I got a couple of e-mails this past weekend from people who wanted to let me know about their new urban gear online stores. Only one of them is worth mentioning: Urban Retro, an online store based out of the UK that specializes in fashion, art and vinyl toys. Oh boy! My favorites! Apparently the market has not become fully saturated just yet. Urban Retro is currently featuring t-shirts by the likes of Addict, Supremebeing, Yes No Maybe, Joystick Junkies, and more. They have artwork by James MacLeod, Lunartik (Matt Jones), Mal, Mnwrks, Pokedesign (Jon Ball), and Sampson Art. And vinyl toys by Touma, Kidrobot, Trexi, Andrew Bell, and Toy2r. So if you can't find it already somewhere else, check out Urban Retro and you should be able to find it there. The thing I like most about Urban Retro is the artwork that they are selling. Other than Pictures on Walls, you don't see a lot of online stores selling good contemporary urban artwork. You can also check out what's coming up next on their blog.
