I should note that I'm in the market for a suit for summer wedding season, not sure if there is much I can do with only one day in the city.

So where should I go? Coming from Washington, DC BTW where we have most of the chain stores.

Leatherfoot is a must, and why not get measured at Spier Mackay while you're downtown.

+1 for Leatherfoot.

 

If streetwear (with shoes like Alden and Viberg) is your thing check out Lost & Found. www.shoplostfound.com

Spier Mackay looks really nice. Do you know if they do suit separates in-store? They do not on their website.

 

Sadly, although my waist is a 6" drop from my shoulders, my thighs definitely are not!

Queen St W: Nomad, Gravitypope, Jonathan+Olivia (meh), Sydneys'. All streetwear. Checkout their respective websites.

                  

Yorkville: Streetwear- Working Title, Want Apothecary, Uncle Otis, Serpentine (for your inner goth)

               Classic Menswear- Nicolas (pseudo street), Harry Rosen (cookie cutter), Leatherfoot

 

Haven is a little out of the way but if you're into Japanese niche brand then it's a must. Feel free to PM if there was a certain aesthetic you're looking at.

I'm pretty sure that Spier and Mackay will swap trousers from different size/fit suits as long as they have them in stock. Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure that I've heard this. Always worth asking.

They do.  Its not on the website as an option, and its not marketed as "seperates", you would just need to make a note in your order that you need size X trouser.

Hey guys,

Harry Rosen private sale is on. Some decent initial markdowns.

I just got the email too. Is that what you are referring to or do you mean merchandise is already marked down in store?

It's marked down in secret. If you see an item you like, you have to ask the sales staff if it's on sale.

I had this happen once. Lazy a-hole didn't bother to come to the door to deliver the package while I was home. Just marked it delivered and called it a day.  It turns out my local post office had it. Then, when I went to pick it up, there were duties owing, and nobody told me, so I had to come back with $$$ to pay the duty. :brick:

 

It reminded me of that one scene in The Weatherman where the main character gets chewed out by his dad for not carrying money.  

When to local post office to check today. Still no sign of my shoes. I'm not sad, I'm just pissed. Now things are getting complicated as it's from the US. Already let to seller know to contact USPS to open a case. But likely USPS will continue to be USPS and Canada Post will continue to be Canada Post and I'll get my money back in 2017! :censored:

Hey guys,

Regarding the sale at the Outlet: after the kicker is applied, the Tom Ford shirts come out to $159 + tax and the RLBL shirts are $46 + tax.

That comes out to about $138US for TF and $40US for RLBL (after taxes).

Goes to show that canucks can find good deals!

I'm glad what happened to you just happened to me, at least after all. They magically find the package somewhere and started tracking it again. It's now at the post office for me to pick up.

So where should I go? Coming from Washington, DC BTW where we have most of the chain stores.

To add to @John-Galt 's impressive list of stores:

 

Queen St. West Neighbourhood:

 

Due West, near Spadina Avenue, has a strong focus on outerwear. They carry most of the popular outerwear brands (Canada Goose, Mackage, Moose Knuckles) and some streetwear (McQ, Kenzo, Project A). They also carry some "SF-approved" brands like Sunspel and Norwegian Rain.

- I also like te koop, which is nearby. Their focus is on bags: some brands include Kyoto-based Hanpu, Herschel, Fjallraven and Filson. 

- Also on Queen St. West is Dutil, known to be one of Toronto's specialty stores on denim with a pretty decent selection.

- If you continue west on Queen - past Sydney's and Nomad - you'll find Park & Province directly across from Trinity-Bellwoods Park, a store  with a more laidback, slightly preppy vibe. They focus on quality brands: they're the only shop I know in town that carries Portuguese Flannel, Apolis and TCG (formerly Thorocraft). They also carry 3sixteen.

- If you like Oliver Spencer, they have a store just before Ossington Street, where gravitypope stands. Fred Perry and Stussy (Stussy is gone, thanks for the heads up @Master-Classter) have their own shops by that intersection too!

 

- Turn right at Ossington and you will soon find Lost & Found, one of my favourite shops. The owners are nice and they carry some cool brands (if you like Viberg, Golden Bear or Trickers, watch out!) This street is where you'll find Jonathan + Olivia, as well as I Miss You Man (a curated vintage store that focuses on higher-end brands) and Tiger of Sweden's boutique.

 

Further West:

 

Love & Greed, by the Drake Hotel. They have an interesting brand mix but I haven't been there yet as I seldom find myself in that part of town.

Blue Button Shop (Dundas West/Dufferin) focuses on hard to find Japanese brands as well as homeware. Kapital, Anachronorm and other niche Japanese brands abound, as well as Merz B. Schwanen.

The Future of Frances Watson (further on Queen West) which caters to both sexes. They also focus on denim, and the store has a bit of a homey, humble vibe to it. The owners are nice too.

Gerhard Supply has a stronger focus on Canadian brands (OSC Cross, Arc'teryx Veilance, 18 Waits), with some decent foreign brands (Buttero, Hestra) in the mix.

 

Yorkville:

 

- CNTRBND is one of the more popular high-end streetwear stores in the neighbourhood. They carry Thom Browne there, as well as brands such as Hood By Air and Off White.

TNT (inside Yorkville Village) carries a large array of streetwear. The only store in the city that carries Yohji Yamamoto.

- capsule focuses on sneakers and streetwear. They have two stores in the area.

- In terms of CM, there's also V Hazelton and Via Cavour. Suitsupply also has their store in the neighbourhood.

 

Out of all the stores mentioned so far, my favourite stores are (in no particular order):

 

- Park & Province 
- Uncle Otis

- Haven

- Lost & Found

- Working Title

- Leatherfoot

Last I checked that Stuzzy store at Ossington/Queen is actually closed. Not sure what happened, as in if they're moving or something but a few weeks ago I saw it all papered window-like.

Just to point out, Johnathan and Olivia have some Acne Studios items on sale (other stuff too) if anyone is interested.  Denim for 200 shoes 250-299.
