The opening of our second overseas store
Kamakura Shirts opened its first New York store in October 2012, at 400 Madison Avenue.Venturing into the sacred grounds of Western menswear was a huge challenge for us, since the traditional kimono has been the heart of Japanese fashion for many years.
Nevertheless, over 7,000 style-conscious businessmen have become our patrons in just two years. We have continued to do our utmost in order to meet our customers’ desires and requests. The sharp-dressed men of Madison Avenue have adopted us as a specialty shirt store of the highest caliber and, as a result, we are now able to open our second store right here.
This could not have been achieved without the support of our customers and their discerning eye for quality. We offer our heartfelt gratitude for the support we have received so far, and continue to challenge ourselves to evolve further.
-A message from CEO Yoshio Sadasue-
In 1993, we opened a small shirt store in Kamakura, a historic city located to the south of Tokyo. Since the very beginning, everything we do has been for our customers. We have put every effort into producing shirts that are true to the expectations of “Made in Japan.” Our highly efficient business model means that we are able to offer high quality products at an affordable price. We believe that the finest quality products, together with the spirit of selfless hospitality – both seen and unseen – are paramount in bringing the greatest satisfaction to our customers.
