VICTORY Barbers and Brand Suspender Collaboration

We love doing collaborations with our friends and that is certainly true this time around as we launch our VICTORY Barber Suspenders! Available through our site or through any VICTORY Barber location, these limited edition, made in Canada suspenders are as casual as they are formal leaving the wearer to decide their own style. We've been working with VICTORY since the beginning and are privileged to call them our friends.

They opened in 2011 and have only increased the number of full time barbers, all of whom are well trained and well versed in the trade....

Casual C&T Bows in the TC

Last week, Richard Watts reported on the new casual nature of the bow tie, in the Times Colonist. Front and centre for the piece were a few casual Cursor & Thread Bow Ties in the shape of the popular Bike Bow, the Flannel Polka and the old faithful Salt'n'Pepper. We love reading the paper, especially when it talks up the liberation of our blessed bows: "...bow ties are moving beyond the traditional, dressy silk. Patterned cotton, wool and various fabrics blended with polyester and nylon are making a show in the bow tie." Of course, bows still belong at formal dressy events, no question - it just seems more and more acceptable to also see them on weekends, with untucked...
