You like it? I spent about $300 or so on it. It’s from Holt Renfrew, but I’ll shop anywhere. I got these pants from a little Chinese store in Sinclair Centre. They’re a mix of silk and linen – they were only $60. I would never spend thousands of dollars on clothes.

The Nichols Brothers: Play Nice
Jessica Werb

“I think it’s a really good ice breaker to have both of us sit down,” confesses David, flanked by Brent, at the Inventa head office on West Seventh Avenue near Oak Street in Vancouver. Dressed in similar casual white shirts...

Elizabeth Theriault: Just for Kicks
As told to Jessica Werb

Wendy King: Madame President
Brian Hawkes

It’s an amusing irony that the first queen to take command of the formerly men’s-only Vancouver Club is actually a King. Weyerhaeuser senior legal counsel Wendy King, 37, assumes her duties as president of the club’s board of directors next March. Here’s her perspective on how a venerable private institution...

The Bad Boss List
Vicki O’Brien

Welcome to the workplace from hell. On any given day the boss flies into a screaming tantrum, kicking or hitting staff over minor infractions. She rules with an iron fist, berates and belittles employees in public, hires and fires at whim and refuses references to those who quit in disgust.

Where would we see you in this outfit? I’m wearing this to my husband’s Christmas party. I also wore this to last year’s Jack Webster journalism awards, which was quite black tie. How much did you dole out for this...

Inside the Men’s Room
Rafe Mair

Before I became a member of the Vancouver Club, I would sometimes go there for lunch as my dad’s guest. I didn’t know whether to laugh or tremble at the atmosphere: it made a mausoleum look exciting by comparison. My father put me up for membership in 1964, but when...
