I'd rather go local and get a pair of Vass from Jokb or buy Carmina from LF where there are no surprises in pricing anyways. Everytime I've popped in staff have been friendly, and there is always something beautiful to gawp at anyways.

Thank You guys for the kind words and encouragements. I appreciate it very much.

 

@Cityplace  @emidyl I'm definitely working to make that happen in our new shop very soon, I'll keep you updated.

 

@Jaackytung We now carry EG and most certainly will be hosting trunk shows very very soon and other special surprises and collaboration with EG. I can't give details now, but I will certainly do once everything falls through in due time.

 

All the best!

Thanks!

 

We got our first EG shipment since  2 months ago, and we've got quite a reasonable amount of stock now, but the batch 2 shipment coming in about 3 weeks will include 4 dover styles and colors, 4 Galways and more. A decent number of the incoming models have been reserved, but there are still sizes available

 

Cheers!

Hey guys,

Saw a pic of Justin Trudeau with his jacket open and saw a Harry Rosen tag. If I had to guess, I'd say Samuelsohn or Canali. Anybody else notice that his suits fit him well?

What suit? I'm always staring at his hair.:inlove:

This an old article but interesting, nonetheless.  5.5% duties on shoes?  Yes, please!

I remember that article, I think the bulk of the remaining footwear industry caters to the safety shoe/boot market with Viberg and Dayton also selling the streetwear crowd with their service boots and I think winter boot makers too out of Montreal as well. Otherwise we're getting ripped off every time we buy pair of Loake, Vass, Carminas, even Nike running shoes. It's bullshit.

Given his Montreal roots (and riding), I would hope it was a Samuelsohn. :)

Tariffs rarely make any sense at the best of times, but particularly when there is no real domestic industry to protect.

Speaking of boots, any recommendations for a good cold-weather boot for Toronto? I'm not really looking for something suitable for work (e.g. bal boots, etc.) but more something warm and waterproof that I would wear while walking the dog, shovelling snow, etc. I've tried to make do without real winter boots for several years now, but given the previous few winters, I think the time has come.

post #1545 of 4449

I just bit the bullet and bought a pair of sorels last year.  Style be damned, those things are life savers when it comes to shovelling.  I used to wear sneakers but the toes aren't liking that too much anymore.
