We love celebrities and quite possibly the only thing we love more than them is what they wear. Celebrity style has been a phenomenon in the women’s market for decades and is an obvious trend that is transitioning towards men. North American men have finally started taking a vested interest in the way they dress a trend that can be attributed to one single fact, the male celebrities they admire.
With the Toronto Film Festival in full swing, celebrity sightings have become common place. From Bill Murray joyriding about town on his bicycle to Adam Sandler grabbing a bite at the Thompson Dinner, A-list celebrities are everywhere and so are the paparazzi that stalk them.
With candid celebrity street style photos popping up daily we thought it would be interesting to approach the topic of style from the other side. We reached out to some of our in-house style experts to pick a celebrity they love and then an outfit that they’d love to style them in. From Denzel Washington to Chris Evans, here’s what they came up with.
The red carpet style competition is notoriously stiff. Full time teams dedicated to the “look”, relationships with the most acclaimed designers, back-up attire for every event- it seems impossible for anyone (who isn’t an A-lister) to keep up. Except for us. We have every affair attended to, day to night, power lunches to black tie soirees. Slim fit suiting, creative details, trends and formalwear covered- for slickly understated attire to coolly stand apart from the crowd.
Not all sales are created equal and we’re here to prove it. While other retailers pull out stock from five years ago, we’re proud to say that our sale includes current, in-season stock.

Gentlemen, gentlemen.. Wool is hardly a hot weather textile- even if it is cashmere. Warm climate dressing doesn’t immediately imply casual, especially in the context of an office environment. Choosing attire for these balmy, humid days is actually a simple proposition. You don’t need to change your style- merely need to adapt it to current conditions. For suiting, choose pieces made of lighter textiles and hues. If the office allows for more flexibility, we have sharp options galore; de-constructed jackets with short-sleeved shirt and tie combinations, and many, many chinos- in a striking array of colours. Staying cool, while looking accomplished is getting easier day by (scorching) day. Drop by the store or shop online for this season’s latest styles, not to mention our renowned Summer Sale.
With the growing popularity of Without Prejudice in our stores, we only thought it fitting to bring in the man himself, Mr. Jason Gerrard, CEO of Without Prejudice to give you a little history on the brand and why it’s one of our fan favourites. As Jason mentions in the video, some of the best things about WP are things you can’t see like the half-canvas lining and sweat guards. It’s pretty much all the “stuff” hiding between the garment you see and it’s colourful lining. However, if what you can see is indication of the level of detail and craftsmanship they offer then you can be quite confident that you’re truly getting a quality product at an unbeatable price.
WP offers that tailored slim-straight look ideal for that athletic guy who’s got that fuller chest, arm and legs. It’s also the only suit brand we carry that offers a Drop 8, which essentially refers to the jacket to pant ratio. Most brands offer a drop 6 or 7 which means that if you’re a 42 jacket you’ll get a 35/36 pant. With a Drop 8 you’d get a 42 jacket with a 34′ pant, giving you that perfect inverted “V” look.
