Does Nordstrom's GM shop elsewhere?
Working for Nordstrom for 23 years, it’s fair to say American-born Chris Wanlass has had some time to hone his personal style. His tenure with the fashion retail giant has taken him to Atlanta, San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, and now Vancouver, where he’ll head up the brand’s new flagship as general manager. To easily transition from work to post-work events, “I try to buy timeless pieces and layer in a trend item now and then,”he says. “I’ve really been having fun with my shoes—I love a good wingtip for my dress shoes.”What’s the most beautiful piece of clothing in your closet? A Neil Barrett satin-sleeve jacket.What’s your favourite piece of clothing? I’m currently in love with a Rick Owens leather jacket. I can dress it up and wear it to work or wear it out and go casual.Favourite shave cream and razor? I bounce around with shave cream—it’s hard when you work in a store with so many choices. I like Art of Shaving, Kiehl’s, and Jack Black. My razor is a good old Mach3.Which gadget or article of clothing must every fashionable man own this season? White sneakers. My favourite pair is by Common Projects.Favourite brand and style of jeans? Levi’s Made & Crafted.What’s the difference between Canadians and Americans style-wise? I think Vancouverites are more put-together, with a more international/European flair, yet are still comfortable.
