Not only is it a more sustainable way to shop, but you will also find that thrifting is so much more satisfying than regular shopping because you never know what gems you might unearth!

However, we learned the hard way that some thrift stores only stock scratchy old vests that no one wants. Uhm, no thanks. Check out this list of curated thrift stores throughout Malaysia instead where you are more likely to find vintage streetwear sweaters rather than someone’s grandma’s old skirt.

Okgo Store, Selangor

ok go thrift shop

Sporting the same name as the quirky American rock band, this store located on the first floor of shop lots in SS18 is a bit tricky to find so keep your eyes peeled. With unisex options, guys may find a vintage Meat Loaf shirt here while girls will dig the 90s genuine Levi’s jeans that no one else in town will be sporting.

If you are looking for sweatshirts, you will be spoilt for choice with finds such as 54th Presidential Inauguration Sweatshirt or classic Nike ones. We also totally dig the vibe here with bohemian rugs and a chill Spotify playlist.

Address: 17A 1st Floor, Jalan SS 18/1b, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor

Fujiyama Jeans & Tokyo No.18, Penang

The owner of this store is Japanese so there are some pretty unique pieces here to jazz up your look as their items are entirely imported from Japan.

The two-storey store spans two shop lots and even includes a café and a corner selling vinyl records, CDs and merchandise.

Besides designer goods including shoes (Miu Miu, Christian Louboutin), you will find more affordable items like a mini kimono pouch. It is also worth checking out their winterwear like a North Face Nylon Jacket we found for RM180. What a steal!

Address: 124-C, Jalan Burma, George Town, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang

Rebirth Inc., Johor

Hypebeats need to add this store to their ‘must-visit’ lists. You will find brands like Adidas, Zara and even Burberry here.

They have a great collection of snapbacks, and you will have a hard time choosing which vintage tees to bring home (we wanted them all!) Plus, their subsidiary store Rossie Inc. catered to the ladies is conveniently located nearby.

Address: 55 Jalan Ibrahim, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
