It also carries footwear, accessories, personal care items, watches, wallets and skateboarding goods. If you’re unable to visit its 17th Avenue location, their website offers online shopping.

The Space: The most distinguishable feature of the space is the ceiling adorned with black-and-white photographs. The clothing displays are set on a wooden of concrete walls or on shelves held up by thick chains. Everything is clean, well laid out and easy to shop. The downstairs area includes a good selection of denim, outerwear and T-shirts, a seating area near the change rooms and an art gallery space that is ever-changing with new artwork installations.
