Here in Canada, we have some pretty exceptional talent contributing to the menswear game. Yet more often than not, I find myself constantly having to justify why people should invest in brands and designers born right here on home turf. Supporting something that is made or born in Canada is always great. In doing so, we’re able to not only foster local talent, but also retain it within our own national borders, further supporting the growth and success of Canada’s fashion industry. This argument is a given.

But, if you look at just the design and quality of these products and put any nationalistic opinions aside, you’ll notice that our homegrown brands are just as good, if not better, than any of the ones you’ll find outside our borders. From outerwear, to accessories, to swimwear, Canada has produced some incredible brands that can easily stand on their own when it comes to the merits of a great product. Because I believe there must always be a discussion on local talent, I have a series on MRLANCECHUNG.com to highlight the best men’s designers in Canada. Ours is a country that must continue to raise awareness for Canadian brands in order to support domestic growth and further cement ourselves as a world class fashion hub.

Because we both have a mutual love for food and beautiful accessories, I decided to drop by the Metro grocery store to highlight his products alongside some fresh produce and flowers as a celebration of spring! Here, we talk about why you should invest in the little details, the marriage of fashion and technology, and the state of the Canadian fashion industry.  Continue Reading…
