江口洋品店・江口時計店は店舗を構えて3 年ほどのショップであるが、そもそも店を始めた理由は「ヴィンテージウォッチが好きだけど、どこで購入していいかわからない、アフターメンテナンスに不安があった」というのがキッカケだった。そして「同じくヴィンテージウォッチを好む人たちに向けて、ファッションと絡めた形で時計を提案できたらいいな、と考えるようになったんです。特にカルティエの時計などですね」。ショーケースにはカルティエのヴィンテージウォッチが数多く置かれており、お店の奥では工房が設けられ、そこでリペアも行なっているそうだ。



Any people go to the Eguchi clothing store and Eguchi watch store in Kichijoji in search of vintage watches that can only be found at this store. Apparel on display here are European vintage, such as the Maison brand, Hermes, Chanel and Burberry. Inside this peaceful store there was a lineup of "real" watches and clothes that cannot be seen in the usual vintage clothing stores. We had the store manager Daisuke Eguchi make a dressed up display for J.PRESS. Eguchi clothing store and Eguchi watch store have been established for about 3 years, and the original reason behind why the store was set up in the first place is "I like vintage watches, but I did not know where to buy them and felt anxious about the aftersales service. So I started to think that I would be able to suggest watches in a form associated with fashion for people who like vintage watches as well. Especially watches like Cartier watches." There are many Cartier vintage watches displayed in the showcase, and at the back of the shop there is a workshop, so they are doing repairs there. There has been a long relationship between Mr. Eguchi and J.PRESS. "My father was always wearing American Trad, such as J. PRESS, and he dressed me like that as well since I was small", he said. Putting something quickly over the top of a T-shirt produces an elegant feel to a casual style. "Right now, the feeling of having something just the right size is relaxing and I feel that this matches the feeling of the modern era." The roots of Mr. Eguchi's fashion sense lie in biker fashion, that is, the standard look of American Casual. Mr. Eguchi's style of dressing is an extension of that and by capturing the feel of American Trad as well, his style is outstanding. "I still like classic clothes such as navy blue blazers even now, and whenever I have the opportunity I often wear a jacket as well." The viewpoint of stores that offer items for gentlemen who want to wear really good clothes and watches, and that of J.PRESS clothing may be along the same lines and communicate well.
