a look at the logo: yohji's name is no where to be found, as the label feels that it can sell itself. i like that kind of swagger. (photo from

looks like very casual standard fare. my verdict: don't think i'd buy it if i was a guy. the price points are a bit high for such simple pieces - both in concept and style. i'd put my cash towards original yohji yamamoto pieces, and stick to levi's, american apparel, and gap for my staples. (thanks to for photos)

milan - the menswear shows in paris were the site of a brand new label launch: coming soon by yohji yamamoto. c.s, as i'll call it, is secondary line that makes the yamamoto aesthetic available at a lower price point. of course, that's relative as t-shirts will be retailing for 80 euros (or roughly $160) and jackets will retail for 530 euros (or roughly $1060). the collection features "staples," such as jeans, and knitwear. according to a spokesperson, the line has a "japanese dna....but european fit." all that sounds interesting, as does their advertising strategy: commercials that play like movie previews in locations across the world.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
