Jesse Dean Cook. Discovering West Vancouver's Most Glamorous Properties.

 

There has never been a better time for mens fashion than there is today. Christine Baracos and Bobbie Long of West Vancouver's Baracos + Brand are at the forefront of the newest styles as we head into Fall/Winter.

 

If your suit collection is looking tired, or they are simply off-the-rack without tailoring and don't look as good as a suit should on you, do yourself a favor and book a 20 minute appointment at the "Suit Up Pop Up" Event on Wednesday October 2nd. The event takes place from 7am-5pm and breakfast/lunch/refreshments will be served throughout the day.

 

Book your appointment now as slots are filing up...call (604) 925-1812 or email info@baracosandbrand.com. (http://baracosandbrand.com/)

 

If you are like most guys you hate shopping...especially for suits. You kind of know how they should fit, sort of know how to put together accesories (pocket square, shirt, tie, cuff links, socks, shoes, belt....) but the thought of that stresses you out. Christine and Bobbie will help you find the perfect off-the-rack suit starting at $399 and tailor to your body. Or, if you have an athletic build (large legs and seat) your best bet will be to opt for a made-to-measure suit starting at only $795 (or 2 for $750 each, 3 for $700 each). These suits will fit like a glove whether you use them everyday for work, or special events such as conferences/weddings etc...

 

There are upgrades available (Zegna fabric suits) that are a bit more expensive as well as fully customizing your entire suit. Many upgrades such as inner lining (bright color, polka dot etc...) are included as are color of buttons, cut in the back etc...

 

We have all had our share of bad suits, but once you have one custom made for you....you'll never go back and wonder how you didn't do this in the past.

 

Look your best this Fall/Winter (and into the New Year) and start off by booking your appointment now.

 

I'll see you there and have a great weekend.

 

Best regards,

 

Jesse Dean Cook

 

We might not look like Becks but at least we can dress as good as him.

This past Saturday afternoon The Deighton Cup took place at Hastings Race Track. It was a fabulous event and one we should look to replicate here in West Vancouver.

 

Speaking of West Vancouver, I wanted to personally thank Christine Baracos and Bobbie Long from Baracos + Brand (1411 Bellevue Ave) for styling me for this event! The outfit was a hit and there are many Gentlemen who will be visiting their store shortly to pick up some funky accessories; as well as update their suit collection for this Fall.

 

For more information on this great local store please go to the link below, and I hope that everyone had a great weekend!

If you (or your husband or boyfriend) are in need of a style update, then Baracos + Brand in Ambleside (1411 Bellevue Ave) is the modern men's store for you! So many men want to know how to dress but are overwhelmed by the process. Perhaps it is going into a large store with so many choices and no one to help piece an outfit together. This results in an off-the-rack suit that does not fit correctly and in turn does not look good.

 

Owner Christine Baracos and Men's Style Coach Specialist Bobbie Long are here to help. They offer a wide range of suits, casual wear and accessories (great pocket squares, bow-ties and bright socks!) in a boutique environment that allows you to relax, enjoy the experience and learn from the process. Nothing quite feels as good as a perfectly tailored suit, and most men have not experienced feeling like a million bucks in a suit that fits like a glove. Bobbie will make sure your suit is tailored specifically to your body type so that no matter if you are wearing your suit to work, a wedding or a special event you know you are looking your best!

 

With upcoming events such as The Deighton Cup and le Diner en Blanc, Baracos + Brand will make sure you (or your man) is dressed in style...dressed like a Gentleman.

 

For more information as well as how to book a personal consultation with the one and only Bobbie Long, please go to their website provided below.
