Menswear popularity is at an all time high with sales set to rise another 40 billion in the next 5 years. While trends like athleisure and streetwear have had a major impact on the way men dress, one staple that isn’t going anywhere is the suit. Since the 19th century, the suit has been the building block in man’s wardrobe, conveying elegance and class. The price of a suit can range dramatically ($100-$10,000 or even more). I’ve narrowed down the best places to find a suit for under $1000 in Toronto which, is about what you can expect to pay for a good quality suit that you’ll have for years to come. From custom to the best off-the-rack, here are the best places to go when looking for a suit.
If you’re looking for great value, look no further. Winners has a variety of styles from designers like Hugo Boss and Dolce & Gabbana starting at $499.99. If you’re looking to explore your options and aren’t set on a particular colour or style, Winners is a great way to add a low-key suit steal to your wardrobe.
Made-to-Measure doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Indochino offers a wide range of styles and fabrics (wool/silk, wool, cotton) that start at $499.99. Their three-step process allows you to choose your style, customize your suit and get measured online in a user-friendly process. Delivery in less then 4 weeks makes this a great option if efficiency is at the tope of your list. Learn more about the custom suit making process at Indochino here.
Another Canadian mainstay, Club Monaco does a great job of hitting that sweet spot of quality/style for your buck. Selling as separates, Club Monaco has jackets starting at $398 and trousers at $198. The spring range includes styles such as a DB Linen Blazer and collaboration with shoemaker Allen Edmonds. For a modern take on menswear, look no further.
This brand is for the modern man. Tiger of Sweden is known for their tailored off-the-rack suits. Prices start at $799 for a complete suit, $549 for a suit jacket and $249 for pants. If you’re willing to hold out, you can find full suits or separates for much lower at one of their Toronto sample sales. They happen about 4 times a year and are totally worth the wait!
Similar to Winners, Tom’s Place does a great job of offering a wide assortment. You’ll find everything from $100 suits to Armani here, which makes it a great place to explore if you’re new to the menswear world. It’ll require some digging but this is a great place to find hidden gems that’ll be in your wardrobe for years to come. Aside from their flagship in Kensington Market, they have an outlet in Mississauga where they often host BOGO deals on suit, jacket and dress shirts.
Hailing from Amsterdam, Suit Supply has quickly made quite a name for themselves by keeping classic menswear compelling. They offer an array of trendy suits as well as accessories and sportswear that doesn’t compromise on quality. Fabrics range from Mohair Silk to cotton/linen, and suits start at $399.99. Although it’s one of the pricier options on this list, Suit Supply is a great option for the man that wants to maintain his youthful spirit.
While Moores probably isn’t the first place you think of when you think high-fashion suits, a recently launched made-to-measure program might change the way you think. Dapper gentlemen can now get a custom Joseph Abboud suit starting at $895, where they’ll have the option to choose the design, details and fabric, of which there are over 150 Italian blends. Suits are ready in just 4 weeks and shoppers even have the option to monogram their pieces.
