Fads goes to NORML CLOTHING

After days of bitching about the lack of shit to do in Ottawa, I decided to gather up my balls and investigate a store that held a beacon of promise (poetics). NORML Clothing. When I first read about it, honestly i was a bit suspicious considering the the caliber of retail I had seen out here in the past. When I actually visited their website I was instantly reassured. 

awning For the record, just in case you were wondering, NORML is legit, and I would go as far as to say OD Legit.

They have a sick selection that ranges from the super fresh to the hipster fresh to the hyped-up fresh to the partially-hood fresh. On top of that they have a good amount of other perks that take them from being just a store to becoming a cultural institution. Hahahahaha thats a slight exaggeration, but these guys have their stuff down.

Momentarily looking past the clothes I was more impressed by the store’s second floor. Any store can stock cool shit, but not all stores have an in house art gallery and additional pop-up shop-within-store.

On the way downstairs i got he’pped to this jive cat…bear.
