When some people think vintage, they imagine picking through racks on racks of garbage heaped clothing at the Salvation Army, or somewhere equally as unspectacular. But there is a place that exists; a place that tears down the ideals of what vintage hunting is. A goldmine of the finest (men’s and women’s) premium vintage pieces, curated by the highly knowledgeable staff who hand picks only the cream of the vintage crop. And this wonderland is called F AS IN FRANK. With flagship retail locations in Vancouver and Toronto, as well as a webstore, the FAIF team sees a cult like following of devoted and pleased customers, ravaging their shelves daily for finds from: Polo Ralph Lauren, Polo Sport, Celine, Versace, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Adidas, Balenciaga, MCM, Bally, Champion, Coogi, Converse, and a heap of other revered classics. You will also find a whole whack of accessories, a near infinite supply of rock t’s (and various other branded t shirts), a plethora of military jackets (flight bombers, pea coats, camo), an abundance of teamwear from NBA, NFL, NHL, etc. (starter jackets, windbreakers, sweaters), and a profusion of rare and deadstock snapback baseball caps, and their own reworked vintage (joggers, sport franchise denim vests, frankiecollective for the ladies).
