HAIGHT IT OR LOVE IT

Haight Street has been a popular location even long before any of the “street wear” shops opened up. OG shops like TRUE and FTC have been holding it down over the years while newer ones like Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Shoe Biz, add to the already busy block. Today I decided to hit up Haight Street to check out the two new shops on the block. Our San Jose family, Cukui, made the trek up the 101 and opened up shop in the city this past Saturday while hometown Nicky Diamond opened up down the street. Both shop build outs came out clean but would you expect any less? These two shops will definitely add to the culture of Haight Street.  Congrats again to Jae, Orly and the rest of the Cukui family and to Spank, G and the rest of the Diamond SF crew.

(For anyone who is looking for our Summer D1 hats, Cukui SF, still has some in stock so hit them up!)

With this weeks “Shop Check,” lets check out the good fellas and lady (I didn’t forget about you Meesh) over at Cukui’s flagship store located in Japan Town in San Jose, CA. Ran by the Locquiao brothers, Orly and Jason, opened up shop a couple years back and have been a staple in the San Jose community ever since. The shop holds art shows and features pieces from various artists and showcases their work for a month. This month, Cukui’s very own, Orly, will be the featured artist. They are also getting ready to open up their second location on Haight Street in San Francisco, which is home to Black Scale, TRUE, FTC, Pink Dolphin and Diamond. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and check out some of his work, pick up a couple of tees and cop a hat..or three.
