Why do we want casual cool this blazing summer? Cause, we are amazing individuals. We are fun and crazy. We are party people and adventure loving. Our lives are going a mile a minute. Never a second to spare, always doing something we adore. And that’s why we need wardrobes that are easy and can keep up with us. A staple summer outfit includes a tank to beat the heat and some do it all in, skinnies. A famous poet and musician by the name of Jim Morrison, lived most of his career in one pair of leather pants. He changed his shirt every now and again, but his pants had just as much fun as he did. Nuts. Life is complicated enough, why do we want to waste it by wearing things that aren’t casual, cool and comfortable? Come on down to Lavish & Squalor, where we’ll pair you with the best fitting skinnies and some awesome tanks to live in this summer.

life + style, available at Lavish&Squalor 253 Queen Street West Toronto.


Since 2004 Brixton has been producing high quality hats for a good price out of sunny Southern California. Drawing influence from the skateboard, music and art scene, Brixton is able to assemble a vast line of products that cover some serious ground. That is to say if you have a head, Brixton makes a hat for you. Just finished watching an entire season of Mad Men and need to start wearing fedoras? Easy. We have an offering from Brixton that we can pitch to you. “Skate or die!” you say? No problem, because Brixton makes mesh back hats that are as sick as you like them. The crux of all this is very simple: whether you know it or not, if you want a hat you need a Brixton. We just got a whole truck load of the new stuff and it’s fantastic.   Stock list includes an array of Lewis shirts, shorts, swim trunks, long & short sleeve button ups, felt & straw Fedoras, Gains, corduroy Clark snap backs, felt Tillers, Broods & Busker hats. Brixton always goes quick here, so get in here and snatch it up while you still can.

"...if you have a head, Brixton makes a hat for you." Bring us your head and let's find your perfect match in our Hat Shoppe or click this photo to check out more new Brixton hat selections, showcased on our Mens Hats page.
