Thanks for the Holt's price info! We haven't gone anywhere yet, but will be going at the start of April.I've heard good things about green shag, but they are pricey compared to the custom stuff i've had made or others i know have had made. have not heard of CODE, though.
Holt's does have a good selection of more slimmer suits, but you will pay through the nose for them.
go to caruso's. less money, better cuts, and they carry more updated lines, not just big names.for a $1000 bucks you should have no issue getting a very well tailored suit. If you feel like driving out to Brampton. David Andrews' on main street does a great suit for under $1000. However now that i'm in the East end of Toronto, i would check out Korry's on Danforth. I've never had a bad suit from them.
a month or two is the turnaround time I found. I'm sure it could be expedited and delivered in time. I'll PM you the details. Don't bother with Maxwells.Part of the issue is that the wedding is in late Jan 2013, so Maxwell's is out. What exactly is Maxwell's anyway? A traveling tailor? From reading the thread I'm guessing you get the finished product in the mail?
Deep: is it possible to have a suit made from your tailor in such a short timeframe?
And thanks for the replies!
Alexander's on the Danforth tailored a suit for a buddy (open up the jacket and took it in and hemmed the pants) for cheap. $45 bucks if I remember.Posted this in wrong thread maybe!
I'll try here: Hey so my dad gave me a pretty slick suit, just a tad too big - where is a good place to get a suit altered to my man-body's particular specifications?
Does this guy do custom shirts? Can you send me his details? I need a new shirt and I refuse to get off the rack after having custom shirts made and Maxwell's takes too long.a month or two is the turnaround time I found.

Yes, this is true - true bespoke e.g. Saville Row is a very limited concept and much pricier, and most of the "custom" operations have the same basic business model - measure in one place and outsource production to a tailor / factory elsewhere. But it's not the same as off the rack and adjusted.Just want to chip in my two cents..
Seen a lot of talk in this thread about bespoke/custom/tailored suits etc..just wanna mentioned there is a different between them..
Bespoke.."to be spoken for" is NOT the same as "custom"...a "true bespoke" suit is a very long and labour intensive process which many, many, many measurements and fittings..a "one -of-a-kind" pattern is made for YOU and hand cut and sewn..there are only a handful of places in the world where these are made..ie London's Saville Row, Italy, etc..they are REALLY expensive and I'm not sure if anyone in Toronto actually does it
A "Made To Measure" suit is either a OTR suit which is tailored to your measurements or a existing suit pattern that is tailored to your measurements..this is what the majority of "custom" suits mentioned ie Maxwells in this thread really are..they are still very good quality and value and I will be looking to get one done by some tailor for my next suit.
