The Hundreds first opened its first store a few years back and now they’re onto their second shop which open its doors in San Francisco today. Fans of the brand lined up early in the morning to pick up some exclusive store opening t-shirts as well as collaborations t-shirts by Benny Gold and the Hieroglyphics crew. Like the first shop in Los Angeles, the SF store has a dark atmosphere but this time with crazier decor. Heading in the store feels like going into a theme park ride.
