Suitsupply Commences Montreal Flagship Construction

Popular Dutch men's suit retailer Suitsupply has begun building its Montreal flagship, which is expected to open this summer. The three-level 6,515 square foot store will be located at 2148-2150 Rue de la Montagne, and will feature the brand's suits, casual wear, evening wear, private shopping and made-to-measure. 

Suitsupply will join some prominent nearby menswear retailers. Immediately north is Holt Renfrew, which will close in 2017 to merge with Ogilvy two blocks to the south. The merged Ogilvy/Holt's will measure 220,000 square feet, housing a substantial menswear section, according to sources at the company. Harry Rosen's 22,000 square foot Les Cours Mount-Royal flagship is in the process of being overhauled and expanded (we'll be writing about this soon), measuring about 33,000 square feet when completed. One of Canada's most prestigious menswear stores, L'Uomo, is located across Peel Street from Harry Rosen. 

Suitsupply's first Canadian store opened in February of 2014. The 4,800 square foot, two-level store is located on Hazelton Avenue in Toronto's upscale Yorkville area.
