What we love…
- While at first glance Wego Harajuku seems like a giant, well merchandised American vintage store, all the clothing and accessories are actually brand spanking new. The clothes at Wego are "inspired" by the vintage look, and given finishes that make them feel perfectly worn. Yeah, these pieces don't have a history, but it solves a key problem that the Japanese had—the vintage piece you want is never in your size! At Wego there's no need to pass on that broken-in sweater, they've got a whole rack in your size.
- Unlike other vintage inspired brands, the prices at Wego are budget friendly, and since the collection consists of fashions that;Tokyo youth love, Wego is ultra popular. Perfect for throwing together that vintage inspired streetwear look on a tight budget.
- You'll find several different styles for guys and girls depending on what's hot in fashion. Each section covers a specific look pretty thoroughly, so you can make this one of your first stops to stock up on pieces so you'll fit in with the trendy Harajuku kids.
- The staff have a great sense of style, and are usually sporting some of the hottest Japanese street fashion. Got doubts about sales people actually looking cool? Check out their staff style blog, where they post photos of what they wore to work that day.
