Great Tokyo shops for used clothing

A list of great shops for used clothing in Tokyo

Kjeld Duits: @Avery Brooks: None of the above shops, nor any that I personally know, carry clothes from the 1940s/50s. Used clothes in these shops are at the very oldest from the 1970s, but usually far more recent.
Avery Brooks: What prices should one expect for 40’s/50’s mens pants, suits, hats, ties shoes in Tokyo vintage (used) clothing shops? I collect and may be there in several months on other business.
Kjeld Duits: @AZ: Sorry that I wasn’t much help. Enjoy your visits to Koenji, Nakano Broadway, Musashino and Kichijoj!

Japan Fashion Week

Kjeld Duits: @Wolldecke: In Japan the Fashion Week is still growing in popularity. But in 2005 it started from quite a low level of awareness.
Wolldecke: I am a designer from Germany. We have been at the Berlin Fashion Week. It was nice but there were not a lot of visitors this year. How were the shows in Japan this year?
