Streetwear across the Strait
A long-time provider of hip hop and skate clothes and proponent of skate culture in Victoria, Complex Clothing has crossed the Georgia Strait to school Gastown shoppers in the art of “fresh”. When it opened its doors in Victoria in 1998, Complex was one of Vancouver Island’s first retailers dedicated to hip hop couture. The newer Vancouver store reflects this ethos with bright lighting, polished floors and professional, knowledgeable service. Have a question about a brand or style that Complex carries? Chances are the owners/founders can answer 99 percent of your questions. The advantage of having two Complex stores is also clear as you start to shop: if a size or colour isn’t available, they can always ring the Victoria branch for backup.
Urban clothing and art
If your preferred look is urban and street, Complex carries the full spectrum of colours and styles you need to keep your look on the edge. They carry unique kicks from top brands such as Nike, Puma, and Adidas - great for that vintage hi-top look. As well, you'll find baseball hats to cover your lid stylishly, whether you prefer to root for your team or strike a pose with a fresh design. Plus, there are hoodies, jeans, jackets, and T-shirts for both men and ladies from top streetwear makers. And for the urban street artist, Complex sells a full array of Montana spray paint and paint pens.
