Esquire.com: So how’d you hook up with Club Monaco?
Patrick J. Adams: Really it was them. They reached out to me. I’d been interested in doing something like this before. I grew up in Toronto, and Club Monaco is really part of the growing up experience there. So when we were looking for something like this to do, it just seemed like a natural fit. It’s a place that I’ve always liked to shop, and I like that it was originally a Canadian company, so it was a perfect fit.
ESQ: You’re wearing their classic Kennedy fit in the campaign. Why the Kennedy?
PJA: They’re comfortable. I spend a lot of time in suits, obviously [laughs] and when I get out of work, the clothes that I put on have to be comfortable. That’s my number one rule. And when I was working with Club Monaco those were the pants that I put on. The way I can tell I’m going to like something is if I walk off-set and put something on and I just want to keep on wearing them. And that was exactly how I felt with these. And this summer, especially, I found myself wearing chinos more than I ever have before. You can roll the bottoms up and just get really comfortable. They’re easy, but they still look good. You can go out to a nice dinner and never have to change.

USA has renewed “Suits,” ordering 16 episodes of the drama for its fourth season.
The law firm-set drama ranked in the top five of TV’s primetime scripted series in adults 18-49 during third quarter this year, helping USA maintain its spot as the #1 cable network throughout Q3.
In addition to the season four renewal, “Suits” creator and showrunner Aaron Korsh has inked an overall with Universal Cable Prods. that will continue his work on the USA drama and allow him to develop new scripted series.
“As a leading cable drama, ‘Suits’ is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, prez of the network. “Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season.”
A love letter to family and nature — that’s what Patrick J. Adams achieves with his photography.
The Suits actor is currently exhibiting his first show, Sea/Land, at 134 Ossington, also known as Oz Studios. His lusciously detailed photographs focus on Haida Gwaii, also known as the former Queen Charlotte Islands, in British Columbia. Over 10 years of work hangs on the walls in this gallery, and each photo shows the love and respect that Adams has for nature and for the way of life that the people of the Islands live daily.
“This is a community that lives by the sea and the land, and everything that happens, in those two environments, how they interact, how they conflict, decides everything,” says Adams. “In experiencing that, there’s a sense of something true going on, and I try to capture that in my pictures.”
I sat down with Adams on a wobbly bench in the tiny gallery, surrounded by his many fans, to chat with him briefly about the photos on the wall before us. Adams shot several of his photos in what looks like puzzle pieces — tiny sequential photographs that he pieced together to create a sense of the grandeur and size of nature in the community where his sister and his nephew made their home.
The juxtaposition of decay and life in his photographs interested me. Having lived on the West Coast myself, I recognized much of the windblown sense of sea, driftwood and nature at your fingertips. Many of the photographs were fascinating, showing light playing over the sand and sky, and Adams’ nephew, Fisher, a prominent figure exploring his world. One particular photo, of Fisher beside a large fin whale carcass on a beach, was especially interesting. Adams explains his thought process behind it.
