Posers

West L.A.

Back in the ’80s, Melrose was the sartorial epicenter of the city’s punk scene—a legacy that’s being carried on today by Posers. Here, you’ll find just about every style of Dr. Martens combat boots and TUK creepers imaginable, along with iconic Brit brands Fred Perry, Merc and Ben Sherman (all hallmarks of ’60s mod culture that have survived to the present day). And don’t let the store’s tough exterior scare you off—locals agree that Posers’ friendly service is one of the best things about it.

They Called my 6 yr old son ((((("A MEXICAN BASTARD THIEF")))))))

Avoid Avoid Avoid these people at any cost.  They are such mean, deceitful racists.  So last Sunday me and my husband and my 6 yr old son decided to visit Melrose.  As we were walking down the street we happen to pass by a Dr. Martens store (Posers)! The sign immediately reminded me of my teenage era and we decided to take a look inside.  We greeted by heavy tall guy with blond hair. Then an older women showed up from the back.  They insisted that we try something to the point of bugging.  In that few minutes me and my son were looking at the boots (we just did not want to try something) and  my husband was standing at one corner it is such a small crappy store.  We did not ask to try to anything and said thanks and were about to leave that the heavy guy and the old women exchanged some words (in Persian) and looked at my son.  All of thee sudden I was my husband turned red and got mad! My husband is Persian and understood what they had said.  They had said "check to see if the little MEXICAN BASTARD stole some shoelaces"!!!!!!!!!

We got really mad, they had accused my 6 yr old of stealing and they had been racist!!!! We got really mad and exchanged some words with them.  The old women that I just found her name is "Yafa" showed us finger and kept bad mouthing us.  They did not even apologize!!!

We left the store since they were yelling and cursing non-stop.  PLEASE PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING RACISTS.  MY FELLOW MEXICANS PLEASE STOP THESE RACIST PEOPLE. PLEASE LET OTHERS KNOW.
