Let's be honest. Most "streetwear" brands can make you feel very unwelcoming when you enter their storefront - No eye contact, no helpful sales associate, not even a "hello" in most cases. Even on social media, it seems faux pas for these brands to interact with their customers and make them feel welcome.
Why is this? Why do we support brands like these?
I am tired of seeing these streetwear brands try to maintain their "cool" factor and think that failed customer service would help accomplish that.

a tight knit family
Welcome to Tight Knit Clothing. I wanted to build a brand that brings people together. I wanted to bring back good vibes, good customer service, less seriousness, you know?
Inspired by hip-hop, golf, the city of Toronto and street culture, Tight Knit Clothing was created to build a community - it's based on that tight knit family feel.
It's very important to me that we are working towards building a "Made in Canada" brand. I want to support local designers, printers, and manufacturers. Right now, our clothing is made in Scarborough and printed & embroidered in Newmarket.
We have worked with local artists and content creators like Masta Ace, Kardinal Offishall, Ryan Shepherd, The Fix Podcast, The Pals Podcast, Miles Jones, Gordon Ross, Kayo, Classified, Dank from Frank N Dank, Niall Sexton, Locals Only, Chetty's Hot Sauce, and Ruby Soho to name a few.
Tight Knit Clothing is all about connecting us all together - our culture, and our city. We take pride in using high quality garments as our canvas. We’re family, we’re #TightKnit
