Kamakura Shirts took a big risk when it opened a shop on Madison Avenue in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. After all, no one had ever heard of them. But it was the dream of owner Yoshio Sadasue, who was one of the early pioneers of Ivy in Japan. Now Kamakura is celebrating its seven-year anniversary with a party later this month and a new promo video. Shot on a hot summer day (hence my going sans cravat), there are a few remarks by myself.
Congratulations, Kamakura. May you have many more years, and may there always be smart and prudent men who value quality at a fair price. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
