Walked around where the store would be, then saw some camo neon sign on.. so walked toward it....

it doesnt have the fancy construction packaging the outter part of the building like HK did..
but I took some photographs nevertheless.

outside of the store... (pretty big)

i will try to get more pix today.. hehe

yes, the new location is closer to ESLITE BOOKSTORE (the huge 24hr bookstore).. not quite close to SOGO/BR4 as those are closer to another MRT subway station...

where the old store is, it is located North of the MRT blue line.. but now, the store is located on South of the line.. so totally opposite direction!

It's also near SOGO tho.

My dad told me about a new BAPE store opening in Taipei, I thought its gonna be a "water shop".
But appearently its not.

I had a hard time finding the shop without my map when i visited the old store. I walked around and saw Ed Hardy Edt. Then i walked in and asked the salesperson. He told me the direction but it was opposite direction. So I had to ask another shop and i finally found my way there. LoLx! I felt quite lucky that i found it eventually.

haha same here man. The first time I went I had the hardest time finding it. We asked taxi drivers and locals and they had no clue. Finally a taxi driver just dropped us off in Dan An district and we wandered around forever. Funny thing is we found these two hotties and asked them where the bape store was. They were like bape? and I show them a pic of the ape head logo. and they then realized and said "oooooo ape!" and then pointed us to the right direction. When we arrived there was a line for something. I think it was for a purple camo hoody.
