Where to Shop: Vancouver's Best Stores for Men

Whether your everyday wardrobe is made up of classics or one-of-a-kind streetwear, Vancouver's got your back. Spread throughout the city, each neighborhood has something different to offer. In the downtown core you'll find large department stores and familiar brand names, while smaller neighborhoods like Gastown and Main Street are where you'll find smaller stores with trendy and lesser known labels.

If it's the latter you're after, you'll want to head to Roden Gray. They have called Gastown home for quiet some time now and this men's boutique carries brands like Gitman Brothers Vintage, Satisfy, Vans, and many more. It's on the higher end, but you're getting quality gear.

El Kartel is a celebration of art and fashion and they bring in brands and artists from around the world. Catering to both men and women, their inventory is constantly seeing new pieces arrive. You'll find shoes, clothing, accessories, and a solid selection of sunglasses at El Kartel.

Every man needs a good suit in his wardrobe and Harry Rosen is a Canadian staple. From a custom suit to ready-to-wear, they'll help you find something that fits like a glove. While you'll likely drop some serious cash here, these are suits that are going to last forever. If you're not in the market for a suit, they also carry classic everyday wear, too.
