The Best Mexico City Vintage and Sustainable Clothing Stores
I’m glad you stumbled on this article because that may mean you have plans to go to Mexico City soon. Not the case? I hope this post helps do some convincing.
Because Mexico City really is as great as that person from high school said it was on Facebook. See the National Museum of Anthropology. Eat the street food (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…and snack… and one more snack). Run down Paseo de la Reforma on a Sunday. And check out some or all of the secondhand and sustainable picks below.
All shops can be easily accessed via this Mexico City Good Finds Google Maps List to use on your upcoming Mexico City vacation.
I found my dream world —an old apartment building in the center of Condesa, each room themed and filled with vintage, luxury clothing and accessories. The store is owned by Olympia de la Macorra who travels the world to collect rare pieces for her customers.
And the curation of these pieces makes it more of a museum than store. Check out the Coco Chanel room, the Mick Jagger room, and more. Find vintage pieces from Chanel, Miu Miu, Hérmes, Balmain, Saint Laurent, Gucci, and Prada.

Goodbye Folk Boutique
Goodbye Folk boutique specializes in vintage clothing and custom-made shoes. Not headed to Mexico City anytime soon? Good news! You can send your measurements (how do I measure my foot?) and the colors and shoe fabrics you want to them directly and they will ship internationally.
Vintage includes velvet shawls, printed blouses, Hawaiian shirts, 70s shearling coats, flannels, and more.

Roma Quince Concept Store
If you want to shop for clothing and home goods in a Porfirian-era mansion, above a fancy restaurant, head to Roma Quince. Climb the stairs at the left of the restaurant to find top Mexico brands and designers.
Designers and brands include Ocelote, which puts an edge on wardrobe essentials, blending comfortability, avant-guarde design, and high quality materials. I left with a shirt and a neoprene jacket I now wear 3x a week in San Francisco. There’s also Mexico designer Ricardo Seco who uses bright textiles and highlights his native Mexico on each piece.
And I couldn’t leave without checking out sustainable and ethical Mexico star Alejandra RAW Project. The brand uses older techniques such as pedal looms, hand weaving, and antique textiles.
Price: $$ - $$$
Hours: Daily 11am - 8pm, Sunday 11am - 5pm

This Mexican design cooperative offers 100% handmade and fair trade Mexican textile items like tablecloths, dresses, purses, jewelry, and my favorite—the quechquemitl, a poncho or shawl-like garmet.

Fábrica Social’s objective is is to support indigenous craftswomen to have fixed and stable income through fair trade of the products they make.

Vintage Hoe (still a bit confused on the name…) brings a mix of local Mexican clothing with international secondhand items from shoes, bags, blouses, jewelry, and jeans.
It’s the perfect stop to find a secondhand Phillip Lim shirt for you and a woven bag to bring home to your boss. (I’m sorry boss… I didn’t bring back anything...)

LOOSE BLUES is worth the visit to see the curation of restored and new of clothing, accessories, vinyls, and art.
