You can’t have a conversation about legendary radio personalities without mentioning these guys- Humble & Fred, a Toronto-based Canadian radio show, featuring co-hosts “Humble” Howard Glassman and Fred Patterson, has aired on a variety of Canadian radio stations since 1989. These guys are the definition of Canadian radio royalty.
Though the industry has been good to their careers it hasn’t been that good to their personal style. Satisfied with relaxed jeans and polos just doesn’t cut it, especially when you invite founder Melissa Austria on the show to talk about her passion for menswear. Armed with sportcoats, tailored jean and some great shirts Melissa arrived on set determined to breath new life into the boys wardrobe. The end result, this awesome before/after makeover.
Devon Travis is not a complicated man. For him, it’s about the love of baseball, the Blue Jays and living the dream. But being a major leaguer means dressing like one. And with players like Danny Valencia running the style game it’s only fitting that Devon step to the up to plate. To guide him to greener pastures Sportsnet anchor Hazel Mae teamed up with our founder Melissa Austria to give Devon a makeover he’ll never forget. Press play to see how it all went down.
Meet Mickey and Pete, the most recent winners of “The Amazing Race Canada” as they appear on the Marilyn Dennis show for full style makeover with fashion stylist, Alexis Honce. Viewers fell for the best friends from Muskoka and their self described “fierce, homeless” look, but with a trip to Hawaii and some charity events and hosting gigs on the table they needed to get an updated streamlined look. Needless to say Alexis & and The Marilyn Denis show brought the boys to our shop in the Distillery District for their awesome makeover.
The Marilyn Denis Show x Amazing Race Style Makeover
Suit, Tiger Of Sweden: $879 Long Sleeve, Rogue: $110 Belt, Anderson’s: $150 Printed Socks, Smart Turnout Socks: $29
Mickey looked dapper in a cool twist on the traditional suit. Instead of a button down Alexis put him in a richly coloured Henley and switched out the wingtips for sneakers. Since Mickey loves wearing his hair long Sean pinned it up into a ‘man bun,’ that’s right on trend and the perfect compliment to his new outfit.
Wool Camo Scarf, Van Gils: $135 T-Shirt, Benson: $58 Jacket, John Varvatos: $598 Leather Belt, Strellson: $128 Black Jean, John Varvatos: $228 Printed Socks, Happy Socks: $15
Pete’s outfit is a little more casual with fitted, waxed denim pants and a funny mustache tee that played off his own love of facial hair. A cool jacket finished off the look. Sean lopped off a few inches of hair, and styled it with a sleek finish.
