The secondhand clothing store DEPT opened in San Francisco in the 1980s and was a leader in the Japanese street scene and culture.
This shop eventually closed in 2011. However, it made its revival with a location on the first floor of River Side BOUTIQUE in April of 2015.
Eri from mother works as the shop director and she personally selects each individual item from vintage items to originally designed and remade items.
We recommend the 38～42inch Super Size Denim. The shop offers original styles such as tightly fastening purposely large denim pants with a 1990s style clear belt and rolling the hems up high.
This shop is for the younger generation who do not know of DEPT in addition to the ardent DEPT fans who used to crowd the store when it was open.
