Favorite Canadian Store. Retail or online.

Hey guys,

I am looking for all the Canadian opinion's on their favorite retailer (storefront or online).
I saw the Official Shop guide, but there are tons of shops on there.

I am trying to narrow it down a bit.

The reason I am asking is because I am personally looking for a retailer (Storefront or Online) specifically in Canada who I could shop my holiday line to. I am getting a lot of buyers from Canada, and a Canadian retailer would make this easier considering all the forms I have to fill out each time.

For storefronts, I am looking for places that have a wide / decent selection and a good customer service.
The last thing I would want would be to have my clothes in a store in which I wouldn't feel welcome shopping in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Livestock/Goodfoot for Stussy, The Hundreds, some other random stuff, and shoes

Subdivision for everything else

El Kartel puts out some good stuff too

No, the word is demographic.

Holt Renfrew is uncontested the best shop. People should quit dick riding the local shops.

my favourite store would be gdft/ransom/nomad, thats usually the first place I go to when looking for shoes and clothes, selling your line to goodfoot would be good because they have locations all over canada

Goodfoot FTW. Livestock is good too, but I just find the guys at Goodfoot nicer and they're really helpful.

actually it's just "person"

How about info on your brand , i mean how can we suggest any shops
when we dont know what your selling ??

One guy said Holt Renfrew , true great Canadian shop but maybe your
selling Paco clothing. Another said Da Zone (crap IMO) but maybe your
selling Emo Skinny Jeans ........... etc etc.

Need to know what your selling.

Yeah, sorry about that, I probably should have initially clarified.
I started a line titled Villainy Brand.
Just 4 basic tees for holiday 07 and then 5 tees for the spring.
Heres our post from a few weeks back from the "upcoming and emerging brands" section:

http://www.hypebeast.com/forum/showthread.php?t=52729

Here are the 4 tees we have currently.


You can also check our myspace and blog (in my sig)

Thanks again to everyone for the information. It really helped me out choosing what stores to approach.

i'm liking those tees, especially the coke diet tee. If you're lookin for shops, the spot in winnipeg is definitely The Urban Bakery. dope store, recently renovated.

all fucking horrible stores haha

Goodfoot easily. No other choice.

They don't really peddle brands they have no business selling like Livestock (Idiom?????), they are nowhere near pretentious like SBDVN, and the people are dumb nice. I can spend 30 minutes in G' buying a tee and I think that says something.
December 10, 2007 @ 00:33:37
how is livestock selling idiom any different than goodfoot selling north face nse?
December 10, 2007 @ 15:33:52
Pretty good argument...

I digress. But still, I can see G' carrying NSE and I just never thought we'd see metallic Idiom jackets in Livestock, considering what they told me about no other actual snowboard shops being able to have an account. That's kind of the direction G' is going in (with the Penfield jackets and Red Wing boots and all...) and Livestock seem like they just want to sell $700 jackets.

I think both shops are great for vancouver. Both shops I think are just trying to differentiate themselves from all the toy ass streetwear shops popping up. They both are trying to cater to a more knowledgable customer rather than a second tier shop such as Complex, dipt, etc who are/were urban shops that are trying to cash in on the hype.
December 10, 2007 @ 16:09:03
lol, more knowledgable customer = a hypebeast

Complex and Dipt have been around longer than any of the new shops like g and ls. They are pre-hypebeast, and have always carried brands like stussy and nikes and staple and things of that nature. clothing trends come and go, staying relevany and on top of it is a good thing
