Tag Archives: Men’s Trends


Age ain’t nothing but a number, especially when we’re talking about style and fashion. That’s why we feature key trends and showcase how they can be adopted no matter how old or young you are. In this article we turn our attention to summer sport coats because they are versatile, easy to wear and a definite wardrobe must-have. You can easily dress them up or dress them down to suit any occasion and with so many styles available in-store you can rest assured that there is one perfect for you.

20s – The Graduate

Respect the investment into your education and play the part by incorporating a sport coat into your college wardrobe. You can keep it young and stay fresh by layering it with a hoodie and graphic tee. Drop crotch pants will give you that urban edge that promises to step up your game. 

30s – The Free Agent

It doesn’t matter what you do, what matters is what you look like you could do. Nothing says “smart, stylish, and professional” better than a sport coat. Stripes over a white oxford-style shirt, paired with a good-fitting pair of jeans and clean white sneakers makes you look accomplished while you’re still accomplishing.

40s – The Shark

You don’t have to work on Bay Street to look and feel like a shark. But you can wear a sport coat with dark denim to intimidate all the other fish. Style it with a pink shirt and microprint tie and they won’t even see you coming. And then by the time they get a look at your killer shoes, it’ll be too late.

50s – The O.G.

There are no rules for the O.G, except maybe knowing when to leave the gun and take the cannoli. A double-breasted sport coat is not only your ticket to the big boys club, but it puts you at the head of the table. In fact, jackets like these are reserved for people like you.

New Arrivals

Yesterday we featured a veteran, today we bring you a great young designer that has really stepped up to the plate in the Canadian men’s fashion arena in the last few years. Christopher Bates self title brand was featured as one of the top six leading menswear designers in Canada by Sharp Magazine in September 2009, and was subsequently the only menswear designer in the Mercedes-Benz StartUp Program back in 2012, where he was also awarded with a sponsored show at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto.

While CB is back on runway this week at World MasterCard Fashion Week (Wednesday, October 23 @ 4pm) to showcase his SS ’14 collection we’re happy to announce that we’re officially carrying a curated selection of his great Fall ’13 collection in-stores now.
