OK, so I am going to trek down to the Bloor Street store right now.

I am trying to find particular BB items. On the phone, they told me the Canadian website (brooksbrothers.ca) has everything....if it's not on there, it doesn't exist...can someone confirm this? I'm sure they will give you a discount at the store vs. online...but is there more stuff in the stores?

Anyone has recommendation for Peccary glove with Rabbit fur lined?

I was looking at below ones from NMWA but a bit worried about the custom. Wondering if there's any local options I have.

Peccary gloves are already hard to find let alone with rabbit fur.

See if they're willing to ship via post if you don't want to deal with UPS or Fedex.

I have peccary and carpincho gloves from this craftsman in Naples:


It is basically one guy (Mauro) and he can create whatever you want, including exotic colours, not just the online store items. But I've gone with the recommended cashmere lining - I don't know if he has access to rabbit fur. I learned about him through a mention on the Parisian Gentleman blog years ago.

I have a few gloves with cashmere lined, think a rabbit fur lined will be warmer and that's what I need.

Thanks, let me see if I can find something I want (It turns out that NMWA ones might run out of my size, still checking), otherwise I will check if Omega can do rabbit fur.

First, check to make sure that anything rabbit fur can be imported in. If allowed, then use a proxy or use a cross border service like Cross Border Pickups or Shippsy.

Unsure if it'll make a difference - NMWA is also a sponsored vendor on this forum, so they might be more willing to accommodate a forum member. Might be beneficial to PM here instead of sending an email
(but yes, confirm that rabbit fur can come in)

So what is the latest re. the great reopening of the Toronto downtown financial district--Southern Ontario's classic menswear mecca?

Anyone have their return to work postponed indefinitely as of today? Welcome, Omicron!

Has this happened with Big 5? I haven't heard anything from my manager yet.

I am curious also about the Big 5.
Being a faithful SFer. Copped this Isaia cashmere coat on fleabay.
And why, pray, are you not attending the Isaia cocktail event, that overcoat elegantly draped over your shoulders?

I would go just to see the look on the store staff's faces---he tried on in our store, bought online....

Just got it tonight. Sleeves need to be lengthened, sewn sleeve buttons and waist have to be taken in.

Last thing I want is to drive to downtown tonight with all the BF madness.

The store didn't have this exact coat but I got this for 1/3 the price... which is pretty hard to ignore.
