Originally posted on 24 Hours Vancouver.  The polka dot is back. No, we’re not going to look like we’re en route to a costume party dressed like a clown or the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. This time we’re seeing it in more subtle ways. And they’re popping up everywhere — socks, shirts, pants and sweaters. The key to pulling off this season’s go-to print is scale. Try a miniature version with a mostly solid look if you’re ready to dabble or go over-scale to make a big statement. This week,

Originally posted in 24 Hours Vancouver A short while back, we received an e-mail from a man who had recently shed a few pounds and was ready to treat himself to some new clothes. Like many men, he had never included a lot of colour into his wardrobe, but feels that now is the time. So, how do men do this? It can be scary for males to buy colour for themselves and the big question is: how much is too much? No guy wants to feel like a clown

Calgary Men, if you’ve never had a custom suit made, now’s the time. Many men believe that it’s too expensive or too slick for their taste, but fear not, the team at Indochino have the entire process worked out for you. First, they measure you. And no, it’s not like a sitcom episode with an inseam punchline. Trained staff get all of your measurements and build you a custom profile using their iPhones or iPads. Then, once your profile is built you start shopping. You have your choice of fabrics

Originally written for 24 Hours Vancouver by the Style Guys: It happened: it’s not warm enough anymore to go coatless. Not even a long-sleeved tee will suffice anymore — it is time to embrace the fall coat. Now before you dig through your storage closet for the heavy-duty wool and goose down, we encourage you to instead warm up through layers. A chic fall coat is a must for any stylish man and we recommend you have a couple of good light jackets on hand, roomy enough to layer

It’s always great when we receive a listener email. It’s like we’re a modern yet less buttoned-up Dear Abby! Hope we’ve helped. Dear Style Guys, I would love it if you would do a segment on where young women can find appropriate, yet fashionable pieces for the office. It’s hard to find a skirt in this town that isn’t thigh high, make me look old or cause me to miss a mortgage payment.  This is an on-going discussion with my professional female friends.  We don’t know where to shop or

The craze over the TV show Mad Men never seems to end. Everyone covets a fitted suit and skinny tie, but for a lot of stylish dudes this is where it stops. They forget that Mad Men is not only about the fashion, it’s also about the interior esthetics. After all, our homes are as much an extension of our style as our clothes. The mid-century mode you see in Mad Men is all about sophistication, clean lines and a refined esthetic. It is simple and uncluttered, and each quality

PLENTY opened up its first Alberta location in Calgary. We were invited to the launch and are thrilled to welcome another chic fashion retailer to Calgary! The more the merrier.

True, trends come and go. While it is always good to be current in fashion, it’s really not about what’s hot and new all the time, it’s about finding your own personal style. You don’t want to be that guy or girl that is walking around decked out in head to toe trends, dressed like a mennequin. Your personal style shows that you aren’t trying to hard… AKA a fashion victim. Inject YOUR personality into your clothing choices and you will make a statement no matter what is on-trend for

Converse and the Hudsons Bay have collaborated to create one of a kind kicks with the iconic Hudson Bay Stripe. This makes us very happy because we LOVE Converse and the Bay’s classic stripe. The combo makes for a fabulous statement to any outfit. Perfect for to amp up a fall outfit and to keep your tootsies warm as the shoe is made from the actual Hudsons Bay Blanket. Coming in 3 one of a kind styles, they will be available fall 2013. Prices range from $120-$140 and will be

Back to school time again (or as our brothers call it, ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”) and this year we had some fun on Global TV with fashions from H&M and the Gap Factory Store. We shared some Crossiron Mills Savings Secrets with viewers and had a lot of laughs working with the young’uns.   Alexandra wore bright and fun layers from the Gap Factory store. We loved mixing the dark blue camouflage print pants and the pink cardigan and shoes.   We went more rocker with Cassie
