My girlfriend and I visited the store, and I was surprised by the selection and choices. I was expecting it to be dull and grey, but I am impressed with the play of neon and bright colors. I found the ever-reliable New Balance brand where I always liked for their comfortable shoes options. I am glad that I went with my girlfriend after so much prodding from her.
Best Clothing Store (Men) - 2009
VS Social Standard
It's tough being a guy who loves clothes. Your girlfriend gives you shit about it. But what does she know about breaking in raw denim? Luckily, there is a place in Minneapolis for men with such a problem: VS Social Standard. The walls and tables are painted black to contrast with the glowing neon and pastel brightness of the clothes. Here, men can swim in custom brands like WeSC, Alife, Kid Robot, and Proof 7. If you've never heard of those brands, don't fret—think sexy bright colors and original cuts. For sneaker-heads, VS carries limited-edition New Balance, Supras, and Creative Recreation, among others. And for those who love fixed-gear-bicycles, the store can hook you up with Velocity Deep V rims, a track frame, or just rap with you about the latest Keo spin on YouTube. There's no reason to road trip to Wicker Park with this place inside our own city limits. The prices are decent, too.
You guys at CITY PAGES must be smokin crack. VS Social is known as one of the Lamest Hipster hangouts in the TC. Did you guys even stop by Status, Phenom or even Mind State Distribution? Fuck man even macys has better shit than VS. Either the person who wrote this does not live in Minneapolis/St. Paul or the article is 100% Bias.
