I am not familiar with any tailors near union station. I know there is one in Royal Bank Plaza and another on Front called Walter Beauchamp but I am not aware of others. What type of suit did your tailor make for you?

The only fabrics that I asked was an Acorn heavyweight (>200 gr) Oxford and he mentioned that the price would have been $225.

Did your tailor give you his opinion on Michel's shirts?

$125 seems reasonable. My tailor thought he charged a lot but was not sure. He did not comment on the quality.

As for Ridolfi, the have a bunch of overstock shirts in standard sizes that they sell for approx $50. You can always buy one of those and then if you are happy with it, take the MTM route.

BTW, thanks for the tailor recommendations. I'll check out the one on Yonge at Castlefield

Steeles just east of Keele.

Ridolfi Shirtmakers - 2901 Steeles. Its essentially a little storefront at the front of the factory. The little storefront has all of the cotton cloth books for their MTM shirts and a good number of overstock shirts (with some boxed higher quality ones). Prices may have gone up so I can't guarantee $50.

The alterations shop on Yonge and Castlefield is great as long as you don't mind a scottish woman doing all of the pinning.

Ah, yes. I pass by there every day.

Should I mind a Scottish woman? Is she especially nasty?

Its in the underground I believe in the royal bank plaza. I didn't have a suit made, I took one there to get it altered (took in the sides) and he did a brilliant job. I will be going there to get more alterations this week, so I'll post the name later.

No. She is great. But, some guys think that only older men can properly fit a dsuit...

May I suggest another shirtmaker...

Shirtfit Addesso Dr. Near 400 and Steeles. You could go through me as I am a custom clothier who uses Shirtfit but heck if you're in the area...stop in.

They are wonderful and easy to work with. I love their work and have had over 70 shirts made for clients etc.

Their number is 905-760-8033. Tell them Damon sent you.

Not sure of the cost but let me tell you that cost doesn't tell you the whole story...

I have used Maxwells and others but I always find myself seeking out higher quality with complete custom. Once you discover the difference...you will understand I hope.

Two suits (regular fabric) + 4 shirts: $1099

You pay the above prices at time of fitting, and when they deliver, they charge COD for GST and shipping:
Shirt: $12
Suit: $90

I am thinking about getting my first suit for interviews and I'd say that I am interested in making business with them. Do you know if they happen to have any deal for regular wool suit + shirts? I am not interested in cool wool as I'm living in Québec.

Do I have to be 'on their list' or something like that? And, what is the delay like? They come in Québec City on October 6th or 7th; I would need this suit by about mid January or the beginning of February. Is that even possible for them to be that quick?

Yes. They have a wide variety of wool for suits and cottons for shirts.
No, you don't need to be on their list.
