“You don’t want to draw attention to yourself.”
That’s why his style is “very practical, very comfortable.”
“I essentially wear a uniform,” he said. “I don’t stray very much.”
So, on any given day, you can expect to see Berthiaume sporting basic jeans, a basic white T-shirt, and a stylish pair of boots. Not one for accessories, a basic leather belt is about all he adds to the ensemble. Here, Berthiaume is wearing:
WHITE T-SHIRT: From Topman in Vancouver. A basic white T-shirt is always in style, says Berthiaume.
JEANS: From Bluenotes. “They are very old, and they are my favourite jeans. I love them.”
BELT: Not one to wear a lot of accessories, he opts for only a basic brown leather belt to finish his work-day look.
BOOTS: These brown suede boots are from ASOS, a British online fashion and beauty store, which Berthiaume loves to buy from. “I shop online quite a bit.”
On occasion, Berthiaume will wear a watch. But, in general, he’s stopped wearing accessories. “When you work with your hands, these get in your way sometimes,” he explained.
Even for events, Berthiaume prefers not to dress very formally. Rather than a formal suit or tuxedo, he prefers “nice black leather boots, black skinny jeans, a nice fitted white dress shirt and a black leather jacket.”
“When it’s formal, I will not wear a lot of colour — or it will be one piece,” he said. “But if I’m casual, I will wear some colour.”
Berthiaume recommends guys get a good capsule wardrobe, which should include a white T-shirt, a white dress shirt, black and blue jeans, a nice pullover sweater that can be worn with jeans, leather boots and canvas shoes, and a nice leather or denim jacket.
“That’s always a good investment,” he said. “And I’d go for quality over quantity any day.”
Berthiaume prefers designing women’s wear. “I like just basic, real-feminine silhouettes. I love a good jacket … And I love evening wear.”
Berthiaume studied fashion design at the world-renowned Blanche Macdonald Centre, a beauty college in Vancouver. After assisting fashion designers in Vancouver for about a year, he returned to his hometown of Regina a year ago. He currently works as assistant to veteran Saskatchewan fashion guru Dean Renwick, who is internationally recognized for his designs.
