So, I went to Buckler the other day and upon arrival I was given a glass of vino and asked this, “What would you like to dress our male models in? You choose the clothes and they will put them on.” Oh really. Boy, remove your shirt.
Suddenly, Tuesday night got real interesting. Or was that just in my mind? Anyway, I waltzed around the store, pulled stuff off the rack and said, “This and this and this and maybe this. Oh yeah, and this.” As I did that, the male models stripped down in the change rooms and after each outfit was assembled, they were paraded out to the neighbouring brick lanes for fierce posing. Don’t you think they look good?
It’s a known fact that my man has better style than me. I’m usually wearing laundry while he sports a three-piece from Holt Renfrew. This fact alone makes it difficult to shop for him as I’m never quite sure if I’m buying something, well, cool enough. However, after my little modeling play date, I have some stylish secrets up my sleeve that will be revealed next time we take a stroll along Queen West.
Things I think would look good on my better half include:
• The Brandt Cardigan in old white and grey melange $230 (top right)
• Liddell Hood in black or grey $210
• Droopy Longs $295
• The Link Plaid Jacket $450
What I want:
Mies Slip Over $170
A dapper vest for boys looks super hot on girls
If the credit card debt is nauseating then maybe opt for a box of Sexy Bastard undies for $35. There’s a dance that goes with those snug trunks. Ask your lover to do the “Sexy B”.
Dress your man. Buckler is located at 700 Queen St. West. You can check out more deets here.
