CapTracker TV: 5 & A Dime

During my Cali excursion, I also made a trip down to SoCal’s very own San Diego. While I was there, I made sure to visit one of the most unique shops I’ve ever seen. Very few shops look like 5 & A Dime. Fewer shops offer what they have to offer too. From the classic interior, to the brands, to the customer service, 5 & A Dime in San Diego, CA is a boutique that’s as original as it gets. To learn more about 5 & A Dime, check out the video above.

CapTracker TV: Attic (Buena Park)

After a nice long vacation in California, I have finally come back home to the DC area. I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing, really… I miss Cali already. California is an amazing escape for anyone who needs a break from the mundane routine of pop fashion brands. The underground brand scene in Cali is a booming industry and it continues to grow day after day. It seemed like almost every day I was there I would see a plethora of tees and caps not found on the east coast.

With that being said, I now give you the latest episode of CapTracker TV. The Attic (Buena Park) is one of Orange County’s most popular boutiques. It’s grand scale, as well as brand selection, make it an excellent staple store for any streetwear fanatic in SoCal. As well as carrying the brands the public knows and loves, they also give opportunities for the lesser known brands to shine. A good mixture of solid names and rising stars.

Check out the video and see for yourself.
