i guess if u from the nyc area like me, going to a place like that with less is different.
Originally posted by Inactive Userna, other than in the new WTHN.. UBIQ used to carry stussy, hundred, 10 deep.. but it didnt sell to much(i think i was the only one buying it) so they stopped restocking it.
an NYC native'll probably hate Philly. it's like a small, humble NYC. there's some good sneaker spots, but all the 15 year old RocAWear & State Property rockers usually crowd it up.
Originally posted by Inactive Userim hittin up that new spot WTHN tomorrow, im hoping the selection is decent cause ubiq fell of HARD- its not even half the what it used to be i gotta say and the prices only got worse and afficial not all that hot either i gotta say thye got some nice kicks but the priceds are ludicrous
i love philly tho for kicks i dont really buy them as much as i used to but if im looking for something half rare or GR u can usually find it here without a problem
there are stil some spots that have old shit like out in the NE (josephs) but besides taht yes its a humble city, we got the best cheessteaks in the world and old city is always a good time for the bars
Originally posted by Inactive User^if you're talking about WTHN, it's def got potential. i was there saturday briefly and though they didn't have their nike accounts yet (which i hear they should soon, if not now) there was a great selection of clothes and good people.
absolutely nothing wrong with philly. yeah there's hypebeasts everywhere but that's just like anywhere else in the world. if you know the ins and outs of the city you should be able to enjoy yourself. nyc>philly>jersey

Originally posted by Inactive UserWhere's WTHN. Ya UBIQ no longer really stocks much clothing (last time I was there the second floor was entirely closed. I guess you could call Philly a smaller, humbler NY, but I think that's over simplifying it. It's a true working class city (unlike NY), the people are humble, the city in general is very affordable, and it's got the best food in the US next to NYC. But if you're from NY don't expect it to be on the same level. And whoever said it had a ton of hypebeasts, wtf?! Philly has very few people that are into the sneaker/ high-end "streetwear" market. Sure you might see a few on South St., but as a whole Philadelphians don't worry that much about $170 sneakers or $40 T-shirts, it doesn't really go with the working class mentality that defined the average Philadelphian. Plus, not to generalize too much, but the city is damn near entirely White and Black, probably less than 5-7% Asian, and Asians are often a large part of the streetwear/sneaker market (like in SF and NYC).
