How to Assemble an Outfit 101 – The Toronto School for Gentlemen
The Toronto School for Gentlemen is an ongoing series of workshops on the art of living an elegant life, focusing on skills in dress, hygiene, etiquette, entertaining, conversation and more. In other words, a 21st century finishing school for men.
Our first session takes place Monday, September 30 at 8pm. “How to assemble an outfit” is intended for those men beginning their journey to building a wardrobe and will focus on the whys and hows of dressing well, including a dissection of the elements of an outfit, the rules of dress and long-term strategies for building a wardrobe. The session is priced at an affordable $25.
Your instructors are Jonathan Hagey, proprietor of Kingpin’s Hideaway and head writer of Kingpin Chic, a blog about gentlemen’s style, and Pedro Mendes, writer and broadcaster at CBC Radio specializing in men’s issues and menswear.
