View Full Version : First Time Up To Bws Ny

11-25-2006, 03:00 AM
Yea so im plannin my first trip to NY to go to bws wit a few friends. From what ive heard theres a line every morning at bws, so im assuming i have to get there early. And that its a one item per person rule.

So how should this be planned out? What time is a good time to get to bws, to be able to catch some good items still on the shelfs?

(real answers please, no BS condecending crap)
(just tryin to make my first trip up a productive one)

Well drops are crazy now a days, can't really get help there maybe you'll be lucky enough to be one of those that goes a day after a big release and they have some left overs.

Lol, damn. But whats a time that i should get there to get in line? Or is this like a "camp out" type of deal???

Cause dont bws open like at 12? so wut, is there a long line at 10??

Well if a hot item is expected to release a certain date best time to get there is from 7-8am in the morning to be the first people on line. ( this way you make sure you dont get cut ).. but if you going a regular day just hoping something hot will drop, be there by like 9am-10am.. pretty good time.. imo...

If Nothing New Drops You Can Come There At Anytime Of Day.it Closes At 7 So If Nothing Drops You Can Come There At 4 Or 5 If You'd Like And Still Get A Stadium Jacket (maybe Not A Hoodie In Your Perferred Size ) Some Sneakers, Or Some Goods. But If Something Big Releases Then You Should Be There Early In The Morning Like 7 Or 8 To Get A Perfect Spot On Line.

Most weekdays are ok. Not that big of a line. Sometimes there are only a couple of guys at openning. Sometimes they drop thing in the afternoon too, so if you are still in the area, check back at like 3pm.

Do they drop that much, like almost on a daily basis or more of a weekly basis?

lines are for big drops but nowdays they drop items out of nowhere so it wouldnt hurt to show up at opening time...gotta test your luck

What happen to the raffle system?? I miss the old days where I can just show up at 11:30am and pick my luck.

11-25-2006, 05:16 PM
^^the workers say no more raffle because its not fair to those who wait in line/camp out.

lines tend to get big right before opening. If you're there by 1115/1130 you'll be fine...

11-25-2006, 10:19 PM
damn so nobody can get a conformation of whats dropped? just people outside testing their luck??

Yep and I like it. The unexpected drops and no raffle is great.

If its easy then it wouldn't be as much fun.

Look man lets say the item drops on a unexpected day someone from the forum will be there and they'll post what dropped. So what that means? wake up early to check the NY release thread. Some ppl acting its the end of the world and shit lol come on ppl its just clothes ; )
