Safari is a vintage shop which has many branches with different theme in Kouenji. The third store is a select & vintage shop for adults based on Italian classic.
In the same shop where USED's consignment sales are main but also new, ALDEN, JOHN LOBB, Stile Latino and other adorable brands are in battle. Especially confident confidence will be seen that the overwhelming number of dress shoes lined up in a central shelf will not be anywhere else. In addition, there are many premium shoes that match the ceremonial clothes, the land pattern called Koenji, it seems to be actually selling well.
Despite this amount of goods, the inside of the store does not make it so cramped, but on the contrary there is even a refreshing impression. It may be that the inside of the store is bright by inserting external light to the back, arranging items that are easy to view and arranged, and so on.
Of course, not only shoes, but also everything from suits and jackets, pants, shirts to ties, socks, wallets and everything here. Because it deals with casual shirts and jeans, you can also take the Italian and dandy style in combination with stylish jackets and dress shoes.
Safari currently has 4 stores in Koenji and 1 store in Kichijoji, but the Ebisu store will also be open in March. Each store has its own features, so I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of store next time.
