Mayhem: The Age of the Thrift Shop Begins in Saigon

In Vietnam, the land of cheap clothes, western-style thrift shops have yet to take off. Mayhem, a new shop located just behind Ben Thanh Market is looking to change this, offering up stylish, imported used clothing from Japan.

We could try describe them but they do a pretty good job of that on their own:

"No, we don’t simply sell clothes in here. We are a cartel, a small squad who just come to deliver what your soul really needs. We got the crack to get you fly as hell walking the streets of Saigon. They call us hipsters, misfits, weirdos, fashion freak… What do they mean anyway? We got the DeLorean to take you where true party is. Mayhem Saigon is where you can find the missing piece of puzzle of your closet.

We supply used clothing (and sometimes vintage) from mostly Japan and bit of everywhere else. What you getting are some unique, original clothes that no one else could match, not the fake China epidemic spreading everywhere in town.

Welcome to the Force."

Thanks to Saigon Shakers for the heads up!
