Keeping your kicks fresh and clean is what URAD is all about. In 1966, URAD was developed by the Daru family (Urad is Daru spelled backwards), for the Italian furniture industry. But as most great products, over time, URAD’s popularity has grown worldwide and is now available in many different sizes and formulations. With our harsh climate, Canadians love Urad Leather Care Products!

Our curated list is below, but first… friendly reminder that The Gentlemen’s Expo is November 24 & 25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building. Style & Grooming, Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Guest Speakers and Live Demos. Don’t ya dare miss it! Now, on to the list…

Whitley Neill

Yes, we are getting quite a reputation for having an incredible selection on cocktails at our event. Yes, we are ‘OK’ with this. Yes, we will be showcasing a number of bevvys this year; like Whitley Neill Gin. Inspired by Africa and handcrafted in England. It’s a balanced Dry Gin; that blends classic gin botanicals with exotic African essences to create a blend with a flavour as unique as its heritage. Make sure you look out for Whitley Neill from Nov 24-25 at the MTCC North Building.

Gentlemen Of The North

GOTN is what happens when two stylish gents want to create a line of cool clothing and top notch accessories. We can’t wait to check out their latest line of Headwear at TGE2017. It’s made for Canadian winters by people who have actually experienced Canadian winters. Oh, and also ask them about the Gentlemen Of The North ‘sock of the month’ club. You’ll be glad you did.

Track & Field / Bangarang

Track & Field Bar is one of our favourite places. We love the bocce. We love the shuffleboard. We love their staff. Sonaturally, we totally freaked out when we heard they have opened a new bar, ‘Bangarang’, on College St.  We asked them (ok, so we begged them) to come to our show. They agreed. They will be at #TGE2017… and they will be bringing the games. Expect shuffleboard and cornhole… and good times.

6ix Man Grooming

We know that taking care of your beard is no joke. This is serious business. 6ix Man is a start-up in the field of cosmeticsfocusing on mens grooming. They define a 6ix Man as “A classically modern man. Regardless of what he is doing, he always looks good.” Does that sound like you? I bet it does. Beard oils, balms, combs and everything you need to keep your beard fresh. That’s 6ix Man.

Shirt Studs

What can we say about Shirt Studs… Theses trailblazers are always pushing the boundaries of what’s next in men’s style accessories. Mixed media, 3D printing and beyond. May we suggest cuff links that project holograms of our favourite hip hop acts performing? AT #TGE2017 take a look at their offerings. You’ll be amazed. Even better, everything Shirt Studs makes is hand crafted in Toronto. And yes, those are Prestige Worldwide cufflinks. Siiiiick!

There’s another quick rundown of some our most anticipated partners at #TGE2017.

5 Reasons To Come To #TGE2017

GentlemenExpo2016_057

5 Reasons To Come To #TGE2016 from November 24-25, 2017 at MTCC North Building.

5) You’ll Learn Something. Walking thru #TGE2017 will be like walking thru your favourite men’s magazine. We hand pick our exhibitors. We want the most knowledgable people on the most relevant topics to be there for you. Subject matter experts: whether it’s suiting, grooming, drinks or pretty much anything related to the #BeBetter lifestyle. Strike up a conversation and you will not be disappointed.

4) Your Next Favourite Drink. Bartenders & Mixologists will be live and present each and every day. Yes, you may be amazed at some of the bottle flipping, but go a little deeper and you’ll be sure to see your favourite cocktail being made. Or maybe it’s your ‘next’ fav cocktail. Watch, learn, sample … and make sure you take away some pointers for making it yourself.

3) Like-Minded People. One thing you can guarantee at #TGE2017 is that you’ll be surrounded by like-minded people. We may all have a different style or a unique look, but one thread that connects us all is that we want to #BeBetter. The vibe on the floor is so cool, because every single gentleman or gentlewoman shares this common goal. Listen, learn, participate. Be sure to talk to people. Strangers will become friends. The experience of #TGE2017 is like nothing else.

2) Shopping. You’ll be surrounded by clothes, footwear, gear, and accessories. Get fitted for that custom suit. Try on those new boots. Add a tie-bar, leather bracelet and a maybe a new scarf. You may even leave with a whole new look. Make sure you take pictures of your purchases and tag them #BeBetter and #TGE2017.

1) #BeBetter. It’s what we preach. It could be as simple a new pomade for your hair or as large as solving world issues. Just by coming to #TGE2017 you have already taken the right step – and we thank you. We encourage you to try and sample as much as you can over the course of our two day event (Nov 24-25) and then put everything you soak up into practice in your life. Share the knowledge with your friends and keep the cycle going.  See you soon.
