    Hoping to go down over the weekend, looks like some good stuff there.

    The only thing is it might be a tad more expensive since it is Mitchell and Ness stuff being sold.

    If anyone has been or goes down tonight if you could share some info about what they have (other that the new away Kit).

    cool little shop.
    But not many items last night. Not sure if they will have additional today.

    Majority of the items were Mitchell and Ness:
    - Red Bradley T-shirt
    - Grey Giovinco Atomic Ant T-shirt
    - Black Altidore T-shirt
    - Some TFC 10th Season T-shirts & Sweaters (Men's & Women's)

    Other items:
    - New TFC Magazine (will be replacing the programs from what I was told) $5
    - The 10th Season Hat in Black or Red (Probably the best item there) $35
    - Alternate kits only (no red kits) in mens, youth, and womens - Free Cresting on the Alternate kits.

    Nice little spot. I was there last night for the VIP event before it opened to the public today. It is Mitchell and Ness gear. Prices range from $35-$74. T-shirts around $44, several new lids $35, long sleeve t-shirts $64, sweaters $74. 2 different variant scarfs. (both with the blue color incorporated into them.) Season seat holder discounts are available if you bring your card with you.

    Not that much for selection on the clothes, probably 10-12 different styles I think. Not sure if more will be available, since half of their space was closed off behind a curtain and used as kitchen/alcohol storage last night.

    I popped into the pop up store at lunch today. I have to say I expected more. They had the new jersey, a few T-Shirts, long sleeve T's, a couple styles of sweatshirts and the Cap that was featured in the tweet. And nothing else really. I expected they would have filled the place with TFC stuff but it was really very empty.

    If anyone can post pics of the various styles of shirts (the hat we have all seen already I would assume) that would be great!

    Thanks!

    There's a shot on their FB account with some of the shirts. The designs look corny to me as they are integrating the player nicknames which are already a little cringe worthy. If the designs were less about the players and more about the club I'd be more interested.

    I agree with this. I went, enjoyed it, bought the black sweater. Remember to bring your discount cards!

    It was a massive disappointment for me. The highlight was seeing the new alternative kit up close (which is, noted, better than what they have at the Adidas Store at Y-D Square, which somehow lacks all the breathable elements at the back. Not sure if the kit they are selling at the Pop Up is authentic vs replica, but the best I've seen). All they are selling is that Mitchell and Ness junk. And I say junk because it's OK quality cotton with incredibly cheap lettering that's thick and looks like it was done by a low-end custom shirt printing job. Almost all of that M + N stuff is like that -- including the Raptors and Leafs -- even though it portrays itself as a more premium brand. It's premium in its marketing and that's it.

    It wouldn't have been so bad if the t-shirts weren't $45 to $70. The hats? Exclusive, yes, but they are also cheaply done with sparkly lettering. Really TFC, are we in 1983 (and yes, I realize that this retro stuff is 'in', but it's still cheap retro)? I was really surprised and, echoing others, it was remarkably sparse in terms of selection. Not much in there. Sure, it might be exclusive stuff, but it's awful stuff for what you're paying.

    I'm incredibly disappointed by it and would advise any other die-hard TFC fans to not waste the time coming into town to see it unless you're already heading to Queen West. I was lucky that I had an appointment about 15 mins away, otherwise I would have felt ripped off.

    On the upside, I was expecting to take a major hit on my Visa card and walked away with absolutely nothing and feeling good about it.

    Could anybody do me a favor when you are at the pop up shop. Ask if the alternate kit has to be purchased there in order to be customized for free? Also I have a long sleeve authentic and it does have all the breathable stuff at the back. FYI SVP Queen West has the alternate and home kit for $100 short sleeve or just alternate kit long sleeve for $110.

    Went in. Walked out 2 minutes later. All pretty meh. I like the hat but as somebody said, why the sparkle finish? Oh well...

    I would say the new alternate jersey looks pretty darn good but I don't think it was a real one they were selling.


    I can see why they did this though - went to the ACC to see if there was anything at the Real Sports store or whatever its called - all Raptors gear. Got me wondering how much of a change over they will be doing next week if the Raptors lose game 7.

    Yeah, overall pretty disappointing. Took more time to find parking then it took to browse and leave. I did buy the season 10 hat and got my discount without my card.

    Disappointed. Much more hip/hype than substance. Not a fan of the gear save for some of the lids - And I was not in the market for a hat. Went there special and was in/out in about two minutes.

    Unless you desperately need a hat, don't waste your time.

    Well my buddy and I decided we would at least go "window shop" after we saw the Sticker Fingers show at the Horseshoe last night (awesome band- check them out)...walked the few blocks east and just got to the corner and there was a street fight going on right in front so we turned around and never saw it...I think they were scrapping over a girl, but it might have been over the last TFC hat?...

    I got a black one and I think really the only thing worth it....I'm sure they'll pop up somewhere else but still got it.

    It's a missed opportunity for sales, would of been nice if they had tfc adidas gear and some of the tfc misc items available (coasters, shot glasses, sunglasses, blankets, keychains, signs, bracelets, etc).

    I got a black hat, not usually a hat guy but this one looks better than any other hat I've had, worth the trip just to get it. They were almost sold out of the black hats so probably only red caps and jerseys/shirts left now.

    Went in myself and picked up a red 10th year cap. Not much to do other than shop and look at some memoribilia, but if you were going in with a mind to make a purchase, it's pretty much exactly what it says on the packaging.

    It's so easy and much cheaper to get a custom sweatshirt with the logo. But yeah.. The price for a sweatshirt is ludicrous. I liked the Blizzard inspired scarf.

    Mitchell & Ness gear is for the most part only good for throwback jerseys if you have the cash.....otherwise not really worth the cost......

    Except it's NOT a warehouse sample sale. They aren't there to sell miscellaneous items like keychains and glasses. They are selling limited run items that typically don't interest the average "Real Sports" shopper.

    I'm sure the goal behind this pop-up was simply to keep some interest in TFC while the team plays an incredibly long road series. The Raps and the Jays are getting all the buzz, so doing events like this are good marketing exercises. It's a very trendy project, set in a hip boutique on Queen West. Is it for everyone? Absolutely not. Was it kinda cool for what it was? I say yes.

    I have to say though, that black Toronto sweater is probably one of the nicest pieces of branded TFC gear I've ever seen. Yes it's expensive, but that's designer clothes for you.
