It’s lucky the name is stencilled over the main entrance, otherwise you might mistake the unassuming brickwork exterior of this Shibuya store for a storage unit. Inside, however, lies a treasure trove of old-school Japanese pieces; look hard enough and you might even find dead stock sportswear and trainers. Boy – which counts local fashion beacon Fake Tokyo and Shimokitazawa used clothing shop Haight & Ashbury as siblings – opened in 2009, and mainly sells vintage items made by Japanese brands that have a connection with music. The shop stocks menswear and womenswear in equal measure, and there’s a mix of styles that will appeal to all ages. It’s cheap, too, with tops starting at just ¥2,000.
