Hi BeBxl, Sorry to hear you didn't find anything for your teenage sons. We are limited by the m2 we have so we focus mostly on men's and women's items. And you know teenage sons can be very demanding in what they want :) but...More

I love Univers on a T-Shirt. I had a custom-made shirt made for my husbands birthday and it turned out better than expected. Also, the off-the-rack shirts they have are clever and made out of great fabrics. It's the best place to get something if...More

Its very small store, but with a good vice. The amount of different shirts or hoodies wasn't amazingly high, but there were some fun ones and ended up purchasing a hoodie. So nothing special imo, but worth visiting if nearby :)

I just happily blew through some cash for two sweatshirts and on tee, with incredibly cool original graphics. The staff were sweet. I'm sure I'm going to hear "where did you get that?" when I get back to NYC.

I visited this shop many times and always end up buying something. It's a one of a kind shop with great customer service. Really enjoy it!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
