Where to Shop & Grub at Streetwear Mecca Fairfax & Melrose

Now that we've discovered the designer duds-filled block of Melrose Avenue, it's time we explore a nearby stretch just a few blocks east: the future mogul-inspiring streetwear playground of Fairfax and Melrose. As with all of our Perfect Saturday adventures, this intersection of ultradopeness offers enough stops to fill your shopping itinerary from sunrise to sunset (seasoned cool kids The Hundreds, newbies Popular Demand, rapper Tyga's Last Kings flagship, indie sneakerhead haunt Define Sole, to name a few), so we're zeroing in on just a few shops to ease into this super sick shopping stretch.

After the jump, find out where to get LA-loved kosher grub, where to shop kitschy-cool accoutrements, where pick up killer kicks and much more. Grab your best shade-providing snapback and let's go!
