From my good friends over at FREE/MAN: A Pop-Up Market is the perfect chance to invite, host and showcase some of our favorite brands, that not only represent quality and craftsmanship but also focus on telling the story behind each product. The folks who guide these brands will also be in attendance for you to meet. They are passionate about their craft and excited to be on Canadian soil.
Over the last few years, we have been inspired by our American friends, who have hosted and produced similar events like this throughout the USA. In particular, New York’s Pop-Up Flea, Man-Up in San Francisco and Northern GRADE in Minneapolis.
There is yet to be an event of this type for the Canadian Market; one that focuses on the dedication to details through impeccable craftsmanship, storytelling and quality, which is why we decided to take matters into our own hands. This inaugural Pop-Up Market will be hosted in the incredibly beautiful, vibrant and coastal city of Vancouver, BC. If you are not familiar with the city, its home to various small boutiques, amazing coffee and many wonderful independent eateries. It truly is one of Canada’s finer locales.
We will be transforming a street level, heritage building on Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th, to accommodate and welcome you all to this event. Gentlemen’s Reserve promises to bring together some of the best labels in North American Menswear, Luggage, Accesories and Homewares over this weekend. We are sponsored by Viberg Boots, Driftwood Brewery, Lucy’s Eastside Diner and The Whip Gallery Restaurant. To add to the vibe we will have authentic 50′s style Milshakes available from Lucy’s Eastside Diner, an inhouse barber, and be welcoming Acquired Taste magazine to our tables.
