What else am I missing...we need to have an update for the Chi heads, esp since Encore and Self Conscious etc. are gone.

Succezz ALWAYS has the newest J's a couple weeks before the official drops
LRDS is probably the most well-known Chi brand...constant heat
Jugrnaut is right up there w/ LDRS, dope shop, great location, dope brand
Tha Bassment has the best staff, always welcoming, they carry dope brands too, their in-house brand isn't any thing special
St. Alfreds, great location, good staff, their brand is dope, and they carry good brands too
Uprise, only been here a couple times, some good brands, some whack brands like DGK
Akin, their brand is whack, but they carry good brands, their an official Nike carrier so they don't do early drops, good staff, multiple locations. The Nike affiliation gives it more of a corporate feel, not a true boutique feel...
RSVP is decent, some people love it. I don't collect toys, and I'm not big on rocking BBC, Bape or Original Fake, if you are, RSVP is your spot.
Belmont Army Surplus, I've only been to the location in Wicker Park, some decent stuff, some whack stuff, I'll have to check out their larger location
PHLI is the original Chicago streetwear boutique down in Hyde Park. I've been there once and I doubt I'll ever go back. There store is small and empty, the staff was whack, their brand was decent, but they only had maybe 2 different tees and 2 fitteds, they had ZERO selection...store purely living off rep and hype, a wannabe LDRS 1354
Mild Blend one of the best places to cop denim in the city, helpful staff, lots of Nudie and Naked & Famous.


I'm very rarely the suburbs, are there any can't miss joints outside of the city? Is there a boutique I'm missing?

The Chi streetwear scene isn't anything extraordinary, def not Cali or NYC. But, you're reppin' Napalm in your sig, and that dude is a clown...

I've done a couple designs for Leaders, but no, I don't work there and I'm not an owner or anything of LDRS. I rep them b/c Leaders does the best to keep Chicago Streetwear on the map.

Well you can't miss The Alley just for part of your shoppoing excursion...There are some smaller boutiques but you have to find them, hidden away in neighborhoods. I would recommend looking at the Chicago Reader online and checking out their "best of chicago 2013" lists. In the meantime, I'm looking for the best place to get tattooed in Chicago...anyone???
