The Original Vancity® Brand EST. 1998
We are Vancouver's premiere all-city men's and women's street wear brand.
The Vancity Original® Brand was established in 1998 by Mister Martini, a Vancouver local, street wear retailer and tastemaker. He was the co-owner of one of the first Hip Hop shops in Canada, which sold records, clothing, graffiti supplies, b-boy videos, and mix tapes, that went by the name, F.W.U.H. (F**K WHAT U HEARD).
The brand name literally came off the back of an F.W.U.H. shop logo tee shirt which said, "Vancity Original EST. 1994" on the back, in reference to the originality of the shop, its Vancouver roots, and the year it was established. In 1998, the Vancity Original® Brand was born. 18 years and hundreds of designs later, Vancity Original® has become a staple fashion brand for Vancouver locals, international travellers, fashionistas, and celebrities.
