Basic Colors on Coney Island Ave near Avenue J. I love the stretchy fabric they use and they hold up well. Their bandanas’ elastic doesnt last though.March 6, 2011 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #747230EzratHashemMember
Basic Colors brings a truckload to Passaic & KGH frequently, probably other locations too. His ad says he has a store in Brooklyn 1362 Coney Island Ave.March 6, 2011 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #747231yoyo56Member

Basic Colors has the best prices. Shell station charges $25 for a long sleeve shell.. Not that exciting when the sweater cost you only $20!March 6, 2011 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #747233popa_bar_abbaParticipant
This is not going to get interesting until someone says that it is assur to wear shells since anything which is not tznius by itself should not be worn with a shell either.March 6, 2011 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #747234ontheballMember
double header is in brooklyn, they have a web site- doubleheaderusa.comMarch 6, 2011 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #747235OfcourseMember

Yes, but not if the garbage bag has a red draw-string. Then it is assur also.March 6, 2011 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #747241hanibParticipant

candy613 – the shell station is on Lincoln and Devon.

Basic Colors located on j and coney its like 7 and 9 bucks each and best quality million colors and fabrics i think they manufacture themMarch 7, 2011 1:46 am at 1:46 am #747247
No – her mother is looking for a specific brand. The as-close-to-$10-as-you-can-get brand. But personally I think that It is assur to wear shells since anything which is not tznius by itself should not be worn with a shell either. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I was cracking up from popa and Daas.March 7, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #747248gefenParticipant
Is there a web site for Basic Colors?March 7, 2011 1:57 am at 1:57 am #747249cherrybimParticipant

Yoyo-don’t worry, you can wear a shirt under most sweaters-and brooks brothers has non iron ones that don’t require more care than a shell so they’re really wash, dry and wear!!March 7, 2011 3:16 am at 3:16 am #7472521221Participant
i know they also go from city to city selling i have famly in baltimore monsey and lakewood who always shop by them and they always let you exchange them where ever you want check your town if they are commingMarch 7, 2011 4:00 am at 4:00 am #747253
got a brother in Passaic who checks in with me when ‘the truck’ comes. He never mentioned shells though. But then again I don’t even know if he would know what they were. . . I’ve never seen him wear one. Shells used to be little half things to fill the neck line (way back in my day) but now its just a shirt that they wear under their shirt. It doesn’t look much like a shell at all.March 7, 2011 4:02 am at 4:02 am #747254
Basic Colors doesn’t seem to have a web site Will have to call my bro.March 7, 2011 5:12 am at 5:12 am #747255Smile E. FaceMember

woman should just wear garbage bags, and poke a hole out for the head…?!?!
You can buy them at Home Depot and they’re under $15 for a whole box, but you have to get the contractor bags, the lawn & leaf aren’t tznius. For plus size people, I recommend Hefty.March 7, 2011 6:22 am at 6:22 am #747258cshapiroMember

The Shell station near me recently raised their prices. They used to be about 2.99, now they’re up to about 3.50.March 7, 2011 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #747260
Daas – Thanks for the tip, I tried a box but my elbows are sticking out. Any ideas on what I could wear underneath?March 7, 2011 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #747261AinOhdMilvadoParticipant
you beat me to it!March 7, 2011 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #747262midwesternerParticipant
Gefen and Candy613 both know that the Shell Stations around here are up to 3.80. And if you want to be provincial, the Shell Station by Shloimy’s in Lakewood has a Landswoman (is there such a word?) that is there most of the time.March 7, 2011 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #747263torahdaynightMember
i got from basic colors in Passaic for 3 girls shells skirts and tshirts for camp for all under 200 dollars and it last for years and their bandannas are so comfortable WHAT A CHESED THEY ARE DOING!March 7, 2011 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #747264bptParticipant
“anything which is not tznius by itself should not be worn with a shell either. “
Daas and poppa –
You have the female members of the CR all wrong.
They plan on wearing the shells OVER the clothing they already own (can’t be too careful with out-tznius’ng your neighbor)March 7, 2011 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #747265
The garbage bag should still go over that.March 7, 2011 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #747266ha ha ha haMember

tznius is hidden but here everyone makes big issues of everything the reason why chava was created with a rib from adam is because it is hidden someone asked for help where to buy something and people instead of helping someone they are making a whole big thing about it try to keep it b’tzniusMarch 7, 2011 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #747268bptParticipant
” The garbage bag should still go over that. “
I don’t feel so comfortable with the “garbage bag look” as its too similar to the vinyl / wet look.
Burlap, perhaps?March 7, 2011 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #747269cherrybimParticipant
AinOhdMilvado: Sheli shelach, shelach shelach…la la laMarch 7, 2011 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #747270
The contractor bags aren’t so shiny, so they’re okay b’shas had’chak.
