Custom Suiting Toronto - Page 2

Thanks 7_rocket - that's helpful. Will check 'em out.
I stopped into Suit Supply yesterday, but their MTM section isn't up and running yet. I would be interested in seeing what their quality looks like, given they start at a low OTR price point and this is a MIC MTM (made-in-China made-to-measure).
he told me they have both (bespoke and MTM)
i got a suit at Trend (awaiting my 2nd fitting); got a bunch of seasonal fabric as well, so depending on how this one turns out, i'll probably go back for more CMT work. (this first one i commissioned is also CMT)
I had a consultation at garrison before settling on trend, and the SA wasn't that knowledgeable. But I gotta give it to Michael, he followed up with me over the phone and he addressed any questions that I had unanswered at the time of my visit.
There is a shop near Dufferin and Lawrence that carries a bunch of shirt and suit fabrics from Italy. They supply Rosen's and Holts MTM Shirt fabrics and have a decent but limited selection of suit fabrics. They pick up a bunch of end of season and seconds. Can't remember the name off the top of my head but once I remember I'll chime back in. I think they sell to the public as well.
Trend Custom Tailors (Don Lee) - 306 Sherbourne Street (Sherbourne & Gerrard) - comes up a lot. Pros it's full bespoke. Cons its expensive and Don may be hard to work with (an 'artist').
Fifth on King / Garrison Bespoke - 26 Wellington Street East #101 - Hong Kong, Michael's the man. Pros it's clean modern client focused and reasonably priced. Cons it may be too slick and modern for some and the manufacturing is done in Asia though all fittings done here locally. See review thread below.
Stavros - right in yorkville. I've met these guys. No doubt they make a good suit, but it starts around $3500 and I'm not sure but I think they outsource the work anyway.
Walter Beauchamp - One of Toronto's oldest stores I believe. Haven't seen any pictures or heard anything about them, other than they apparently do real bespoke.
Caruso Fine Tailors - seems to come up several times. Not sure if it's bots/shills plugging the place. No info/reviews that I've seen but might be worth investigating.
Nazzareno at Sartoria Raffa and Franceso Sr. Bespoke (89 Bloor West) and Espinosa Master Tailor- comments section from terrible blogto article. Apparently both these guys were where Harrys/Holts sent work to etc...
Isaac Ely ($3K+) - blogTO article. No idea what they're all about. Also pretty off the beaten track location-wise.
Spiros - avoid avoid avoid, seems to have bad reviews

Studio Kim - (King Street West and Niagara)
Sydney’s (does MTM + tailoring (rarely other stores clothes) – maybe sends out to Studio Kim)
Magic Tailor (opposite Eaton’s Center). Mixed reviews…
Xavier Custom Tailors - 10 St Mary (Yonge and South of Charles)
House of Salgado - 66 Wellington Street West, (inside downstairs)
Walter Beauchamp - 145 Wellington Street West
Trini says - Antonio's in the Colonnade on Bloor does excellent work.
Doxe says - Bulloch Tailors on Colborne St (yonge b/w wellington and king)
