The Best Menswear Stores in Toronto
The best menswear stores in Toronto are scattered all over the city - whether you're in Yorkville or the Junction, you'll find a supplier of tip-top men's fashion near you. However, the hunt for a specific look requires a little more effort as every shop is curated (to perfection, no less) for a distinctive lifestyle. There may not be a spot on this list for the bargain hunters, but there's one for the dapper chap in Jil Sander suits and, another for someone a little rougher around the edges - whatever your style, you'll leave these stores better-dressed.
Here are the best menswear stores in Toronto.
A Yorkville staple, Uncle Otis calls itself the "purveyor of fine style" - and, after 23 years of business, we couldn't agree more. They offer everything from a trusty Filson briefcase to a trend-centric pair of printed chinos. Plus, they're known for a whole whack of exclusive designer collaborations; Canada Goose and Oliver Spencer are some of the names on their roster. More »
Nomad supplies their many loyal customers with a generous helping of sleek downtown cool. You can find the latest and greatest from the likes of Comme Des Garcons, Common Projects within their exposed brick walls, as well as lifestyle goods like fancy cologne and soy candles. More »
Sydney's is one of those spacious boutiques with a smattering of product folded meticulously on minimal furnishings and hung on evenly spaced hangers. It almost seems too big for its ever-sophisticated stock, but each piece is carefully selected with the highest standards of quality - not quantity. United Stock Dry Goods and Marni can be found here along with several more coveted brands. More »
Although Lost + Found is half coffee, half clothing shop, the menswear is far from second string. Dedicated to a rugged Americana aesthetic, the stock boasts a whole whack of classics like '70s Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars and Levi's 511s as well as print-clad shirts by Gitman Brothers Vintage and ties by The Hill-side. The best part? They can all be perused with a fresh latté in hand. More »
With two locations and a very sophisticated web presence under their belt, Gotstyle is easily the most accessible boutique for dapper chaps and average Joes alike. They've got a good selection of quality basics like Pima cotton tees and sweat-wicking underwear, but the main attraction's the funky shirts, brightly hued blazers and patterned pants by labels like Gsus Industries and Bustle.

Gerhard Supply in the Junction may be quite a ways away from the other names on the list, but it's definitely a destination store. The boutique is a mecca for Toronto-based menswear brands like Outclass and Philip Sparks, making it a destination for those who like to support local and a pleasant surprise for those who don't (yet).

North Standard Trading Post pays homage to Canadian spirit - not only is its interior brimming with deer antlers and maps of the country, the stock is made for the quintessential outdoorsy guy. Muttonhead five panel hats, K-Way windbreakers and Workers New York tote bags are just some of the rugged gear you can find here. Plus, they've got a house brand of basics like socks and hoodies perfect for a Canadian winter. More »
Jonathan + Olivia is an Ossington favourite for all the gear you'd otherwise only see on Kanye West. Nothing's too off the wall for this boutique - they've got an abundance of Hood By Air's obnoxiously printed shirts and Rick Owens DRKSHDW's drop crotch shorts. Oh, you want shiny, leather-look sweatpants? They've got those too. More »
Woodlawn focuses on function over fashion, and that's a concept they see through in all aspects of the business. The space is both a store and a studio, decorated only with chipboard clothing racks and shelving units. The shop teems with cozy, practical clothing like sweats by Reigning Champ and deerskin gloves by Pratt & Hart while the on-site studio takes care of all your sewing and alteration needs. More »
TNT is a big, shiny hub for fashion aficionados of all kinds. 4,000 square feet of the massive space is dedicated to menswear alone. Whether you're looking for a new pair of sneakers or a perfectly tailored blazer, this boutique's got Junya Watanabe, Alexander Wang, and Tiger of Sweden galore, and lots of space to prance around in their clothes.

Meant to give off the same vibe as their New York location, Community 54 in Parkdale is a go-to for streetwear. The shop harbours enough house brand snapbacks and parody T-shirts to clothe a small army. A hoodie emblazed with "Local Hooligans" epitomizes their customer base. More »
