Used and vintage clothing is a recent fashion trend in Japan that is quickly gaining a foothold in the fashion community. Shops like Panama Boy on Harajuku’s Takeshita-dori have helped keep the vintage revolution going in Tokyo’s central fashion hub, but going off of the main fashion street and crowded urban areas are where you will really be able to get some vintage finds that have not been picked over during the course of the day. Get off of the JR Yamanote Line at Shibuya station and start walking past Shibuya 109 and all the clamoring fashionistas. A little ways outside of the center of Shibuya you will find a tiny nondescript shop that barely has a sign to signal you of its presence. Spray painted on the brick wall outside the store, Boy has a great selection of vintage and used clothing!
Boy has already gained a great following online which has only bolstered their notoriety for those who know where to go for great vintage options. What Boy specializes in is their vintage band tees. Whether it is the Clash, Kiss, NIN, or any other rock band, you can pick up the perfect band tee for your wardrobe. Boy does not just stock great vintage T-shirts. They also have a great stock of denim, leather, and old school kicks that will make you the envy of sneaker nerds everywhere. Boy also rotates their stock very frequently, so multiple visits are totally warranted and recommended!
If you are in the mood for some vintage finds, head over to Shibuya and see what Boy has in stock!
