Nomad (Queen St.)

Posted by Staff / Posted on January 9, 2011

Nomad TorontoNomad, the popular Richmond Street men's store, has recently opened this larger West Queen West outpost. It's filled with neo-trad offerings like sturdy Filson totes ($135--$455), emerald-green Canada Goose wool bombers ($1250), A.P.C. jeans in steel-grey ($210), and tons of items from awesome Vancouver line Wings + Horns.

Nomad is amazing. Some great pieces sold by people who know their stuff. Top place.

Nice staff? Mmm, sure if you like too cool for school service. I've been in the Richmond location ever since they first opened and they seemed really nice at first but something happened down the road. The sales staff just don't like to help you if you're not down with the local crew or if you don't look like an "Urban Woodsman." They do know what's hip bit who doesn't these days especially with all the fashion blogs out there. I hope they just slap their employees on the head a few times and try to be more social and friendly to new and regular customers than just giving the up and down bitch look. This city doesn't need any more stuck up sales rep. Goodfoot store R.I.P.

yo guy, I work at nomad, why you front'n on me brah? I got the hypest gear in t-dizz. yaz better reco. i looks like jesse pinkman from breaking baddd, dun. kidding, kidding. queen st. location is better, but those chumps at the richmond location need to seriously brush up on their customer service skills (read: get some). the owner once told me that if i had to ask the price i shouldn't shop there. oh, then k'naan walked in and the owner practically wipped out his dangler and milked it in front of us. 'these be the types of cats that shop here, son.' word. problem is they actually carry some nice stuff/brands. note to other prospective shop owners: carry some nice brands and treat people kindly/with respect and we'll all start shopping there instead. peas.

I've always received top notch customer service from Nomad. I've shopped there for about four years and really never had any difficulties from their staff (though I've heard things about one specific individual [no, not Zeb]).

Prices are decent, especially for the quality of goods there. Unfortunately, now with the Queen St. store their goods will be split between stores and I'm not really game for traveling from store to store (but in the end I will). Plus, they've got an online store now so if you're worried about customer service you can stay safe behind your screen.

Jake you probably took some of that shitty attitude in there with you. Zeb (the owner) is the man I've bought maybe 3 things there over four years and he's always been quick to say hi and whats up and ask how i've been, and I can assure you I don't have the hypest gear and im not k'naan ..

Seriously whats wrong with people here these shops are small boutiques it's not the gap or h&m wtf are you expecting? I rather a more chill staff that's not all up in my grill every 2 seconds.

Five or six years ago you couldn't even get this type of men's wear in Toronto, let alone Canada. Good on everyone that's making it happen!

Agree with J. Ive been shopping here for the last two years or so, and anytime ive asked for help with anything the staff has been more than helpful. They dont necessarily give you a big hello when you walk in and aren't on you the minute you start browsing the store, which i prefer but to each his own.

Been shopping there for the last 4 years and they have not disappoint me with their customer service. They're a pretty chill bunch but when you ask for something they're more than willing to help you out. I don't know how you guys got bad service there.

Most of the staff are great It's just that one tall asian dude that moonlights as a Model (see: OVO x Canada Goose photo shoot/many product shots at - that guy is a total DBAG. Cut eye the moment you walk in the door, unless you are sporting a kit that costs more than a car. The guy has straight up ignored me when I've asked questions, and he is a total buzzkill whenever I run into him. Other than him, though, the rest of the shop staff are usually really helpful.

I guess to each their own. The guy you were referring to is named Paolo. Never had a bad experience with him. Always took him for a good dude. He's a legitimate model (Givenchy)

I don't doubt your experience though. The problem here is consistency.
Jon / February 16, 2011 at 03:44 pm
chuckling while reading LilB. That guy could definitely brush up on his customer service. A smile and hello when you make eye contact would be a good start.

Who's that fat bald guy who hangs out there all day? He's so creepy and sad looking

How do men feel about anti aging products for men? If it were to be subtle changes in the way you look where you look better but people can’t put their finger on how, would you consider it? Is looking good important to you? Is 500-1000 k too much every 6 months on over all maintenance? Is anonymity important to you? Would you prefer someone to come to you?

The staff at Nomad has always been great to me even though I don't shop there that often. Zeb is a real head and stand up guy since I met him while he worked at Vice. Paolo is mad cool too. Most of the other staff is also very helpful especially Nick. A store is there for shopping and should have great selection good service is an added bonus which Nomad fulfills. The fact that they don't get in your grill is good service for me and much appreciated. If you want to feel like a rockstar and be pressured to make impulsive buys then go to Holt Renfrew. Nomad has done a lot for this city's slim offerings, so support and stop whining.

Jay Isap is one of the best retail sales representatives ive ever had the chance to meet. The guy is a wiz and will probably go pretty far in retail. Only the best from Nomad when I go but i definitely go hoping to get help from him.
