When I have a shopping itch, I am not afraid to scratch it. So when I was informed of the news that Boys’Co, a contemporary  menswear retailer with 4 stores in Vancouver had just launched their online store in April 2015, I was thrilled. My excitement was great but I could hear a little sigh of exhaustion from my credit card because it knew it was about to endure some serious damage on BOYS’COnline.

This Canadian company has been around for over 31 years and is a proud family owned and operated business by father and son duo, David & Sam Goldman. I grew up in Vancouver shopping and was mainly outfitted in merchandise from Boys’Co—It was my go-to store for essential pieces with an urban and unique twist. The new online store allows me to live out my nostalgia of my West Coast life while keeping pace with my new Toronto life.

This gem carries some of my favourite labels like, Comme Des Garcons Play, Y-3, McQ by Alexander McQueen to even Zanerobe. I definitely will be satisfying a lot of my shopping itches online at www.boysco.com.

So gentlemen & significant others who are feeling a little generous, start your spending!

Surprise Homecoming






The Untitled heather white sweatshirt; Zara black leather-like joggers; ASOS black extra-long cotton tee; Nike Air Force 1 sneakers; Alexander Wang inside-out Rocco bag; Miansai Anchor Bracelet.

 

I made a surprise homecoming visit to Vancouver last week. I showed up at the front door of my parent’s place unannounced and just about gave my dear mother a heart attack. Tears of joy and shrieks of excitement and endless warm hugs ensued. It felt incredible to be home with my family again.

This time I only had 72 hours in town so I had to do as much as I could and when I say do I mean EAT as much home cooked food as possible. My mother even packed a little savoury treat for my trip back to Toronto that I preciously carried in my Louis V. carry-on and guarded it with my dear life while I went through security at the airport.

My trip to Vancouver was short but sweet. I may have missed a few folks this short trip around but to the handful of friends that I did catch up with I am so happy that we were able to pick up where we last left off. It feels as though I never even left town—now that’s real friendships.

Lastly, thank you Joanna from The Untitled Shop, this sweatshirt is undoubtedly a favourite new piece in my closet. Check out the new online shop today.

Until next time Vancouver, I’ll see you again soon.

On The Scene: Artscape Salon 2015






 Photos by Mauricio Calero.

 

Last week, alongside some of Toronto’s most inspired artists and creatives, I attended Artscape Salon, an annual fundraiser held at the beautiful Wychwood Barns.

The four-course dinner was delicious—Incredible actually! At one point I had the server take away my plate immediately so I wouldn’t be served seconds. The neatest part of the evening was the format of our guest speakers: 26 wonderfully talented individuals to be exact whom went from table to table for three rounds interacting with patrons to spark creative conversations… Kinda like speed dating but without the matchmaking part and cheesy pick up lines.

The evening concluded with sweet confections passed around the room while guests enjoyed a special performance by Toronto duo, Prince Innocence. Artscape Salon was a awesome event that brought together some of the city’s most visionary minds and I am very pleased to have been apart of such a fantastic occasion.

I’m already looking forward to next year!
