You might get more replies if you are more specific on accommodation. What is your budget? Are you talking youth hostal, Japanese or western hotel? Bic
I just looked through the Nakano Broadway and Nakano Sun Mall webpages. I didn't see any made to measure places that I recognize. Aoki may offer made to measure, but I would be surprised. For under JPY40,000, you are probably looking at F-One, Big Vision, or Yuzawaya. The fourth and ninth posts in this thread describe MTM options in Tokyo generally. http://www.styleforum.net/t/89738/bespoke-tailoring-in-tokyo Bic
F., Where in Japan do you live? If you are set on ordering online, there is no reason to limit yourself to Japanese makers. Unless your Japanese is very good, you probably would be better with one of the online shops that work in English. If you are interested in Japanese brick and mortar, post number 9 here is a good place to start: http://www.styleforum.net/t/89738/bespoke-tailoring-in-tokyo Bic
I tend to think that if you really want a matching belt, then probably only one by John Lobb will do. Other musuem calf belts will be similar in finish and color, but not the same as the leather on the John Lobb shoes. I also agree that there are plenty of belts out there that would go well with Edward Green's dark oak, Crockett & Jones' dark brown antique calf, John Lobb's dark brown museum calf, or similar shades by other shoe makers.

I wonder if the darker brown Martin Dingman Wellington would work: http://www.martindingman.com/index.php/accessories/belts/wellington.html The light brown version looks a bit like tan museum calf. Bic
Unfortunately, I have never seen their products, so I can't speak to the quality.
I live about 20 minutes away from their retail shop in Ueno. Bic
Pickett sells portfolios that are similar to the picture you posted: http://www.pickett.co.uk/shop/leather-goods/briefcases-and-folios/ Many Japanese men used to carry a "second bag." They are smaller and wider than the portfolio, but have a loop that probably would make carrying easier. Here is a link to a custom made one: http://www.herz-bag.jp/blog/oldblog/2010/05/post-114.html Bic
What would you like to know, specifically? I have had Union Works put flush toe taps on my Edward Green, John Lobb, Carmina, Crocket & Jones, and Grenson shoes. I have been very satisfied with the work they did, although they are not cheap, especially when you think about their prices in dollars. Bic
Men's Isetan in Shinjuku sent me the list of shoemakers who will be visiting in September and October. It will be a busy fall.
