Very few wear vintage head-to-toe with the same refinement and creativity as my friend Yo Miyamoto. Yo is a freelance journalist and blogger and takes pride in his multi-tinted and multi-textured Salvation Army looks that cost him next to nothing. If I only had the diligence to regularly scour through racks of second-hand clothing, and the courage to wear more color, my life would be more moneyed and more joyfully-hued.
vintage coat, sweater, and shirt, Comme des Garcons drop-crotch trousers, vintage Premiata shoes
Yo’s favorite date spot in NYC is a wine bar called The Immigrant in the East Village, and the last song he downloaded was Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
texture and pattern play: a bleached denim coat, a crinkled polyester sweater, and a lace-print shirt
an odd assortment of vintage rings, all in silver
an ornate vintage brass cuff
Henrik Vibskov socks and clowny-cool vintage Premiata shoes
blue, crinkled, and Miyake-esque
Many of Yo’s thrifted pieces are women’s, but I commend him for the masculinity with which he puts everything together.
just like Omotesando
Yo was recently photographed by Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist in a post entitled “Advanced Style“. See the post here.
