It’s poll time once again at Kfashionista! Last time featured a Balmain battle between TVXQ‘s Changmin and Jun-hyung of Beast, which Changmin won resoundingly. This time we’ll pit the remaining member of TVXQ, U-Know Yunho, against Big Bang‘s maknae, Seungri. Both men have recently been spotted wearing the same red check moto blazer from Comme des Garçons ($1,840). The jacket is from the Japanese label’s Homme Plus Spring/Summer 2012 runway collection.
Of the two, Seungri wore the item first, on multiple occasions. When Big Bang’s “Fantastic Baby” won on the March 15 episode of Mnet’s M Countdown, he was wearing this jacket when the group accepted their award and performed an encore of their hit K-pop song. Seungri lets the blazer be the focal point of his outfit, keeping the rest of the ensemble simple; a black tee, pants and boots complete the look. The pants do features some spikes down the seams and he also rocks a pretty major Chrome Hearts belt, but considering some of their stage looks for this comeback, it is pretty tame. Later, he was seen in the exact same getup when SBS’s Strong Heart aired the YG Family Special at the beginning of April.
Yunho opted to make this piece part of his airport fashion on a recent trip to Thailand, where TVXQ took part in the 2012 MBC Korean Music Wave K-pop concert in Bangkok. Strutting through the terminal like he owns the place, Yunho paired the jacket with a graphic tee, black pants and sneakers. He also has the airport fashion staples of a backpack and over-sized, dark shades. It is a perfect example of how the understated stage style can easily transition to a chic casual one.
Which one wore it better, Seungri or Yunho?
