On Saturday mornings, the lineup at Phat’s Barber Shop often spills out the door. Amid the rise in beard-butter-bro-barbers, Phat’s has managed to keep things simple. Each evening the place gets swept, sometimes a day’s work catches the wind and floats its way down Windsor Street. A hand-written note in orange marker in the window announces a vacation and people turn on their heels, but not before making a note of when Phat says he’ll be back. Often, a lamp by the mirror is left on overnight, allowing neighbours to peer in and see that sometimes, the day’s last task was left for tomorrow.
