Torontonian vintage heads are in for another treat as founders Josh Roter and Chantal Varela of, In Vintage We Trust (IVWT), expands their e-commerce market and opens its first ever retail headquarters store in the city’s ever growing Parkdale area. With their innate ability in retail, wholesale, design and fashion consultation, their passion lies in vintage clothing.
“eBay has been an excellent platform for us to grow our business internationally. However, the majority of our customers are not located in Canada. We knew that we wanted to bring IVWT to the local market and the best place to do that is right here, in the heart of Parkdale,” said co-owner Josh Roter.
Having earned its share of recognition and winning the eBay ‘Service-preneur of the Year’ award, IVWT guarantees to source some of the rarest vintage garments on the face of the earth by bringing the best of workwear, sportswear, military, and popular culture to the Toronto market. Both Josh and Chantal’s approach to vintage is unique as they aim to create a new way to view vintage menswear along with excellent customer service and product knowledge.
“We pride ourselves in being able to provide a back history to all of the items that sit inside our store.”
Inside the newly opened brick and mortar shop, you will find some of the vintage industry’s most elusive hand-picked garments that you simply can’t (and won’t) find anywhere else.
Despite another vintage shop coveted on the West Queen West strip, In Vintage We Trust believes itself to differ from the typical vintage clothing experience as they have grown from being an online shop (in 2010) to one of the top names for international vintage menswear and collectibles at fair market value.
Support the ever growing vintage wave and visit their newly opened retail location at 1580 Queen Street West, visit them online invintagewetrust.com, or follow IVWT on Instagram @invtgwetrust.
