For all you folks who might not be able to check out the excitement in the near future, here’s a glimpse of what we have in store our new store!

Of course, we’ve kept it true to our focus on cool vintage menswear, and our signature ladies collection, but we were also able to display our collection of housewares, books, VHS, accessories, art, and some of our archive of vintage photographs that truly showcase the metamorphosis of all things {PAST}, {PRESENT}, and {FUTURE}.

We are so excited to join the community here on James St. North District!

Enjoy, and thanks to Hawk & Sparrow, and everyone for all the support, and all those who helped make this all possible. And of course, a special thanks to our timeless emblem and mascot – The Eye of Faith for always keeping us on track to our destinies.

3 Years in the making, and it’s all happening . . .

EYE ON THE PRIZE VIII  - EYE OF FAITH VINTAGE

For those who know us best, here at The Eye of Faith, you know that we relish in having a sense of adventure. It’s a facet of our being, deeply inset in our blood. Everything we do, we try to imbue with a certain fearlessness.

In fact, our name is derived from this particular philosophy. We are often asked from whence we drew upon the name for The Eye of Faith, and it is simple really. It is a metaphor as old as man, reaching as far back as time, itself. To believe in anything one must have faith. We keep our eye on our faith, and in turn, we are forever guided in that direction. Having faith in the eye gives us power to dream, and to move forward with our goals and visions.

EYE ON THE PRIZE V  - EYE OF FAITH VINTAGE

And so we hope you too will do the same, and believe in The Eye of Faith. Many of you do, and come back time and time again, granting us much joy. The support gives us continual courage to dare and dream and move forward with our goal of enlightenment and freedom to be you and me.

In the end, only you can dare yourself to dream. Believe the dream and before you know it, it is yours.

That is what we have learned. That is what we know to be.

We will always have our +EYE ON THE PRIZE+

and for that, we will always win.

Will you do the same?

+

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

-Henry Thoreau

E.O.F. Weather Report {Winter 2013/14}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What we’re working with this winter . . .

So, the weather report is in, and things look grim. Not only because the weather is near infuriatingly cold, but also because black is back. With a vengeance. Then again, when is black not a thing.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

{Sage}

Stuff like that kind of bothers me, because season after season you have to hear the reiterations of what’s in and what’s not (boho, metallics, white, nautical, army)…it all comes around. It all ends up being the same. I don’t believe in these rules, and instead choose to pick an inspiration as it fancies me in the morning.

Lucky enough for me, my penchant for black lately matches up perfectly with what’s in vogue, and twenty years from now, it would still.

Now don’t go on thinking that Canada is always awash in snow and always cold. In fact, we had a very mild Fall, and just the other week it still felt like Spring. But it seems like the Gods of Winter have begun to swell, and are very quickly taking over the lands, so when it comes to getting dressed to impress, we must always remember taking care of numero uno.

Aaron Duarte- EOF Weather Report (Winter 2013:14} - Detail on Accessories

{Rings and things make an outfit look right. Hats keep the ears warm.}

Goal is not to be cold. So I usually always make sure to wear a hat. Most often a toque (even though my hair has gotten lustrously long and I wish I could show it off more :-p).

I also always carry with me a pair of gloves; usually leather, and lined in fur if you can find them. Leather gives off a chic but tough vibe, and also doubles as protection from harm (as strangers will be more prone to think you could be a potential attacker). [here’s an idea]

Above all, the main piece that brings it all together is the coat. You need a coat that is warm, but you never have to compromise on style. I like to stick to leather, as I find it the perfect barrier to the cold winds and the wetness that usually results in winter. I have two main go-tos. One is a long leather hooded trench, and the other is a vintage 1980s number that is more of a bomber style with a detachable wool collar. Either/or give me the feeling of bad-assness that is essential to keeping up my spirit in this wild weather.

Aaron Duarte- EOF Weather Report (Winter 2013:14} - selfie

{At the Hawk & Sparrow Flea}

I never shy away from bright colours, and most recently have been obsessed with finding things metallic. My favourite being, a liquidy silver number that reminds me of Kurt Cobain’s Jean-Paul Gaultier look he sports in his “Heart-Shaped Box” video.

You can also work it out with accessories. I enjoy rings and things.

But, whatever the weather one must always feel at ease

with his or her own true spirit. The one that

wakes up in the morning with you.

Mine just so happens to

yearn to be

bad

That’s all you can do.

As the tide rolls, you must roll with it. . .

So with that, we drifted with the tide to Hamilton, Ontario where we will continue catering to your {past}, {present}, and {future} needs, but with some new surroundings.

Hamilton is a historical city with a burgeoning art community, so we couldn’t be more excited to call this place home. Looking forward to meeting lots of cool, creative, and interesting people, and also for what treasures we might find while living here!

Speaking of which, you might want to see what treasures WE have in store this month, and to help inaugurate us onto the scene, we will be taking part in The Hawk & Sparrow Flea on December 1st at Hawk & Sparrow on 126 James Street North. 

We will be there from 10AM- 6PM with a selection of fine vintage menswear, womenswear, LPs, books, vintage photographs, magazines, and decor to help make your life that much more beautiful and intriguing.
