I noticed a recent email from Herring Shoes similarly calling out that starting Feb 1, they can’t ship Loake to Canada or the US. Herring did note that some Herring private label shoes are made by Loake and the ones that are can continue to be purchased - so that may be an option for some going forward. I assume this change is to protect the local distributor’s market in Canada. As others have said, Loake is sold at around $575 CDN (seriously – check out Walking on a...
To chime in, I don't think it matters where something is made. There are lots of tailors in Toronto making suits or commissioning them from one of the larger makers. Just because the tailor offers a basted fitting, it does not mean the $800-$1000 annual suit sale suite is bespoke. Toronto tailors use machines too and pre-set patterns. I don't think an $800 suit made on the Danforth will have lots of handwork on the inside. Its just not economical to do that. That does...
Here is one from the side. Pretty bad photo again.The taper is OK. I don't like pants that get too narrow at the bottom.This one probably shows the pants the best of the ones that I have taken.
Here is the suit from Raji: The cloth is a no name Super 110s - I prefer 100s, 110s and 120s and usually a bit heavier in weight than most. I also will only choose the bolts he has in stock as I find swatches from a book way too small to really tell if I am going to like it. This is a no name cloth imported by Montreal based British Woollens. I just can't seem to get any good photos. Of the ones I took this is the best I can do. I only use a wide angle lens which...
Wanted to provide an update. I just picked up my new suit from Raj. Very pleased with it and will try and post photos in the next week or so.

If your suit is not fitting right, I would just take it back and have him fix it. Like others, I do think it is tight causing the pulling and that is probably an easy fix. As for length, I think part of the problem is the camera location. Nobody looks at your suit from such a low vantage point and that camera location will make it look short. I think once the jacket is let out, you will be much happier with the length. For full disclosure, I have 3 suits made by Raji...
Lots of threads on tailor shops that make suits and ones that do alterations, including some that are very recent. Try searching againt - Trend, Spiros, Raji, Garrison, Stavros, many others...
