Why We love it: Fabgear 64

Memorabilia and vintage-inspired menswear shop Fabgear 64 in Wellington West is a fashion destination for any stylish Ottawa male with a serious case of sartorial nostalgia. Having rubbed elbows with the likes of everyone from Leslie Nielson, Charlie Sheen, James Taylor, Van Morrison to the cast of RENT (the Capital Oh crew scored a "souvenir" of RENT earrings leftover from the musical's merchandise from a past tour), the store's owner, "Uncle" Bob Cabana, knows how to dress and who to dress and the store reflects his breadth of fashion knowledge. Stop in for a fedora, Hawaiian shirt, or simply to peruse Uncle Bob's photo albums of famous faces. Bob's definitely got a story or two to share although he was pretty busy unpacking boxes of new stewardess bags during our visit, but we'll be back. We'll definitely be back, Uncle Bob. - S
