I'm just visiting, I come here a lot, usually on summer break. My parents are from Taiwan, so.

Btw, Savag3, I think I'm fucking blind. Couldn't find Bamboo. Walked WuChang like 3 times and couldn't find. Do you walk toward Herr or away from it? (I'm guessing away blushing ) Away as in toward the main Ximen area.

Yeah I guess it may have.

I went back again today lol. Found Beetle finally. A little disappointed.

So bamboo isnt there anymore?
i looked everywhere,
and i asked the locals and they said IDK so i was T_T
August 09, 2008 @ 19:46:53
bamboo was never that good to begin with.

Haha nice, for real though brizzle, I wish you were my size. The shit you were selling was smokeyface. If they were s-m, I think I would of bought all of them off of you.

Saw someone in Olympic VII + Bape tee with a Nikon cam at Ximen when I was there.

Was that anyone here?

from taichung to ximen
I hit up taichung this last week, and got to say not much for finds.
The X-large is in the Eslite Mall, and it has a good stock, but no sizes.
there's a sale at all x-large's for the change of season at goods are 30-40 percent off. all the jeans sold out on their website (contraststitch-made in japan). There's also a ectasy there with some atmos. saw the atmos white g-shock watch there and some eastpack backpacks. The eslite mall had a supermarket on b2 that had Newcastle beer for 69NT, which was a gift from god, as i can't find that beer anywhere. Breeze Center has some good beers including German beers(fitzburger), but too expensive(105NT).

As for ximen, hit up the normal shops and found some futura x stussy shirts from the destiny collection at reasonable prices and 10 percent off. that's really about it, there were some lakai shirts for skater's that i hadn't seen anywhere else, other than that stocks at apery (other than summer '08 bape shirts) and subcrew looked the same.

Zhongxiao's bape got some new summer shirts, same as apery, but different colorways remaining. Across the street there's some visvim shoes and shirts, but looked like the same ones i always saw.

Anyone spotted leather jacket all star converse? I'm waiting for the zhongxiaodunhua store to get some.

Yeah... sad day. Add to the fact that this is the last year baseball is played in the Olympics, at least for now... thank to your "Bud" Selig, baseball is gone, and also CMW couldn't play for Taiwan as a result as well.

Selling (if my sig still lists it, it's still available!): N&F Japan Heritage 32, N&F x Big John 31 and 32

i was in dunhua and ximen 2 days ago and it didnt go as well as i planed

never got to find any sneaker i wanted or in my size (size 12)smh

the only store i found good at dunhua was bape (picked up a tee from there)

and for ximen i couldent find herr or identity but i did find stage so got like 3 tees from them which was all the styles they have


i found a someone wearing lobsters walking around ximen and i asked him if he knows any good sneaker store sence this is my first time coming to taipei sence i was little he told me he was also from america

i was just wondering it that was anyone
August 18, 2008 @ 10:56:22
haaha welcome to the size 12 club
it is very hard to find the kicks u want in sz 12 here!! good luckkkk
i dunno abt stage .. i guess its good among the taiwanese street brands .. remix, outerspace, walux, overkill, skatopia, provider, revelator .. anyhow, mania, allen blue .. tho i probably like remix the most from that list
hmmm identity and herr are directly across the street from each other .. on the road with multiple movie theaters .. really easy to find in xi men

Well I guess he deserved the criticism. If he really likes the brand, he wouldn't give a shit about what I say.

BTW, I'm back in Taiwan. Brizzle and other chill people, are you guys still around?


arrived yesterday, ready to party.
August 23, 2008 @ 14:09:10
Huge update. Too lazy to list all the changes. Most importantly, the list of TW brands has been expanded and the map has been changed.

Bamboo in Ximending is now IDENTITY.

I guess the thread is pretty comprehensive again. Anybody want anything added/changed, let me know.
August 24, 2008 @ 17:09:08
Oh shit, Identity is Bamboo?

Haha, yeah, that stores pretty nice. The workers are pretty chill.

I'm back in California now, I'll probably be back next summer.

being indoors will definitely help a wee bit.
but its best to go to the nearest underground bomb shelter.

hey bro, you're currently staying in xmd?
dang, another 2.5 more wks and i'll be hitting taipei.
gotta get to phantaci and jay's restaurant Mr J for some delicious food smokeyface
can anyone tell me whether Unity (aka subcrew at XMD), still stocks those caps with a S logo on it? its the 2008 summer edition.

A relative just brought me a phantaci t-shirt. The stitching seems kinda bad on the tag. Don't have a great pic to demonstrate it though, just some I took when I first got it. Aside from that, I like the shirt a lot.
