It’s perhaps fitting that the name of Vancouver’s new menswear concept store sounds like that of a character,because that’s exactly what Roden Gray delivers the modern male shopper – a powerful combination of style and character. Presenting an avant-garde collection of apparel, shoes, bags, colognes and accessories from such innovative brands as Nice Collective, Obedient Sons, Wings + Horns, Filson and Comme des Garcons. Roden Gray brings a new sophistication to casual wear, while offering men the opportunity to find one thing, or everything, under one welcoming roof.
Roden Gray founders Rob Lo and Davie Fernandes bring years of high-profile experience to this cutting-edge boutique. Lo played a key role in modernizing Vancouver’s fashion scene while establishing a keen eye for contemporary brands as manager/buyer at such exclusive locations as Bruce and Richard Kidd, and as co-founder of Dutil, Vancouver’s premium denim emporium. Complementing Lo’s creative talents, Fernandes brings years of financial experience earned working with one of Canada’s leading beauty manufacturers to the table.
The Roden Gray store itself is as much a reflection of its thriving and eclectic Gastown neighbourhood as of the brands that are showcased within. Douglas Fir logs from BC find new life as handcrafted furniture and custom lighting by Canadian industrial designer Omer Abel help set the ideal tone for a unique, relaxed and inspired shopping experience.
