Shop Thrill City!Saturday, December 7, 2013
In the heart of Franklin Street on UNC's campus, there is now an official streetwear clothing store. This is actually pretty amazing because just a year ago, this would have been unheard of. Like all new trends, North Carolina is usually slow to pick up on what's hot, so the streetwear market have been next to nonexistent in our area. Luckily, my friend Ryan who started the Thrill Life brand was able to secure a deal for a nice little spot right on the historic Franklin Street strip and opened up the Thrill City store.
422A West Franklin St
Chapel Hill, NC 27516
Hours: Tues - Friday: 2pm - 7pm
Saturday: 1pm - 7pm
Sunday: 1pm - 4pm
Closed on Mondays
Although small, the store is very inviting and Ryan continues to come up with ideas on how to improve it. The natural wood is definitely a nice look. I like the creativity with the hanging table as well.
He's very meticulous about branding and putting out quality products as you can see in all the Thrill City merchandise. Check out how dope these black boxes are, perfect for Christmas presents.
One of the coolest thing about Thrill City is that it is also the spot in Chapel Hill to pick up other local brands like, FYSH, Skyed, LIES, and Woodville. This is a shop aimed at not only promoting Thrill City, but other local brands as well. We definitely appreciate the exposure.
I spy some Woodville accessories. I love this brand, everything they make is so dope.
You can pick up some of our Varsity jackets from the store as well
Our snapbacks hanging up next to some 5-panels from a new Chapel Hill based brand called "Skyed". I don't know much about them, but their hats are nice!
There's a bunch of dope free stickers when you drop by the shop
If you live in North Carolina, definitely swing by the shop and check it out. The store continues to evolve everyday and there's always something new to see. It would definitely be worth your while, so please shop Thrill City and support the local streetwear movement!

Kenny recently moved to Boston, so Ricky and I decided to pay him a visit. Kenny scored a dope apartment with a very nice view.
We decided to come visit Kenny, check out all the dope shops, and go to the Yeezus concert. I brought my Yeezys to rock for the concert. Figured if there was a time to rock it, it'd be at the Yeezus concert haha.
Kenny and his friend Kevin signed up to do the Spartan Race in Fenway Park. We decided to tag along to spectate.
It was a lot harder than they thought, but both finished and earned their medal!
After the race, we decided to hit up Johnny Cupcakes. This brand is so dope, such an inspiration to us.
Stopped by the Nike Store, saw this amazing display.
Then we hit up DQM x Vans shop. It was very nice, with lots of dope displays.
We randomly passed by this store called Riccardi. They didn't let me take pictures inside but it was jam packed with dopeness. They had tons of KAWS statues and stocked with brands like Mastermind, Neighborhood, Comme des Garcons, etc. Needless to say, everything was priced in the realm of ridiculousness, so we didn't cop anything.
We made a pit stop at this Sneaker boutique called "At The Buzzer", copped some accessories and Jason Markk shoe cleaner. They had a lot of shoes, definitely a haven for sneakerheads looking for heat.
We had to stop by this legendary store, Bodega. It was definitely as dope as I thought it would be. They told me not to take pictures, but I did anyways cause I liked the store so much. I was able to buy a nice button up to rock for the night and Ricky copped a dope polka dotted Herschel duffle bag.
We stopped by another sneaker boutique called "Laced", had a good chat with the guy working there. He was a hip hop dancer, definitely cool people and friendly. Also, lots of dopeness in the store as well.
We also hit up AWOL, which was packed with merchandise. This store had a lot of clothes as well as shoes, which I like because sometimes these boutiques really lacks selection, but this place had it all. Very nice setup as well.
We hit up other places as well but I didn't get a chance to take pictures. Overall, the trip to Boston was awesome. I would definitely come back again, it's like a mini New York. Aside from all the shopping, I also really enjoyed the food in Boston. We had seafood, burgers, noodles, dim sum, etc. and it was all really freaking good. Looking forward to my next visit.
