VSP Consignment Debuts Menswear Offering

It's available online from today.

Toronto-based consignment store VSP Consignment has just announced the introduction of menswear to its already covetable line-up.

Launching online from today, the selection includes pieces from Acne Studios, Dries Van Noten, Commes des Garçons and more. Most recently, the site offered a selection of menswear during its Schitt’s Creek wardrobe sale last year. In fact, that sale – and Dan Levy’s iconic sweaters – were instrumental in bringing the new category to life.

Marlowe Granados, the content and partnerships manager for the brand, told FASHION, “VSP was interested in expanding our online store to include menswear to meet the demand from interested clients. Since partnering with Schitt’s Creek in October for the Schitt’s Creek wardrobe sale, we’ve acquired a whole new audience interested in both consigning, and buying menswear pieces. We can definitely thank Dan Levy’s iconic graphic sweaters [for that].”

The growth of the resale industry overall was another key factor, Granados explained. “We’ve carried menswear for a couple of years now, and people have become familiar with being able to shop those pieces in-store. As the resale industry grows, it only makes sense we cater to another large demographic of the community. Expect to find Dries Van Noten, Saint Laurent, CDG, Rick Owens and more,” she says of the VSP Consignment offering.

As of today, the company’s physical location on Dundas West will be closed until further notice amidst the Covid-19 crisis, however its website remains open for customers to shop. It is offering free shipping in North America during this period, and a 15% discount on its gift cards. As many have stated in the media across the past few days, gift cards are an excellent way to support local businesses in this time of uncertainty.
