Walnuts is the only multi-brand shop for men which you can find at the Togoshi Ginza Shopping Arcade—a popular destination for foodies. Well-loved by many locals and tourists, the shop is celebrating its 11th anniversary this year. The manager, Mr. Shuhei Nishikawa, is the only staff member at the store. Because of this and his friendly demeanor towards customers, he has also gained plenty of fans.
A yellow signboard with the store’s name serves as the shop’s landmark. It is located on the corner of the main street, with its entrance on the alley side.
The store mainly sells items from the brand MANIFATTURA CECCARELLI. These clothing wear have delicately detailed designs and are sewn using advanced technology. The vest (¥36,000) in the photo is of the same brand.
The upper shelf displays shoes from the long-established brand RUSSELL MOCCASIN, which originated from Wisconsin, USA back in 1898. The shop has one of the best stocks around the metro.
The shop also has branches in Ebisu (Tokyo) and Gifu Prefecture that offer selected imported items from the United States, Italy, France, and Scotland. From among these items, the shop’s best collections come from the Italian brand MANIFATTURA CECCARELLI and the American shoe brand RUSSELL MOCCASIN. The latter brand offers a variety of footwear, from deck shoes to Oxford-type shoes.
Other than these brands, the shop also offers T-shirts, socks, caps, bandanas, outerwear, and other fashionable items. Regardless of your age, you’ll find something in the store that will suit you.
Mr. Nishikawa will help you look for clothes that perfectly fit you. He will also explain to you the characteristics of each brand and how to wear them well.
The shop features a wide array of colorful items. There are a lot of accessories available here as well such as the THIS WAY Belt (¥6200), which combines different materials.
Even regular customers who used to live within the neighborhood but have moved out to another town still visit the store frequently. Make sure to be on the lookout for the shop’s outerwear and new items this autumn!
Mr. Nishikawa also makes the effort of sending his customers information regarding the store’s items via social media and his blog. He updates them on new products and uploads photos of himself wearing these items to realistically show the customers how the products fit like. His attention to detail is one of the reasons why he is trusted greatly by his customers. Women also frequent the shop to buy birthday or Christmas presents for their loved ones.
