This vintage-inspired menswear boutique touts brighter colors and slimmer cuts with an innovative nod to hip-hop nostalgia. A fully functional arcade (complete with a photo booth) doubles as the storefront and threshold to the retail space, where apparel, shoes, and accessories by a diverse array of labels like Ralph Lauren, Members Only, Cazal, and Mitchell & Ness are on display. There are also goods from Community 54’s eponymous brand, which has collaborated with streetwear labels Gumball 3000 and Starter x GoodWood. Old school knick-knacks like vintage cigars and Run-DMC dolls are some of the décor offerings; the hidden gems for sale include a Gucci ashtray and an MCM duffle bag (the German label, a standby of hip-hop couture culture). The location has also played host to parties for Soulja Boy, A$AP Rocky, and Rich Hil (the rapper son of Tommy Hilfiger) and out back, an open-air “art gallery” curated by CINIK houses a large brick wall where a new graffiti artist leaves their mark every week.
