Founded in 2011 & Incorporated in 2013 in one of Vancouver’s grittiest
neighbourhoods, Lords of Gastown is a Life Style Brand. Spawned in the
PNW and raised in East Vancouver, their love for Harley-Davidson led to
the design of street wear & apparel offerings geared to the brand’s
enthusiasts. They quickly gained the interest of Brian Barnes of Barnes
Harley-Davidson Canada. Barnes Harley-Davidson operates Canada’s top 3 dealerships and was a perfect partner for Lords to grow their audience.
With the help of Barnes Harley-Davidson, Lords was able to develop wholesale partnerships across North America. Lords reputation for design and quality grew, gathering notoriety and a massive social following across the United States with a strong following in California, Lords was invited to Born Free Motorcycle Show in 2015, Born Free is California’s largest and most influential custom motorcycle show and Lords was one of the first Canadian Brands to be invited. Opening doors for partnerships and collaborations with some of America’s oldest and most respected motorcycle brands like: Corbin, BMC, TBR, Simpson, Bell, Heatwave & Espinoza’s Leather.
Following the cult like success of Lords of Gastown Motorcycle Life Style Brand comes Lords of Grasstown Cannabis Culture Brand. In 2013 the Grasstown Brand was launched as a passion project by Tyler Hazelwood with a focus on a collection of simple clean yet edgy street wear apparel & products including a CBD soap line with a nod to Fight Club.
