This mecca for urban essentials closes January 19, 2003. – The Vibe
Just as it has been since back in the day: Canal Jean is a huge store with acres of floorspace to cover--the many stairways and op-art pink elevator help a little. You'll be squeezing through racks of gear alongside raver kids, b-boys and touristas.
Everything an urban wardrobe needs. Find Schott peacoats and leathers, regulation fatigues and long johns, sportswear lines like Triple Five Soul and 33 Degrees, Dickies workwear, a huge Levi's shop, biggies like Calvin, bags, bandanas, hats, shoes, club clothing and even a tremendous selection of vintage threads.
Been on the down slope – no wonder they couldn't afford to keep their lease and will be vacating for Bloomie's. Those in search of vintage are better off at the Salvation Army than at Canal Jeans. The selection and quality of stock has been poor for the past 10 years or so. The staff is also not the most informed about location of items and even when the store was going to close. It took a manager to find that out!
p.s. does anyone else suspect that they raised prices in order to "discount" them?
They are going out of business – They were having a going out of business sale, yet things were still highly expensive. They didn't have great bargains like I expected.
Canal Jean should be #1 – Canal is so extensive and cool. You can find all sorts of things from vintage and new trends and its the greatest most down to earth set up. Canal Jeans is New York at its best.
