Riot Season

At its soft, cotton-y core, the T-shirt is all about simplicity.

Bare arms. Soft threads. The possibility of instant nakedness.

This summer, keep it simple at Suburban Riot’s first ever store, now open downtown.

Stationed on 7th Street to “show off the brand in a hood that reflects what we’re about,” Riot’s showroom is a simple affair with Western-style blankets and leather chairs, where clothes and bicycles hang from exposed water pipes.

Everything’s available online. But when you drop in, here’s what you want to pick up:

The Jet Pack tank, boasting muted tones, garment-washed softness and a stamp of approval from Charlie on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. (And while you’re at it, get this tee and this one, too.)

You’ll also want to grab this striped henley — it runs a slim fit, garment wash, and contrast stitching.

And don’t forget the French terry shorts. Their relaxed fit accounts for post-BBQ swelling room.

Oh, and they’ve designed a biking hat in honor of this weekend’s CicLAvia, and will be serving refreshments to participants. Mark it on your map as a place to stop.

Nota bene: Suburban Riot offers a 20 percent discount to folks who live and/or work downtown.
