For the second installment of the ‘Everyday Carry’ we caught up with one half of 1 LOVE T.O., Bryan Brock, to take a look at his daily necessities.
Bryan Co-founded 1LoveT.O. in 2007 with good friend Tyrone Edwards (T-Rexxx). The story goes that in 2007 Tyrone was approached by then Mayor of Toronto, David Miller, to create a float for the 40th Anniversary of the Caribana Festival. Brainstorming for a way to epitomize the true essence of Toronto culture the duo came up with “1 Love”. The phrase, inspired by Milton Glaser’s ‘I Love NY’, was more inclusive and really captured the diverse culture of the city. After printing up some tees with the slogan for the event, the guys hit the parade with the Mayor and Drake’s DJ – Future the Prince along side a group of 150 people sporting the tee. After two years of constant requests for the t-shirts the guys did their first full run and started the blog which has become a staple for all things Toronto, covering the nightlife, art, music, and fashion scene.
