Looking for "the clothing that is ginza" looking good on first-class adult Finding Ginza Attire for First-Class Adults
Ginza Six Editors Vol.29
In Ginza, expression called "the clothing" comes than the word fashion nicely. Town where first-class people gather, and first-class things gather thinks that they look good with words to express regular clothes that there is dignity. Therefore it is not suit, but so-called business-like it for the clothing that is fine weather of Ginza, and wearing with play is slightly perfect. In our magazine "MEN' S EX," we suggest that we season the clothing that is & fine weather properly on holiday with some play with suit and shoes, accessory. To look for the clothing to let feel room of such an adult, GINZA SIX aimlessly.
At first "ringujakettomaisuta" where it is good to have called in our magazine and publishes suit in. It is ability group that OEM of many brands and famous Shops deals with by factory origin of Osaka born in 1954. It is evaluated abroad, is polite, making, and even Asia, Shops of New York are developed. We want you to put sleeve through this first place by all means if there are "clothes that suit is uncomfortable" and thinking person. How to see the suit certainly changes when we sense soft comfort from neck to shoulder bodily. It is such a brand.
We had you introduce the first place like Ginza. It will be very difficult to wear such a beige suit for business, but wants you to imagine when you wear in town full let alone Ginza on holiday. Is it not really smart? We kill, and, as for the pattern (model), handsewn of collar (we finish plane cloth by iron work three-dimensionally) and armhole accelerates soft comfort and upper feel of a material "No.271H" of "RING JACKET MEISTER 206" which is first-class line series.
After all "flag of collar" is splendid when we try on. We stick to neck. Suit which is not size is outrageous, but it often occurs that collar falls out when ready-made suit of firm comfort works (there is gap between shirt). There is no such worry here.
Pattern (model) is in the shop six kinds, and chest prepares model that big I fall into suddenly from shoulder. By the way, stripe suit which I wore on that day is made of RING JACKET.
To look for tie which is indispensable to suit-style when wakuwaku of search for good thing increases; to "DRAKES." It is the shop here that it was for celebrity as a little tie and factory brand of shirt left in the U.K. in Asian first to go out shop.
Fabric of "grenadine" which is light in mesh-like fabric such as knit Thailand "50 ounces of royal twills" that gashi and thick cloth which did are powerful "super rep" letting depth feel in stripe print with cloth with big furrow and three kinds is celebrity particularly. Colored pattern expression to balance chaste refinement well when gorgeous likes splendid point personally.
We select wide end width, length, interlining from cloth for past Archive alone in Japan and, in here Ginza store, seem to be able to order somehow or other. In fact, in Thailand sold in Japan, there are many things set to length that we put together to average neck size of Japanese regardless of abroad domestic brand. In one where neck is thin and the big one, length remains all the more, and you lack, and may you not be in trouble? Trouble of such a size solves order, too. We check hardness and wide end width of interlining while looking at sample like photograph.
We love tie and buy immediately somehow though we do not know whether you wind up print that you liked. Though casual style was basic for "Begin" which was former work chief editor term in office, there were buying Thailand a little over 40 which we collected in more than four years (we counted at the future of coverage). Of course while there is a lot of Thailand not to surround and reflects when we overbought a little. But while we examine order as we liked this vintage-like print very much.
We assume such DRAKES shop-in-shop and, in "yellowtail tissue maids handling many British brands from clothes to accessory," look for basics of suit-style, U.K. shoes. "JOSEPH CHEANEY" to treat here is skilled brand founded in Northampton in 1886. It is letter of personal order service "1 of 1" to have been fascinated while being charmed by beauty of Imperial collection of high-grade line.
It is characteristic of the shop that establish personal order permanently alone in Japan. We can select color of upper and can make combination every parts about full brogue and semi-brogue, and it is said that specialite de la maison box is accompanied by care kit including shoe tree more and puts own name in the inside small window of shoes.
Besides, that, in 6 models that we can order, we can order to plane cane of 2 eyelets without development and straight tip of outside feather with ready-made article! We can enter, and the excellent front is too glad of attached kit, special feeling only by personal order including attributive model. It will be service that is ideal for adult whom we want to season with play in spite of being authentic linkage.
By the way, weather forecast on the day of the coverage is snowy. We wore double Monk shoes "William" of para-boots that mountain climbing shoes were the origins for the measures. In addition, we visit "Para boots Ginza shop" which is four pairs, favorite shoes brand owning five pairs in total last.
It is Ginza store-limited model of extreme popularity model "beautifulness board" to have discovered. Model who model eliminated green brand tab, and changed the noruveijan manufacturing method to the Goodyear welt manufacturing method, and was conscious of a feeling of dress. Crimp leather uppercut of light brown with texture that was soft like buff was the finish that flavor, "it was like that and is sasuga French brand" was deep.
"ginzashikkusu-limited" item which lets flavor feel to be dressed which there was in all shops which we visited this time. Special dish to be excited about looking good on the clothing of ginza was more possible, and other Shops wanted to peep out, too.

