Going to Tokyo/Osaka for NYE

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Any general advice or suggested stores I should hit up?
From what I hear, everything is ridiculously expensive (that probably means I should put a hold on all shopping until my trip ).

In Osaka suggest:

-United Arrows - www.united-arrows.jp
-Figo - www.figo.co.jp
-Strasburgo - www.strasburgo.co.jp
-Beams - www.beams.co.jp
-Tomorrowland - www.tomorrowland.co.jp
-Hankyu Men's - http://www.hankyu-dept.co.jp/honten/hankyu-mens

Also, check to see if Daimaru Men's is open by then (supposed to be similar to Hankyu Men's).

Have not been to Tokyo for many years, but hear that United Arrrows/Sovereign House has a nice selection.

Nice little store with a good selection. But good luck finding anything larger than a US36.

I'm a 38s/9.5. Not a giant of a man by Western (or any) standards. So i'm optimistic.

Exactly. I'm 5 foot 10 and not even close to being hefty but I found sizing a real problem. Spanked my hard-earned on accessories instead

I am 5'9" and a 36r, and I was a LARGE at Comme Ca in Shinjuku. Wanna bring me back some raw sake and Japanese whiskey? Oh, and cartons of Seven Star cigarettes? $20 a carton at the duty-free shop on your way home.

Also, make sure to check out Harajuku for teh ladiez! They dress up like every Japanese stereotype you could imagine, wrapped into one.

Purchase a Kirin Strong 7 from 7/11 and drink it in the streets for me!

In Japan now.

I suggest checking out Roppongi Hills. Was there yesterday they have the usual United Arrows plus some other interesting Jap designers.

Also, Burberry Black Label in Ginza maybe?
