Pedro is a menswear journalist and writer, as well as a podcaster and radio producer, focusing on why clothing and dressing matters. He applies the same social, historic and cultural approach to watch writing and reporting as he does to clothing.

He has written a book on tailoring history with another due in 2021 about building and caring for a sustainable wardrobe. He has also written for Canadian, US and European magazines and newspapers on style and culture, produced a number of radio documentaries for CBC Radio (where he worked for over a dozen years) and wrote/co-hosted the “Unbuttoned” podcast, about menswear historian G. Bruce Boyer’s life in clothes. Pedro is based in Toronto, Canada, so watch out for non-American spellings of common words.

His other passions include a love of Cuban cigars and building scale models.
