A Message from the Owner
On behalf of the NYLA Fresh Thread Team, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing to shop at locally owned businesses such as ourselves. Building and operating a small business is a challenging task that can often receive little to no reward. The support we’ve received in our 7 years of operation, from our local Nanaimo community to those situated all across Canada, has been astonishing. People such as yourself are the reason that this menswear dream continues to be a reality.
A carpenter by trade and a single dad to three boys, I founded this store as I was saddened by the lack of local menswear options in the Downtown Nanaimo district. I wanted to shop at a place where I could comfortably find all my casual, classic, or contemporary clothing needs, without the hustle and bustle of a big-box store, the youthfulness of a skate-centric chain, or the elegance of an upscale boutique. A place with a relaxed atmosphere filled with friendly faces and quality clothing that will last years in terms of both make and style.
I’m truly grateful for all the customers and staff that have been present in this menswear journey to create what NYLA Fresh Thread is today. If you live nearby or are visiting Vancouver Island, please feel free to drop by our Nanaimo Menswear location. We’d love to meet you and any four-legged friends you may have!
Have a wonderful day in paradise!
Owner & Founder of NYLA Fresh Thread.
