-waisted, light blue ones from last summer. They are flared at the bottom and very 70's looking,
in an Italian via L.A. (i.e., Zabriskie Point) sort of way. :p
i wore them with a tan and a tank top and they were great,
but not nearly as comfortable as those Y's ones surely are.

I'm a baggy pants kind of girl these days.

well---those do sound most entertaining......

speaking of great baggy pants...

another from the YY Regulation line...
i like the drawstring so you can wear them high or low...
so you can adjust the length...
and the buttons at the bottom ...
woohoo...
*i even think the tag works ...

the back pockets are also particularly good...
remind me of that YY collection with the big pockets...
whatever year that was- i don't remember...
but it's one of my faves ever...
along with the houndstooth collection...
...

Yohji---are you listening?
more houndstooth, please!!!
i want some double pleated, cuffed houndstooth wool trousers...
please!!!

......

the Y's jean is harem/drop crotch type of pants. of course you could wear them as "high waisted cropped jean".
but the most stable place on which they stay might be hips.

^ that is exactly the length i was envisioning for my new cdg pants.
love them!

SO voluminous though, right? especially with the pockets...

yep- i'm sure your new trousers would look excellent at around this length...
and worn in this way...

the bigger the better for me right now...

i love volume...
i have certain rules about how to wear it that really work for me so i really enjoy it...


*it's hard to see, but these pants have little buttons at the bottom so you can pull them in a bit at the ankle which is one of the reasons that i think they are so great...
it's also beautiful crisp cotton summer fabric- (i saw the jacket in the same fabric)

of course- i haven't seen them in person, so it may be like the jeans where they are styled really well but then i don't like them so much after all...
but this is the item i've had my eye on since the runway show...
:p

my biggest concern would be if they are too long, shortening would involve replacing those buttons i love so much...
not impossible though...

^I hope you get to try them...I always had the impression you didn't like wide pants,
but I think these are great. Moving the button up would be no big deal, I suspect.

Look at this...
