Man of Mystery
For digital media entrepreneur Marcus Troy, falling for the siren call of fashion happened early on. “I’d like to say I had an eye for dressing up at a very early age, I would have to say five years old or so,” he says. “I always loved clothes and putting outfits together.” Today, those outfits strike a balance between fashion and function that’s required of his hometown of Montreal, a city known as much for its stylish residents as its inclement weather. That might mean wearing an oversized Raf Simons parka with a suit (he prefers Tiger of Sweden) or Saint Laurent wool blazer, tapered Maison Margiela pants and Red Wing boots. “You want to stay warm, but also look good,” he says. On formal occasions, Troy turns to suits and tuxedoes, saying he loves to feel like James Bond. Developing a signature everyday look, however, has proved to be more challenging than appropriating the suave suiting of 007. “I was once told that a really stylish person should have a uniform, so that one day when people see a caricature of you, everyone should be able to figure it out that’s you,” he says. “I am still working on that uniform.” – Caitlin Agnew
