…….Director MICHAEL STERLING EATON’S dope video on the shop. Click the link to check out more of his work.
”This eighties-loving Lower East Side shop offers dead-stock sports apparel, collectible vinyl toys, and new streetwear. Illustrated skateboards clash with the swirly violet-paisley wallpaper, and a mixture of hip-hop and hits from eighties icons like David Bowie play overhead. Angled, built-in shelves display an array of dead-stock knit caps sporting logos for the Lakers, Knicks, Giants, Bulls, and more, as well as throwback neon JanSport fanny packs. The extensive selection of pro-sports fan clothing spans one full side of the store, including Starter jackets, T-shirts, and sweats. For those more interested in dated logos than sports, racks in the rear of the store hold vintage North Face windbreakers, plaid Ralph Lauren button-downs, Reebok gear, and Mercedes Benz, Cadillac, and FILA T-shirts. Among the wares are Kidrobot hoodies and dead-stock KangaROOS sneakers.”
