Inventory Magazine Chief Ryan Willms Shares His List of the Seaport’s Sights and Bites: To mark public voting for our travel photography competition, Your Secret Cities, photographer Jennilee Marigomen tours Vancouver, British Columbia, with Inventory founder and Editor-in-Chief Ryan Willms. With its dedicated team headquartered in the Canadian city’s historic Gastown district, Inventory has in recent years emerged as the last word on contemporary craftsmanship and understated chic. Championing heritage-focused brands such as Visvim, Margaret Howell, Engineered Garments and Yuketen with behind-the-scenes exclusives and interviews, the magazine highlights the authentic workmanship that goes into today’s classic menswear. “What really separates Inventory is the depth and integrity of the brand, to remain true to our tastes, aesthetic and beliefs,” explains Willms. “We’ve always just tried to make the magazine we would want to read. The same general rule applies to our retail.” After the success of his traditional and online publishing platforms, Willms established the Stockroom just a few meters from the Inventory office. Defined by industrial lighting, exposed brick and minimal décor—no hunting-cabin Americana in sight—the store offers a carefully selected range of outdoorsman-inspired brands alongside Inventory’s own collaborations with the likes of designer Mark McNairy, Viberg boots and Mt. Rainier Design. Here Willms shares his tips on where to find the Inventory attitude in Vancouver. – NOWNESS
