This airy secondhand store is filled – but not overstuffed – with affordable garments. Unusually, the men’s section is up front, offering a choice selection of leather jackets, suit blazers (from £40), cool army coats and surprisingly, football shirts. The womenswear ranges from the ’40s-’00s, although the last two decades err on tatty. There’s a smattering of slightly dated designer clobber from Prada and Mui Mui, as well as Burberry trenches from £125 and Liberty print dresses from £30. If you’re in the area, check out the additional men’s and women’s Wow Retro branches on Mercer Street, but don’t expect to find pristine vintage; these items are well loved as opposed to lovingly preserved.
