There exists in uptown Saint John, a mid-high end, uber hip and modern men’s clothing store, Colwell’s Mens (Brunswick Square, Level 3). More often than not, you will find this handsome bundle of energy behind the counter, ready to assist and lend his impeccable fashion sense to anyone who needs a little help. With a couple of decades under his belt at Colwell’s and a unique flare for true gentlemen’s style, Dan is the man. Stop into Colwell’s, have a chat, and treat yourself to a piece of clothing that will have you walking just a little taller than before.
