What is the difference between MTO and MTM? I'd like to order MTM suiting, which appears to be an option under "custom" although I don't see a way to choose suits, only shirts.
You're right. Carmina is a bit cheaper over there than in Canada after duties and import fees (which are crazy)   When is sales season?
I'm planning to head to paris a little bit later in the summer.   I don't suppose the word affordable and Paris go together? Would love to introduce some unique french fashion into my wardrobe but don't want to break the bank. Any suggestions?   The only thing I really have in mind is stopping by Carmina right now
  I'm curious, who is your competition in Ottawa? From my recollection MTM selection was limited to Holts (on its way out), Harry Rosen (different price point) and maybe the tailors that do roadshows.

I've been looking into alternatives to Luxottica in my search for sunglasses without breaking the bank.

 I must admit it seems like a shame that I've put in so much towards my shoes and still have an average sock wardrobe. I've been considering Soxy Socks recently to be more creative.
 The approach I've used is to have the products thrown in when I order the shoe (trees, polish, conditioner etc.). If you're looking for a polish within Canada consider Leatherfoot. They are a member here and they carry a decent variety of shoe care products. I've been pleased with their service. 
 I had the same question earlier in the year and decided to pass on the Amoks as I had 2 pairs of Clarks. As you said, the Amoks are a nicer, dressier shoe but as someone else recommended to you, I found it better to put my money towards the other gaps I had. I decided the next chukkas I'd buy would be the Dundees if I was going for a more formal chukka. Reading what you wrote you seem to have Dark Brown Clarks ChukkaTan ElginChili Dalton There's lots of room in there for...
I'm a big fan of this shoe. I hope to pick up something very similar one day.
