Yonge Street in Toronto is a very long street. I ventured a little further north from Eglington, and was pleasantly greeted by some beautiful neighbourhood stores. Sometimes we need to take the time to explore the cities we live in.

On this trip I wore a periwinkle blue jacket, which I have been having the hardest time finding complementary pant colours for. I settled on a light cotton grey and teamed it up with a suede beige boot with a contrasting sole. This gives it a smart-casual appeal.

Recommended: Ermanno clothing for men. I went in here and experienced hospitality like I have never experienced before, and I wasn’t there to shop. Thoughtfully selected sportswear, with a specialty in Master Bespoke Tailoring. Put them on your list to at least visit.

Black & White. Every time I hear the term ‘Black & White’ I think of MJ and his song. What a great artist, who has left us with some memorable songs. This day I teamed up black with white and added grey to soften the contrast. I could have easily used a black, white striped or patterned tee too. Which would have been a worthy alternative. But going with a plain grey tee set the tone I wanted, simple!

The waistcoat. The  waistcoat is so easy to wear year- round. I mean it always looks fantastic. Wearing a waistcoat automatically gives you style credibility, indicating to others that you know what you are doing. In the Summer months wear it alone. During the Fall/Winter wear it under a jacket, you really can’t go wrong. A waistcoat is versatile enough to also be worn with jeans. So it gives you as much mileage as a blazer.

At times finding the words to add to these images is difficult. How do you make a brown suit with a crimson veined check sound more interesting than it is. Or a silk summer paisley tie matched with a raspberry stripped shirt with a contrasting white collar sound alluring. I don’t know what to say, but i hope you find these images perhaps more appealing than this short description.

The Tan suit. Wearing a Tan suit is akin to acknowledging Summer is finally here. Tan suits, along with linen, let you know that the warmer weather has arrived and you are out to celebrate the fact. It’s the perfect day wear suit colour, and is easily coordinated with a whole host of colour combinations.

Shawl collar navy blazer. I own a variety of navy blazers, ones with silver buttons, gold buttons, and double-breasted. I like to add variety to my navy blazers, making them a little less predictable. So it’s good to find ones with a little something different. Adding a shawl collar into the mix makes things more interesting.

Tuxedo in the city. I just wanted to display how to use formal elements for an semi-formal look. Once you add colour, then that begins to change everything. Have fun with jackets and bow ties, that way you can add flair to your look. 

Bay Street, Toronto is the financial centre of Canada. The appeptite for luxury and well-made garments is met by a number of boutiques.

Dropped by Walter Beauchamp the tailors to wish him all the best for the future. This establishment has been around for 106 years, a great run, and will be closing it’s doors end of October 2014. It’s sad to see a historic business leave permanently. So if you are ever in the Wellington & University area of Toronto drop in. They are currently in closing mode, so everything is discounted.

Red blazer in the the heart of the Financial District of Canada; Bay Street - Toronto. This jacket truly brought a lot of attention this day; I had people stopping me to ask where I got it. Others looked on in admiration as we took these images. 

Bay Street, Toronto has a network of underground walkways called The Path. The Path is a network of pathways connecting each of the large towers. You have to go underground to experience it, there is food and shopping; it’s an underground mall.

Recommended: Pace for menswear in Brookfield Place. They carry an impressive collection of European designed clothing.

Denim & chinos. I decided to go a bit casual this time. A denim shirt is a staple for any man’s wardrobe. Personally I love denim shirts, you could almost have as many denim shirts as you do pants (jeans). Denim with chinos is always a winning combination. These days chinos come in a variety of fits and washes, almost as many as jeans. Look for a good fitting chino, one that is more relaxed than dressy for the urban jungle.

Dundas Square, Toronto, is a must place to reach when visiting the city. It is a venue used for entertainment, rallies, protests, festivals or just a meeting place. There is always something going on there.

Chambray jacket. I headed into the heart of the city or this occasion. The streets of #Toronto offer very interesting backdrops for images. It’s amazing how we can walk by these points of interest everyday, without paying too much attention to them. I hope you enjoy these images, because I really enjoyed taking them.

Check this out!. This is a cotton, blue and white check jacket; by #Tallia orange.This jacket really caught my eye, it was unusual enough but not too out there. It is perfect for an afternoon or early evening event. 

Thanks to the guys at #WESLODGE for allowing us to take some images inside. Looks like a great place to eat. Just look for the electrifying Yellow Door on King St. West in Toronto.

Recommended: @Leigh&HarlowCulture for menswear. They carry some really great items to incorporate into a look.

Apple green check pants (Ben Sherman) was the mood this day. I’ve had these pants since about April. I thought that they were just right for summer in the city. I wasn’t wrong. They’ll easily go with a navy blazer too, as effortlessly done with this stone colour by #Elie Tahari

Queen St, Toronto, again provided the backdrop for this shoot. I felt that we had to revisit this area of the city again to do it justice. Had a great conversation with Cedric of #Simon Carter. Definitely a destination when you explore Queen St West.

Recommended: #Simon Carter for menswear. Clothing from a British point of view.
