Men’s buyers take on Las Vegas!

For most, Vegas is all about the entertainment – whether it’s walking the strip to shop, trying to get lucky gambling, or going out to watch a show. For buyers, Las Vegas is all about Magic Market Week! Twice a year buyers from all over gather in Las Vegas for the Magic trade show. Glik’s buyers are among them, ready to acquire the hottest new fashions for the upcoming season.

The Men’s team started the week at the Agenda show. Agenda is where street wear and action sports meet to combine the industry’s biggest brands and up & comers under the same roof. This show is truly an experience with packed booths, loud music, and an overall casual atmosphere.  For some, the most notable part of the show is the presence of celebrities who come to support brands they are involved in. Big Sean, Rick Ross, French Montana, T.I., & Swizz Beats were among those in attendance at this year’s show. As you can imagine, Agenda is a great experience!

The Men’s first day in Las Vegas ended at Liberty Fairs. Although it is located next door, the Liberty show is very different from Agenda. This show incorporates Men’s forward thinking fashion in a creative & artistic atmosphere. Liberty gives a big city vibe with guys donning rolled selvedge jeans, Herschel Little American bags, and rocking the undercut hairstyle.

The Magic & Project shows are the biggest Men’s shows. These are the shows we attend to see most of our non-branded and private label vendors.

It’s a lot to take in over the course of 4 days, but the Men’s team had a very successful Magic trip! We love bringing you the best and freshest product and we can’t wait for you to see what’s coming to our Glik’s stores in 2014!
