im a student but not full time and like someone said, student dental plans are the ghey and dont cover anythign that can be consideres cosmetic. i guess not having swollen cheeks isnt a practical health concern. meh.

and westside, i cant rep you again but i hope youll take comfort in knowing the rugged man once puked on a good friend of mine while shoulder riding an underage girl and giving me a pound. thats the closest thing to a religious experience ive ever had.

Can anyone recommend a good (read: great) tailor in Toronto?

I want to get the arms of a Wings & Horns jacket shortened by a few inches. There are a few details around the sleeve cuff, so its a bit more complicated than simply shortening it.

I called Holts, they were unsure of whether or not they would do it because, even though they carry the line now, I didnt buy it there.

i just took the jacket to Holts and told the tailor that I bought it there.

They would have shortened the sleeves for free too, but I wanted the sleeves shortened from the top, so they charged $90.

everywhere. check klaxon&howl, delphic, sydney's, nomad etc.

too bad you missed the delphic sale on julian red selvage. they were down to like 200.

that newish place, nextdoor at queen and spadina carries some nice stuff too. but their brother store due west carries really wack shit. don't even bother with that place.

damn last time i was at klaxon&howl, they had some vintage vivienne westwood boots that i'm still having wet dreams about...

Hey west!

I suggest you do come down to Toronto. Its got TONS of tourist attractions such as, the CN Tower, Air Canada Centre...This weekend theres the Caribana festival, its probably one of canadas Biggest tourist attractions..Tons and TONS of hot women from all over the world come and dance to Calypso, Reggae, dancehall...the list goes on..

If you want a place to relax go to lakeshore or the waterfront(the new one)...Great place to roller blade, chill out with the family and enjoy some music from our fellow torontonians..

Ive been to the states many times, but I always get homesick because Toronto has so much..We're considered Hollywood North because we've got shit loads of actors that come down to shoot films.. David Beckham is supposed to come soon also for the Toronto Fc game

Also, if you're into the nightlife, there are plenty of hot spots in the GTA such as Inside nightclub, Afterlife, Seven nightclub, Guvernment, Level, the docks..etc etc

Shit id be glad to be ur tour guide or something lol

Don't let this post discourage you. Toronto actually does have some good things here.

ahk1979 - what happened with your store?

TNT is decent enough too, though some of their prices are ridiculously jacked. Due West has Nudies, but they're way, way, way overpriced.

I checked Nomad, who have some Imperial and APC, and TNT has a fair bit of APC, Cheap Monday, Julian Red and whatnot. But yeah, pricey; all their Ksubi denim was around $350. Not raw but still worth mentioning.

Over The Rainbow sometimes has decent stuff, but mostly it's all Diesel and shit like that.

Due West is good for that Canada Goose, I can't lie.

If you're in Yorkville, TNT and Uncle Otis are probably worth a stop-over. Otis just got in some Reigning Champ!!!, Rittenhouse, iDiom..

why is klaxon&howl closing? i thought it was the brother store of delphic and they were both doing pretty well?

oh ya totally forgot holts has apc and earnest and other such gateway-denimsnob denim.

also delux boutique has some nice swedish stuff. but it's more female oriented stock.

and carte blanche for overpriced but fun nu-ravey steez.

it's "klaxon howl", not "klaxon and howl"...most of the posts in this thread are by a bunch of suburbanites who have no idea what the city's all about.

is deluxe boutique the one beside sydneys or is it the one down the street with the so so def vinyl toys? if its that one, its pretty aweful for menwear.

crom, are you assuming were all suburbanites because i didnt know the name of klaxon? if so that pretty off base. why not school people on whats really going on instead of being a dummy?

oops. ya i didnt really learn the names of those places until i'd been properly going there for years. on queen st. its easy to just walking into stores without ever looking up. thats just a function of pedestrian shopping downtown, not a measure of whether people know 'what the city's all about'.

nesk you might be thinking of that sample store or kamikaze? deluxe carries vintage and swedish stuff. no toys.

Probably because noone buys enough overpriced military surplus/vintage to help them pay the rent?

If Klaxon Howl is closing, it's because they haven't moved a single piece of stock in a year, and their stuff is overpriced. ie. you can buy the same military boots they have on ebay for $30 bucks vs. $165+ They are the only place in the city who have Canes to my knowledge, so now might be a good time to pick some up. Nomad also carries denim by Wings & Horns, Corpus, and Nom De Guerre. That place beside Due West carries Acne. Noir has overpriced Dior. Sydney will cut and sew to fit from a variety of denims and the prices aren't as high as you'd think. The last time I spoke to him, he was finishing up a couple styles to have made and sell in store for around 200 I think.. The customs will cost around 300-400 from what I remember. FYI, he also does chainstich. Deluxe doesn't carry much denim, they do have a lot of 'junk de luxe' oddly enough...

where's the best place in town for nudies?

I don't know, really. TNT is decent pricewise for Nudies, but I'm not really sure.
