NEW YORK — As streetwear surges in popularity, Stussy—the unofficial godfather of the category—is upping its commitment to retail, opening four flagships in the span of six months.
The new Stussy flagships—in Honolulu, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., and Toronto—more than double the North American retail presence of an otherwise unassuming streetwear label, founded 27 years ago by So Cal friends Shawn Stussy and Frank Sinatra Jr. Stussy opened its first flagship in 1990 in New York, and later set up shop in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
