One totally awesome aspect of Vancouver is all the creative entrepreneurs doing their thing. Informal Attire for example is the brainchild of a friend of mine/well known North Van local and is designed right here in the city by local artists and designers. David Lynch fans will recognize the Twin Peaks influence and the rest of the line takes cues from film, classic literature, and paranormal mythologies. Really well thought out products for a high end skate/snow collection.
Anyone else know of some rad local companies? Post them up - Homegrown businesses are the best!
