GOODS is the story of well trained survival instincts. Established in the midst of the economic crisis, the concept has long proved its value and the shop has outgrown its original humble facilities. After four years in the basement of Classensgade 4 just around the corner, owner Kasper Hostrup felt it was time to take it to the next level. The concept of the shop remains unchanged; seeking out quality products with unique details and in addition to what has come to be regarded as the usual suspects of menswear, GOODS also stocks an impressive selection of accessories and bags.

At first it was only available in Europe, but from this fall the collection has become global. The concept is strongly influenced by the Northern Californian skate and surf culture, and each piece is designed for maximum mobility, comfort and durability.
