Bootlegger is a national retailer that has endured the test of time. They opened doors on West 4th in March. Not everybody knows that Bootlegger is a 40-year-old company that began in Vancouver.
The retailer is known for offering moderately priced clothing for men and women. Their focus is on casual, current fashion, with a big emphasis on jeans, not unlike Mavi located across the street at 2112 West 4th. In fact they have “jeaneologists” on staff who will help you find the perfect fit. In addition to their in house line, you’ll find brands including Silver Jeans Co., Guess, Mavi, Big Star, and Buffalo; and up and coming brands like Miss Me, LA Idol and Affliction.
I have a soft spot for Bootlegger – working at one of their Saskatchewan locations was my first job! Well, I did have a very short stint as an engraver at a trophy shop, but it didn’t last long enough to count. Anyway, my style and fashion preferences have evolved from my days of working at Bootlegger, but the place still brings a smile to my face.
As you likely noticed, there is a lot of construction on West 4th right now, so they’ve postponed the big Grand Opening plans until there’s less to contend with. We hear sometime in May.
