Any other Edmontonians here? - Page 11

post #151 of 964
Thank - I'll try MyTailor on their next trip here and go from there.

I'm new to the forum - I note that earlier in the thread there was a call for an Alberta SF Tim occasion - has there been any since?

Haven't seen anything. Not sure there are enough of us (maybe a half dozen regular posters).

Could not swing before Sept but would seriously consider the drive up from Cowtown on a fall weekend

I definitely would be up for a SF meet-up in September or October. I think weekday evenings would actually work better for me, but it's tough to say. Being a brand new Edmontonian, I literally know ~10 people in this city; a meet-up would go a long way to meeting new friends and learning about some new places to keep entertained.

Hiya guys, just moved to Edmonton a few weeks ago. Can anyone recommend a tailor here? For now, I only need to do some alteration, but going forward I'd like to explore suit making and shirt making as well. While we're at it, where are some of the best food here? I found the selection to be pretty dismal (and overpriced), unfortunately. The only good place I've ever been is an Ethiopian restaurant (Langano Skies) in Whyte Ave. There are other decent restaurants that I've come across obviously, but that's the only one that I considered good so far.

So, other than Gravity Pope and the ubiquitous mall-stores, where does a guy shop for clothes in this city? (I haven't walked Whyte yet, this year at least.) Also, furniture - any good unique spots? What about a lounge downtown that would work well for a SF-type in his mid/late-20s? (Good music prefered - not overly loud either.) Somebody befriend me...

John the Tailor in the Edmonton City Centre is good for alterations, bespoke suits and MTM shirts.

The Cactus Cafe attached to West Edmonton Mall is great food from Canada's only Iron chef. New Asian Village serves the best Indian food. OPM in south common has great asian fusion food. Soffra downtown does nice Turkish food. Kabsa on Jasper Ave does pretty good, well-priced Arab food. Anything in particular you're looking for?

Not many options, Holt Renfrew, Henry Singer, Harry Rosen, Derks, Eddie's Menswear, Val Berg's (the last 3 being pretty hit and miss.)

Suede and 100 Bar & Kitchen are probably right up your alley.

Sadly, Gravity Pope is your only option.

My parents just furnished their home with pieces from McElheran's Fine Furniture. It's worth checking out if you've got a large budget and like classical furniture.

Not a lounge and not downtown, but the sugarbowl is my favorite place to hang out in Edmonton. Good music, extensive beer list, and good food. Check it out!

I never though to post it here, but did in recent purchases. The Town Shoes in South Edmonton Common was having a buy one get one sale on all clearance stuff. The only models that I would consider wearing were the Frye boots they had- half price, then buy one get one. So I got 2 pairs of Brando Lace boots for $170. I wanted one Lace and one Engineer but I was swimming in the size 10, 9 too small, no 9.5.

Pretty sparse for sizes, but I would say there was close to at least one of each size between the models.

Geez, I saw your post the other day about the Frye Brandos. I already have the lace-ups in Cognac and I have the W&H x Daytons in Black. I really don't need another pair of boots, but the Made in USA Brandos are SUCH great boots in their shape and their quality. I'll likely go check these out.

joey's is good for the price - i always go to the one and south common. if you're into sports, good food and beer and like to lounge around then i recommend a place like original joe's or brewster's. anyway, i am also looking for a good tailor to alter some shirts; i need them to be slimmed down. i see john the tailor has been suggested. are there any tailors in the south side near millwoods perhaps? the only place i've seen is Stitch It inside of Southgate mall. .has anyone ever been there? i would prefer to use a place that is more trustworthy and respectable.
