The Custo Barcelona shop down in Soho has the coolest, funnest clothing items to wear. I get stopped on the street all the time when I am wearing a piece. I have to say, the service and help at the store is one of the reasons I come back. The manager and staff are very helpful and make my shopping experience fun. If you haven't checked out Custo in Soho, you're missing out.

Custo might look like a place that is out of your league but the staff and, especially Matthew Banks (the manager), will make you feel right at home. I would definitely recommend going there to get that perfect outfit to express your unique style or just to feel sexy and glamorous in something new.

I adhere to Custo Barcelona's funky and vibrant clothes at home in Europe, so I was very excited to come across the store whilst out and about in SoHo! It stands out with such fantastic style & uniqueness from where fashion has become too uniform, and for very reasonable prices too. An absolute must if you love clothes with a difference!

These men's clothes are not for everyone & that's one of the reasons I like it...it all started 3 years ago when I had to get a birthday gift for our dance instructor at the gym,so I was chosen and they didn't love the Monkey t-shirt I picked out, I kept it,ever since then it's been all down hill!!!!! I usually shop at the Soho store(NYC) & Charlie,the manager is super(I shop more online now from the store in chicago)..I used to be hooked on Gaultier stuff but these clothes are much more inexpensive & more my style. Some notes: the really colored t-shirts need to be rinsed cause they will bleed if you have a white tank top underneath, once they run out of an item ,that's it.,it then it goes into being "vintage" & plz be aware of FAKES on eBay, go on to their store site & make sure they actually make it(I got burnt 3 times),also not all stores carry the same clothes.

Fabulous Clothes/Fantastic Service

I wandered in to Custo with my 15 year old daughter. We both found clothes that we fell in love with! Each piece is vibrant and unique and it was hard to decide what we liked best. The store is really a feast for the eyes. Gorgeous! The staff was so attentive and helpful - we loved it. We will be back when ever we're in town.

I always loved shopping at Custo on Broome St. But now it has become a cheesy outlet. The clothes are yesterday's models. And the service stinks. There used to be really cool salespeople. Now there was this old guy in an ugly hat who has terrible taste and was rude. What happened to the old Custo?

what happened to Brooome St?

I agree with the last comment. Custo used to be the hippest, funnest store in Soho with great salespeople. Now it's an outlet store and looks it. And the service is awful. That guy in the hat and ugly beard has the worst taste. I found the new Custo on Spring St. It's a little better but not like the old store on Broome.

Love this store! Came across it last year while I was walking around Soho. Clothes are bright, funky, soo unique. Some of my favorite tops and dresses are from here. My friends always want to know where I go shopping! My SA Chloe calls me everytime they get new stuff in and lets me know when they have a sale. Definitely recommend stopping by here.

Some Hints:

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
