Opened in July 2014, LESS17 (pronounced “less one seven”) caters to men that are looking for a unique mix of clothing, accessory, and footwear brands showcased in a space that is befitting of the brands. With items such as selvedge denim, wool pieces, leather wallets, and boots, LESS17 provides an exceptional selection of goods from such brands as are Filson, Nudie, Vans, Reigning Champ, Wolverine 1,000 Mile, Palace, Red Wing, Bellroy, Ray-Ban, Naked & Famous, and more.
The store promises to add more brands to the mix as the store evolves…

You will be surprised with the store’s design concept!

On the lower level of the store among clothing and footwear there is the Secret Eight gallery space, which showcases artists’ works, from both local and international scene.
Beside the “shopping experience” you will also find a comfortable lounge-style area with a skylight and vegetation, also on the same, lower level.

LESS17 will continue to bring in exclusive products, keeping discerning men of Calgary looking fresh.
