“Gotstyle Menswear” Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelor: Kabir!
Kabir was born on the island of Trinidad and immigrated to Toronto with his family at the age of 5. Growing up in Etobicoke, Kabir discovered his first love: swimming. As a full time competitive swimmer, and top ranked junior triathlete, he was able to travel the country training and competing while developing a work ethic and positive outlook that has continued to help him succeed in his post athletic life. Kabir continues to train and compete with a masters swim club and is currently one of the top ranked master’s swimmers in the country.
After earning his license as an industrial mechanic, Kabir quickly moved up the ranks into management and is currently a maintenance superintendent for Canada Post. When he is not managing his staff, or looking for his next real estate investment, he is busy planning his next travel adventure. Over the past year Kabir has dedicated a significant amount of time to his new found passion of cultural/adventure travel. Some of his highlights over the last twelve months have included hiking active volcanoes, surfing in El Salvador, free diving in the Red Sea, dancing until sunrise in Ibiza, and most recently, camping under the stars in the middle of the Sahara desert. The next adventure on the books is tackling the Inca Trail in Peru this fall!
