I’m Bobby McGuire (B.A, B.Ed) your expert on style coaching.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in English and minor in Social Psychology, from Saint Marys University. About a decade ago, when I started my education degree at Acadia University, I picked up a part time job at a local menswear store. I started as a teacher but quickly ventured into a different career path. What started as a part-time gig in retail evolved into being the Manager of a successful store. From here, a passion to be well dressed struck and I began experimenting with different styles and gaining much knowledge and insight into the world of men’s fashion.
I have become a leader for men’s blogging and style in Halifax with various support from many local establishments and individuals.
2 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Fashion Designer and Author Joseph Abboud in Las Vegas. He is someone who has inspired my style and my passion for men’s styling. His advice on knowing the story behind the garments we wear really resonated with me. People connect with style and clothing through stories.
In just under 2 years I gained a Instagram following of 5,000+ individuals both locally and internationally. I have been featured on several fashion Instagram accounts such @josephabboud , @paisleyandgray and @dapperset just to name a few.
These experiences along with my 10 years of expertise in men’s fashion and background in teaching have helped me put together a wide array of skills to help you find and develop your personal style.
The fashion industry and style scene in Halifax is constantly growing, and I’m proud to be a part of this movement. But, there are still many individuals in the area we live in that have yet to find a style that works for them; this is what I want to help with.
I really enjoy the pleasure that comes from helping someone gain confidence from being well dressed. I have experience dressing customers for parties, first dates, engagement photos, corporate events and weddings. I want to take what I have learned from these experiences along with my knowledge of menswear and style and share them with you!I’m now offering advice, style coaching, grooming, personal shopping and more in the HRM and beyond!
