Park and Finch Pop-Up Review

On Saturday, June 10 we hosted an in-store pop-up with Montreal eyewear brand Park and Finch. Their entire collection of both men's and women's eyeglasses and sunglasses were  available and given how hot and sunny it was, it turned out to be the perfect day for the pop-up. Their founder, Jack Kaladjian, was also here to answer questions and help customers pick out their next pair of glasses. Jack, originally from Toronto (from Victoria Park & Finch...hence the brand name) sourced some fine Montreal brew courtesy of Bierbrier which again, came in very handy on account of the heat. The event was such a success that we've decided to carry Park and Finch sunglasses for the rest of the summer! Check the out the pics below for a review of the event.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Dad's are synonymous with a few things. Embarrassing you in public, being late to pick you up, and wearing dad jeans. Father's Day is your opportunity to help ensure your dad's style is more elevated than the garden-variety dad. We've identified some ways you can keep the old man looking presentable this Father's Day with these stylish gift ideas (some of which are on sale!).

The Rudder Jacket from Woolrich is a classic design but is elevated with a subtle (very) camouflage print design. The light water and wind resistant technical fabric makes it perfect for outdoor activity.

The New Balance M1400JWH are an understated sneaker featuring the brands numerous comfort technologies. Made in the USA, these are built to last and Dad is sure to appreciate receiving a pair of these for Father's Day.

Is the old man still rotating the same three ties from 15 years ago? Upgrade his neckwear game with a new slimmer tie from Cursor & Thread. Made in Canada, there are two widths to choose from to keep him looking sharp.

Like ties, socks are a no-brainer when it comes to buying presents for Dad. OK, so they're not the most exciting present - but the truth is that he hates going shopping for them, so he's delighted every time his loved ones save him the trouble. You can't go wrong with the superior quality and distinctive socks from Anonymous Ism.

While he may already have a closet full of Hawaiian shirts, The White Palms Dylan shirt is a modern take on a classic style from 18 Waits that is sure to keep him looking put together. Destined to bring a definitive feeling of summer into his wardrobe, it can be worn buttoned up for business and buttoned down when he lets loose. 

A bag tailor-made for daily use at work or commuting, the Messenger Pocket bag from Woolfell is constructed from incredibly durable 10oz cotton canvas and features a padded sleeve to keep Dad's laptop safe while traveling. Oh yeah, it's also waterproof.

Portuguese Flannel "Word of the Land" SS17 Collection

The SS17 collection from Portuguese Flannel titled Word of the Land rediscovers the spirit of "alem mar" (beyond the sea) of Portuguese history. The landscapes of a colonial era and the poetry of its revolutions. Borders exist to be crossed.

There are motherly whispers, strapped to the land that tells us that only the biggest of the whirlwinds pulls the root from the tree.

As is always the case with their Spring/Summer collection, the shirts are lightweight, extremely soft and feature playful summer prints. We've just re-stocked some seasonal favourites and brought in a couple new short sleeve shirts in time for the summer. Check out the full collection here.
