You might remember the store profile of Re-Up in Boston the I did a month or two ago. Well I had planned to Faces in the Crowd the man who gave me the rundown of the entire store at the time but I had my notebook jacked and never got the chance. Well now that the notebook has been returned, here you go…

Thoughts on Boston’s fashion scene: “I think it’s developing rapidly over the past few years. Love seeing the growth and interested to see where it goes from here”

Thanks to Ezra one more time for sitting down with me and make sure you check out the good folks at Re-Up next time you are in Boston.

Store Profile: Re-Up – Boston

leave a comment »

Over the last few years Boston has really grown and proven it has some worth in the fashion game. While names like Bodega, Johnny Cupcakes, and Karmaloop are the staple stores in the city there are actually quite a few lesser known stores that are doing it big as well. One of those being Re-Up.

When you walk into the doors at Re-Up you actually just end up in a dark room. But follow the few stairs down until you come to this huge MJ quote across the wall, then you are in the right place.





The store is quiet big and they carry full lines of mens & womens clothes as well as a good selection fitteds. Some random Bearbricks, skate accessories, and DVDs can also be found by the counter.


Re-Up carries the likes of Staple, Futura Laboratories, MHI by Maharishi, Diamond Supply Co., 3sixteen, Fiberops, Penfield, Mighty Healthy, Kidrobot, and more. One of the very few places in Boston where u can actually find most of those NY and Cali based brands.
So if you are ever in Boston I highly suggest you check this shop out. There are a few other good stores in the area as well.

Re-Up
1 Brighton Ave. (entrance is actually on Malvern st. on the side of 88 Market)
Allston, MA 02134
(617) 783-7387

Adventures in Boston: Valentine’s Day Weekend

with 3 comments

Back from a very nice Valentine’s Day weekend in Boston with a few random pics for you.

1st stop was out to Re-Up to talk some ish with my boy Ezra and pick up a new MHI jacket. Also a full Re-Up post coming in a day or so for the Boston heads.

Then all weekend I kept seeing some of the street art that got Obey’s Shepard Fairey arrested. I’m sure you saw it somewhere that he was taken in by the police after plastering his images all over Boston just last week. Well these are just 2 of the ones I saw. The one below was pretty cool to see driving as it’s in a huge intersection in Chinatown.

Then grabbed some amazing dim sum with the misses.

Every time I drive by this community rowing center I want to take a picture and I finally pulled over and did so. Not only is the design just beautiful, it’s in the open by itself so it looks even more epic. There is a full glass structure that holds the boats right next to it also.

Then, sadly, it was back on the road to Syracuse…..
Yea prolly not safe to take pictures while you’re driving, I know.

I’ll be back shortly with that Re-Up store profile, a Faces in the Crowd post and much more.

SwaggerDap.com baby, it’s a new beginning.
