A few fundamentals I’ve learnt from all my years working with men.
Most men don’t know what size they wear
Most men will give it 3 times max. to get their size right
Most men don’t want to spend a long time shopping
Most men aren’t aware that you can tailor your suit to get a better silhouette
Most men don’t like to shop with their partner because they end up wearing what their partner likes
Not to toot my own horn but 🎺 🎺
I have made a living out of being able to size you up on sight & will often get your size right within 2 garments.
Which means the process can take 30mins in some cases. And who wouldn’t be happy with that.
Styling / shopping doesn’t have to be a long, drawn out, arduous process.
And it doesn’t need to be intimidating either.
It is actually there to make life easier for you. Once I know your sizes you never have to step foot inside a shopping centre again.
If you or a man you know could benefit from a consult, please get in touch via phone or email in my bio.

RACE RECAP 📢
I started the race with Anthony and two other teammates from @boutiqueendurance. The plan was to run under 1:40, and ideally for me, under 1:39 (4:41/km).
In my half marathon last year, I made the mistake of starting a bit too slow and having to run some really fast splits later to squeak under 1:40. I wanted to avoid that this time around and run a more even-paced effort, all the while still running a negative split. We went out at 4:42 pace, definitely faster than I expected, but I felt comfortable. Things felt controlled for about the first 10km.
As we neared 13km, things began feeling harder. Anthony and one of our teammates fell behind a bit, but luckily, our other teammate was still there. At this point, runners were pretty spaced apart, so I was glad not be running on my own. .
Between 13-16km, I would say I went through a pretty challenging patch mentally. I began doubting myself and wondering if I’d gone out too fast. But at every kilometre, we were still on pace, so I tried not to panic. I told myself, “You don’t need to be a hero. Just hold 4:40s, and you’ll have enough at the end.”
I was now deep in the pain cave. Every little twist and turn on the course began to take its toll on my legs and ankles, but I knew once we got to Parc René-Lévesque, the course would mostly be straight and that it would be easier to maintain the pace. .
Sure enough, as soon as we entered the park, I felt much stronger mentally. Physically, I was on the edge, but I knew that if I kept it together, I would be able to finish in my goal time. I definitely wanted to stop. The pain was real. But I refused to give in.
In the last 2km, I used every mental tool in my toolbox. “You have less than 10 minutes of running left. That’s nothing.” “You didn’t come here to run easy.” “It’s time to empty the tank.” At this point, I couldn’t think straight entirely. I just let my competitive instinct take over. .
Crossed the finish line in 1:38:51. I’m proud of the time. But I’m even more proud of the effort that I put into it.
