1. Where did the brand start ?
Established in 2019, originally founded in 2014, OD started with the owner’s interest and passion for street wear and rare collectible pieces. You can see some of Tetra’s Art Toy collection, statues by Kaws, Banksy, Murakami, and other rare sought after collabs, displayed at ODTO. Tetra also owns the first ever completed Supreme skateboard collection, which is worth over $1,000,000 USD featuring full decks sets that go back to the 90’s. You can see the entire skateboard collection embedded into the glass floor of the retail shop, skateboards like the LV cease and desist, last supper, Dan Colen, Jeff Koons, the 1 of 1 yellow Antihero sample and much more.
2. What is the motto ?
Live Life OD
Our motto is to never settle for anything less than your best. If you’re going to do something, do it with the intention to be the best and give it all you’ve got.
3. Who inspired ODTO ?
The inspiration behind the creation of ODTO was the lack of flagship stores in Toronto that could compete with cities like New York and Tokyo. Local shops that originally inspired ODTO’s founder such as GoodFoot and Showroom, were places he frequented growing up in Toronto. The aim of the shop was to create similar atmospheres but elevate them to be able to compete on a global scale with fashion capitals such as NY and Tokyo.
4. What is the motto ?
Live Life OD.
5. What is your end game with ODTO ?
“TO” is the first step in OD’s global venture. The aim of this brand is to elevate the consignment and resell segment to compete with boutiques and the brands they carry.
6. If you could collab with anyone who would it be and why?
Brands, artists, and athletes who share the same vision and represent the OD lifestyle.
