Dually recognized as one of Canada’s premier denim-specialty boutiques and a safe haven for denim nerds, dutil. has garnered a reputation for the shop’s smart selection of brands and upstanding guidance of clients. Marking their respective territories in Vancouver’s Gastown neighborhood and along Toronto’s prominent Queen Street, two brick and mortar locations sustain the boutique’s longstanding dedication to weft and warp. Sharing his time between dutil. as well as Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith and Mosley Tribes as the Canadian rep, Eric Dickstein has tendered a selection of items for our recurring Essentials highlight that bears little similarity to the formulaic groupings of routinely hype-driven items we’ve seen in the past.
