“Charles Chan Kent’s C. Kent & Co. and his Vancouver Shirt and Overall Manufacturing Co. became Aero Garment Ltd. in 1925 and began to market nationally. He built a hundred thousand sq. ft. factory not far from Chinatown in 1958 and became one of the first to manufacture permanent-press clothes in Canada.” Excerpt from Saltwater City: Story of Vancouver’s Chinese Community By Paul Yee
