Playing In The Gentlemen’s Club: Club Monaco Men’s Shop On Bloor St. Re-Opens

Walking down the stairs to the newly re-opened Club Monaco men’s shop on Bloor st. feels almost forbidden for a girl.

The shop is warm and welcoming, filled with old cabinets that house beautiful clothes.

For the re-opening event, Garrison’s Barbershop and Harry Klien, a local barber and a professional shoeshiner,  each had a corner to add to provider their services to the shoppers. In the back corner, Proof Brands whiskey had set up a bar, offering great Canadian made whiskey. Somewhere in the back at the cash area the men behind this amazing visual adventure were hanging out.
