Isn’t there a saying that goes, “There is no bad weather, only unsuitable clothing for it.”? For our Malaysian sunshine girlies, most of us probably don’t have a closet full of warm clothing as we hardly ever need it. The struggle gets real when a snow-clad trip becomes part of our travel agenda.

If you’re planning a one-off winter trip for the year and don’t want to spend a fortune on winter wear, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of places to find secondhand winter clothes at affordable prices.

OKGO is a curated thrift store in Subang Jaya, run by a husband and wife duo since 2017.

    4. Family Bundle, multiple locations

    Another good place to look for winter clothing is at a Family Bundle outlet. Like most thrift stores, they sell a variety of clothing items, but they often have a large selection of puffer and bomber jackets, parkas and winter coats, some for as low as RM5. It may take a while to look through the racks, but a good find will be well worth it. We recommend the Pudu outlet for your best chance of finding great winter wear.

    One of the top favourite thrift stores for seasoned thrifters is the JBR Bundle outlets, located across the country with the largest one in Klang.

The clothes range from more modern pieces to jackets and coats from the early 80s and 90s.

    They also have an in-house tailor who can alter the clothes as you need. On the warehouse’s second floor, you’ll find racks of faux fur-lined denim jackets, wool coats, puffer jackets, and faux fur coats.
