During the past few years, Streetwear Sales have increased considerably, with retailers selling a wide range of clothing and accessories. While this is good news for the industry, it can also be very challenging for consumers. Here are some tips to keep in mind to get the most out of your shopping experience.
During the first week of October, Urban Outfitters began offering an “Almost Black Friday” early access sale. During the sale, customers can purchase trending items for up to 50% off, plus hundreds of previously-discounted items.
Urban Outfitters is known for its brand lines, including Free People and Anthropologie. The company also sells home goods, beauty products, and denim. Urban Outfitters focuses on young adults.
The company describes itself as a “creative and culturally aware brand” dedicated to inspiring customers. The company offers many deals throughout the year. These include a Memorial Day sale, a Labor Day sale, and a Black Friday sale. Urban Outfitters also has sporadic flash sales throughout the year. These flash sales offer huge discounts on trending items, including men’s and women’s clothing. The retailer also has a “Scan to Shop” visual search feature, which allows customers to snap a photo of an item and instantly find similar items.
Founded in 1895, Reebok is a sports fashion brand with a long history. They are known for making comfortable and durable shoes and apparel. Their latest releases are some of the best in the brand’s history. The label also puts a focus on environmental friendliness and stylish designs.
Although Reebok was a successful company, it never reached the heights of Nike or Adidas. The brand had moments of greatness and plenty of moments of disappointment. The company struggled to develop a clear identity, too. They often tried to expand into several categories at once.
Reebok’s most successful products were the ones that best met customers’ expectations. They included winter-fighting pullovers and pitch-ready shorts. The company also made a push into the fitness market. They also signed licensing deals with the NFL, NBA, and MLB.
Ps and Qs
Located in the South Street neighborhood of Philadelphia, Ps and Qs is a small, but mighty, streetwear boutique that has earned a reputation as a haven for hype beasts, Philly sneakerheads, and eco-conscious brands. Owned and operated by brothers Ky and Rick Cao, Ps and Qs is an unpretentious and unassuming establishment, yet it’s the store that makes Philly’s sneaker scene a little less lonely.
The Ps and Qs store has a great stocklist and friendly and helpful staff. They even have incense sticks, which is a nice little touch that you don’t always get. They have an aesthetically pleasing interior design, which makes for a novel experience every time you walk through their doors. Among their hottest sellers are a handful of brands, such as Norse Projects, The Hill-Side, and Penfield.
Union Los Angeles
Founded in New York in 1989, Union has become an essential part of the Los Angeles menswear scene. The store focuses on high-quality imports from Japan, Europe, and the UK, while also highlighting up-and-coming designers in the U.S. Its ‘Passport Pack’ celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Nike Cortez, and includes two pairs of Jordan 2s. It also released the ‘Future is Now’ capsule.
Union has collaborated with brands such as Undefeated, Supreme, Stussy, and Junya Watanabe. The brand has also released Jordan collabs, such as the Jordan 4s Taupe Haze. It’s a brand that prides itself on walking the line between streetwear and fashion, blending the two with ease.
Its website is easy to navigate and its checkout process is simple. Customers can pay with major credit cards, and there’s free shipping on orders over $100. Its website also features a return policy, which is great if you need to return an item.
Round Two Vintage
Founded in Virginia, Round Two is a vintage buy-sell-trade boutique that focuses on rare sneakers. It has a pop-up in New York City and plans to expand to major cities this summer.
The company’s co-founders, Luke Dawson and Luke Fracher are 25 and 23 years old, respectively. They started the company with a gut instinct. They’ve always experimented with their merchandise. Their main store is located on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. It features branded merchandise and a customer hangout area. The store also has a separate appointment-only store called The Gallery. The gallery carries the most expensive items.
The Round Two vintage empire has expanded to hip sections of several destination cities. It avoids the vintage-store mustiness, and its stock reflects regional tastes. This is what makes Round Two an antidote to the cold pretension of many retailers.
