Street Style: Toronto Men’s Fashion Week

Toronto Men’s Fashion Week is known for bringing adventurous looks to the city’s runways and its sidewalks. This season, though, the guys toned it down slightly, opting for understated-yet-edgy outfits accessorized with their best Blue Steel stares. Here, our favourite pre-show looks from designers, stylists and lots of male models.
