    NEW SHOPS IN NYC

    Discussion started by misteraven - Dec 15, 2004

    Looks like the BAPE shop in NYC finally opened. Haven't been there, but word is that it opened on Dec 13th with a line that went around the block. Anyhow, just passing on the info for those in NYC.

    A Bathing Ape
    91 Greene Street
    SoHo, NYC


    Likewise, another sneaker shop opened up in Wliiamsburg, Brooklyn. There's some teaser photos here: http://freshnessmag.com/content/features/files/1204/n7/

    N SEVEN
    218 North 7th ST
    Brooklyn, NY

    If anyone makes it out to either store and has a camera, post flicks.

    the bape store is whack....

    there's nothing new there that you haven't seen out on the street ...
    way over priced for some mediocre designs...and the quality is shitty....

    coolest thing is the mary-go-round the kicks are sitting on...

    didn't check the prices on the t's but the sweat shirts were $280.... and they were very thin sweat shirt fabrics...

    the all over pattern prints are fresh... but again i've seen every other company doing them with out using their logo as the repeat print...

    the N7 store is pretty tight.

    They have lots of harder to find kicks, and I gotta say for a re-seller the prices aren't as high as what i expected them to be. For example Cali Dunks were $250, and yes that's high.. but Isa and Clientle were asking $300-$350 for them when they had some.

    As far as clothing goes they had a good stock of denim, but i didn't dig through it too deep, I noticed some Chip and Pepper jeans, but i'm pretty sure they have more than that. As far as Tees, all I noticed were Aquired and Mishka tees.

    i swung by the new bape store today... i thought it was a really great looking shop. really crisp and well designed, with some nice touches. i've never been to the ones in japan, but judging from the flicks of them in wonderwall, it's probably not quite up to par with them, but close. certainly far nicer than the london shop. downstairs is all clothing and upstairs is the footsoldier shop. tons of employees, and all of them very friendly and helpful. store wasn't packed with product, but there was more stuff than i'd been expecting. prices were typical for bape - $86 tees, $180 - $240 for hoodies/sweatshirts, $200 - $280 for denim, and $180 for bapesta's (they did actually have a few large sizes including US12). most the hoodies and shirts stocked we're nyc exclusives (not a lot of color choices though). presentaion is top notch... glass cases, conveyer belt window display for shoes, security is crisp black suit by the door, etc. didn't seem like a sopt you could take photos at, but other than that it didn't have the pretentious, cooler-than-you feel i'd been imagining after reading what others had been saying. seems like soho is heating up with bape, kid robot, apple, adidas, stussy, agnes b, union, supreme, stackhouse, triple 5 soul, clientele all within a couple /stores, streets from each other.

    i've been to the london shop and the nyc one is far nicer. at least 4 times as big considering it's also two stories. the london shop is nice, but just seems like the average boutique. the shop in nyc is a lot closer to being that 'bape' experience.

    enjoy it while you can, cause the dollar has got to bounce back eventually. usually it's the other way around and we can get almost two pounds for every dollar.

    For what it's worth, IMO the Bape jeans aren't great.
