We wanted to jump on to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. Producer Peter is officially a dad and we thought what better time to wrap up this season than now! I want to thank you all for listening to a show about clothes, during a time where wearing pants have been optional. This show celebrates style and the people who take the time to dress with intention. If it wasn’t for your downloads each and every week we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. We hope to see you back here in the new year but until then stay safe and stay stylish. Thank you!

Today I chat with Shawn McKenzie (@ShawnMcKenzie89), host and reporter at Sportsnet.

I believe Shawn is one of the most stylish guys around the NHL community. His TV outfits are often the talk of social media as people often comment on his bold coloured suits, large peak lapels, and his slim silhouette. There is a method to his madness and today I get the privilege to take a behind-the-scenes look. Today on the show Shawn and I chat about the Leafs new dress code, what he thinks about when putting together an outfit for TV, and how the game of hockey should start embracing fashion.

Ep. 40 - How I started the Mr. Cavaliere Menswear Brand with Andrew Coelho
This week’s episode will be a little different. I’ve had a couple of you direct message me on Instagram asking how and why I started the Mr. Cavaliere menswear brand. So I thought what better way to answer this than to go into the archive and pull out a conversation I had with Andrew Coelho (@mrandrewcoelho) Andrew is the host of the Andrew Coelho Show and the designer behind Monte & Co. Andrew interviews some of the most exciting and inspiring fashionprenuers in the industry and I was lucky enough to be one of them. Please note, that this was recorded back in July of 2020 as I was fresh off the official launch of the brand, so some of the strategies I mention have changed but my mindset has stayed the same.
