I've been living in the DC metropolitan area for a bit now, an in comparison to other major cities, this area's streetwear scene is a bit lacking. Sure we have Commonwealth and Palace5 and have somewhat good brands like Spokesman and some real wack ones like swavor. Can anyone get me hip to any brands from the DMV who really what streetwear is supposed to be? A ++ if it's a female brand.

Good shit for saying "get me hip"
Check out the Stussy store though, they have girl stuff, it's at the bottom of Adams Morgan.

The thing is to many niggs here in th DMV look alike. Everyone here has dreads, Northface Steep Tech, Levis 511, and foamposites. So it's not hard to see why the streetwear scene here is pretty much non-existing.

I know, Palace5 has been slackin and Major's storefront shut down a few months ago because the stores next to it collapsed. It's been surviving off its online store and a pop-up shop here and there.

Yea the DMV has too many people who dress alike, need some new innovation. Good looks on Borgata, I've heard of them and their pocket tees.

Definitely about to follow this thread, because I've been thinking the same thing.
Hopefully FLAGSHIP will be the beginnings of a better selection out here.
Haven't been to Palace 5 in a while, but y'all making it seem like I shouldn't go back lol

I mean if you've got bread to drop, P5 isn't just P5 anymore, they split the shop in half and now there's Federal.

exactly. it's sad. there's hardly any camaraderie and there's not really an authentic culture. the skate scene, and street art scene both need to be bigger.

wow i can't believe I forgot DURKL haha yea they're dope. I feel like they've kind of lost their way in the past year. I loved their early stuff. Now they seem to do what every other brand is doing

nahhh they have dope product but they don't have a boutique/storefront. DURKL lost their original one but is moving to a new one. MAJOR recently lost their showroom too but is now at a pop-up shop next to its original location. DC boutiques need to get on their shit! lol

This shit is a fucking horrible representation of what the youth of the city look alike, but it's true. SMH
