We won’t lie, we’re all about upping the number of dapper dudes in YYC and that’s exactly how and why our Scotch & Socks event was born. Upgrades to your wardrobe, small bites and an informal whisky tasting equal a whole lot of fun. Did we mention the free socks?




What is Scotch & Socks?


Scotch & Socks is a men’s focused event held bi-annually at espy. We close down the store to the public and let guys have exclusive access to the entire store for an evening of private shopping.

  • Guys receive one-on-one attention from an espy stylist. They’ll use their expertise to assist and determine what you’re after and what you need to make your wardrobe complete. Office attire, weekend attire or outfits for an upcoming trip, they’ll get you sorted out for the season ahead.
  • Before and during the styling session guys are treated to an informal whisky tasting. We fill your glass up with the top recommendations from some of the best scotch sommeliers in the city. Tasting notes included.
  •  Meat, cheese, bread. We’ve yet to meet a group of guys that weren’t down for a deadly charcuterie board while they shop.
  • Guys receive a free pair of socks of their choosing.
  • As always, our in-house Master Tailor will be on hand to pin any alterations and provide expert advice to any inquiries you might have.
  • Scotch & Socks events usually last 2-3 hours and we’re happy to book you a table anywhere you like for your next stop afterward.
