Went to check out the DQM-Vans store on Grand Street.  Great spot.  Founded by professional skateboarder Chris Keeffe, DQM was a spot  for skateboard gear and urban menswear, but they’ve really branched out and collaborate with all kinds of local artists, designers, photographers and more- a collaboration that is evident in the store.  It’s half store, half hangout.  And great place to hook up a pair of sweet old school checkered Vans.
