Comme des Garçons in Tokyo and Osaka

Am travelling to Tokyo and maybe to Osaka as well in December. Wondering anyone visited CPG stores in Japan during Dec / Winter season?

Would be keen to get tees, polos etc something. Not sure during Winter would these still be available? Also from Google Reviews seems that the stores are very popular with Chinese/Korean tourists??

Appreciate any advice ! Thanks !

as far as i remember, the prices are quite similar when i went, maybe around 20-30 diff? came back to singapore to get them instead to save luggage space haha.

maybe can get some discount during new year sales if you are there

It is much cheaper there. Sg sell tshirt at $110, there sell 6,000 yen ($75-$80)

Hoodie, sg sell $280, there sell 14,000-16000 yen ($180-$200)

However stock and size are very limited. If you can get good, if you can't, just buy in sg

Ya wanted to check it out since heard buying there cheaper and likely also more design. Was in BKK recently and the tees going at 3900baht ( 170sgd), due to tax.

I see on google streetview osaka shinsabashi many people wait outside the shop jin jialat

Any other similar brands worth buying in JP?

i always chiong Porter. but i heard nowadays is considered "ah beng brand" hahahaha. going to go for other brands though for my upcoming trip

I think CDG original is about the same price, no? i thought the regular CDG PLAY series is the cheaper one? but yeah, the design and some limited JP stuff hard to get, many2 people queue up
