Modern Bespoke

remember your first car

that old, beat-up pickup, that two-door hatchback driven well over 200,000kms? Sometimes, the engine would whir a bit too loud, or the clutch would slip, or maybe the right-side passenger door was rather rusty. But, it was your very own car, and it did get you from point A to point B as best as it could. Thankfully, things are now different: you’re in a new phase of your life: a successful man, getting around in a smart, sleek, well-running luxury vehicle – complete with leather seats, top-notch sound system, goes from 0-to-60kms/h in 3.5 seconds.

and, it is customized, after a session of discussing, researching, and consulting to fit your lifestyle:

You chose everything from its colours top to bottom, inside and out, as well as every single special touch. Much like your selection in cars has matured, so has your personal style. Investing in a Garrison Bespoke suit speaks to how far you’ve come since you purchased your first off-the-rack suit, many years ago. The experience is a world a difference.

The bespoke-trade is an art, an English tradition Garrison is proud to carry on

It is a partnership between a client and a tailor that involves building a relationship before the most important tailoring tool, a measuring tape, is brought out. First, there’s trust to establish, a matter of getting to know each other. When you come into our shop, we’ll pour you a drink, chat, get to know how you live your life, and have a one-on-one consultation session – such things are best done in-person, of course –
so that we can begin to understand what will go into the best-fitting suit for you, your body-type, skin-tone, personality, lifestyle – a “bespoken” garment for you and you alone.

by using traditional tailoring techniques adopted from around the world

Our goal is to create for you a durable, modern suit. It is important to keep in mind that creating and constructing a bespoke suit requires more time and patience than a usual suit-selection process: everything is done from the ground-up, from scratch, and there are many options and many choices to make. Our expert stylists are here to assist and educate you through the making of your suit. The wait is worth it. (And there’s never any reason to feel overwhelmed, and you’re encouraged to have fun.)

after selecting the perfect materials and cuts for your physique

We get into the numbers-game, taking measurements of your body – shoulders, chest, arms, legs, inseams, and more – in order to hand-cut the fabric for your suit. Then, comes the different techniques, such as cutting/shaping the inner-canvas, pinning everything together, sewing, hand-sewing, fittings, re-sewing, etc. You will not be able to step in Garrison and find yourself with a suit after a few minutes, but in time, you will end up with your perfect suit. This is why patience is a virtue.

Don’t forget: the suit is handmade here, in Toronto;
it can take up to six-months to complete, if it is being
made for an important occasion, plan ahead.

A Garrison Bespoke suit may cost more than what a suit costs at a regular store or tailor, but then again, we’re not a regular store or tailor. Nothing compares to the experience of creating a quality garment that is tailored specifically for you, your body, and your life. All this time and money is invested in a suit that will last you a lifetime. Not only will the craftsmanship of the garment stand the test of time, but extra material in the suit’s lining allows for adjustments if your body changes with time. You will enjoy your Garrison bespoke suit for years to come.

Have More Questions?

here are some frequently asked questions to help you better
understand what makes ‘modern bespoke’.

1. Why bespoke?

With bespoke, you never have to worry about fitting a certain size or model. No part of the bespoke suit is ever pre-made or pre-determined. After taking all of your individual measurements, the suit is entirely made to your specifications, and over a number of fittings, we’ll then tailor the suit to your every need and desire.

Every man has a unique skin tone. Buying bespoke means having the opportunity to select the fabric that best compliments your skin tone. Garrison offers its clients a wide range of materials from the world’s top cloth makers, and our stylists are ready to help you find the right one for any occasion.

No detail is ever too small when creating a bespoke garment. Whether it’s a secret pocket, a fun lining, or a unique monogram, Garrison is up for the challenge of creating a suit that’s one-of-a-kind for every client. After taking into consideration who our client is, the type of people he meets and the places he goes, we set out to make him the best fitting garment suited to his lifestyle. Our goal is to make him something that feels like home.

2. What type of man should buy bespoke?

A man who doesn’t fit the mold of mass-produced garments and appreciates the finer things in life. Creating one of our bespoke suits is a fun and empowering experience for the man who works to stand out and takes pride in selecting the right colours and proportions perfectly tailored to his body.

3. When should you choose bespoke?

Men who wear suits on a daily basis should consider investing in bespoke suits in order to get the best quality garments for their dollar. Sure, bespoke might cost more than the regular off-the-rack options, but the look, feeling, and life expectancy of bespoke garments are well worth the extra money.

Buying bespoke is also a great option for special occasions, such as weddings or galas. If your goal is to standout in a sea of suits, bespoke is the only way to go. People notice when a suit is perfectly tailored to a man’s body and when he goes the extra mile to look his best. A bespoke suit can help you make a statement at any event.

4. When should you not choose bespoke?

If this is your first time investing in a quality suit or are pressed for time, taking the bespoke route may not be the best option for you. Remember, a bespoke suit can take up to six months to create, so opting for a Garrison Essentials made-to-measure suit could be the better choice for a man on the go.

5. What is unique about Garrison Bespoke compared to other bespoke tailors?

Garrison’s goal is to make every client look and feel his best. The only way we can do that is by getting to know every man that walks into our shop. Before selling you a suit, one of our expert stylists will chat with you about how your suit will be used and where you will be going in it – all over a glass of your favourite whiskey, or a great cup of coffee. After finding out how you live your life, we can create a bespoke garment to compliment your regular routine.

Garrison is also home to the largest luxury fabric collection in Toronto. All of the cloths we offer our clients are made from best mills across Europe.

We’d like to work with you in creating the ultimate garment for your best performance. This is the reason why our clients keep coming back and why we have been named Canada’s number one tailor.