Attire. I think the word’s a perfect fit for Ginza, certainly better than fashion. Attire, a word that refers to clothing of finer and more formal character, goes quite well, I think, with a district that draws together people and products of the highest quality. Formal attire for Ginza, then, is the suit, although the ideal is to dress with a slight sense of play; we’re not talking about the everyday business suit. In MEN’S EX, our magazine, we suggest incorporating a bit of whimsy in one’s more proper and formal weekend attire: in your suit, shoes, and accessories. So, then, with the goal of finding attire characterized by a relaxed and grownup sense of grace, I head to GINZA SIX and wander.
I head first to RINGJACKET MEISTER GINZA, whose suits are often featured in our magazine. Established in 1954 in an Osaka factory, the brand has a reputation for getting the job done right. It also handles contracted work for many other brands and well-known boutiques. The conscientious workmanship it’s known for is highly regarded overseas as well, and it operates stores in other parts of Asia and in New York. If you believe suits aren’t comfortable, I urge you to try putting on one of these suits. Experiencing the soft and comfortable fit from neck to shoulders will change your perceived ideas of a suit. It’s that kind of brand.
I had the store show me a suit with a distinctive Ginza air. Wearing a beige suit like this for business might be pushing it, but I want you to imagine being in Ginza on the weekend, wearing this suit amid the hustle and bustle. Quite stylish, don’t you think? The pattern is No. 201H from the RINGJACKET MEISTER 206 series, the brand’s most premier line. This collar, sewn by giving a three-dimensional finish to flat fabric through an ironing process, and hand-stitched armholes accentuate the comfortable fit and high quality.
I try it on, and the rise of the collar is certainly wonderful. It stays right on the neck. A suit that doesn’t fit is beside the point, but with ready-made suits that feel stiff, when you move, the collar sometimes lifts—a gap forms between the collar and the inner shirt. No such worries with this suit.
The GINZA SIX store offers six patterns, including models that fit me perfectly, even with my large shoulders and chest. Incidentally, the striped suit I’m wearing today is made by RINGJACKET.
With my excitement building over these quality finds, I’m now off to Drake’s, inside the British Made store, to look for neckties, an essential accessory for any suit. Drake’s is famous as one of the few remaining shirt and necktie factory brands based in the UK. This is the first Drake’s store in Asia.
Three fabrics are especially famous: The thickly ribbed fabric of Super Repp lends a sense of depth to the striped pattern; the robust 50 oz Royal Twill is made from a heavy, sturdy fabric; and the lighter Grenadine features a mesh-like weave similar to a knit tie. Personally, I also have a soft spot for the wonderful color patterns that deftly combine florid and low-key tones.
Here at the GINZA SIX store, and only here in Japan, you can select and order from the brand’s archive of fabrics of your preferred width, length, and lining. The ties sold in Japan, for brands both domestic and overseas, predominantly come in lengths matched to the average neck size of a Japanese person. If you have a somewhat slender or somewhat bulky neck, this explains why you’ve been frustrated at times by ties that are too long or too short. Buying ties by custom order resolves these concerns. As shown in the photo, you can check the stiffness of the lining and the width while looking at samples.
I don’t know why, but I love neckties. When there’s a pattern I like, I buy it immediately, even if I’m not sure I’ll ever wear it. When I was editor-in-chief at Begin magazine, my previous job, casual style was the norm. Still, in a little over four years, I collected over 40 ties. (I actually counted them later.) Some of these ties, of course, I’ve never worn, and it’s possible I’ve bought too many. But I absolutely love these vintage-like patterns, so I’m currently considering ordering one.
British Made, with Drake’s inside, carries a large number of British brands, ranging from clothing to accessories. As a basic accompaniment for any suit, I’ve been searching for British-made shoes. The footwear available here includes shoes from Joseph Cheaney, a master shoemaker established in Northampton in 1886. Enchanted as I am by the beauty of the Imperial Collection, the brand’s premium line, I nevertheless find my eyes alighting on 1 of 1, the brand’s personalized order service.
Among the store’s features is the brand’s only personalized order service offered in Japan. You can select the color of the upper; for the full brogue or semi-brogue, you can coordinate from part to part. The special box provided with the order comes with a care kit (including a shoetree)—plus, they’ll put your name in a little window on the inside of the shoe.
Six models available for order include types that aren’t ready-made by the brand: the two-eyelet plain toe and straight-tip blucher. The shoe comes bearing your name and accompanied by a care kit. The service also includes limited-edition patterns—the feeling of distinction that comes with personalized orders is a true delight. This is perhaps the perfect service for adults who like to mingle orthodoxy with a little sense of play.
Incidentally, today’s forecast calls for snow, so I’m wearing the William double monk from Paraboot, a brand with roots in mountaineering. I have four or five other pairs from the brand as well—it’s one of my favorite shoe brands. Naturally enough, I visit Paraboot GINZA next, as the end of this wander.
I discover a model available only at the GINZA SIX store, the highly popular Chambord. I find that the green brand tab has been removed, and the Norwegian method was replaced by the Goodyear welt—it’s a model aware of the requirements of dressing up. The texture is soft, like buffed leather, and the light-brown grain leather upper creates a depth of refinement that’s the hallmark of a French brand.
All the stores I visited today have GINZA SIX–only items that lend refinement to one’s attire. I’m encouraged to visit the other stores, too—I’m certain more exciting treasures await there that go perfectly with Ginza attire.
