What sizes and styles do you stock?

We carry a wide selection of business, casual, and contemporary clothing for men with all different styles. Our sizes range from XS to XXXL, with a variety of fits including long, tall, slim and relaxed.

Whether you’re on the hunt for a unique piece from John Lennon’s dress shirt collection, a comfortable and fashion-forward tee from Superdry, or a cozy and simple sweater from Minimum, we’ve got it all. This includes jeans and other pants from popular brands such as Du/er and Alberto, as well as jackets and accessories like ties and bowties, belts, suspenders, wallets, watches cufflinks and more!

NYLA Fresh Thread represents exceptional quality, well-known, and trusted brands. Our stock changes regularly – as do our displays – so make sure to come by often to see what’s new. And since we love to support local businesses, we choose Canadian brands and Canadian-made clothing as much as possible when we’re stocking our shelves.

Can I also find all items that are online in-store as well?

Yes! All of our online products can be found in-store as well. If you find something online that you like but prefer to shop in-store, feel free to contact us and we can hold the product for you for up to 2 business days.

Our in-store stock is also larger than our online range, so you may find some extra items you wish to purchase by giving us a visit at our Nanaimo location!

How do you choose your brands and products?

We pride ourselves on being a locally owned and operated store, and in the spirit of small businesses everywhere we strive to give our customers the best shopping experience. As such we only choose products and brands that we believe live up to our menswear expectations with regards to both styles and quality.

We also have a strong preference for Canadian brands and Canadian-made goods as we believe in supporting local.

If you have an inquiry about stocking your brand in our store, please email us at [email protected] for more information.

I don’t wear typically male apparel – why should I shop here?

You never know what you might find! We carry a wide selection of items that can cater to many different fashion senses. An oversized sweater can bring a sense of comfort to any person no matter how they like to dress, and our collection of both basic and eccentric socks is sure to find a special place in your heart. A bow-tie can be adorned by anybody trying to create a classic look, and if you’re in the market for a new watch we proudly stock Tense Watches, sustainably crafted from reclaimed wood in Port Coquitlam. And if you’re old wallet is out-dated and falling apart, we carry a variety of quality-forward Secrid wallets, made in Holland and outfitted with the latest RFID technology to protect your cards and cash.

If all this still doesn’t seem like enough reason to stop by, there may always be an opportunity to surprise a loved one on a special day with a high-quality gift. Feel free to stop by and ask our associates to help you choose that perfect piece for that certain person! And if you’re not quite sure what they would like, we also carry gift certificates that can be used in-store at any time.
