Where to Get Good Wet Weather Wear in Vancouver, BC

Rainy days are here again and great rainwear is an essential part of any Wet Coast wardrobe. Here are my top three places in Vancouver to get good (read: stylish) gear!

1. Lord’s Shoes (women only, sorry guys), Gravity Pope, Nordstrom and the Bay for rain boots. Check out Aquatalia, Dav, Cougar and Hunter brands.

2. Lord’s Shoes wins again for cute functional jackets, but the best trenches and long coats are still at Nordstrom and Hudson’s Bay. If you decide you want to go custom, then Alison at Manuel Mendoza can make your dreams come true.

3. The Umbrella Shop has long been my go-to place for all shapes and sizes of umbrella and they’re closing down, retiring after many long years of great service, so get them while you can, on Broadway, Granville Island or Pender Street downtown.

As always, if you’re not sure which rain gear choice is best for your professional brand, we’re always here to help. Click the Get Started button to connect.
