My reasons are as follows: 1) Strengh training and endurance: I ski in the winter plus hike and bike in the Summer. Working out reduces injuries and improves endurance and balance. 2) Preventative maintainence: cut down my chances of heart disease, cancer and other chronic lifestyle diseases that creep up on you when you get older and don't take care of yourself. 3) Vanity: I like looking good. People who meet me think I am younger than I am and I want to keep it...
Another vote for the vintage safety razor, brush and shave soap combo. I want to try a straight razor at some point.
If you are out of Toronto and have access to wheels, drive out to Oakville and check out Garvey's, they have a special on particular model of Jack Victor suit at $550. I would go for the navy or charcoal for starters. I second the recommendation on Allen Edmond shoes, they might be out of your price bracket but well looked after, they are an investment that will last for 15 years. BTW, Contgratulations on getting a job as an investment banker, I'm surprised they are...

St. Lawarence Market is our version of the Atwater Market and there is also Kensington Market as well.
Some shots from this past winter shot with a 40 year old Nikkormat and a 30 year old Nikon FM with real black and white film. Scans are taken from the negative and yes it was bitter cold out there when I took them.
Depends where, if I was commuting around downtown Toronto from April to November, a vintage Vespa so I can indulge in my inner mod.
I have four pairs of Chinos, used to have more when I was younger. Now I am wearing jeans (mostly dark rinse) more often as I become older (now 40). I work in a semi creative field so suits are for meeting with clients.
Just graduated from my Public Relations Diploma program in december which I have been doing at night at Ryerson University in Toronto and my last project ended back in November and it's been slog looking for work ever since people are a little hesitant to hire. I am doing some volunteering with a local arts group I founded three years ago and doing a lot of networking.
