It’s hard to believe that NYFWM just wrapped up! I am excited to be back home in TORONTO. Oh boy, last week in New York was very hot and humid. It was SS17 for NYFWM. It was the 3rd season since they launched this particular Men’s Fashion Week in NYC. I have been a faithful attendee every year since its launch in 2013. This year’s season of New York Men’s Fashion Week has got to be one of my favorite Fashion Weeks by far. Every time I visit New York, every moment is very memorable for me.
The first day I arrive is always extremely busy for me, with many shows, fittings, meetings and parties to go to. I already had a busy week just before this trip, with last minute fittings and showroom appointments in Toronto. On my last visit to showrooms in Toronto I went to the House of Dalla. There, I had finally found something I have been wanting for a while. I just had to get this white suit. Getting the perfect white suit has been on my list recently. Lucky for me I am a sample size so I did not even have to do any alterations to the suit. Also had pleasure carrying this amazing BriefCase by passavant and lee from NY.
I didn’t have a lot of time so not having alteration done was great. But, if anything, I could always have a few tweaks here and there for the suit if I ever wanted to. Like I always say, Gentlemen, never underestimate the power of tailoring and a good alteration. There is nothing else like having a suit made for you.
This season, I decided to stay at the same hotel as last time since the service was so amazing last I stayed there. This time I did things a little differently and I had decided to drive down to New York from Toronto. It was the first time that I drove down there and what a fun little road trip it was. I made a lot of stops on my way there so it took me nearly a full day to get there.
