    Listen up, fellas — it's okay if you've developed a split style personality over the years. One day, you're a skater kid; the next, a rugged, Bon Iver-digging fan of vintage threads. Local guy-in-the-know Greg Grammen, owner of streetwear mecca Palace 5ive, knows what it's like to be on both sides of the fence, and that's why he changed up his retail game over the weekend.

(or ex-S.O.). But, in there read
