May I suggest an edit of the sydneys to reflect the collections that are still/most heavily carried?

Viridi Anne, Rick Owens, DRKSHDW, MA+, Augusta, Dries Van Noten.

Chatav and Damir are both cut, those brands listed above are the largest buys for sufu brands.

I always hear a recommendation for Holts, but I have called bloor and yorkdale and neither have Dior raw jeans (looking for the black in either 19cm or 21cm -- MII or MIJ) are there any other locations in Toronto that anyone knows to try?

I also heard a recommendation for Noir on bloor but the number is out of service.

[And sorry I'm sure there's a thread here about Toronto that I'd rather bump but search isn't working for me]

noir shut down last year around the same time that the holts on bloor stopped carrying dior homme. maybe someone in the toronto meetup thread in superofficial can help you out. i would like to know as well.

Also Serpentine does not have Rick Owens, only DRKSHDW, please update.

Hope I started this thread correctly. Anyhow, does anyone know a reputable tailor who can masterfully deconstruct and alter a jacket? I read all the previous threads but the information is quite old.

Hello,

I just moved to Toronto a week ago and I obviously do not well the city so far.

Do you guys have any tip regarding the city: area, stores (besides J+O & Nomad), bars, clubs, restaurants, etc?

Thanks!

Can anyone recommend some 'hip' consignment stores in Toronto that might carry stuff like of Dries Van Noten and Ann D? or anything, really.

the only acceptable place in toronto for bincho-tan yakitori (to my knowledge) is Izakaya Ju in richmond hill (Steeles & Victoria Park).

they have yakitori-don lunch special as well as yakitori chicken burger (along with a lot of other japanese izakaya options)

Hey guys,

I'm going to be in downtown TO for a few days later this week to do some shopping. I'm mainly looking for W+H, Acne, CPs, Nudie jeans, any ideas who would have decent stock and maybe some good boxing week sales? I'll have a vehicle so I can get around if there's a store worth the drive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
