Yeah, I remember Kamakazi. Walked in there twice and didn't really see much I liked, they totally gave off the wrong vibe too. They LOOKED more expensive than they actually were, deterring students I think. I don't even know what type of store could open in Kingston and do okay... I feel like the only way a good store could survive would be if like 75% of it was hipster shit and 25% of it was decent. Can't believe shitty blueprint is still around stocking their XL Fred Perry shit, Diesel, and Jack & Jones.

I hope it's actually opening soon. I think it's been a few years they've said they're going to be re-opening. I can't find anything online about them opening today which is odd, since I thought there would be a few posts about it somewhere. Unless the guy at customer service just threw another projected date at me.

I've been to Toronto a few times and I'd say our women here are far better too. French/Euro girls <3

I am so thankful for Montreal as Ottawa is a dead town with shitty stores. Not looking forward to the winter. Might get some of that cdw that jet pushes.

In the immortal words of Borat, "you will never get this."

I'm actually going to uniqlo in a couple weeks, might pick up one of their crew neck sweaters if it's nice

I had a similar experience, did buy some themaltech basics though and some cords but I definitely think its over-hyped and wouldnt care if it actually opened in Canada or not.

Although the +J stuff that I saw wasnt too bad, just nothing in my size when I visited.

I've only been in TO for a few years but most people that I've meet that are from here are kinda boring, and did I mention that I hate canadian retail on designer shit, makes me miss socal even more.

I'd be shocked if it happened. Look how long it took us to get an H&M.

it would have to be something like that 75/25 split. maybe a shop could stay afloat by selling tons of nudies and still stock some decent stuff on the side. just can't see a lot of queen's kids throwing down for ro, etc.

We could use one in the States, as well. There's one in New York but I could see one doing well in San Francisco or Chicago.
