Street Style: 18 looks at the after-work crowd on King West
King Street West’s towering glass condos, inordinate number of boutique marketing shops and chock-a-block bistros can make the strip seem like the epicentre of young urban professional-dom in the city. Naturally, we expected to see a lot of smart designer workwear on a warm weekday evening. And we did. We spotted a polished woman carrying an ostrich leather carryall, a man in a perfectly preppy square-end tie eating a sausage at Wvrst and an oh-so-sharp-looking lawyer on his way to Spin. But we also saw plenty of alternative takes on contemporary post-work style, including an offbeat couple in motto tees mugging for our camera and designer Sid Neigum, who, true to form, looked stylishly severe dressed in black from head to toe. (All-black proved something of a King West theme.) While the fashion may be surprisingly eclectic, most passersby still shared a common purpose—drinks and food on one of the many patios nearby.

I guess I’m too old and very un-cool because why are they dressed like its the middle of winter. Leather jackets, sweaters? plaid pants? I don’t get it. To the ladies in picture #3 and 18, those gawd-awful glasses are really dreadful. I know they’re in style but they look good on pretty much no one, including you. When you can’t see the face for the glasses, its the wrong choice. And the woman in pic #15, your hair is just beautiful.
LOL! Some are trying too hard, others not hard enough. This city’s sense of style is…confused and although it breaks my heart to say it, the Annex and Kensington Market are no longer wonderful places to escape and shop for vintage finds now that they have caught the attention of the style taste killer set.
This over rated, over hyped and dreadful King West is just so Yesterday!!! And the people here, are they from King West ? Dreadful!!!
Mr # 5 top notch. Girl # 2 pretty cute :)
