It is great for achieving business, business casual, or a casual business look with Japanese styled suits. bref also sells handbags and watches to go along with the look. The atmosphere is like a tailor’s shop with fabric and buttons on display. The suits and accessories are perfect for a customizable sleek and modern look to suit your individual style.
These are just some of the many stores located in Shibuya 109 MENS shopping mall, so when visiting, feel free to browse others along with the stores listed.
