City Daily Photo-Used Clothes Shop in Kuching.

PB300039

This shop has been running a used clothing business since 2004.Second-hand or used clothes are mostly imported from Europe,America,Hong Kong and Japan and are then washed,ironed and sold in bulk by wholesaler or importer to retailers who then rewashed and re-iron then for sale.

This clothes are becoming increasingly popular especially the younger generation,because they are so cheap and because of the general appeal of anything western and modern.

hi...interesting post regarding the resale of clothes and a lot of washing and ironing is done in the process.

understand the appeal of the western clothes and probably the used items are less expensive and more easily purchased by young people.

thanks for sharing with us.

I love this! I buy all my clothes at second-hand stores and would probably buy your Malasian used items.

One shop I couldn't resist going in is the clothing store, unfortunately with such petite body, it's quiet difficult to find nice muslimah attire.

Assalamu'alaikum Uncle Awang

Now everywhere you can find such sales......used clothes or reject quality clothes. Over here is no different, Clothes were imported from US, Europe and China as well from Indonesia.

The prices offered are very reasonable and affordable. Its has the quality. Thats make its saleable........but how long we would be the user of 2nd hand products........aaaahh, we are poor, we not afford to buy new and branded clothes.....and having cloth to cover our is very good enough.... to many of people in the world that I have seen.......including me.

Thanks
