Can’t Go Wrong With Classics | Style Post

Christian Confidential | LacosteKeeping it super preppy yet casual with this style post. A Slim fit polo, khakis and a fresh pair of white Lacoste sneakers always make for a great outfit combination. Growing up my parents use to always dress me in preppy outfits like this and to this day this style is still a go-to for me. Whether you’re going on a first date, grabbing lunch with the boys or simply running around downtown, you’ll look fresh in this fit. If you’re looking for a little twist on the classic white sneakers, check out the ones that I’m wearing - still white but the pop of blue and red detailing give it a little more edge than your typical all-white kicks.

Monochrome Vibes | Style Post


monochrome street vibes | Christian Confidentialmonochrome street vibes | Christian ConfidentialLately, I’ve been embracing more of my edgy side when it comes to new fashion purchases. So, it came as no surprise to me that I would gravitated towards these drawstring shorts from Forever 21. Not only did I have to have them right away, I had to find the perfect tee to compliment them. I decided to pair these shorts with a white Longline muscle tee (that you’ll definitely see repeated) and a pair of black Hi-Tops, giving off total monochrome vibes. This look might not be for everyone but I’m all about being different and trying new things! Remember guys, the key to looking great in clothes, is wearing them with confidence.

Summer ‘Conditioning’ | Equinox Made Me Do It

Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialWarm weather, laying out by the pool and tropical travel is finally upon us and it seems like it’s here to stay for a few months. This is my favourite time of the year and I plan on making the most of it. That being said, I find that my  regular schedule gets a little more hectic and because of that my training schedule gets a little lighter. If you’re like me, you worked really hard over the winter months to have the body that you want and now is the time to show it off.  Now that I can’t spend as much time in the gym I had to find a way to not only maintain what I’ve worked hard for but still see more results.  

Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialShockwave is one of my favourite classes at Equinox and it checks off two main focuses for my summer training program 1. full body workouts and 2. high intensity training. A 45 minute session that gets your heart rate up with various circuit challenges that can consist of rowing, the use of body bars, kettle bells and Bosu balls just to name a few. You know that saying “The more you give, the more you get back”? It’s honestly the truth when it comes to this class, if you go in there and push yourself really hard throughout the whole class, the results can be insane. I definitely recommend trying it out! Shockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialShockwave | Equinox | Christian ConfidentialWhat I’m Wearing

Borrowing From The Hipsters | Style Post

Unpredictable | Christian ConfidentialRecently I’ve been really interested in experimenting with different colour palettes and pieces that I wouldn’t necessarily gravitate towards. I think it’s really important to not only try new things when it comes to fashion but to get outside of your comfort zone and be a little creative. It’s spring so light colours are everywhere and even though I’m not a huge trend guy I’ve decided to try out the whole coloured denim craze. Since the mint green is something I’ve never tried before,I decided to pair it with a cream sweater and my new Sherbrooke Brogue 4’s (Lacoste) that I got from Town Shoes. I think the colour combo really works well together and totally gives off a cool hipster vibe, especially because of the detailing on my kicks. Clean, stylish with a vintage feel this look would be perfect for a casual dinner with friends or an evening stroll throughout the city. Sherbooke Brogues | Christian ConfidentialUnpredictable | Christian ConfidentialUnpredictable | Christian ConfidentialWhat I’m Wearing

Kickin’ It In Plaid | Style Post

Kickin' It In Plaid | Style PostI’m really not sure what’s going on with me these days but I’ve fallen in love with the plaid trend this year, more than ever. Maybe it’s my love of everything 90’s and over the winter break I watched a lot of episodes of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ on Netflix.  – Whatever the case may be, I’ve been incorporating a lot more plaid and colour into my outfits these days. Here’s one of my latest plaid purchases from Forever 21, that I paired with some woven suit joggers and my favourite suede red sneakers.  I hope you guys like it!Kickin' It In Plaid | Style PostKickin' It In Plaid | Style PostKickin' It In Plaid | Style PostWhat I’m Wearing

Health & Wellness With Equinox | Brand Ambassador

Christian Confidential x Equinox 2014 has been an interesting year to say the very least. It has brought  a lot of changes in my life but one thing that has remained consistent is my desire to stay healthy and active. 

I wish I could say that Canada was one of those places that the weather permitted outdoor workouts all year round but unfortunately it’s not. That being said, we’re pretty lucky to have a few state of the art fitness facilities to not only take our workouts indoors but also take them to another level. -Equinox is definitely one of those places and I’m happy to say that I’ll be acting as the brands official ‘Canadian Male Ambassador.’

Christian Confidential x Equinox With the help of personal trainers, classes and healthy meals readily available I have a feeling that I’m in good hands at Equinox. I mean with a motto like ” It’s not fitness. It’s life.” – How could I go wrong? That’s pretty much my own personal mandate. When it comes to your health it’s more than just taking a class or going for a run whenever you feel like it. It’s about making a commitment to yourself to always make time for those classes and  runs,to not only see results but to feel your best. Equinox makes it easy to do that by having two locations in Toronto’s downtown core and also having locations in most major city’s in North America at your disposal when traveling. 

Christian Confidential x Equinox
What I’m most excited about with this partnership is the wide range of classes I’ll be able to participate in. I’ve tried a few and have already found one that really pushes me; Precision Running. – which also happens to be the newest addition to their schedule. No matter what level of runner you are this class really takes your training to another level with intervals focusing on speed, incline, duration and recovery. It’s the perfect class to take when you have limited amount of time but are looking for the most amount of burn.Christian Confidential x Equinox Christian Confidential x Equinox

Whenever I’m asked to describe my style, I usually say that I dress the way that I feel but if I had to check off a box; it would be a mix between street chic and American prep. For the longest while, I’ve been  really into the whole street chic look you know leather, ripped denim, and oversized tees but ever since the season changed I’ve been falling back in love with more of my preppy side. Layering is one of my favourite things to do in the fall and with the access to beautiful pull overs, shirts and khakis I decided to take full advantage with this style post. I layered a blue pullover from The Gap over a classic white oxford shirt a pair of khaki joggers and crisp white kicks from Lacoste. I hope you like this style as much as I do!American Prep | Style PostAmerican Prep | Style PostAmerican Prep | Style PostWhat I’m Wearing

This to me is the perfect outfit to do all your running around in over the weekend, allowing you to feel comfortable and yet still look stylish at the same time. It’s Thanksgiving for us Canadians so I’m wishing you all a good one! Until next time guys xo!
