SYDNEY’S: CELEBRATING 10 YEARS.

BANNER32-final

Sydney’s – Celebrating 10 years. 

April marks our tenth year in business.  A decade in establishing ourselves as a premier independent designer menswear boutique.

During this time, we’ve somehow survived broken bones, a fire, flooding, the many recessions, the continual threat of starvation, the hardships of trying to keep garment production in Canada, and having to re-locate the shop due to a natural disaster.

And here we are, celebrating 10 years on Queen West and we couldn’t have done it without you.

In appreciation of 10 years of continued support, we’re celebrating our anniversary month with 20% off all regular priced merchandise until the end of April.

Dries Van Noten’s spring 2015 collection delivers a tailored and graphic collection inspired by Rudolf Nureyev.  A Belgian designer, who is described by the New York Times as “one of fashion’s most cerebral designers,” comes from a family of garment makers and traders.  His father owned a menswear shop and his grandfather was a tailor.

We love Dries Van Noten for his use of use of prints, colours, original fabrics and layering.

This season’s collection, some of our favourite pieces include a reversible graphic dot bomber jacket, a show stopping Japanese water print suit, and embroidered detailing on trousers and jackets.

Available in-store only.
