This small, East Village shop sells a hodgepodge of original clothes and vintage items. For better or worse, it's often difficult to tell what's vintage and what's new—a shirt with what, at first glance, appears to be a worn Ramones logo actually carries one for the Harlem-based hip-hop collective the Diplomats, and seemingly used flasks are etched in antiquated fonts with expressions like “Get Bent” and “Hangover.” Other items sold include leather jackets, hoodies, knit hats, Vane x Sebago boots, cigarette cases, sunglasses, and vinyl records (purportedly from the late D.J. AM's record collection). The bit-of-everything feel extends to the store's décor, which has a general-store theme and features several wooden ducks, hand-painted signs, a giant faded America flag, and an old medical school poster of a skeleton.
