Yes Saint Crispin's are something else. It is not every day you get personally measured and advised by Phillip personally, which makes the experience even more memorable. We cordially invite everyone to visit the store for some refreshments and to browse new arrivals from Alden, Carmina, and Frank Clegg. 
For those living in Toronto, we have Phillip Car, owner of St. Crispin's, in store today and tomorrow. Please feel free to stop by to browse and chat.
