Jeans, and denim are a staple in almost everyone’s wardrobe, but shopping for the right option can be arduous. Here’s a list of denim stores we think you must check out if you’re in the jeans buying market. List is not in any particular order.

1. Dutil Denim

Located at 704 Queen West Dutil is heaven for jeans lovers. Originally a Vancouver denim mecca, Dutil has implanted itself on Queen West and is quickly becoming THE place to shop for jeans in Toronto. Manager Kaitlin Churcher describes the store as  a “one stop destination for denim, we wanted to go with the vibe that we are a cool store, but not pretentious in nature. Denim transcends so many socio-economic levels, so we try to make it comfortable for everyone.” Essentially, you get the cool Queen West brands, the cool Queen West atmosphere, but the sales people won’t be too “cool” to help you snag an awesome pair of jeans.

Talk about fabulous brands, they’ve got them all! Naked & Famous, ACNE, Telleson, Levi’s, Rogue Territory and more can all be found lining the beautifully curated store.

2. Over the Rainbow Jeans

Nestled in the heart of Yorkville lies one of Toronto’s true retail gems. Immense product knowledge, focused customer service, and a complete lack of pretentiousness are just some of the reasons why Over The Rainbow has been one of Toronto’s best retail stores for the last 38 years.

In Toronto, it is either Queen West or Bloor/Yorville as the go-to areas for denim shopping. If you pick the latter, it’s almost inconceivable to pass up Yorkville’s oldest denim mecca. According to locals and hard-core shoppers alike, Yorkville and OTR go hand in hand. We personally couldn’t picture anything else in the location where Over the Rainbow now sits.

3. TNT

For the trend setting fashionista, TNT is definitely a stop you need to make if your love denim but your tastes lean more towards high end mainstream brands. From brands like Levi’s to 3.1 Phillip Lim, TNT probably has one of the biggest ranges in denim outside the upscale department stores.

 

4. Nomad

For the stylish man who knows his brands, Nomad is the place for you. Located at 819 Queen Street West, Nomad has not only established it self as a go to destination in Toronto, but has received world-wide acknowledgement for their knowledgable staff and coveted brands. If you’re looking for Wings + Horns, A.P.C, Comme Des Garcons, or Supreme check out Nomad.
