When the sign says “old clothes” it’s not kidding. Along with more recent threads, they also stock mint condition t-shirts, jackets, shoes and everything else from the 80s and 90s.
Think of Desert Snow as an antique shop for clothes. Consequently the prices are a bit higher than some other vintage clothing shops in the area, but everything is so much more interesting!
In particular they do a strong line in Americana – rock t-shirts, sports team jackets, workmens overalls and even a New York Park Police sweater – along with Hawaiian shirts more obnoxious than the one your uncle wore in the 90s.
Desert Snow keeps typically Shimokitazawa hours, so don’t turn up in the morning!
