Second-hand clothes are usually a big no-no for most Chinese people, which is why Mega Mega Vintage is such a diamond in the rough. The grandfather of Beijing’s vintage scene, Mega remains one of the city’s best bets for a consistently good find. You might know it better as ‘Mega Mega Vintage’, from before last spring when owner Liu Ke rebranded and painted the storefront cream over its original bright red.
Rebranding aside, the goods are still the same. Liu continues to match our expectations of solid variety and top quality for
a reasonable price tag. You can
generally nab something for a couple
of hundred RMB, and there’s a strong
showing in the shoes and accessories
departments as well as clothing.
Don't miss brogues for the boys (400RMB), and girls should look no further than the silk blouses and tea dresses (99-159RMB). The clothes are all sourced from Korean, Japan and Thailand. And, rather than a whole load of junk to pad out the store, the selection is hand-picked and of genuine quality.
