I grew up in and around philly and have had cheesesteaks in NJ, NY, MA, Virgin Islands, etc. They aren't even preparted properly in any other area (i.e. steak isnt sliced right, rolls suck, cheese is wrong type or just plain bad).

hahaha, not going to argue with a "philly native" about philly cheesesteaks... bias will win that debate..

BUT, as for WTHN... i finally stopped through on Sunday.. met the owner(Mason).. we talked for alittle about how the streetwear scene was bigger than we expected in Philly.. dude's cool as shit. seems like a real down to earth cat.. i'll be going again in 2 weeks when they get the new Crooks in.

i suggest everyone check em out if your in Philly, it's in Old City.

I'm new to philly and I've been to a couple of sneaker spots since the past week and the only stores worth going to from what i see is afficial, WTHN, and maybe ubiq (not the gallery).

Tony Lukes blows. They opened one in the Borgota and I told tony himself that it sucked when I tried them there too.

UBIQ on Walnut just stocked up on most of Stussy's Fall Line(Tees only from what i saw). just a heads up.. they've actually got something other than LRG.
Sep 14, 2006 @ 10:29
wthn is pretty cool, good brands, but they need a window display to draw people in not a bunch of dudes playing xbox.
Sep 14, 2006 @ 12:28
yea, they do need some window display...
Sep 16, 2006 @ 07:10
Anyone know of any good spots where i'll be able to grab that upcoming Frankenstein halloween Af1 release?

and a bit more on topic, I went to WTHN a couple weeks ago, pretty cool shop, better then Ubiq imo.

I'm actually out near west chester, pa. We have a Fairmans skate shop out here which always gets a good amt. of sb dunks in. Problem is they hype the prices up right off the bat (usually $150 or so), but I guess not many people are into dunks because they usually end up falling in a week or two. Last time I was in there they had a grip of puff n stuffs & andersons for $100. Not stellar pricing, but not too bad.

NET on South st. they got some 10 deep hoodies and tees, artful, GG, creative reaction, and other aight shit.

Adidas store on South sometimes has some cool shit.

Platinum South St. carries PRPS, RM, Evisus, etc.

Premier South st. i think they are a new store they carry RM, Black Label, CLH and some other cool gear

Dr. Denim South street has 10 deep, CLH, GG sneaks and tees, Evisus

Fusion denim South street has a variety of hollywood denim like Rock & Republics, True Religions, Antik Denim, Salvage tees, Morphine, Affliction, shit like that

WTHN 3rd and church probably the best underground street store in philly i like how they dont have a window display or a store sign it looks very exclusive. very Busy Workshop-ish (or was it Footsoldier) in the early days in japan.

B.Hicks you crazy about that cheesesteak talk man. I think you take it for granted that we have the best cheesesteak because its so readily available...
