Generic Surplus: Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

Monday, October 22, 2012
As we all know, Generic Surplus is one of my favourite mens shoe lines. The LA based brand continually pushes the limits of shoe evolution to marry the street and dress styles. Their shoes are able to reflect the essence of LA's music, art, and fashion scenes.

For Fall/Winter 2012, my two favourite shoes are the Longwing and the Ledger Mid.

The Longwing mixed preppy, casual, and street, making it a great every day shoe.

The Ledger Mid can be dressed up or down - I know guys love versatility. The purple colour is amazing.

Generic Surplus can be found at various boutiques across Canada, including:

Heel Boy (Toronto)
Capsule  (Toronto)
The Bay  (Toronto)
House of Fashion / Voyashop (Montreal)
J2  (Vancouver)
Group Seven (Calgary)
Glam Slam (Edmonton)
Rebel Rebel (Victoria)

Event: Little Burgundy Spring 2013 Preview

Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Last week I attended the Little Burgundy Spring 2013 media preview at their new store on Robson.

Little Burgundy is the go-to destination for shoppers looking for branded footwear (and accessories) to rock on the streets or at the office. They have 30 locations across the country, and are able to provide a boutique feel in their locations. The updated Robson location boasts a custom lounge designed by the team at Vans OTW.

Even though Summer just ended, and I'd finally come to accept Fall (and all that comes with it: boots, socks, sweaters, scarves, hot chocolate...), seeing the Little Burgundy Spring'13 collection made me really excited for warm weather, bare legs, dresses with cool sneakers....

What month is it again?
