Uncle Otis, an iconic Toronto menswear boutique, just celebrated its 25th Anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, the store has created a limited edition collection in collaboration with some of our favourite menswear labels, namely; Canada Goose, Universal Works, Tanner Goods & Maharishi. Luckily for myself, I was invited to shop and experience the beautiful UO 25th Anniversary Collection. I picked up two fabulous finds; the Uncle Otis 25th Anniversary Collection quilted chore jacket, made in collaboration with UK label, Universal Works, and a pair of the ever so popular Wings + Horn X Adidas WHXADI ZX Flux X Sneaker.
I am a huge fan of quilted jackets, especially for the fall season. They’re easy to layer and style in several ways. This piece from the UO 25th Anniversary Collection was made in collaboration with Universal Works. What I love about this jacket is the impeccable detailing, from the beautiful charcoal Italian wool outer shell, the rich brown buttons, to the unique ribbed collar. The jacket is the epitome of a luxurious classic style with modern detailing. The jacket is still very utilitarian, with multiple pockets, an Italian nylon inner. All around, this is a great piece for every guy, of every age group. The jacket retails for $415 CAD and is available in store and online here: http://tinyurl.com/zarnaap
This sneaker select was honestly super exciting! I am a huge fan of Wings + Horns, so when I saw these Adidas collaboration sneakers in store, I knew that these had to join my footwear arsenal. The Wings + Horns x Adidas collaboration is inspired by Japanese craftsmanship. The luxurious, almost deconstructed suede upper elevated the classic running shoe into a high fashion streetwear must-have. To me, what makes this shoe so special, is the stunning elevated stitch detailing at the backside of the sneaker. Needless to say, but they’re super comfortable as well. The sneaker retails for $230 CAD and can is available online here: http://tinyurl.com/jpx6rmo
I personally think Uncle Otis’ 25th year in business, is a huge indication of the excellence of their selection & service. I congratulate the retailer on their success and for making a positive change in the Toronto menswear market.
