The Classic

If there’s one name that comes to mind when searching for the perfect dapper look, it’s Henry Singer. Founded in Edmonton in 1938, the Henry Singer Fashion Group has literally been helping generations of dapper professionals get suited up. They’ve got everything you need under one roof – from custom-made suits to casual outerwear & from shoes to swimwear. Remember to ramp up your look with a pair of Marcoliani socks or keep cool with an Eleventy scarf. If you’re stuck on gift ideas, check out the various flavours of Marvis toothpaste. Mmmm, jasmin mint. 10180 101 St (inside Manulife Place)

And that suit jacket has a custom patterned lining picked by you. MDRN Measure has an extensive list of products they can make to fit any body. They aren’t messing around either.

Watch it

Rolex, Cartier and Huer – oh my! Or give the Meccaniche Veneziane a try. Azurys Jewellers has an ample array of timepieces to fit the most discerning tastes. They even have a Vintage Vault if you’re in the mood for something truly unique. Don’t be fooled by the name, their Swiss Service Centre can repair all brands. But if you have a fine Swiss timepiece, take it to the experts for service. 10072 Jasper Ave

Custom-made shoes from S.M. Bespoke


A good look starts with good soles. Why not get them custom made for the perfect look? Sure, S.M. Bespoke offers incredible, made-to-measure suits but it’s their handmade shoes that have us head over heels. Book an appointment to pick the perfect looks and they’ll be handmade in Spain with the finest materials and using traditional craftsmanship. 9880 Jasper Ave

Refresh your kicks

A scuffed shoe can ruin the sharpest look. Refresh your kicks at the Shoe Shine Shack in the historic Mercer Building. This is also a great option for the dapper dresser who loves vintage – find a pair at a thrift shop, then bring them to Shane to polish them up before hitting the streets. Or pick up some colourful laces to give your fave pair more looks. 10359 104 St

Specs appeal

You won’t find too much about Baker Optical online, but don’t let that fool you. Since opening in 1969, their reputation for selling stylin’ specs has spanned the city. They were the first store to hold exclusive rights to fashionable brands like Lindberg and Sospiri. Make a statement with eyewear from Baker Optical. 10405 Jasper Ave


Complete your look with bling from Vandenbergs Jewellers. The family-owned business has been making memories beautiful for forty years. Here. You can find that perfect set of diamond studs or an elegant band to tie your look together.
