It used to be that we would travel to shop. Unable to find our favourite designer brands in Calgary, we would forgo a lot of sightseeing, museums, festivals or workouts, instead carefully planning the shopping that needed to be done before returning home. However, the city’s fashion offering has come a long way and now with the hotly anticipated opening of Saks Fifth Avenue at CF Chinook Centre, we can find all the fashion goodies we need to stay on-trend and maybe even, vacation-ready before we go. It goes without

Originally written for SWAGGER – check them out here! Palm Springs our happy place. If you’ve ever been, you know that the moment you step off the plane and into the open-concept terminal, the desert air immediately calms you. We have been visiting Palm Springs together for over a decade, loving it not only as a mid-century design mecca, but also a place where relaxation is taken seriously. One of the most idyllic spots to visit in “Palm” is the must-see Parker Palm Springs. The glorious boutique hotel, formerly Merv

Whether you actually hit the slopes or not, who doesn’t love a little Apres-Ski? This weekend we were on the Global Morning Show giving tips on what you need to enjoy the winter splendor in comfort and style. Items included: Cocktails made using Kahlúa and Polar Ice Vodka, like the classic White Russian, the Mind Eraser and the Espresso Martini Outerwear and knits from Canada Goose – set to open at CF Chinook Centre Calgary on Friday Wine & chip pairings from Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi and Miss Vicky’s (see

In the past, we’ve explored the gift ideas that appeal to all kinds of dads, ones who dress up, enjoy fine wine or scotch, travel, and splurge on grooming products. This year, we’re giving our ideas for the other 2/3s of dads out there – the guys who prefer to be in the yard, get the guys over and BBQ. Don’t be confused, these are still Style Dads but these guys are more comfortable in the yard than they are at a martini bar. Here are clips from our recent press

It’s Juno’s weekend and everyone is planning their weekend music lineup, and hopefully their wardrobe. We Canucks love to show our Juno pride but we want to suggest that this weekend we evolve our Canadiana for a new, modern look. The Canadian Tuxedo We’re not going fishing people, update your denim-on-denim-on-denim for coloured jeans, mismatched washes and one of this spring’s hottest looks – lightweight denim. And always break it up with accessories. Plaid This one is actually pretty on-trend but it is a style that has become more hipster

  The Oscars are this Sunday and while we haven’t seen all (or hardly any) of the movies nominated, we are well prepped for the red carpet. Whether the fashion is on point or not, we love to see who is wearing what. It’s always interesting for us to see who takes a chance, who nails it and who takes a big bite of the red carpet. Here are a few of our faves from the last couple years (it was tough to narrow down) and who we are excited to see this year: Excited

Although last night’s Grammys were a bit of a miss for us, we did enjoy the red carpet (as always) and want to share our best dressed of the evening. Overall, there were several casual looks, some business suit realness and the odd outrageous look (mostly too out there for us to mention). We are all about expressing personal style, but pyjama pants and Hello Kitty do not belong on the red carpet. Here are top picks for Best Dressed: Carrie Underwood (Photo: Larry Busacca) Giving us sexy and elegant, this

Nobody is more excited about Zealander 2 than we are. Arriving in theatres on February 12, we have a pair of passes to see the film in Calgary after it opens, all we want is for you to send us your best BLUE STEEL pose. Tag us on instagram (@thestyleguysca) and follow us, and we’ll put you in the draw for the tickets. Not sure how to do BLUE STEEL? Check out the Blue Steel pose guide below. Happy Zoolandering!

The Groundhog stuck its head out this week and (in Calgary anyways) he didn’t see his shadow, so that means and early Spring! We already know that this has not been the harshest of winters and I think many of us are already itching to put away our winter garb and get on with Spring clothes. But don’t get too carried away – it’s not time quite yet. Before you pull out your linens and open-toed shoes we want to suggest a transition period; one that will keep you warm

Happy New Year! Made any new year’s resolutions? Sure, we all have good intentions in January but they drop off fast and furious. We were asked, what are top three style resolutions that you can recommend? A great question! Here are a few we think you can incorporate easily, painlessly and maybe even stick to. Only wear what fits you. Purge your closet and take out those clothes that don’t fit well or aren’t flattering on you. If you’re not ready to part with them because your other resolution is
