Clothing keeps people warm and looking fashionable, but its most important duty is replenishing bellybutton lint. Keep navels stocked with today's Groupon: for $29, you get $60 worth of apparel and accessories at Schad + Schad Blü, located in the ByWard Market.
Schad + Schad Blü—comprised of neighbouring boutiques manned by husband-and-wife team Andre Shad and Chantal Biro-Schad—dispenses men's and women's clothing from European, American, and Canadian designer collections. Trunks get hugs all day in T-shirts from the likes of John Varvatos ($60), and denim designs from lines such as 7 For All Mankind shield legs from the elements and from wild soccer balls ($199+). Beneath garb, comfort torsos in the fashion-forward embrace of undergarments from Diesel and Miel ($15–$35). The shops’ arrays of accessories include footwear, bags, and sunglasses, such as striking shades by Mercury that impart intrigue while adding legitimacy to writing people tickets ($25).
