Making its home on Ossington just north of Queen Street West this year, Philip Sparks Tailored Goods, Inc. offers both men and women beautifully crafted quality clothing and accessories at his storefront at 162 Ossington Avenue at Foxley.
Designer Philip Sparks sources the inspiration for his full collection of menswear, womenswear, bags, shoes and accessories from found photographs Canada's great outdoors, fabrics from yester-year and period tailor's notions. What is immediately apparent is his love for detail and pattern, and his sensitivity in bringing his interest of all things vintage into focus with a collection that at once references heritage tailoring and technique while ensuring an exemplary fit and unique contemporary style which will have you looking fabulous every day.
Definitely making urbaneer's list of favourites are Philip's signature lightweight plaid scarves, and an exceptional array of smart bow-ties in all manner of stripes and plaids, which come complete with instructions on how to tie them! All clothing and accessories are sourced and manufactured here in Canada by specialized manufacturers, leatherworkers and knitters. Also notable are the leather goods, in a variety of handsome finishes, all designed right here in Toronto.
If you're finding yourself in the mood to add sparkle and spark to your holiday wardrobe this season, this is an urbaneer recommendation!
