    Do you have any idea what the prices are like for both?

    Is this the little store in the PATH between CCW and Scotia Plaza? I walked by a few times but always in a hurry. Would love to hear people's experience....

    Nice shop and the guy seams very nice. Very British selection in terms of aesthetics, so not my cup of coffee.

    Do they carry Loake and Cheaney only? Apparently Loake 1880 line and "Joseph Cheaney" line are pretty great bang for the buck, according to 9 dozen various threads..

    Agreed that the owner knows his stuff, but the shoes are way way over priced.

    Problem now is, Loake won't allow UK stores to ship to Canada. So you're either paying his price or looking elsewhere.

    Had the pleasure to chat with him as well. Awesome guy with much knowledge about the industry. I love his offerings of Cheaney.

    Quick PSA gents. J Fitzpatrick summer sale on final markdowns.

    Shoes are of very nice quality and finish. Standard fitting lasts.

    Landed duty in/CAD looking between 425-500 for most models.


    Exchange rate on the pound is great right now. 1.69

    ^^ This.
    Last year I bought JFP navy suede oxfords and was more then happy. Today just took Madison burgundy suede loafers. Discount + GBP/CAD makes it a great deal.

    Considering the Brown Museum Loafer now. I have an MTO on order with him due in the fall.

    Question. Do you plan to wear them with suit or just casually? I ask because I somehow cannot get myself to wear any other loafer then suede. And then, even if it is with sport coat and pants, it is more casual, ie no tie, no socks etc :-0

    Oh no, I prefer suede in almost everything to be honest...

    I never wear suits, more of a jacket/trouser guy but not frequent. Work is very casual, chinos and a shirt is fine. Can wear any footwear, trainers included.


    Go for the suede, I just have a few holes I need to fill that isn't burgundy or navy suede. Although Navy suede is actually pretty versatile.

    Holt Renfrew store in Square One is a major disappointment. Really no Nudie jeans or Naked and Famous? Yet they are carrying Diesel jeans...

    Do the Yorkville & Yorkdale locations carry them?

    I find the Square One location to be okay. I didn't expect the selection to be very good, so I was pleasantly surprised that they carry Barena, as well as Zespa and some other "SW&D" brands there. It could have been better, but it could have been much worse.

    Suit-wise, they cary Pal Zileri and and Corneliani. They also carry PS by Paul Smith but I didn't bother taking a look at their stuff in further detail. I may be missing another suit brand. If you like Orlebar Brown, they have some stuff tucked away in a corner where the socks are.

    In terms of traditional luxury designer labels for men, I only saw Valentino (very small selection) and Gucci footwear. Square One intends to be the Yorkdale of the west GTA, so perhaps the selection will change for the better. Of course, they need to see the demand for higher end labels before bringing it in.

    I sense snark in that statement. [​IMG]

    I haven't seen Holts carry that many pairs of Nike, New Balance and Addidas before, if at all. On the other hand, their selection of Marcelo Burlon and Off-White suggest that they are aware of the mainland Chinese UTM students in Mississauga.

    What is the going rate for shoe resoling these days? I've never done one, but the heel on my AE shoe is coming apart.

    Novelty quoted me $125.
