Justin Timberlake and his best pal, Trace Ayala, visited The Hudson Bay Company Queen street store on Jul 16 to promote their clothing brand, William Rast!
Trace and Justin talked about their clothing line and answered fans’ twitter questions. It was just awesome seeing the legendary Justin Timberlake in the flesh!
ps – Thanks to HBC for the refreshing water and cookies 🙂
