The title is awarded to a small percentile of businesses that have had excellent evaluations and many highly satisfactory reviews on the world’s largest word of mouth website, Yelp.
We are very glad to hear that many of our customers have had a high evaluation of our shirts and our staff’s customer service. We will continue to make high quality products, in order to show the essence of Japanese hospitality. We appreciate the continued patronage of our loyal customers.
Our first overseas store on Madison Avenue currently holds the number one ranking for men’s shirts in New York on Yelp.
Over 60 reviews received, Kamakura Shirts has scored 4.8 stars out of 5, some of which can be found here.
Best deal in dress shirts I’ve found. High quality, non-fused, made-in-japan shirts for $79 bucks each! Helpful but not pushy staff will get you sized up. Classic designs and patterns are well executed. – Greg W. 04/23/2017
TL:DR – The Allen Iverson of dress shirts because this is THE ANSWER
The amazing reviews are FOR REAL. Best $79 shirt by far and beats other higher priced shirts too. If you are looking for superb fit, amazing value, quality fabrics and above and beyond customer service – look no more. You have come to the end of your shirt-finding journey, young grasshopper…. I ended up getting shirts from their Madison branch for my wedding entourage…all 11 of them. – Jay B. 01/12/2017
