Stussy London Chapter closure: an unhappy St Patrick’s Day

Format Magazine reported the opening of a new chapter in Calgary, Canada the same day I got an email notifying me of the closure of the long-standing London store on Earlham Street with lights out on March 17.

The clothing will still be sold through fellow Gimme5 store The Hideout over by Golden Square and the Stussy Direct site. However its a shame that the streetwear pioneer is reducing its presence in London.

Many of its t-shirts and the World Tour website proclaimed Stussy locations: New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, London and Paris. London has been essential to the Stussy flava and the home to many of the original Stussy tribe.
