The brand-new West Queen West outpost of this popular Richmond Street men’s store is 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.

Despite a messy kerfuffle over their name, this Rosedale boutique seems to be doing well so far. Their taste is impeccable, anyway, stocking Mara Hoffman bikinis, Poe handbags, A Peace Treaty camelbone necklaces, Finn jewelry, and Myne minidresses. Pick up pieces from local favourite Chlow Comme Paris here, too!

This British import has already done well across the pond - the jovial Spencer hopes to make his natty country clothes as successful here as they are in his native land. Shouldn’t be hard with ribbed gray trousers ($290), navy cardigans with brown suede elbow patches ($500), or plaid wool vests ($380), right?

After shuttering her Parkdale vintage store, Franny, Kerry Butt moved a few doors down and opened another store named in honour of her grandmother. This time, though, she went with her in-house label of silky reversible tencel seperates, The Future of Frances, and an intriguing hodgepodge of menswear (Naked & Famous dress-shirts), denim (Levis, Cheap Mondays), and lovely home stuff (Tokyo Milk candles, handmade pillows).

“Wow, this is a lot bigger than I expected” is commonly heard from shoppers entering the warren-like serene white sanctum that is the new Pink Tartan flagship store in Yorkville. The clothes here are often less conservative than the ones bought by chain stores, so you get more fun pieces like a skin-tight navy pencil-skirt in heavy-duty Lycra ($175), a rough-hewn fuschia rosette minidress ($395), and a khaki trench with black piping ($595). Check out the other brands, too, like furry Izma, Elizabeth & James shoes, Seaton sweaters, Skin lingerie, and Paul Sinclaire stuff.
