wanderlust: used clothing stores in harajuku, tokyo


Ragtag is a secondhand designer clothing chain store. The store carries famous designer brands such as Alexander Mcqueen,Chloe, Christian Louboutin, Christian Dior, Chanel, Givenchy, Marc by Marc Jacobs to name a few catering for women, men and kids as well. According to its website, there are seven Ragtag stores around Tokyo and one rt in Ginza. During my trip, I visited the store in Harajuku. Whilst I did not notice anything vintage but on the website it stated there is a vintage section. My guess is perhaps vintage can be found in other stores?

I am saving the best (in my humble opinion) for the last - Kinji Used Clothing store. Firstly the store itself is huge. The third photo shows the first half of the store. I felt I was in the heaven of secondhand clothing. And secondly you can find vintage here, yay! Lastly, the price is very reasonable. There is a section selling used designer items; clothes, bags and shoes. I had fun rummaging each rack trying to look for 'treasures' to bring back home. I found couple of treasures for the price of JPY3024 (approximately US$27).



I think this striped vintage dress is circa 1970/80s.


Scored this lovely French Connection pleated skirt

This post concludes wanderlust posts on Tokyo. Although this is not complete listing or coverage on used clothing/secondhand or vintage stores, I hope you find these posts useful for your travel planning. I can't wait to visit Tokyo or Japan again. 

Have a wonderful weekend and stay chic!


  1. Duuuuude Kinji is my jam!

    I did a little thrifting (and drooling at architecture) around Harajuku recently but I didn't visit the first two stores you mentioned. I'm itching to go back and further explore Japan's secondhand shops!!

    Thanks for sharing!
