Women have trusted Saffron Road for over 20 years for the best in quality and fashion. We've been working to do the same for our Saffron guy for the past couple years and now we have it down! Men's fashion doesn't change at quite the rapid pace that women's does, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring! We've found the must haves for every man's wardrobe, but made sure it's the right mix of fun prints, perfect fits and bold colours, while maintaining the same quality you'd expect from Saffron Road.

Our guy likes to have FUN! Mixing muted plaids and bright solids make the sometimes preppy look fun and fashionable. Autumn Cashmere and Vince play up texture with perforated details and colour blocking, yet offer the ultimate in comfort and fit. The classic Vince chino is ideal for any look. Rolled up and cuffed to give a more playful feel, or worn at it's regular length, this is the perfect pant for all the Mr. Saffrons our there!

Whether your head is in a book or in the game, it's easy to add a sporty element to any guy's look. A casual, lightweight crew neck sweater is perfect over a tee or a button up shirt. Roll up the hem on your jeans, pants, and even your shorts, and pair them back to a low profile runner. We're seeing blue everywhere! Bright indigo, deep navy, and weathered blue are great worn together for a tonal look or layered back to neutrals. Blue is this season's most popular colour.

There's a little bad ass in every guy, and we channel that in the most sophisticated way possible! Dark denim and a leather jacket are a staple for every man's closet. Tying your plaid shirt around your waist isn't just a 90's one hit wonder, it's back and we love this look! Keep in mind, not all plaid shirts are created equal. This season, Ben Sherman offers short sleeve button ups and light weight long sleeve options, and Vince shows luxe, bold colours.

Once you find your perfect TEE you are set! Get the right fit; slim through the chest and body, with the hem hitting just below the belt. Throwing on a James Perse Tee is probably the most comfortable decision you can make in your day. Want a great way to add colour to your outfit? Vince offers the season's best in colour and can be a little more fitted, making it perfect for layering. Either way, we have effortless dressing perfected with the right t-shirt.

We firmly believe you can never have too many shoes! Slide in to a comfy Frye shoe, lace up a sleek boot from Modern Vintage or keep it classy with a lace-up loafer from Bed Stu. We've got you covered for all your footwear wants and needs!

Office Ready

We haven't even hit the peak of winter and are already trying to find ways to brighten up our cold weather wardrobe! We love this printed Rachel Roy top and pencil skirt; the floral print is fun and vibrant.  In keeping with current colour trends, we paired the black based print with a navy Judith & Charles jacket. 

Our guy is sporting some classic pieces from our men's collection.  Depending on your lifestyle, our menswear can be incorporated into a casual, work, or formal outfit.

Trend Alert: The Silk Bomber

The silk bomber is trending for both the current Fall season and moving forward into Spring 2014! We've picked up this fun trend from Equipment because when it comes to silk, no one does it as well as they do. We're currently offering both a classic black & white print and a bold floral print as featured above.


So how do you make use of these must have jackets? We suggest throwing one over a LBD, pair it with a fitted skirt or back to a great pair of jeans. Play with layers and textures under the bomber, like a boxy tee or fine knit sweater. Still not sure? Take a look and get inspired by some street styles that have incorporated this hot trend.

Daniel Wellington

We LOVE the simplicity Daniel Wellington brings to a watch.  This gives you the option to jazz up your wrist with an arm party, or leave it clean, sophisticated and timeless with one of our Daniel Wellington watches. 

Here are a couple pictures of Saffron Road's arm parties featuring the DW watch!

Shake Shack

Our only day "off" in New York was perfect! Exactly the kind of day you want to spend walking along 5th Avenue, window shopping and taking in the NYC vibe. Still trying to recover from the 3 prior days of appointments, we were happy when we made it to Madison Square Park and could stop for a late lunch at Shake Shack. Perhaps not gourmet, but incredibly delicious mushroom burgers, fries and shakes! Although sad to leave the big apple, we knew we had exciting Fall goods and a Fall fashion show to get home to.          

Sporting our casual looks: Jonathan is in a James Perse tee, Vince pants and Frye Company shoes. Brianna's outfit features a Hoss shift dress, House of Harlow Shades and a Liebeskind bag. Jennifer is wearing Theory, Rich & Skinny, Brave Leather and a Liebeskind bag. Gail-Lynn is rocking an Autumn Cashmere cardi, Vintage Shades Scarf and Rich & Skinny pants.

Bryant Park Lunch

We were fortunate to have beautiful weather while in New York. The kind of weather that is crisp enough to remind you Fall is moving in, but warm enough in the sun to feel like it's Spring. Timing is everything, and we wrapped up our Vince appointment (conveniently located next to Bryant Park) just in time to get a bite to eat and take in some fresh air.  

Jonathan is decked out in Vince, Gail-Lynn and Brianna are wearing Lida Baday, and Jennifer is in Theory.

Coterie, D&A

With Fall in full effect at Saffron Road, we’re getting ready for Spring 2014! Sound crazy? It is, kind of. But now that we’ve received most of our cozy Fall goods, we need to think about what’s next. Though we do a lot of the buying in Toronto, we recently spent 4 busy days in New York City scouting for treats to fill the store for Spring 2014.

We started our trip at the Designers and Agents Show (D&A). It’s a smaller trade show, but the best for finding new and unique collections from all over the globe. We also had a few appointments around the city, but spent the bulk of our time at Coterie. Coterie is a giant trade show with hundreds upon hundreds of booths with pretty much everything fashion.  There are so many great things to choose from and so many decisions to make, including the ever-famous…what do I wear today?!?! Keep checking our blog over the next few days to see what we got up to and of course, what we were wearing!
