I want to look "professional" without dropping large amounts of money on MTM clothing.
Is Tip Top Tailors a good option for relatively inexpensive clothes that still maintain a professional look?
I'll echo Birks and Grey Socks, and add that you take a peek at Gotstyle at Bathurst and Wellington. Their lower end stuff is in a similar price range to Tip Top. It may not be a whole lot better in terms of quality, but they have a variety of lines that fit a variety of body types. I assume the cheaper stuff is all fused, but Im not certain. You might get lucky with something there for about $600
Harry Rosen outlet is good. Holt Renfrew Last Call always has pile of "Holt Renfrew" labeled suits (I presume made by Coppley?) in the Tip Top price range.
Off The Cuff is a resale store near Yonge and Eglinton. Selection can be hit or miss, but the prices aren't too bad. Worth a look.
Do you have Hitch's ebay link? I can't find it on Ebay.
You should have no trouble at Gotstyle. If you visit their website, you can watch a tedious video made by the owner in which she describes the various suit offerings and notes the body type they flatter. Again, tedious, but informative if you want to try to source the same brands from cheaper outlets. I've found Harry Rosen Outlet and Holt Renfrew Last Call very hit or miss with sizes (I'm a 42R). They always seem to have something in my size though, and I have seen a lot of 42L and 44L.
The Hugo Boss Outlet at Vaughn Mills no longer exists ( I believe?) but you can check for yourself if you visit HRLC.
I know of no good places in Toronto to buy quality shoes at a discount. If you know your size in AE, then the web is your best bet.
