Japanese Yahoo Auctions? Other than that, people don't really sell clothes online.

There was a brand called Tenderloin which was a collaboration project between 3 Japanese - one who lived in New York, one who lived in L.A., and one who lived in Tokyo. I don't know if the brand is still around, though.

Bape is pretty popular in Japan (Bathing Ape).

Japanese who are into fashion mostly buy imported stuff.

I never could figure out Fashion trends in Japan. I do remember a big kick about 15 years ago where the local stores would buy 2nd hand American merchandise and resell it for about 4times the cost of new product. I doubt that is still going on, but it was pretty lucrative at the time.

Umm.. it depends on what kind of store.
What kind of store do you buy clothes from?
Girly/Prep stores? Gothic? Rock? Punk?
The list goes on....!!

I only know the latest popular Japanese girly/preppy stores among Japanese teens, since I'm a preppy girl! x3
Other than that, I REALLY don't know.
Try searching on Google Japan with the kind of online clothing stores you like!
Maybe, just MAYBE you might find the kind of online clothing store that suits you!
