PDA

View Full Version : My first experience in the new BBC/Ice Cream store lasted about 90 seconds

damn, that place is pretty wack

so i walk in...and hear britney spears music in the background...i'm laughin to myself

i see the "security" guy who for some reason is just standing in front of the rack of clothes...im thinkin to myself "wouldnt it be more logical to be closer to the door, instead of right in front of where the customers are trying to look at shirts"

than i'm looking at the clothes hangin up (ice cream)..and thinkin too myself..."wtf?? i just saw all these items at barneys new york like 2 days ago..why am i looking at the same clothes over again?"...so i just head to the neon stairs

so 2 nice lookin girls worked there and they were pleasant..saying "hi" and im like "whats good?"..theyre like "how u doin?"..etc..and i keep it moving

i walk up the dramatic neon light steps...and trip turning around the corner...its too dark..

i go upstairs...and see a nicely designed room about the size of my bedroom...and see a bunch of the same wack shit ive been seeing at barneys new york...those frequency jeans that nobody is checkin for, and those hats that nobody is checkin for...

i walk downstairs, watchin my step this time...and some lady bumps into me..im turnin the corner to go down, shes turnin the corner to go up...

as im walkin out the girls say bye..i say bye..and i laugh as i see those wack ass jeans with red stitching all over 'em(and 2 other colors) in like a display case, knowing damn well those are gonna be there forever...

pros: the girls are nice, the swarovski ice cream shirt in the case looks nice in the display case..
cons: britney spears music, all 15 yr old kids, the clothes, (what barneys new york has on 3 little racks in like a 4 ft. radius, this place managed to stretch out into a 2 floor store)...

moral of the story:i really have no reason to go to that store, unless something really really really hot gets released...

the atmosphere in bape is much better

I've never heard Bape NY and nice atmosphere used in the same sentence...
last time I was there, the staff were majorly douche-like, unlike the Bape stores in Japan, everyone was nice and helpful.

IMO harajuku store is better layed out, staff is cooler and the clientelle doesn't have their mothers shopping with them.

bro i dont see why you need to post this. if we had new threads about what we hated about bbc/bape there would be 10000 of pages filled with crap.

the fact that you didnt like bbc sounds like a personal problem, because i really dont think pharrell and friends are looking at this and changing there system at bbc ny. go complain about your problems somewhere else, because i dont think that people here really care. at least i dont.

yea, i agree, my gf went to bape NY n all of them didn't really wanna help(well, i always had that service since i live in miami). but the ppl at bape HK, n any of the Bape store in JP, BBC, and ice cream was extremely helpful. this one guy was takin a break like 3 blocks away from the ice cream store, n he walked us to the ice cream store w/o questions. very helpful.

I dont get why stores in the US usually have guys that act like assholes when you wanna buy something and then in Asia they are so nice and helpful, and still cool.

bape NY is the only store i've been to, so i assume i got accustomed and it most likely alters my opinion, but i love the staff there. the majority are real chill and say hi and make polite conversation. i guess if they see you a lot they start to warm to you? i dunno... but i concur, their og staff did suck, minus chris.

Dickwads working at boutiques is nothin' new. There's something about boutiques that bring elitests to the yard.

Fred Segal, BWS, Alife, local skate shops...sh*t, even Abercrombie is like that. Alot of the people who work in these types of places tend to initially "size-up" people who come in to their shops. Almost like you gotta pass some kinda test just to drop coin in there.

The smaller the market for the product, the more elitest the salespeople.

this forum is called "bapetalk" right??

bbc is basically affiliated with bape right??

or am i missing something here??

oh, i get it..i should make a thread talking about how great the OG sharks look...that'll be real a original and interesting topic to talk about

those stairs arent dark enough to where you cant see someone coming up the stairs. only steve urkel trip on them joints. and i belive the bbc/icecream stuff at barneys is more expensive. the basic tees in barneys is 100 in bbc icecream they are 80. And i went with my gf and she actually knew one of the staff members there and it was all smooth the guys and the girls were cool to us. when i was purchasing something up in the bbc section of the shop one of the girls and my gf started to have a convo about SAT's and Prinston Review and shit. That kinda courtesy and integrety they showed made me wanna come back. but i do agree on you wen u say they need more heat. for the opening they should of had some new heat. only thing that was new were those boardflips, the tees, and those new bbc gloves. and i wouldnt be surprise if someone on this thread tells me those gloves came out 10 months ago in Japan. lol.....
