Anyone who has ever made the mistake of going to Cambridge's GARMENT DISTRICT too close to Halloween knows that you need to get there sooner than the last two weeks of October. The mob of college boys looking for stripper-nurse costumes and college girls looking for hotdog mustache props is way too imposing. Not too mention the throngs of fearful moms grabbing last-minute Yo Gabba Gabba!–inspired props. But Garment District is not just for Halloween. Whether you're into their warehouse of his-and-her racks, their low-priced retro room, or their famous 'dollar-a-pound' mountain of threads, Garment District certainly wins on volume.
