Gastown stylin’ on the world stage

Believe it or not, Vancouver’s Gastown is nearly as chic as international tourist hotspots in Paris, Tokyo and New York, beating out areas in dozens of other cities to be named the world’s fourth-most stylish neighbourhood.
The historic, brick-lined downtown community was featured in New York-based Complex Magazine Tuesday for a piece called The 50 Most Stylish Neighbourhoods in the World.
“Gastown has become a menswear hotbed as of late, with well-regarded shops like Haven, Inventory and Roden Gray holding down the scene,” the publication wrote.
“(Its) blocks are full of gorgeous Victorian buildings that provide unique scenery for what’s currently an emerging neighbourhood.”
