After attaining a certain level of success, people like to get a second home: in NY it's often a huge house in the Hamptons, unless you're Bernie Madoff, and it's just the "big" one. For a streetwear store also getting a second spot on the beach, hit up Simon's
After becoming one of South Fla's most important sneakerhead meccas over the past 20 years with their Carol City location, Simon's finally scored some primo real estate; the shop's the first new business in the swath of revamped space across from the Sagamore, and uses an industrial vibe to house gear from the worlds of both urban and skate culture, but thankfully not the Johnny Weir kind, 'cause frankly, that's all over the place already. Tees include the Space Invader-ish Kwpticon from Miskha, vibrant 10 Deep stuff with big brass knuckle across the chest, and a rebellious line featuring wise-ass T&A stuff (a scrawny little DJ kid spinning tunes, but the deck's a naked blond) from a company called T.I.T.S., or Two In The Shirt, meaning these guys are all about singles. As for non-tees, there're nautical-ish polos and plaid short sleeve buttondowns with jersey-cotton collars from Cavi; neon-black lumberjack-like plaids (plus denim & cords) from KR3W; more plaid from Rocksmith; and rugbys with cool epaulettes by Live Mechanics, who're as easy to get help from on short notice as the dead ones
For up top, they've got 9 Five wayfarers and a wall of crisp New Era caps that the manager has customized to match the colorways of new shoes coming in, including Nike, Adidas, Supra, Asics, etc, but also smaller lines like Jordans-aping Gourmet, Robin's Jean, and Greedy Genius -- which Bernie thought he was, until he learned about his cellmate's appetites.
