I love West 49! I personally don't shop there for myself anymore, but I buy my brother's his gifts from there as he is active in both skateboarding and snowboarding. They sell quality products that are made to last. The staff members are always extremely helpful, and knowledgeable. Prices are high, but well worth the products.
I've never bought clothes from here, but I love their shoes and purses! Some of them are pricey, but I've managed to get a few pairs of cute slip-on skate shoes on sale. I like most of their shoes, so it's sometimes hard to choose which pair to get! I usually look for purses on sale here as well, they usually end up marking some of them down about 50%, so I can get a cute $40 bag for $20! A lot of the purses they sell are in fun and funky prints. People are always asking where I got my purse/bag when I get them from West49.
I love West 49, especially when stuff is on sale. I got a pair of Roxy flip flops there for $9 and a pair of Etnies for $60, originally priced $20 and $100. Most of the stuff is really skater-punk, but some clothes are really cute and I like buying clothes from there. The store in West Ed even has a skate park.
West 49 is a fun skate shop to walk around in. I love the shoes and hoodies best. The prices are pretty good, but they have better sales. I think they need more accessories. They do have some, but not enough. They have Emily, Roxy, Billabong, West 49 house brand, Element, and the list goes on and on.
