TSBMen & Garrison Bespoke A Gentlemen’s Evening for Men of Style in Toronto 27 May 2014.
Walking around Toronto every day, I didn’t know there exists a contingent of guys into menswear. Besides TSBMen founder Dan, who looked dashing in his burgundy suit, I was amazed how stylish and creative others were.
Here are the notable ones:
Jonathan Cavaliere, who runs the eponymous blog Mr Cavaliere, dressed in a denim blazer. The guy is really passionate for menswear as he started blogging a few years ago when he was 20 and is now entering men’s styling.
My jaw dropped when I learned of the Gordon Dri and Dylan Carvalho’s resourcefulness as these dashing guys find their style at thrift stores. I’ve read about such guys on blogs but it was eye open to see them in person and Gordon Dri’s double breast suit (above) is a thrift store Ralph Lauren that fits him like a glove and didn’t even need alteration. More surprising is that Gordon and Dylan, in blue blazer, are only 22 years old University of Toronto engineering students and they have even started their own school group called Art of Menswear to share their interest for menswear with other students.
Tim O’Hearn (I think) was dressed to perfection above in Suitsupply navy double breast and black tassel loafers. He’s a case of following your passion as Tim is a salesman at SuitSupply Toronto, which usually recruits salesman from other brands but he got the job purely based out of his passion for menswear even without prior clothing sales experience. He even shared with me a few trick to hold up my shirt sleeve when they are too long for my jacket - slide the sleeve up and roll a rubber band on the forearm to lock in the length until I bring it to alter.
Look out for entrepreneur and music agent Timothy Eccles at TSBMen soon as he was dapper with an edge, adorned by jewellery and I learn that TSBMen will be doing a story on the man.
I gotta thank TSBMen for organising this and allowing guys in Toronto to get together. I hope he does it again in Toronto but I urge you guys to participate an these events Dan hosts, they are inspirational and lots of fun
