Fellow Canadian Marcus Troy is an expert in bringing fashion bloggers together with fashion brands.
“I consider myself a content creator who works with brands to enhance consumer experiences… I started consulting with the PROJECT tradeshow two years ago when I created the BLOGGER PROJECT – my way of connecting the right editors with the vast number of brands on display at the show.”
At the show Marcus is all business, which means networking throughout the convention center and being on his feet for three straight days. Therefore, dressing-up a sharp pair of sneakers is his ideal look.
Here’s what he wore for the three-day show.
1. Camo Crazy
“I like the idea of tonal looks, like a navy suit & navy shirt… but adding a disruptive pattern like a silk camouflage tie & pocket square.”
For years menswear editors and bloggers have been preaching “never wear a matching tie and pocket square”, but here Marcus kind of pulls it off. Does this “rule” perhaps have exceptions?
As a creative business person in the fashion industry Marcus has to stay a on-trend, making the camo briefcase a perfect bag for him.
“The camo briefcase is a great conversation piece.”
The best sneakers to wear with a suit are low-cut, sleek (not chunky) and minimal in design.
