Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come: Movember is over! Well, almost.

In preparation for the end of "No-shave November," we thought we'd suggest some traditional (and other not-so-traditional) methods of hair removal. Take your pick!
Bring the barber shop to your very own bathroom with a safety razor like the one photographed above from Truefitt&Hill, and Cremo Company shaving cream and moisturizer: dubbed "The astonishingly superior shave cream." But don't take their word for it - order the set and see for yourself!

If astonishingly superior shave cream isn't your style, there's always this stuff: 
J&D's bacon shaving cream will leave your skin feeling great and smelling like delicious bacon. Who could possibly resist?

For a real treat, however, we think you should visit our friends at Garrison's for an old school barber shop shave. 
Which ever way you cut it, just be sure to bid your 'stache "Adieu!" and make sure to thank it for it's month long mission to raise money for a good cause.

This week we thought we'd give a nod to hats. We also thought we'd try out some awful puns involving heads and headgear.

If you're not a fan of hats of the brimmed variety, need we remind you that we've got cozy ones, not unlike the ones worn by the fella on the bottom-left. Stop by the shop and have a look for yourself!


We've got plaid, dots, and stripes! Come in and stock-up on a few new colours and patterns.

Ask about some matching ties, and give someone (or yourself. Everyone needs to treat themselves from time-to-time) the gift of style this holiday season.

It's cold out there! With some places already reporting snowfall, we think it's about time to find yourself a warm winter coat - perhaps even one with purple details?

Wool and cotton scarves have just arrived at the shop! They come in about a million (Well, maybe not a million. But still, quite a few) colours, and they're the perfect accessory this winter.
Stop by and pick one up for yourself, and maybe a few more to wrap up and give to your buddies as gifts this holiday season!

We're giving a nod to the ladies this week, for setting a trend that we think us gents can certainly relate to: athletic gear. Mixing sportswear with more tailored; less casual outfits has been making appearances in men's fashion for years now (not too long ago, we even posted about wearing sneakers with a suit). However, we really like the ladies' fresh take on the trend: pairing their athletic gear with very feminine outfits, like track pants with stilettos (above), or snapbacks with cocktail dresses (below). 
If your lady hasn't already raided your gym bag for your old sports jerseys or baseball hats, we think your should definitely invite her to do so. Might we suggest giving your jerseys a wash before offering them to her? Or better yet, take her shopping at your favourite sports store. It might be your only chance to share clothes without it being weird.

We're always on the lookout for style inspiration. Recently, we found it in the book Cycle Style. Here's a behind-the-scenes video featuring the making of some of the photos in the book:

Naturally, we decided to create a look of our own.

For all of you fellas out there who are Movember-ing it up right now: you're half-way there!

It's the two-week mark, and we're sure that many of you have managed to grow some sweet 'staches. Naturally, maintenance is key, so might we suggest getting your hands on some Man's Face Stuff Moustache Wax.

What a better way to show-off your Movember moustache than to keep it tamed and styled! And when Movember's over, or for you beard-y guys out there, Man's Face Stuff also sells Beard Balm!

We just can't believe how much our buddy Carter has grown. Time has just flown by.

Forgive us for reminiscing -  we're feeling a bit sentimental today.

Our new canvas bags with leather details are here! They're perfect for city commuting, guys who can't be bothered to cary a large backpack around everywhere, and as a small carry-on when travelling. Basically, they're pretty much perfect in general.
Stop by the shop and have a look! They also come in other colours!

On this supposed "unseasonably warm" weekend, we'd like to remind you of a time with windburn-free bike rides through the city, days when it didn't get dark at 5:30 in the afternoon, and weather forecasts that didn't involve windchills: Springtime. 

More importantly, we'd like to remind you that just because the weather gets gloomy, doesn't mean your wardrobe has to as well. We say, keep wearing floral prints and bright colours through the Winter!
Just don't forget to layer with (an equally bright) sweater. After all, it's still a Canadian Winter, so it's still bloody cold out!

Too early? 

We know the holidays are coming up in less than two months, so rather than start with gifts you can buy other people, we thought we'd show you a present you can buy yourself: The Whisky Advent Calendar

Now, instead of the traditional advent calendar that lets you count down the days before Christmas with chocolate - you can count down with whisky! Holidays can't get much happier than that. And as an added bonus, one of the bottles contains a sample of 50 year-old single malt Scotch that usually costs $550 for a full bottle. 

Buy yours today, and maybe one for a friend, too. Spread that holiday cheer and warmth (from the whisky.)

(Unfortunately this gift idea will have to be for our friends across the border only as they do not ship to Canada. Hey, no one says you can't make your own!)

We've got gloves to keep your hands warm this season. They're functional, and they're sure to add a great finishing touch to your Winter wardrobe.
Stop by the shop and check out all of the new styles and colours we've got!

We're big fans of doing things for a good cause. We also, understandably, get excited when we can incorporate philanthropy with fashion and style. The Tweed Ride is a perfect combination of both. Who wouldn't want to look good while raising money for a good cause?
Although Toronto's Tweed Ride isn't until September, we thought it would be a good idea to get you inspired to sign up next year (and up your 'sartorial game'), or to get dressed and go off to do good things - especially with the holiday season fast-approaching!
