Toronto Sartorialist/Holt Renfrew Party-ish!

I'll be in Toronto tomorrow (Wednesday the 22nd) and I'd love to meet some of my readers!

I will be at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street from 12:30 PM - 2 PM (on the menswear floor) on Wednesday afternoon.

Also tomorrow evening we will be having a very non-organized gathering at the bar in The Drake hotel (1150 Queen Street West), starting around 9:30 or 10pm.

Blogger ohyesohno said ... (9:59 AM) : 

We are looking very much forward to your arrival. I'll be at the Holts event tomorrow eve but the Drake sounds like a perfect place to end the night! If the weather cooperates, their rooftop patio might fit the bill nicely.
Happy travels!

An early welcome to Toronto. Hope to see you and looking forward to your book.


Blogger Pari said ... (1:47 PM) : 

Omigoodness, this is all very exciting! See you tomorrow at Holts! The question is; will you be taking pictures here as well? Toronto definitely has some good fashion that deserves to make it on The Sartorialist!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 PM) : 

Bring an umbrella. It's supposed to rain later this week in T.O


Blogger klandoni said ... (2:22 PM) : 

Yay! I'm working right down the street at the ROM. I'll pop in at lunch :)


Blogger swilek said ... (2:27 PM) : 

I'm soooo sad I will be out of town...I'm leaving Wed. am. I so wanted to see you! Enjoy your time in TO...beware: our garbage strike (city worker's strike actually) is still on so it might be a bit stinky and the parks will be a mess. But, I'm sure you will have a grand ole time in TO!!


Blogger Cathy Bartels: Artist, Designer, Screen Writer said ... (2:47 PM) : 

No, but Laguna Beach for a future photo op?! But, please, after summer so it's only locals...


Blogger maya said ... (2:53 PM) : 

oh shucks!
that's grand but i'm out on the west coast in Vancouver. no fashion out here so i won't even make a request. have fun in Tdot!


Anonymous Jasmin said ... (3:24 PM) : 

Yeah! But just to warn you, the city is going through a garbage strike right now, so it's filthy. If you ever choose to shoot in Toronto, which you should, the area around Holt is good - Bloor st., Queen St. West is good, Kensington Market area is good, and perhaps occasionally yonge and Dundas.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:28 PM) : 

We in Vancouver the most stylish of Canadian Cities are thoroughly disappointed that you are not coming to the warm sunny west coast.

Besides half the population of Ontario is out here


Anonymous carla said ... (3:34 PM) : 

come to montréal!


Blogger Ahad said ... (4:00 PM) : 

Welcome to Toronto, Scott. If you don't know the city, you're in for a treat.

Also, you may be too modest to divulge, but for your readers who may not know, Holt Renfrew, Canada's top fashion department store has dedicated one of its windows in all of its shops across the country to 'The Sartorialist'. Congratulations!

p.s. the Drake is a great choice and the owner, Jeff Stober, is a fantastic guy.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:00 PM) : 

Try the duck confit sandwich at Black Hoof ... mind our garbage strike


Blogger Emily L. said ... (4:07 PM) : 

Got the Holt's announcement too! Glad you're coming to visit our amazing city!

Wondering how many of us Sart fans are going to agonize over what to wear tomorrow!! lol... =D

Hope you have time to wander around the city a bit... Queen West west (over towards the Drake - has become an interesting jaunt with all its little shops!)


Anonymous Cabaret High Fashion Vintage said ... (4:17 PM) : 

Hi, we were so glad to hear that you are going to be in the city for the next few days, we hope that Toronto is a good host to you. We always tell our clients all about you and recommend your site; looking forward to getting your book as well. Not sure if we can make it to Holts for that event, but would love to meet you at the Drake tomorrow – we’re just down the street.


Anonymous FD said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Fellow comentators, he says Wednesday in the post. :)

Otherwise, look forward to seeing you and all the others in TO here. I'm sure glad I chose to spend the summer in this city!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:23 PM) : 

hahaha Sart shows up at a non-fashion-capital city and it automatically gets requests to come to every backwards place. Indianapolis?? Really?

So happy you are coming. And yes- please don't mind the garbage strike!! We are usually VERY clean!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:44 PM) : 

You should do the same in Vancouver, once your book comes out so you can sign it for me

Welcome to Toronto, Mr. Schuman!

My friend and I plan on dropping by to say hello. I was hoping your premiere book would be ready for us fortunate few during this visit...

If you get the chance, do visit my friend's restaurant: BANU at 777 Queen St. West-- just a hope and a skip away from The Drake. Amazing and genuine Iranian food and vodka bar.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

See you there, Scott. We look forward to meeting you!


Blogger M said ... (1:44 AM) : 

Jumping on the location suggestion bandwagon: I know the west coast is generally much more relaxed (Ugg boots and fleece...), but not everyone in Seattle is so lazy. It would be wonderful if a Seattle area location was added to the book signing tour--wonderful

Woohoo! A 15 minute walk from my place.

It should be fun to see the competition at the Drake.

Please excuse the smelly garbage. Toronto is usually much cleaner -edgy - but cleaner.


Blogger King of Gin said ... (11:04 AM) : 

you know, it's a bit of a shame. I work at the ROM, like two blocks from the Holt Renfrew, but I can't take a lunch at those times.

I'll try and make it to the Drake though.
