TYT Aoyama Boutique has a shelf full of Il Micio samples to gawk at, btw. Free of charge. smile.gif

The shoecare section is massive. It goes all the way back to the elevators.

AppleMark
Shoe polishes and brushes. Saphir (blue and black), Colonil, Kiwi, Woly, Lexol, Boot Black, M.Mowbray, Columbus etc...

Hi NC,

Apologies for quoting an old post but may I know if Tokyu Hands stocks the Cordovan creme series from Saphir as well?
May I know how much do these saphir products sell for on average?

Thanks again for providing us all these interesting information from Japan icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Ugh I remember Tokyu Hands. I bought a great knife there a few years ago. Still by far my favorite.

 

Can't have been more than $80 at the time, but still cuts far better than some of the $200 plus ones Ive tried from William Sonoma.

Btw, I am heading to Tokyo in early March. Beside the Menswear Dept in Isetan, Ginza, TOMORROWLAND, Beams, Tokyu Hands...where else should I visit (for clothing and shoes)? I will be there for 3 nights only.

United Arrows and Estnation also have wide selection of men's wear. (There are quite similiar to BEAMS and Tomorrowland, though.)

These stores have outlets throughout Tokyo, but in my opinion around Tokyo Station (also called Marunouchi) in the Shin-Marunouchi Tower and Marunouchi Tower you will most likely find these stores without getting lost and at one place if you don't have that much time. 

 

Also there is a  Barney's New York outlet in Ginza.

Mitsukoshi and Matsuya, two of the most famous Japanese department stores, in Giza also offer a broad selction.

Great info! plus 1 on Marunouchi / Ginza area. Sovereign House, Strasburgo, are also great places for classic menswear in Marunouchi. At Ginza, you can also find World Footwear Gallery, Guild of Crafts (for MTO), BEAMS Ginza (equally good as the one in Marunouchi) and Trading Post, aside from the usual suspects of European brand boutiques.

If you also want to check out more fashion-oriented but very high quality menswear in that area, I would take a look at the Hankyu Men's Department Store, also in Ginza, a very short walk from the Yurakucho JR Yamanote line station. It's fascinating even if you don't want to buy Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto et al., and they also have some very good CM shops, inc. MTM / bespoke stuff and an alterations tailors.
