Japan Snaps Mar’14

As always, Chef salad and Bloody Mary (x3) @ JFK

1

@ our recent frequent hangout area – Shibuya 3-chome

2

They say it’ll take some more days for full blossom…@ Nakameguro

3

AKARENGA SOUKO ( translates Red Brick Warehouse ) @ MInato-Mirai Yokohama, used to be called SHINKO-FUTOU ( SHINKO DOCK ),now open to the public, but we had to sneak in 30 years ago…..

4

Nicholai Bergmann was doing some installment….I don’t know who…

5

Nice!

6

I wanted to go this vintage Chinese Restaurant…..I happened to know this place at some blog.

7

It is located on one street behind HONMOKU Street in Yokohama.

We used to go that area often when I lived in Japan ( 30 years ago )….but I never knew this place.

8

Looks like it remain unchanged…..since 1950s when American GIs were flowing here for Korean war.

Wardrobe for travel

I was figuring out what to wear during next Japan trip.

As always, I have to test how season’s new stuff perform as well….

.s1

BDU jacket in End-On-End shirting, Olive.

I guess it would be warm enough overthere….

s2

CRUZER 6-W in fine broadcloth shirting w-ply, Stone.

I wanted to wear this one….

s3

CRUZER 6 in iridescent French twill.

I especially like this fabric….really feels light and supple…due to its

poly/cotton composition. Great for trip as well.

s4

E-Z Rider FW’14 sample in Supreme twill, Navy.

I am still checking its fit for upcoming production.

I want to wear as much possible before final adjustment….

s5

Engineers’ Jacket in Japanese Indigo swirl fabric.

s6

Engineers’ Jacket in Indigo canvas.

s7

Engineers’ Jacket in New 7oz. denim.

Maybe too much Navy ‘n Indigo….

s8

Royal Traveler in fine broadcloth, Olive.

s9

Royal Traveler in fine broadcloth, Stone.

s10

Royal Traveler in Japanese Indigo swirl.

s11

Royal Traveler in Indigo canvas.

Well, that’s too many already….

Let’s see what I will actually bring and test…..( Takeshi )

P.S.

They changed street lights to LED on that (37th bet. 6&B’way ) street sometime ago.

Now I kind of like it…..it looks like they are always filming something overthere…
