That's annoying.

Thanks for the advice. At 5'7" and <140 pounds, I may find that Japan is the only country other than Italy in which I'm tempted to buy off the rack.

Tokyo is great for men's accessories. The selection of neckties, wallets and man bags, hats, pocket squares and socks is wonderful. Also, depending on your waist size, you should be able to find belts. For example, the Regal shoe shop in Ginza had shell cordovan belts in colors such as #8, whiskey, and ravello.

Thanks, Bic!

I can't even wear their ties - any way I tie them, they end up several inches above my waist.

Ugh. Well, it's good to know that before I search around and fell like in Lilliput.

Actually, I think Isetan has a big and tall section as well, although the selection is pretty limited of course.

The quality is not top of the line, but the Suit Company had a bigger and taller section on the 4th(?) floor of their Ueno/Ameyoko shop.

This is true. It is in on the 7th Floor. http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto...mens/7f_sm.jsp http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto.../foreigner.pdf They have a decent selection. Probably the biggest draw for me is there measure made and order made services. http://www.isetan.co.jp/icm2/jsp/sto...ing/ordermade/ I doubt you'll find any retail location that has order-made kiton, belvest, brioni in the same building as Japan-only lines from English labels like Timothy Everest, Richard James, and domestic high-fashion labels like N. Hoolywood, Julius, Factotum, Undercover along side Tom Ford, Dior, etc.

In 2006, I bought a pair of sterling cufflinks from Barneys Shinjuku. They were double sided, in the shape of shoes, in homage to Alden shoes.

Here are a few accessories that I found online today.

Montesquieu, don't miss the food basements in the department stores. Isetan has a very high-end food basement (there used to be a bar there for sampling single malts; not sure if it's there still). great bakeries there, great traditional Japanese sweets. Toraya (i believe) has a small cafe space in the food basement at Isetan.

also don`t forget to take your passport with you when shopping and claim the duty free. For example, at Isetan, if you go to the customer service desk, they will refund the sales tax (5%).
