6 in 1: an outfit from Uncle Otis that is just dandy (enough)

Welcome to the second instalment—er, outfit—of All in One, a new series in which we visit stores around the city and prove that one-stop shopping is possible for the ever-busier consumer. This time we checked out Yorkville’s Uncle Otis (26 Bellair Street), home to neo-traditional style options and an assortment of street- and workwear. We think the sharply dressed man prefers to have longevity in the clothes he buys, so we put together something timeless that could last for years to come. The  total cost for our haul was $1500, but check out the individual price breakdown and shots of the individual pieces in a gallery below.

    Any man who picks up those shoes, knows what’s up!
    nice outfit overall – it’s trendy without causing a gag reflex!
    Solid investment.

    “C’mon, Elijah Wood is doing it”???? That’s soft, son!! I’m not buying anything if the cosign is Frodo.

    Hmm… definitely a decent outfit, but I’m thinking I could piece this one together for a hell of a lot less than $1500, with very little effort. $110 for that tie? That is completely unnecessary.

    The shoes, however, are glorious as they are.

    those shoes scream trying too hard. but hey, some people think plasticine face looks fabulous.

    all good except the shoes – in all honesty the brand is so nasty…bought a pair last year and they fell apart in a second – nver again will i be fooled into buying “cool” shoes – better off sticking to brands that know how to make “good” shoes…

    Like really, $1,500? How long would it for someone making minimum wage to save that up?
