The Best New Fashion Stores in Toronto, 2013
The best new fashion stores in Toronto from 2013 fall under a whole whack of different categories - ones that go above and beyond menswear vs. womenswear. Their stocks range from house brand to consignment, workwear to evening wear, and designer to vintage (to designer vintage). There are boutiques that spotlight fashions straight out of Japan as well as shops that prefer all things made-in-Canada. There's even a spot to grab surprisingly chic maternity garb!
Here are the best new fashion stores in Toronto from 2013.
This Dundas West favourite packed up and moved to Ossington last year. But devoted Lost + Found fans need not sweat it - the coffee shop slash menswear clothing boutique hybrid is just as awesome as before, only bigger. You can still pop in to peruse their rugged workwear by brands like Filson and Makr - with a latte in hand, no less!
VSP may be a spin-off of Vespucci - Calgary's 8,000 square-foot ladies' consignment department store - but it's (almost) nothing like it. Aside from being much smaller, the boutique is curated for the urban mover and shaker, featuring second-hand treasures by mid-range brands and high-end designers alike. When I first dropped in, I fell in love with the shoes , but their ever-changing selection tells that'll change.
Toronto-based menswear is on the come up - and Gerhard Supply knows it. That's why owner Langton Williams opened a mecca of clothing designed exclusively in the city. You'll find brands like 18 Waits, Outclass, and Muttonhead, plus a whole slew of lifestyle goods like apothecary and moustache scissors.
Blue Button Shop gets all of its gear from Japan. But, the boutique's not a hub for the kooky Japanese fashion you're probably picturing - instead, it focuses on "Otona" style - mature and refined. Get a delicately draped sweater by Evam Eva or a pair of Japan Blue jeans and rest assured the quality meets the price.
