products

t-shirts, sneakers, accessories, and cut & sew from some of tokyo's growing 3rd wave of street brands, including devilock, ag, community, mackdaddy, covert org, lowrider, calee. domestic t-shirt brands from the smarter lines like mishka, rockers nyc, crooks & castles, and king stampede. healthy emphasis on silver goods from tokyo's garni. limited run toys from tokyo and nyc; kaws, futura, medicom, bxh, secretbase. good stock of sneakers from any and all brands. also, decks and parts for all your skate needs

clientele

from art students looking for slim fit t-shirts and silver goods to baltimore hustlers looking for rare air force ones. shop's clientele varies - i've seen all types of people in there. almost always people skating outside on weekends.

service

service is good. they always say what's up and let you know what's new. maybe a little pretentious though.

interior

the shop changes every season. right now it's done up in a full track bike theme, complete with floor tracks and racing murals. if you're into track bikes you'll love it, if you don't know anything about it you might not get it right away.

ambience

>> smart but chilled, neat and orderly <<

creation of a baltimore native-cum-tokyo transplant. shop gentei's revolving seasonal themes and exclusive tokyo imports [found no where else in the states] make for a unique concept not only for baltimore but for the u.s. as a whole. word on the street is that they're going online soon so everyone can get in on the good stuff.
