For my money, the best value Japanese denim, by far, is Japan Blue, which is made in the same factory as Momotaro. You can get them at Corlection in Melbourne...
I've heard good things about Trunk Tailors...
Sounds like the Jingumae 6-chome branch of Trading Post, which is on a nondescript stretch of Meiji Dori, nearish to where it forks off into 'Cat Street'.Some of the better TP stores (Ginza, Kitaaoyama) carry Carmina, C&J and a few Italian brands. But, seem to remember that this one is mostly house label.It was still there last time I was in Tokyo in January, and according to Google Maps, it still is...

They are on the 109 last which is quite sleek and curvaceous with a generous fit but a defined waist, vaguely reminiscent of the...
Not sure about the suits (Canali appears credible) but the ties are predominately Bulgari, with the odd Hermes...
Interesting read. Also, the use of Wordpress is quaint, to say the least...
Tesla's Queensland manager lives in my building. So if any Brissie members want a test drive...
