Peter came to Surmesur with 31 years of experience, including 13 at Ralph Lauren in Europe and the U.S., under his highly fashionable belt. This gentleman's wasted no time distinguishing himself as a walking encyclopedia of men’s sartorial dos and don’ts.
If he had his druthers, he would dress Justin Trudeau and George Clooney, perhaps in the bold colors and velvety textures that populate his own wardrobe.
A master of mixing and matching, Peter is only too happy to share his top tips for creating the perfect look for every client who walks through the door. Color, for starters, is always key.
A well-travelled man who considers Paris to be the geographic heart of men’s style, he also has his sights set on visiting British Columbia and is patiently awaiting an invitation to the Cannes Film Festival. In the meantime, he invites you to visit him at Surmesur’s Mississauga store.
A proud Mexican born in Texas, Adrian is the youngest of five siblings. Growing up in a big family in the north of Mexico taught him to love nature, horseback riding and visiting the countryside, though nowadays he considers himself a full-blown city boy.
He has played sports all of his life and got really good at them since he always practiced with his eldest brother. In fact, when he was a senior in high school, his team won a national soccer championship – or rather futbol, as he likes to point out – and he is convinced the story will be made into a movie one day – or perhaps a short film.
A world traveller, Adrian has lived in Chihuahua, Vancouver, Paris, Monterrey, Quebec, Montreal and Ottawa. He dreams of one day visiting the Serengeti. His role at Surmesur allows him to travel to a variety of major cities, where he evaluates market conditions and their potential to welcome new Surmesur stores.
Adrian believes that nothing beats a good taco, with the possible exception of a well-tailored suit.
For Charles, everything revolves around culture, impulse and aesthetics. This Star Wars fan embraced literature at a young age, later adding art history to his repertoire before pursuing his newest passion.
Working in a tea house was a revelation for Charles. He even holds a diploma from the Canadian Tea Institute, and it’s this interest that led him to clothing. As he likes to say, both worlds are all about ‘the aesthetic, beauty, detail, the richness of tastes.’
A veritable social media phenomenon, @hismajestycharles discovered fashion while working at Terra Nostra for two years. He later stretched his creativity at Venne, a made-to-measure menswear store.
Charles brings an entirely different dimension to the Montreal boutique. Besides his personality, his creativity and enthusiasm make him one of the most sought-after stylists in his milieu. It’s in this environment, where he can be himself and express his art, that Charles feels complete.
