How they met

The two stud­ied law at the Uni­ver­sity of Toronto. They were friends un­til…they were more than that. Now even the kids are in­volved with their cloth­ing line, Bus­tle; Ruth still prac­tises law.

First im­pres­sions

“He sat be­hind me and copied

my work.” — Ruth “Don’t even say stuff like that as

a joke!” — Shawn

“I’m kid­ding; he looked like he

was fun.” — Ruth

“She’s def­i­nitely fun! And smart, ob­vi­ously. Some­times you’re just drawn to some­one.” — Shawn

Work­ing to­gether

“Ruth is so busy with her le­gal prac­tice, so I run the day-to-day of the busi­ness, and Ruth comes up with these great ideas, and I try to ex­e­cute them. Ruth has a re­ally great bal­ance of right and left brain, which may have been one of the things that at­tracted

me to her.” —Shawn

“We’re very sim­i­lar and very dif­fer­ent, which is, I guess, why it works; where we need to be sim­i­lar, we are. I think we’ve al­ways had the same vi­sion of what Bus­tle is about and what

in­spires the brand.” — Ruth
