Sup all,

Take a look at our online store at FORT Apparel.com and tell me what you think. We have a pile of very TORONTO centric tees dropping in the next while as well, but so far we're getting a lot of love for 'toronto rising'.

Indeed, we've already had more then a few Hypebeasters order on the weekend and a great overall response to the grand opening, but we're trying to keep the ball rolling and get the name out/get everyone in Toronto/Canada aware. We're also going to be putting out new designs at a pretty steady rate, so the more exposure and customer base we get going, the more we'll be able to put out.

We appreciate all the support so far HB!

haha.. 3.99 flat rate, even if you grab 5 tees! come on haha.. But serious, as we gain the resources, you'll be able to grab FORT in some of your favourite Toronto establishments as well as the site. We're only 3 days old and we have a real solid supply system in place for right now, so give us a shot and I promise you'll like the process.

you might as well do meetups, depending on how close you are to the customers. putting a face to your customers is a lot more interactive and beneficial than insisting on having stuff shipped. i can understand if you guys don't have the transpo to do deliveries, but there's no reason you can't have people meet you downtown, or at certain events etc. to scoop their orders -

am i wrong?


Nah, you're definitely right and I will make an effort if it's the only option. The other side of the coin is I've invested time and money in setting up a great distribution system so that I can manage the orders, distribution AND my day job, know what I mean? In either case, I'm all about getting FORT out there anyway I can, so shoot me a PM if you want some gear and we'll work something out.

Meet ups ?? Sounds like gay coffee talk to me. $3.99 shipping and you want
meet ups .............. It cost more in gas or ttc fare to "meet up"

Dudes just want to be able to say "Yo i know these guys , we've hung out"
Its an internet based company not a shop front with internet shipping.

Meetups ........ ahahaha Meet ups

haha.. I'm not going to complain, I appreciate each and every order I receive, but I have made it nice and easy for you guys I think. You can grab 5 tees and I won't bump the shipping, and it is less then a round trip on the ttc. In either case, keep the orders flowing Hypebeast, we appreciate the business and the exposure.

Ouch, the doubt stings... it's a professional screen printing shop that we just happen to have a hook up at. I'll take some pics during production this weekend.

Thanks for taking a look.

Didn't make it out to the shop as planned this weekend, but started talks with a Queen st. shop to potentially carry FORT for those of you that like to hold it before you buy it... stay tuned and hopefully we'll be making that announcement soon.

In the meantime, check the site for the new shirt just released.... '92-93'

It would be better if you were to send a tracking number to the buyer so they could track their order.

Hey man, I know what you're saying and agree, but I'm trying to keep the shipping dirt cheap so I sacrifice that. Rest assured, you will receive your order in the 10-15 business days. Give us some space to get established then we'll be able to improve our rates with Canada Post. We won't forget those of you who jumped in early.

Those of you looking for pics
I had some stock at my place today so I thought I'd post a few shots for you guys who were wondering the quality. Let me know if you want more, but I promise everyone will be more then impressed with the quality of the prints, the finishing labels and even the packaging.
