Finding a perfectly-fitted suit most likely won’t happen by simply walking into a store. There’s usually a second step involved: a trip to the tailoring shop. We’ve done the sitting and fitting for you and compiled a list of Montreal’s top bespoke tailors. Whether it be fixing up and re-sizing an existing suit or looking to have one custom made especially for you, the following spots will have you looking sharp for your next meeting or event.
Waxman Tuxedo House – 4605 Parc
This Outrement bespoke tailor, tuxedo rental and sales shop has been a family-run and owned establishment since 1927. On top of having highly skilled tailors, Waxman is also down with the latest trends and will be able to point you in the right direction when it comes to a made-to-measure suit. Did we mention they also do custom shirts?
All suits are made with fabrics by Dormeuil, a Franco-British company that has demonstrated unparalleled know-how over the last 150 years with its exclusive lines of fabric.
Tony the Tailor – 2041-A Stanley
This downtown tailor is yet another family-owned establishment that has been passed down from generation to generation since 1949.
