S2E26 - Julian Finkel (Model Citizen)


For nearly 15 years, Model Citizen in Toronto's Kensington Market has been a popular menswear boutique for the cool and sophisticated gentleman.

With an assortment of Canadian labels and hip graphic T's, the store certainly lives up to its motto 'You Deserve a Better (Dressed) Boyfriend)'.

We sat down with owner Julian Finkel to discuss the rock n' roll aesthetic of Model Citizen, silk-screening t-shirts for his various bands during his youth, and occasionally bestowing some fashion and music knowledge on his children.
