BAPE Pirate Store sails into L.A. from Dec. 26-30

December 18, 2009 |  8:00 am

BAPEPirate We just got word that A Bathing Ape's Pirate Store concept (what we non-cool kids might know as a "pop up store") is set to dock at the Melrose BAPE store location the day after Christmas, where it will remain through the 30th.

During that time, the store will feature archived and factory second pieces of men's and women's clothing, footwear and accessories for up to 70% off.

We hear there is even a chance the brand's founder Tomoaki "Nigo" Nagao himself will be kicking around the joint -- rumor has it he's scheduled to be at the Los Angeles store for the Dec. 20 limited-edition Kid Cudi X Milo T-shirt release (those shirts go on sale at noon, with Kid Cudi on hand for photos and autograph signing that afternoon).
