7 Dope Canadian Streetwear Brands You Should Know

Unlike NBA basketball (or, at least, until recently), Canada’s major urban centres can easily be credited with a streetwear scene as prolific as its winters are cold. Its brands can be counted among the world’s best, often sharing shelves with the likes of Supreme, Crooks & Castles and other household names. Unfortunately, they rarely get the hype they so rightfully deserve. We turned our gaze north of the 49th parallel to bring you seven of the best new and established streetwear brands the Great White North has to offer straight out of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

Tucked behind an inconspicuous sunken storefront on Toronto’s Yonge Street, NOZO’s flagship store is home to its eponymous streetwear brand. Its aesthetic consists of logo-centric unisex T-shirts, sweatshirts, joggers and even accessories—crazy metal-plate snapbacks included. Unlike many brands hoping to become the next hype label, however, NOZO prides itself in offering fairly-priced, mid-range products you can actually get your hands on.


New Regime
Established in 2009 on the streets of Montreal, New Regime exhibits no shortage of Canadian pride. Maple leafs, digital prints of local streets and Francophone typography come together with fresh logos on their T-shirts, button-ups, snapbacks and sweatshirts. A handful of exclusive retailers have picked up on the brand Stateside, including Wealthy Ho$tage and Alumni of NY in Brooklyn.


Vancity Original
One of the most established Canadian streetwear brands to date, Vancouver’s Vancity Original was created in 1998 out of the original brand, F— What U Heard. Vancity caters to both men and women with a raft of staple sweatshirts and tees, plus caps and accessories. Think of it as Supreme for Northerners.


Get Fresh Co.
This streetwear brand and storefront pays homage to its home city of Toronto, affectionately known by locals as The 416 and The YYZ. The Get Fresh Co. boutique calls upscale Queen West Avenue home, carrying brands including Kennedy Denim, Embellish NYC and Vitaly Designs (the latter is another homegrown company). Its in-house label currently consists of a variety of snapbacks and leather jackets.


Raised By Wolves
A growing brand out of Montreal, Raised By Wolves produces its apparel both in Canada and in the United States and limit its products to a single run. As a result, expect limited edition T-shirts, sweaters and winter wear in a mix of Americana and references to the Great White North. Their hats, quilted caps and gloves are especially worth hitting the trail for.


Sharks & Hammers
Located in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district, Sharks & Hammers is part boutique, part steetwear label and part meticulously-curated gift shop. Alongside its own goods (mostly graphic apparel), you’ll find goods from SSUR, Levis, Penfield and more.


TheLegendsLeague is a creative brand and streetwear label that focuses on graphic T-shirts and headwear. Oh, and you’ll find some of their goods on Drake’s back. Right now, one of the few places you can get your hands on their apparel (offline, at least) include Livestock, Canada’s premiere streetwear boutique, Capsule in Toronto, and NRML in Ottawa.
