Isaia opened its very first Canadian storefront on the corner of Bellair Street and Yorkville Avenue. The iconic heritage building (and former Sheriff’s Residence) provides the perfect setting with its mix of both modern and historical architecture. Isaia is rooted in its Italian heritage, with its first boutique opening in Naples in 1920. After making its mark as a fabric store, Isaia grew to become a renowned tailoring company, eventually designing garments for distribution around the world. The design and technology behind each Isaia garment is still firmly rooted in Neopolitan tradition. Guests at the Bloor-Yorkville location can browse suiting, apparel, accessories, loungewear, and of course, made-to-measure pieces.

From start to finish, John Ferrigamo works with his clients to create custom suits and shirts, helping to guide clients based on their suiting needs. Each aspect of the suit is truly bespoke for each client, including all design details and fabrics. Depending on the occasion, time of year, and personal style, John works one-on-one to help design a suit that will never be duplicated. Each garment is predominantly hand made by the most experienced cutters and tailors who place an emphasis on comfort and durability.

Stone Island’s Yorkville Avenue boutique is the third North American location and the only in Canada. With a distinct, youthful “streetwear” aesthetic, Stone Island has made a name for itself with high-tech fabrics, including one used in a jacket that changes colours based on temperature.
The multi-level Yorkville Avenue location features the full range of Stone Island apparel, plus a floor dedicated to their Shadow Project – an experimental line that allows their designers to push the boundaries in fabrics, colours, and patterns.
After finding a superfan in the one and only Drake, it seems only fitting that Stone Island opened it’s first first flagship in Toronto!
