Vancouver: Mavi Jeans
Where: 333 Helmcken St., 2128 West 4th Ave., mavi.com
Atmosphere: Mavi boutiques give off major New York City vibes with their dark wood floors and exposed brick walls, not to mention denim (in tons of different styles and washes) as far as the eye can see.
Brands: All Mavi, all the time
Fave piece for fall: I’m loving the Serena Super Skinny ($77 and up) with its low rise and sleek skinny leg for when only the tightest jeans will do.
Average price for a pair: Around $180
Services: One-on-one fitting consultations are available, making the trying-on process a little less daunting.
