Last week we gave you something from Tiffany & Co. for the ladies, this week we bring you something for the boys. Sterling silver tie and money clips, a simple solution for those guys who are hard to buy for.
A couple of weeks ago we featured David Gill and Julie Norden’s wedding in our blog. The day it was posted, I was told that David had his suit tailored at Theodore 1922. After seeing David in his stylish suit, I knew I had to make a visit to find out more about this store.
Theodore 1922 is located on Bloor Street and is owned by Miranda Black, a fun and energetic woman who’s truly passionate about menswear. I asked Miranda what it is she loves about her business. “The quality of menswear,” she told me without skipping a beat. Miranda showed me some pieces by Montreal label Samuelsohn and, after checking out their curved lapels and an impressive range of silhouettes, I could certainly see what she means by quality.
Miranda walked me through the process of having a suit customized at her store. First, she’ll work with the groom to determine the right silhouette for his body type. Then they’ll pick a fabric and lining (she encourages grooms to have fun with the latter). Next comes the shirt, and Miranda just happens to carry a beautiful line from Sweden called Eton (the colours and patterns, not the mention the actual fit, are extraordinary). And, finally, it’s off to the basement for a fitting.
If you’re looking for a suit for your wedding that’s a bit untraditional and that you’ll be able to wear for years to come, make an appoint with Miranda and let the fittings begin.
P.S. The store will receive some beautiful, navy blue tuxedos in August. (Did you know the navy blue is the traditional colour for a tuxedo?)
