I often have guy friends ask me about the state of menswear in our stores and then request that I find them particular styles. I never even attempt to meet their demands because simply put I have minimal interest in menswear. My knowledge and taste is primarily focused on womenswear (and sometimes art books).  I am a little embarrassed to admit this oversight but I usually forget about the selection of menswear when I am at the Best of the Best Sales altogether. I know there is a selection but it never appears as exciting as the clothing and accessories that come in for women. Looking through my photo archives I came across two exceptions to my tunnel vision and of course they both happen to be Japanese!
