Mod, can you please help me delete previous post. Issue's been resolved.

And to be fair, the suit was great.

Most unfortunate they decided to cancel - apparently for lack of interest.

For anyone posting here who is potentially interested, please email them to register your interest, and maybe we can get them here in December.

Also he said their pricing is about double Spiros which would mean about $1800.

This seems to run counter to the posts here which put entry level suits about $900 and doing their work offsite.

Have they upped pricing and moved production here as a result??

Did Fifth on King went under? I don't see their store anymore.

Fifth on King has moved to a much larger and better location and is know known as Garrison Bespoke.

Well they were no longer at 5 King Street East so "Fifth on King" wouldn't make sense anymore.....

Checked out Garrison/fifth on king the other day, must say, really nice atmosphere, a bit bigger and nicely designed. I think they might of expanded the cloth selections from before.

His permanent location is up near York University so this downtown event is aimed at bay street folks who do not have the time to venture up north for a suit.

I am not yet sure his prices for the event but I expect them to be competitive with others that actually make suits locally in the Toronto area.

Anyone has a picture of their commissioned suit from Raji?

I'd be interested to see how they accomplish the addition of vents on your suits. Typically, there isn't (enough) material to create vents (center or side) from a no vent suit...

no addition - the jackets are going to be made again.

i pass by the new got style location in toronto on my way home from work all the time and always find they carry some great stuff on a more modern tip. my only issue is the prices. especially now w/ the proliferation of asian-based MTM and online ordering sites, I have difficulty w/ the idea that $700-800 for a half-canvased suit/fused suit is a good price, or $150 for a dress shirt is a good shake. they often have a for MTM suit, shirt and tie for $1000. at first glance it appears to be a great price. the suit is half-canvased, basically altered to fit your body, and their shirts/ties are off the rack, but of very good quality. im curious how this deal compares to say a $500 thick as thieves suit (im close to ordering one of these out of curiosity) a $120 moderntailor shirt (just ordered my first one, decent, but it was a $50 shirt) and a tie from a bargain basement spot like tiedeals or somethin as such. $500 + $120 + $80= $700 even if you went delux on the suit for $50 more and the shirt for say $20 and $30 to get a kiton 7 fold= $800 is it worth it? there is the ease of just walking into a store and getting set up, but people go much farther to save a $200-300 these days. and i suspect you get a better suit out of it.

MTM does not equal MTM. Do you like the general cut? the styling options? the available cloth? the workmanship? the time it takes till delivery? the overall process? All things being equal, if you're into DIY measurements, sure, save a few bucks. If you buy from a store, there is a good chance that they know how to take measurements (if they do it all the time, that is, as opposed to twice a year), and will eat the suit if they mess it up somehow. If you get a TaT suit and something needs to be adjusted, you pay for the alterations, whereas a store MTM would usually include additional alterations. Just a few things to consider.

Any thoughts on them? I was told that all their suits are bespoke and made in Toronto... there was a tailor in the back room, but the majority of work was done in another Toronto facility.
