Going to Japan next week to study design abroad, and planning on buying some clothes while i'm there. Anyone know of any good thrift stores or places to get designer for relatively cheap? I have 2 free days in Tokyo, wanting to go to Shimokita. Mostly into tech and loosewave shit. Wanting stuff that's cheap because I'm spending most of my money on food and gifts for friends/family.

I hear you can get a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick, the official Japanese car of /fa/, for a very reasonable price there.

Book-Off is a thrift store that's all over Japan. They mainly have books, music, and games, but I the super Book-Off stores have all types of clothes. Its where I managed to get this jacket and pants for only 15 bucks

go through koenji and shimokitazawa, although you'll mostly find like vintage retro american red wing tier bullshit and milsurp. Some bloggers have done writeups on stores than sell designer stuff but again, koenji and shimokita. Check out Chicago for cheap stuff.
If you're out near Kyoto look up when flea markets are on, I picked up an old uniqlo ma-1 for $15 there

I tend to stay away from the Harajuku and Shimokitazawa ones. It seems that they are already savvy and I feel that they are overpriced.
Mitaka and Kichijoji have a some decent ones. But surprisingly I've had the best luck in GEO second hand stores. GEO is a DVD rental store but a lot of them have second hand stores called jumble stores or something like that.

If you have wide shoulders instead of getting clothes that will never fit you you better just visit Walmart or wherever you usually buy your clothes before you leave.

unless you're 5'5" and underweight, japanese clothes won't fit you.

i'm 6'2" and 220 pounds. I lived in Japan for 6 years and the only things that ever fit me was an adidas jacket and a uniglo fleece hoodie.

Osaka is very good for thrifting - tonnes and tonnes of shops along the main strip. Some of them are as or more expensive than a regular store, but there are enough of them that you'll find a jenny cheap one easy.
