Okay, so now that we have you hooked on the amazing pieces Modern Menswear carries, it’s time to get to know the owner Drew, a bit better!
So Drew, how long have you operated on 4th Street?
Drew: We opened our store in September 2014.
You have some of the coolest decor in here, it’s such a unique mix. What was the inspiration behind the start of Modern Menswear?
Drew: We felt there was a lack of unique menswear in the city of Calgary. With the exception of a select few boutiques, there weren’t many place for men to shop other than the mall.
Many Calgarians love to travel, especially to Europe and we felt this shouldn’t be the only time that they are able to buy clothing that complimented their lifestyle.
That’s great, and so incredibly true. What’s something we might not know about your Modern Menswear?
Drew: We buy exclusively from Canada or outside of North America, only bringing in between 3-6 of each piece. We buy direct from our brands, most of which do not market to North America. You could be one of 3/6 people in North America with a particular piece.
and….. One fun fact?
Drew: It’s a proven fact we like fun.
What you love most about being on 4th Street?
Drew: 4th Street is home for us. We grew up in the community, My first job was at Tony Roma’s (now Mercado). That’s how long we have been involved in 4th Street.
That’s amazing! Guilty Pleasures?
Drew: Uhm, candy? I dunno.
What is your staple piece in your closet?
Drew: Always a jacket, right now it’s the new Wood Wood Suede bomber jacket.
