A made-in-Halifax approach to dandy chic

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!
