Depending when you need it and what not

http://www.maxwellsclothiers.com/

Go in the "Visits" tab, then Canada, then Montreal.

These guys come over in various hotels in the world. They will take all your measurements. You choose your material, your cut, how many pockets/buttons you want, handcuffs and collars on shirts, etc. Everything is designed FOR YOU, on your measurements, and you choose everything.

They then send all your choices in Hong Kong, and it his made according to your specifications. You get it shipped back right at home about 6 weeks later.

I do this every time for shirts, it comes up to about 200$ for custom designed, high quality shirts that fit me perfectly, shipping and border transit included.

I am 100% you will not find a better deal for the same quality and custom tailored. The only annoyance is the delay from measurement to reception at home.

Simons in downtown. 2nd floor. Prices are decent.

Andy 08-27-2012 12:52 PM

Harry Rosen. Hope you got big bucks.

bhuya71 08-27-2012 12:54 PM

http://www.suitupp.com/ - never used it but apparently its designer suits bought in large amounts thereby they only offer one suit at very competitive prices ranging from different sizes etc for that ONE suit!

Rockomax 08-27-2012 12:55 PM

I like Ernest stores...

Boris Le Tigre 08-27-2012 01:00 PM

I recommend renting unless you have the kind of occupation where you need a suit...

suits change style and it's hard to get one that won't look out-dated... I always rent nice ones whenever I need...

I have bought one... it still fits but is nearly 20 year old and looks like a green couch.

just putting that out there.

For some reason I like the one I purchased at the Bay the most (Galerie D'anjou). Great price and with the Bay card you even get an additional discount.

Did you really mean $200 for a shirt or for a suit?

Good price, awful quality.

Harry: what's your budget? I think that's the most important question here...

I've always had good quality at decent price at Ernest and they did a great job on the fitting. Also, I believe they have their summer sale on at the moment.

Depends on the quality you buy. If you buy cheap, it'll probably look bad the day you buy it, and then look awful a few years later. If you buy mid-range, it'll look fine for awhile. If you buy quality, and go for something classic as opposed to a trend, it'll always be good.

RaMMuT 08-27-2012 01:35 PM

It really depends on your budget. If you want something more stylish I recommend you check out stores like Zara, Simons.

If you don't wanna pay too much, check out Sears I know they have a little bit of everything in there for good prices!

Good luck

500-600$ is what I am looking for.

Thinking back to the people that have recommended, that doesn't surprise me.

I feel pitty for people that need to wear a suit 5 days a week.

coolasprICE 08-27-2012 01:44 PM

why not just get your sizing and order online from a reputable retailer / brand name.. just make sure they have a return policy.

Buy a 300$ ticket to go to the U.S go to Marshalls find marked down suits there :sarcasm:.
Maybe you will find something at Winners sometimes they have high end couture for
dirt cheap. I remember I found a Armani suit with 1 minor defect (fixed for 23$) marked
down from 1200 to 429.99.

coolasprICE 08-27-2012 01:46 PM

does renting a suit mean going to the Bay, wearing it and then returning it for a full refund??????:)

HH 08-27-2012 01:46 PM

This looks good but with a price that low, I wonder if it's worth it.
