About the Brand


Du/er, a Canadian brand based in Vancouver, has a captivating history deeply rooted in innovation and functionality. Founded by Gary Lenett and Abid Hafeez, Du/er was born out of a desire to revolutionize everyday clothing for active individuals. With a focus on performance, comfort, and style, Du/er's journey began by introducing a unique blend of denim and activewear, combining the best features of both worlds. The resulting creations were the perfect clothing for ""doers"" to move comfortably from bikelane to boardroom to an evening out, all without having to change.

Du/er's commitment to sustainability is evident in their use of eco-friendly materials and ethical manufacturing practices, making Du/er a conscious choice for environmentally-minded consumers. From stretchable and water-repellent fabrics to stain-resistant and durable designs, Du/er's clothing is engineered to withstand the demands of modern life while ensuring optimal comfort and style.
