Reviews for The Darkside Initiative

over a year ago

Darkside Initiative's small North Beach digs are packed to the gills with t-shirts, denim, hats, and shoes from top underground labels. – On an inconspicuous block of Powell Street in North Beach, Darkside Initiative (formerly Recon until its revamp and rename in 2008) is stocked, steel-grated floors to whitewash ceilings, with street-inspired wares by international designers. A full wall of retro Nikes (think neon Dunks and Air Force Ones) is the store's main attraction, but the small selection of shirts, hats, and outerwear round out Darkside's collection. As the only store outside of Japan that sells the Web-phenom Hide & Seek label, Darkside has made a name for itself by offering lesser-known brands well matched to San Francisco's savvy but subtle style . Other top sellers include mesh-back hats by WTap, technical outerwear by Acronym, and Darkside Initiative's own line of tiger-logo T-shirts. An because it's impossible to own too many pairs of Chuck Taylors, they've also started selling a small selection of classic Converse.
