Your Favourite Queen’s Retailer

Your Favourite Queen’s Retailer

Who are we? 

Established in 1994, Oil Thigh Designs is not your average Queen’s retailer. Not only are we 100% student-run, but we are also entirely not-for-profit. All our profits are donated to charities chosen by our staff & customers! Our team consists of students passionate about making a meaningful impact during their time at Queen’s.

What do we do?

While you may know us from our huge HOCO & St. Patrick’s Day sales, we also have tons of offerings all year-round. Here’s a rundown on what we do: 


  • Custom Sales

OTD has a custom sales team dedicated to helping you customize garments, whether it’s for a club, sports team, event, or anything in between! Check out our ‘Custom Orders’ tab to get in touch & chat about what we can do for you.

Our yearly OTD Birthday Bash is a tradition to celebrate our creation (March of 1994)! We also host mini pop-up shops throughout campus and are involved in events that differ each year!

We hope you learned a little something about OTD & all the ways you can support us. 

Don’t forget that since we’re a non-profit, you can shop completely guilt-free!
