In 2008, illustrated example ({ie) opened as a brick & motor storefront in the Gastown District. Diverging from Livestock, it was created to break the conventional boundaries of Streetwear through innovative design and high craftsmanship.

Although the retail shop no longer remains, {ie's vision is still clear. We have transformed {ie into a contemporary sportswear collection that embodies our high standards for refined, quality product. Beyond functional designs and premium fabrics, the preservation of integrity for {ie is kept at a high precedence, and should never be compromised.

For every action there is a purpose and with every piece there is a story.
There was nothing unplanned and our momentum from here on out refuses to slow down.

At the end of August we proudly opened the doors to our fourth brick and mortar location in the heart of Vancouver's Historic Chinatown.

Recently, things have been changing within our industry mainly with apparel heading into a more technical, contemporary athletic direction, we are very excited about this move as we feel it aligns with our own direction. Over the next few years we want to continue to transform from a premium footwear boutique to a more well rounded holistic lifestyle approach, while continually bringing you the very best in limited and exclusive items. With that in mind as a top priority, we built this new store to host more apparel and accessories, categories that we hadn't taken that seriously in the past.

Conceptualizing the space, owner Gary Bone worked closely with local Vancouver designer Lucas Peet to take on the idea of developing a store front which is completely modular and can continually change for different product focuses. From the beginning, we were very open about our ideas and we were both flexible towards getting the best results. 

After opening our doors in Gastown back in 2004 we have been primarily known as a footwear store, yet we strive to continually evolve into a more well rounded lifestyle boutique. We are happy to be able to host more apparel in our new space, coinciding perfectly with the launch of our own private label, {ie , coming very soon.

Our new Chinatown store front is twice the size of our previous flagship store in Gastown, the main goal was to keep things fresh and versatile with our displays. Lucas came up with three modular racking systems to fit the long narrow space, typical for Vancouver's Chinatown district. He designed footwear, and apparel racks which hang from a rail system - allowing them to be placed along any wall in the space, making for easy changes to the overall look of the wall displays, which are able to host and highlight more apparel and accessories overall.

New to the shop and exclusively found at our Chinatown location is LA based watch brand TSOVET. Tsovet is an independent and superlative strength of efficiency representing the freedom of travel and exploration. Obsessed by the details, Tsovet started making watches that make a lasting impression, something they’ve been doing for a long time. Born and raised in California, the founders have lived in a geographical epicenter that has produced innovative designers and engineers from various creative fields. Their connection and creative contribution inspires Tsovet to explore innovative ways to engineer, develop and build better premium watches by using quartz and automatic movements imported from Switzerland and Japan. Check out the wide selection of Tsovet watches in our Chinatown space and online - TSOVET

With the wall features being interchangeable, Lucas also made the design of the floor tables / racks to be oriented three ways by flipping and rotating them to suit the store's layout and needs at any particular time. Additional features to the walls include a carry over aspect from our Gastown location, that being magnetized shelving.

adidas Originals has put together a short film dedicated to the adidas EQT models. check out the video from the brand below, and be sure to check back with us for Part 2 coming soon.


In March 1991, adidas launched adidas Equipment — a collection of shoes and sportswear that covered every discipline: from running to football to volleyball.

With new colours, a new logo and an approach to design inspired by Adi Dassler's original approach, the collection had a simple slogan: "The best of adidas." Part 1 of Will Robson-Scott's short film visits Portland to talk to industry legend and adidas Equipment creative director Peter Moore. This first part takes trips to NYC to talk EQT with Jesse Villanueva of ALIFE, Herzogenaurach for a conversation with adidas Originals design director Paul Mittleman and Tokyo to meet with Shigeyuki Kunii from mita sneakers and Blackburn for a chat with world known adidas connoisseur and collector Gary Aspden.

The Hundreds recently interviewed the designer of our new Chinatown store, Lukas Peet, to shed some light on Livestock's latest project. Here's a excerpt from the interview, click here to read the full interview.

"Owner, Gary Bone decided the time was right to re-define the shop’s presence in Vancouver, and teaming up with Chinatown’s Fortune Sound Club, provided the ultimate opportunity. The result is a four-storey concept that includes the re-designed Livestock boutique, a multipurpose gallery space, a restaurant that may or may not be named Hunger Hut, and of course, Fortune Sound Club."

Our new flagship store will be opening soon in the heart of Chinatown. Stay tuned for more information.
