Philip Sparks to close up shop on Ossington

Toronto designer Philiip Sparks' consolidation efforts continue. A few months after discontinuing his women's line in favour of focusing on menswear and custom suits, Sparks is set to shut down his storefront on Foxley, just off of Ossington, this coming Saturday, Toronto Life reports.

But lovers of Sparks' gently-retro, tweedy tailoring shouldn't despair - he'll still be selling the line out of his studio in the Junction, where all of his tailoring and stitching currently takes place. It's a smart move from a cost-savings perspective, and undeniably a boon to his suiting services - why not do it all under the same roof? But with the studio located amid warehouses in a rather remote stretch of the neighbourhood, walk-up traffic might go pretty much out the window (making Sparks' pieces even more of a prize for those in the know).

In the meantime, it looks like everything at the Ossington shop, including tailored menswear separates, accessories, and leather goods, will be on sale for up to 80% off this week. Check out some of the available pieces here.
