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
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

We love our bow ties and like to sport them for any occasion. Bow ties can amp up any outfit. Most men cringe when they hear the word bow tie or you hear “I am not wearing that!” Well, listen up, if you are hipster enough to rock a ‘stache or beard, you can most definitely rock a bow tie. There are so many different options available from patterned, solids, different materials such as wood, fabric, and even feathers. We are sure you will find the right one to suit
In its 3rd season, this years PARK Show is sure to be an amazing one! Being held Saturday May 23, 2105, this show has not disappointed in previous years as being one of the premiere fashion events to go to in the city. Fashion alumni as well as new to the fashion scene designers will showcase their collections in a two part fashion show. There is nothing more thrilling than sitting at a show, when the light turn down, the music starts and the models start strutting their stuff on the runway. It’s
Growing up in a smaller community, I (Jason) went to school with some legit ranch kids. Let’s call them cowboys. I remember my first day moving to said community, I saw these classmates wearing full attired: cowboy boots, hats, and of course Wranglers. Now, these kids didn’t really understand or embrace a young budding style guy, so I always associated these jeans with getting pushed into a locker or called a variety of colourful names (you take a guess). Fast forward 10 years later (okay, maybe a little longer) and a
There’s no doubt about it, the winter chill is here, and if you’re in the market for a new winter coat you will be overwhelmed with choice. We are both looking for winter coats ourselves and have been struggling, what length, what colour, what weight? Here are a few things to ask yourself before you hit the stores (or possibly make a bad purchase): 1.How many jackets do you already have and what do you need (and can afford)? Winter coats are expensive! Wouldn’t it be great to have as many

Originally posted in 24 Hours Vancouver February 25, 2014 Many men shy away from patterns — and we can’t understand why. Maybe they don’t want to stand out or to look gay if they aren’t? Maybe they worry that it won’t suit their body type? Or maybe these men don’t know what to wear with a bold pattern?
