We caught up with Fatlace founder and Illest creative director Mark Arcenal at the recent exclusive Pre-Grand Opening Industry Night at the new Illest store in Costa Mesa, California. With the Fatlace Paddock in San Mateo serving as the primary NorCal store, the company decided that its store in San Francisco needed to relocate to the OC.

The fresh new retail space differentiates itself from other Illest stores with a design studio, showroom, and art gallery. It's easily four times bigger than the old store in San Francisco's Japan Town.

Currently on display is Mark's vintage 1972 Nissan Skyline 2000GT, which is rocking some sexy Work Meister CR01s. His Hakosuka is one of the very few C10 Skylines here in the states. While other Hakosuka owners did engine swaps, he kept it classy and left the 2.0L L20 engine untouched. If you're a fan of Japanese nostalgic cars you'll want to stop by and see this in person.

The art gallery showcased various Nike/Jordan art as well as nostalgic car paintings available for purchase. Many friends from the car industry rolled through and showed their support. If you're in the area make sure you stop by and see what they have to offer at 2950 Randolph Avenue in Costa Mesa. If you're not from California, you can always order your Fatlace/Illest swag online at Illestbrand.com
