Driving loafers are 50 GBP ex vat.

You'll likely get a better fitting pair through a MTM service like that, rather than checking through Toronto shops who have pretty barren offerings for RTW pleated trousers, if you can find them at all.

 

Out of curiosity, what did you base your measurements on, a well fitting pair of pants or actual body measurements? I've been meaning to try them but don't have much confidence in my self measurement skills.

y'all are over-thinking this pleated trouser thing.........try on a pair of J Crew slim fit pleated pants and see if the look suits you. If so, order from where you like.

In other news, if you're a 10/10.5 in TF Shoes, Winners on Bloor has this beauty for $599 (and it has a Dainite sole):

Saw these last weekend. Was close to pulling the trigger, but the suede was a little too worn for me near the heel.

I was wondering the same. BTW do peeps think those look cheap or really nice (on a screen)? I can't decide lol

Just checked out Nordstrom's at the Eaton Centre. It's a really nice set-up. Nothing terribly unique, but the curating was good and struck a nice balance. You can tell they did a lot of market research. Harry's was a ghost town....good riddance!

Pretty much the same lineup as Saks?

I'm curious about the brand mix. I'm hoping for at least a couple that strike my interest.

(PLEASE tell me they have Eidos.)

@KaleidoscopicK

 

No Eidos...the classic menswear game is pretty safe (and weak). Just the standards (Boss, Canali, Ted Baker) and some local content (Jack Victor). Nothing exciting on that end at all. At least that's what a gathered in my first pass. 

 

I'd say the store operates much better as a whole, it has a boutique feel despite being a bit larger. While the suiting is probably a no go for the more discerning gents here, I could easily see people flowing from one section to another and getting fully kitted out. For example I saw a pair of jeans, some workout wear and some accessories I'll probably be koping later. I'd consider that a success.

 

@clarksdb

 

That was my fear; to be honest I didn't really see where they would fit in the market. However, they've cleverly gone a bit downscale allowing for more regular floor traffic. You can buy a pair of $600 track pants if you want, but there are nice ones for $80 as well.It just seems a much better fit for the broader Toronto market by not being quite as fashion forward. I could easily see it as a strong option for casual wear. Since I get all of my suits made and am not the  22 year old child of a Chinese millionaire Saks is of little interest to me from a pricing and a stylistic standpoint.

Just an fyi guys, that I reopened the proxy offer for another day or two!

I agree, the store has a nice vibe, with the lounge, cafe and restaurant integrated nicely.

 

Tailoring is weak though they had Pal Zileri which is nice.  Streetwear seemed quite strong. Shoes were extremely weak, only some Santoni fatte a mano for $800 were of any interest. Rest was boring.
