Plastered 8

Top choice clothing in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

A visual celebration of Beijing in all its chaotic glory, the T-shirts, hoodies, tote bags and gifts at this iconic streetwear shop make funky and desirable gifts. The boss – a long-term British expat and Chinese TV celebrity – works with Chinese artists in various media to create his always edgy designs.

To avoid the Nanluogu Xiang crowds, there's a newer branch of Plastered 8 at Wudaoying Hutong.
