Ooh, yeah! I am *so* looking forward to your article, Iris. I hope people will also submit *historical* Nipponese fashion as well.

I found this shop via the Hair Fair -- I bought the "Ghost" style, which is fun; I don't know if it is more Chinese or Japanese, though.

I'm seeing lots of familiar and unfamiliar shop names, checking them all out as we speak ^^. I'm really enthusiastic about this article so keep those recommendations coming~!
(and for note, BroGear and FORM aren't Japanese, though FORM's Zabitan Assia is a japanese enthusiast and BroGear's Broder Kubrick and Snippy Yifu... I actually first met them on Metabirds, but that's just a cool coincidence)



F.C.J shirts&jeans store!


this is japanese mens casual shop.


BettiePage Voyager's store has to be one of my all-time favorites; last time I checked, she offers at least one item that is unique to each of her three locations, so it's good to check them all out.

BP in Aoba:

BP in Osaka:

Another favorite store is Little Heaven:
