Can you elaborate on what they did during the "full Garrison experience"?
Quote: Originally Posted by JohnEnglish OK, a quick summary of my visit: not worth the time. The place looks sharp and the guys dress the part but their idea of customer service is trying to get you to spend as much money as possible.

I had told them that I only wanted...

Frankly, I was surprised with the price as it seemed like the suits a Fifth were $1000. I...

Quote: Originally Posted by GradSchooler I looked around at a few others on the internet, but prices seemed to be much higher than my budget ($1000-$1500). Does anyone have any recommendations? I've been to Fifth on King (now known as Garrison), Trend Tailors and Spiro's. I've had suits made by the first two. Being at these three shops, each of them definitely has their niche market. IMO: - Garrison is catered to more of the Corporate/Banker...
ty OP - ordered a few pairs
I'd recommend Shoe Healer (https://www.shoehealer.co.uk) - Excellent Services and Pricing

Full custom suits starts at low $1000s and they are 100% locally made in Toronto!! I've bought a bunch of suits recently but will definitely give them a serious thought on my next purchase. They are located at the downtown core on 26 Wellington St., very convenient. Anyone has any...
