loding-toronto-store-guide-14-introWe were shopping with one of our upcoming models as he said, “this store is great!” We explained that it’s not the store but the style that matters. We have never walked through a store and thought everything was in style and dapper. It’s the same reason we don’t recommend brands because everything under a certain brand may not be dapper stylish.

This could be a good time to throw back to the Dapper Basics that should be in your wardrobe. We published these in our original style Guides now found on Pinterest.
