Concepts is for all the Boston-based sneakerheads, skaters, and snowboarders. The shop started in Harvard Square's well known Tannery, but opened its own shop back in '08. The store's design is pretty sweet and falls inline with the sleek, modern look of similar sneaker boutiques. And their collection of kicks is equally as satisfying offering a hosts of special editions and collaboration sneakers from Converse, Nike, Adidas and others.

Sometimes a person can live or go to college in a city for years and not really know it. Yeah they can tell you how to get to this street or that, but they probably can't tell you the best Italian restaurant, organic grocery store, or men's shop. So a little while ago, we headed back to campus to "re-tour" Cambridge, Ma. We've created a small list of our T.U.G certified favorite spots in Harvard Square. Then we went across the bridge and snapped, just a couple, pics of friends.
In the next few post we'll feature photos from the T.U.G certified spots. And from there you can go visit those stores and tell them that The Urban Gentleman sent you ;-).
