I'm going up to Boston tonight (until Saturday), and I was wondering what Streetwear stores are worth going to? I'm especially looking for stores that carry cool sneakers (Y-3, Puma 96 hours / Puma McQueen, etc...).

I know its short notice but any info would be great (Fok...?).

Thanks!

Jon.

Yeah, seriously. Where is a good place to go to get dry selvage denim too? I need to try some of this stuff on before ordering any of it.

Most of the good stuff is on Newbury Street.

Alan Bilzerian for the most interesting stuff - Yamamoto, Y3 (including the sneakers), Margiela, Carpe Diem, LMatieri, Comme des Garcons, random stuff. AFAIK, they have the McQueen Pumas as well

Stels has Springcourts and NDC shoes only, but has YMC, United Bamboo (really interesting stuff, I really like the jackets), lots of Rogues and APC, Nom de Guerre, 16sur20 and Troglodyte Homunculus. Oh, and a very interesting Italian brand called Crosby, Hallen and something else... Tell them Fok sent you.

Louis has had some interesting sneakers in the past. Not sure what they have now.

Barneys has Varvatos Converse, and maybe the Puma 96 Hours, but also plenty of jeans, and anything for Ann Demeulemeester to Jil Sander to Trovata. Not sure when or if sales have started already. The Saks and Neimans are wastelands last time I looked.

Bodega is strictly streetwear (as in dudes with flat brimmed caps and Nikes out the yinyang), as is Laced and Concepts in the Tannery in Harvard Square. Service is spotty.

When I personally shop local, its Stels, Barneys (during sales,) Alan, in that order. I occasionally pick up some Engineered Garments from Drinkwaters too. Louis I browse, but their buying is not stellar.
