Sir Style.

Sir Ian Mckellen via Mark D. Sikes blog

Currently obsessing on this timeless pic of Sir Ian Mckellen taken back in 1964.
Dashing eh, even before he was Gandalf or Magneto he looked very much the 'Sir'

It's taken this to make me post again. Must find a way to get a box of these bubble gum flavoured macs. Yo Mr. Elbaz! hook a brother up!

The Junction Flea.

Checked out the Junction Flea market this Sunday and it was GREAT!
I'm a very happy chap when I find a lot of things I like in one place - vintage, artisans, great coffee/treats, and good vibes. This is just the kind of community driven event that Toronto needs more of.

damn, I wish I bought this.. 

 I love these little jars with plants, rocks and lichen in them 

Didn't mean to get the dude on the right in the pic but it's perfect!

You can even get your fortune read, in a gypsy caravan :) 

wanted to try Manual Labour's coffee but the machine was temporarily down :(

They also served tea through this neat filtering thingie, cool or what!

cute little guys from 1% talent 

The icing on the cake that made my day was that they had a West Indian booth that served doubles!!! whaaa!!! nough' said!

Casual Friday.

via Barena

Although I visit a few blogs/websites on men's fashion I haven't really been inspired by much of anything lately. That is till I read this post on the fab blog A Continuous Lean on Venice based men's clothing company Barena. Simple, uncomplicated, refined Italian fashion, now that I can get into. Something I very much respond to is that the pieces can be combined to create effortlessly stylish looks by men of any age. I might not be able to afford Barena but they have inspired this Canadian to think in Italian.

My Ultimate Style.

I would wear anything from Missoni's Spring 2013 line. All Day. All Night.

Summer Haven.

I still manage and maintain my parent's garden in the suburbs. I've been doing it for over 15 years and every time I visit I see new and wonderful things! So far this year robins and cardinals have nested, and a wild bunny seems to have taken up residence as well. It's kinda neat to know that something that started off as a boring suburban patch of grass has turned into a little 'garden of earthly delights'. I often feel like I don't participate enough in creative endeavours but when I see this little garden it makes me feel like I do alright.

Robin's nest. All babies have hatched and have long flown the coupe.

Cardinal's nest, we're currently waiting for these eggs to hatch, any day now I think.
