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.
Episode 1: Pre-Makeover
Episode 2: Full 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.

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.

Lyle & Scott’s Fall 14 collaboration with genius Glaswegian Jonathon Saunders has resulted in vibrant pieces that work on or off the green. Case in point- a carefully crafted Merino wool, crew neck sweater. A muted front complete with golden eagle insignia, gives way to a surprising contrast dot print at back. Balance the motif with simple, slim denim and on-trend sneakers. READ MORE
