Three Reasons We Love The Bunker

The Bunker proves it’s more than just the place for KC-centric gear.

Few stores in the city can rival The Bunker’s collection of KC-centric T-shirts, hats and other merchandise. But while we’re all for showing your local love, the Westport shop also carries a wide array of styles for guys (and ladies!) in search of a more polished casual look.

The store boasts a massive selection of jeans—and since finding the perfect pair can be as stressful as trying to parallel park with the streetcar coming up behind you, variety is appreciated. (Levi 513’s, $69.50)

T-shirts have their time and place, but sometimes it’s good to branch out and opt for something a little more refined. The Bunker’s solid range of button-front shirts avoids being boring with patterns like this one. (RVCA shirt, $55)

OK, so we couldn’t talk about The Bunker without letting one piece of KC swag in, and its signature KCMO hat is a step above your standard cap. We especially dig the simple, no-fuss black version, although brighter color combos are also available. (KCMO hat, $28)
