For over 30 years, Vancouver has been an epicenter of the outdoor gear industry. Its modern and diverse urban culture coupled with its timeless naturescapes has made Vancouver the place of living the high life in the great outdoors.
A pioneer in Vancouver’s outdoor gear industry, Westcomb is a leader in the re-emergence of world class, locally made products, through its design to production process, called the Shift Model. With the Westcomb headquarters, design studio, manufacturing, and warehouse facility all in Vancouver, this centralized design-to-production model allows for a nearly zero carbon footprint. No long flights to oversee production. No long shipments between warehouses, and more importantly, greater oversight into the development and production of each garment.
“I can walk from the drawing table to the production floor to see and feel my designs in progress,” says Alan Yiu, Creative Director. “Having such close face-to-face collaboration across the company ensures the absolute highest quality garment in terms of fit and workmanship is delivered.” The design team works closely to ensure fit, comfort, and versatility. Pattern making is part art and part science. To take a flat piece of cloth and fit it to the curves of the human body requires a keen understanding of fabrics, function, and ergonomics. Decades of experience have provided our pattern makers with the know how to ensure that each Westcomb piece looks and feels tailored to your body.
Every operator in Westcomb’s high tech manufacturing facility is an expert in their trade. With a keen eye for details, each ensures that micro-taped seams are watertight, articulated sleeves curve just right, and seams lay flat and are straight. For those that appreciate the highest quality, you’ll appreciate the detailing of construction and admire the impeccable fit.
