Streetstyle: Dan Yurkiw

  • Print

People’s body types are all different, so investing in a good tailor can make your clothing appear polished and well structured. According to StreetStyle candidate Dan Yurkiw, a tailor is his clothing’s best friend. He needs to get larger sizes to compensate for his height, then gets them altered to be slimming. Yurkiw was spotted passing through the Village to pick up some groceries before heading home after work.

What he wore…

Suit and shirt — "It’s a local company from Winnipeg called eph Apparel, where they do custom suits and orders for you."

Tie — "The tie is Hudson Room, which is The Bay’s signature brand, I think."

Laptop bag — "It’s from U.N. luggage and it’s a knomo."

Belt — "Allen Edmonds from Victorio Rossi on Corydon."

Watch — "Gold Brick Jewellers at Garden City Shopping Centre."

Shoes — Aldo

Garment and recycled bags — "Dollarwise keeps my shirts pressed and clean, and this bag is from Urban Waves — it’s made out of recycled billboard materials. I used to work in marketing, so it was a little marketing influence to tie into my wardrobe," says Yurkiw with a laugh.

Fashion essential

"A watch; it’s the only piece of jewelry I wear. I find them very interesting. I have one that’s a classic wind-up style and it self-winds, so it’s kind of cool."

Style inspiration

"I think it’s a little bit of whatever I see on the streets and I guess those around me. And Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) from the show How I Met Your Mother. I think whatever it is you’re wearing, you have to make sure it’s you."

Fashion tip

"Always button up the top button of your suit. And your socks don’t have to match your pants; you can mix it up a little. Go see Martha at Gino’s Custom Tailors on Ellice and have all your clothes tailored. She’s my go-to tailor! I get sweaters taken in and everything. For me, it’s impossible to find clothes that fit right, so I have to get a large or an extra-large and then get them altered to where I need it."

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
