5 Things Not To Miss at #TGE2017

GentlemenExpo2016_373

We’re back with another 5 Things You Cannot Miss At #TGE2017. 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.

Pocket Square Clothing

When USC grads Rodolfo Ramirez and Andrew Cheung started Pocket Square Clothing (or as the cool kids call it ‘PSC’) I’m sure they never dreamt that they would be accessorizing and dressing some of the biggest names in sports & entertainment. Or maybe they did know… and that’s what fuelled their industry rise. PSC wants to ‘become a styledestination for talented gentlemen who care about the way they look’ and you can learn all about them at TGE2017.

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. Come to #TGE2017 is you’re into: style, grooming, health, fitness, food, drink, sports, entertainment, cars, bikes, and pretty much anything that involves living and being better! We will be unveiling our line-up of celebrity guests, attractions and exhibitors soon, so stay tuned!

There are hundreds of products, services and ‘stuff’ on offer at The Gentlemen’s Expo. Every aisle you turn down, you’ll be sure to discover something new and something awesome. Here’s a short list of some items from brands that we are pretty excited about…

We love love love the recent travel sock collection from Hot Sox. They keep raising the bar to help you raise their sock game. The artist collection from a few years back is still on point, as well. Looking forward to added to the stripes and dots of your current sock drawer? Look no further. Get a peek at what Hot Sox has been up to HERE.

Brave & Bearded

If you’ve ever wondered why some dude’s beards’ just look better than others – it may be products from B&B. They supply a whole host of barber shops with product, so you may have tried it already. They also have a pretty sick line of apparel.

Altorosto

You should never compromise on what you put on your feet, especially in the winter. Altorosto get this. Since forever, winter boot style has been function before fashion. Not anymore Gents. Take a look at some of these boots. Game changers. Canadian company HQ’d in Toronto.

Surmesur

If you haven’t figured it out yet, made-to-measure is the way to go. Surmesur know this and have been on the right side of this trend for a while. Locations are popping up all over Ontario and Quebec, but definitely come and see them at TGE2017. They are TGE vets, so the safe money is that they will have a specific offer just for you during TGE 2017. Get measured and get that custom shirt, suit or sport coat from some of the best in the business.

G Fox & Co Canada

Do you like watches? The Foxwood collection from G Fox & Co is simply stunning. Mixing leather, wood and other materials, these watches will turn heads. Be sure to put one on your wrist at #TGE2017. G Fox & Co also have a whole host of other offerings like sunglasses and snapbacks. People loved G Fox & Co last year at our event, so you know this year they will be bringing some great products and killer offers for the #TGE2017 crowd.

Parc City Boots

Parc City Boots were the talk of #TGE2016. Super cool shoes and boots, designed for Gents on the go. When you’re at #TGE2017, you must try on a pair. They are super comfy, stylish and I’m sure they will have proper deals for show fans. Honestly, these boots are stunning, hand-crafted in Portugal.

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.

Yes, tickets will be available at door! We are in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre South Building. Tickets are $45 for General Admission and $65 for VIP tickets. Remember the VIP tickets come with an incredible gift bag that features a wide array of products. For real, the VIP bag has so much stuff in it we needed to write a whole blog about it.

There is so much to do once you get inside the MTCC. HERE is the full list of attractions. We recommend that you do a ‘once around’ and see what attractions catch your eye. Talk to the people working there. See if you need to book time with them. See if there is an additional cost. Ask them about the experience. We recommend the Bag Jump in support of TenFed where you plunge yourself from a 30 ft platform. It’s nuts… in a good way.

5) Food and Food and Food:

Our #TGE2016 Culinary Programme is out of this world. So many Top Local Chefs, headlined by the Openly Discussion and the Underground Chef Co Battle that sees Chef Ted Reader vs Chef Jeff Dueck, hosted by Joe Friday and Mike Ward.
