This teamed with Adidas' technical knowledge and reputation for high quality, high performance sportswear has resulted in a hybrid of the two aesthetics. With Y-3's jackets, this means athletic wear that will support you during your workout, while still looking sleek and stylish on the streets.

How To Care For Your Y-3 Jacket
Each jacket supplied by Y-3 will come with full details of the fabric for your convenience. This means that you can care for it in the best way possible and in accordance with its individual requirements.
As a general rule, we recommend the following care for all jackets purchased from Y-3:
- If your jacket becomes wet, simply pop it on a coat hanger to dry. This will ensure it retains its original shape.
- Keep your jacket in a cover and hang it in a cool, dark place.
- With the exception of general wear, try to keep your jacket stored away from direct sunlight which can sometimes cause discoloration.
- If you choose to have your jacket dry cleaned (in accordance with instructions), then ensure that all pockets are emptied and that any buttons are covered up to protect them from damage.
- Should you choose to clean the jacket yourself (for example, due to a small stain or spillage); always be sure to clean an inconspicuous area first.
- Never be tempted to clean a jacket which says ‘dry clean only’. This is due to the fact that lining can shrink if not cared for properly.
- What is my Y-3 jacket crafted from?
As you might expect from a top designer such as Yohji Yamamoto, all jackets supplied are made from only the finest cut fabrics and these will be detailed more specifically in each product description for your convenience. This, of course, ultimately means that each purchase is perfectly bespoke and perfect for you, in every sense of the word. So, whether you want something practical to keep you warm at that all-important football match or need something for that special date around town, you’ll find the right quality and fabric to suit.
