The Top Coat Post

December 18, 2015 1 Comment

In Toronto, we get the benefit of living through the four seasons…which means I get to wear this badass top coat.


For years, the cold weather coat has been known to be utilitarian and uninspired on the style front; simply doing its job – protecting us from frostbite and frigid temperatures. Yes, I agree, when temperatures dip way below, Torontonians don’t care – we’ll throw on that ugly parka and be on our way. But until then, this top coat is my go-to before the dreaded parka.

IMG_0991-2A lot of fashion enthusiasts are calling today’s men’s style something of a renaissance. British fabrics, country styling and fresh details – everything from herringbones and donegal tweeds to windowpanes and plaids. Apparently, we dress like the Rat Pack…I’ll expand more on this and fashion in the 60s for my future, strategically undone bowtie post.

Until next time.
