Tim Blanks Tour of Japan

Tim Blanks from Men.Style.Com recently did a tour of some Japan and visited some of the most popular shops and boutiques in Tokyo. Along the way, he managed stops at Number (N)ine, United Arrows, Bapexclusive, Icho (Bespoke Tailor), N.Hoolywood and Project 1/6 (Medicom Flagship Store). Some of the most interesting points we found were that although some of the stores sold different genres of clothing, we felt as though genres and classes itself didn’t really exist. The blurring of the lines in our opinion create for a much more diverse fashion sense. Check out the videos after the jump.
