Best Place to Buy a Suit in Toronto
The best places to buy a suit in Toronto are an indispensable resource for any man. After all, there are countless situations that call for something smarter than slacks and a t-shirt - be it an ordinary business day, a corporate meeting, date night at a ritzy restaurant, prom, your wedding...the list goes on and on. Needless to say, the search for the perfect suit can't be taken lightly; it has to look and feel good in order to communicate confidence or plain old sex appeal - Ryan Gosling style.
Some might even argue that a freshly pressed shirt, power tie, and tailored jacket are the key to greatness. Whichever way you look at it, you'll probably need one somewhere down the road.
A note: for this list we included stores that focus on off-the-rack suits. You can get a bespoke or made to measure suit at some of the spots below, but for those interested in this more refined (and expensive) suit buying experience you'd be best to check out our list of the Best Bespoke Tailors in Toronto. The list also excludes global chain stores like Zara, Massimo Dutti and Brooks Brothers as well as general department stores like The Bay so those might be worth a look if nothing below fits quite right.
