Neighborhoods: Downtown, SoHo
Too small – A very small store, with not much to offer, but if you're really into street clothing I think you'll find something here. Anyway it's on a good spot, so you may just visit it while you're in Soho.
Hip-hop homies mix it up with Soho's fashion-hungry. – The Scene
This is the independent-label version of Stussy, still in touch with the street and even flaunting a social conscience. Jazzy hip-hop beats float above shoppers' heads, and T-shirts note everything from "Planet of the Apes" to Amadou Diallo. Old-schoolers and fashionistas alike will appreciate the roomy (but not club-kid huge) jeans and cords, not to mention the outerwear, some of which flirts with Members Only geekdom but somehow comes off as cool.
Where else can you find terry wrist bands jumbled with technochic silver watches that harken back to the early days of calculators? On a lucky day you might find the camouflage tape used by hunters to wrap their rifles, perfect for making city bicycles look tough.
Wroth a look, Good stuff – Union offers retro clothing seekers extremely rare finds that basically just don't exist anywhere else. It's worth stopping into just because of that fact. It's a little small, and the guy who works there is usually only concerned with the tracks he's playin on his laptop, but the vintage selection is phenomonal. Adidas warmup jackets and old school 'air jordan' tees. It's worth a look.
nice but expensive – The store has really cool stuff.
It looks like some people do not like the system of not being able to try T-Shirts on, but if you think about it, then you are getting very good quality products that no one has tried on.
They are expensive, but some are worth the price.
And they were crazy..... – When I walked in, the snotty guy ddn't even look up from his paper. I spent about 20 min. choosing what I wanted and then asked if I could try them on, afterall there is a dressing room. Now, please keep in mind - these tees aren't cheap. One was $47 and that was 25% off of the original price. The snotty guy proceeds to tell me that "we do not alow you to try on t shirts, you can try on anything else though'. The store is 97% t shirts! I put everything down on the counter and walked out. He said in his foreign accent "Is that how you do?' I found it obsence that they expect someoe to pay close to $50 for a FINAL sale t shirt, but not allow them to try it on ! I will never return !
B-Boy Flavor – Skate/B-Boy style with a touch of fashion. Good place to pick up cool, original t-shirts and jackets from Brit favorites like Duffer.
