Walking down the stairs to the newly re-opened Club Monaco men’s shop on Bloor st. feels almost forbidden for a girl. The hall way filled with real books, old posters and charming little treasures that looked like they were collected over the years from traveling all over the world. Wooden floors, ethnic rugs, smell of leather and whiskey makes me feel like I just stepped into a real gentlemen’s club; but this club is not just for men.
The shop is warm and welcoming, filled with old cabinets that house beautiful clothes. Every corner of this small space houses a surprise; vintage watches, handmade ties, beautiful leather shoes and soft cashmere.
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.

Having the entire long weekend to go through the website and drool over some of the pieces, I thought it would be great idea to share some of my favorite parts about Mr Porter. Besides having the usual … Continue reading Well Hello Mr. Porter!
I always found it a bit too hard to pack my suitcases back when traveling back home from a shopping trip. There’s always issues with weight restrictions or running out of space which usually means buying a new suitcase to bring all the new goodies home. Somehow Mr.BBM did not have this problem. This is what we left behind when we checked out from our … Continue reading Hurricane BBM Hits Florida!
