Buyers Select focuses on key buyers, who share their ten favourite pieces from Pitti Connect brands.
Christopher Casuga is the founder and chief operating officer of CNTRBND. A destination shopping experience with a minimal aesthetic, the company currently has 5 locations across Canada. Inspired by his travels throughout the world, Casuga wondered why certain brands weren't being sold in Canada, which led to the creation of CNTRBND in 2012.
As a collaborator, Casuga partnered with OFF WHITE and ALYX, bringing their first brick and mortar stores to Toronto.
We speak to Casuga as he expounds on his 10 favorite pieces from Pitti Connect brands.
I have always been a fan of a cool varsity jacket, and BARACUTA delivers here. The color combination and mix of leather and wool alongside the patches is what I find very interesting. BARACUTA has always been known for its heritage DNA and quality, so I'm sure this piece will be better in person.

This is a very nice corduroy shirt. The color and fit looks like something to add to your wardrobe that would be a staple.
