Ryan MacGrath

A made-in-Halifax approach to dandy chic

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 4:00 AM

Ryan MacGrath - Occupation: Musician - Personal style: Dandy chic. I have a thing for old-timey boating and equestrian fashion. I recently chopped the collars off a bunch of my shirts because I saw a period film where some dude was strolling through a meadow with pinstriped pants, a collarless shirt and suspenders. Hot to trot! - Favourite item you're wearing: The herringbone trousers that were made especially for me by local designer, and soon-to-be superstar, Louanna Murphy. They are tailored just right, the fabric is light and cozy, and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I'm supporting independent designers. - What's new? Just putting the finishing touches on my new (and first!) full-length album, Cooper Hatch Paris. It features Halifax gypsy-jazz band, Gypsophilia, and a sumptuous duet with Chantal Kreviazuk. It'll be released in July! - PHOTO JULÉ MALET-VEALE

What kind of February weather is your favourite?

  • Slush city
  • Cold snap—ice streets, pretty trees
  • Big ol' dumping of snow
  • Oddly warm, tricks innards into thinking Spring is just around the corner
  • Anything that gets me out of going to school/work
