Ditto this for Nike swag.

You forgot the broest of bro-bars; Blitz.
I gotta call out the following shops: Manifesto, and the (3) in a row (Tanner, ....).
Walked in every one of these stores and didn't get so much as a look in my direction. No "Hello!", "Can I help you?", nothing. In one store, the employee didn't even look up from their computer they were seated at. Fucking ridiculous for smaller boutiques to treat people like that. It made me uncomfortable to feel like I was being observed with disdain under eerie silence while I scoped out goods, and only encouraged me to continue shopping online.
The best shop, by far, for me, was the Filson store. Good luck walking out of there empty handed or at least without a mental wish list.
