Hey all,

Thought I'd put this here for the Ontario fam. Suitsupply has an outlet sale in Canada, (apparently first time in over a year). Use Passcode: BIGOUTLET
http://suitsupply.com/outlet

P.S Some great deals to be had. I saw a fully canvassed suit for $330 CAD...

Edit: I want to add, I didn't see the prior posts so I know this post looks kind of a troll douche move, but it's unintentional. :laugh:
No offense taken :) I checked the Suitsupply website to see what they have as well.

It looks like the withholding of the masks at the border was solved. I want to apologize if I offended anyone with my don't buy U.S. product rant. It's hard to keep stay levelheaded when you realize the incompetent leadership south of the border can directly impact you. I hope you all are doing well and keeping safe.

I mean, the incompetent leadership in our own country has a more direct impact on you, but ok.

Unfortunately, we're already in this mess now because of them, so let's hope we can get through this sooner, despite all of them.

Stay healthy.

You didn't offend anyone. You're absolutely right. We should be buying Canadian and supporting Canadian businesses. The Americans will always think "America first" and that does not depend on which monkey is at the helm. In the same way, we should always think "Canada first" and even if the cost to our pocket is a few extra bucks, we should buy and support Canadian businesses because our dollars stay circulated in the country.

I know this is outside Toronto, but most cobblers would carry a few different brands of leather conditioner.

Fix em up shoe repair in Barrie carries Bick 4. If you want Lexol or anything else, just call ahead and ask him to make an order.

I found out that Canadian Tire carries the Lexol leather cleaner that I'm looking for, so I'll have to brave the wild and make a trip there on Monday.

I do want to use Fix Em Up or that Aurora shop for my Alden dress shoes, whose heal and (possibly) the sole are nearing the end of its life.

I will also check out Canadian Tire for Lexol.

I wouldn't use Family Shoe Repair in Aurora. Look at what they did to another member's vintage pair of Florsheims:


That should never have left the shop.

Stick with Corey in Barrie, you can check out his work on facebook. Plus he has won an award at an international competition against other cobblers. I know that's not the be all and end all. But no cobbler in Toronto has ever won an award at these competitions. Canadian cobblers from Sudbury, Barrie, Thunder Bay, and Vancouver have won, including the grand title.

If they were sold by a Canadian retailer, sure. I'm not saying boycott everything not made in Canada, I'm saying buy local, buy national.

America dominates Canada in too may respects for this to even be a thing........like when Quebec wanted to leave the union thinking they can survive on their own LOL

Thanks again. Found a couple of suits that will work nicely for me, so these were good deals, considering. Can't wait till arrival.

Gents.....I’ve just listed a few items in the Toronto FS thread - thanks in advance for looking!

Also, I’ll be listing a bunch of suits, including Tom Ford, Etro, and Dolce & Gabbana.....all size 38/48 R. All are gently worn and have working cuffs, trousers have enough fabric to accommodate any alterations to the waist and/or length.
