Skaters, street punks and dudes with a penchant for erudition get their fashion (and literary) fix at this Fairfax Village newcomer. – Owned and operated by purveyor of street fashion Freshjive, this dual-purpose clothing shop pays homage to the neighborhood with its casual, sporty streetwear--and appeals to literary aficianados with its well-culled selection of vintage books and rare editions. Swathed in subdued tones and plush chocolate-colored carpet, the surprisingly urbane space is a study in contrasts: Ear-thumping punk rock ricochets off the beige-colored walls and plasma TV while neatly piled rows of '80s surf-inspired brands like Los Angeles-based GONZ! line the low-lying display blocks. About half the space is devoted to books; the store's ostensible cash register is a slick office desk replete with two retro-modern chairs.
Hits: The casual-deluxe vibe of the store is alluring and comfortable, and the sales staff is informed, if not a little cool-kid cliquish.
Misses: With nary a free lot in sight, parking in this neighborhood is notoriously difficult.
