Since blue became the new black, guys just can’t seem to get enough. Whether you’re looking for your first or adding to your roster, blue suits are a no-brainer. They are easy to wear, pair and are practically good for almost any occasion. From office wear, to your best friends wedding, the blue suit is for men what a black dress is to women.

Here are some of our latest Spring/Summer arrivals from LAB, Tiger of Sweden and Tombolini.

Last month, British vlogging sensation and film maker Ben Brown arrived in Toronto as part of a special project sponsored by the Canadian Tourism Commission titled @ExploreCanada. The project had Ben flying all over the country from Toronto to Vancouver and many places inbetween (click here to watch the series). While in Toronto, he payed a lengthy visit to the historic Distillery District where he happened to stumble upon our store and possibly his #1 Canadian fan, aka our store assistant manager Mallory Hood.
Practically knowing everything there was to know about Ben, Mallory jumped at the opportunity to help him update his wardrobe. As a former competitive paddler Mallory introduced him to everyone favourite brand Zanerobe and some great button-up shirts by Johnny Love and Outclass, all great brands to complement his jet setting lifestyle.

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.

AMAZING-RACE-MAKEOVER-Mickey

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.

AMAZING-RACE-MAKEOVER-pete

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.

Celebrity Style Makeover

September 9, 2014

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.
