Not only clothes but accessories have the power to make the man, judging by the recent output from small-scale Canadian makers of adorments of various kinds. Krane Design elevates a classic duffle bag with waxed cotton and premium leather trim details, lending it an edgy-meets-elegant air. Striped braces from Vancouver’s Cursor & Thread, meanwhile, will take a dandy dude one more stylish step forward, as will a bold madras tie from Bay Cooper. Baffi’s quirky handcrafted Baltic birch cufflinks are a snappy alternative to staid metallics. And both Rebels Refinery and Weston & Lawrence offer grooming goods handmade in Toronto, showing that shopping local never looked so good.
