products

proletariat's own line of streetwear, graffiti supplies such as krink, montana, belton, a ton of different graff caps, all kinds of skateboard stuff aimed at a college crowd or older--brands like zoo york, zero, enjoi, powell peralta, dgk--and the prices are the cheapest i have seen. they also have a huge selection of wearable vintage clothing, the kind of shit that all the majors are trying to imitate.

clientele

most of the people who shop there are about 17-34 years old. it is very heavy on the college crowd but you will see everyone from hardcore graff artists, to skaters young and old, and a ton of art or music students. most of them are either very indie or t

service

serivce here is great. most of the time the owner is there and seems to be the resident expert of graffiti and skateboarding. pretty sure he designs all the tees.

interior

concrete, huge warehouse windows, graffiti art, huge gold-painted a/c pipe going through the place. good mix of hip hop or rock on. lighting has a warm yellow glow at night, daylight flooding in during the afternoon.
