Though business-casual attire has overtaken the three-piece suit, it’s still important to look professional. Put your trust in these sophisticated retailers and service providers if you’ve forgotten something at home or are in need of a wardrobe tune-up.

1 Edgier men looking for a cut, shave or beard trim should book an appointment at Garrison’s Barbershop.

2 The talented team at King West’s John Steinberg & Associates can be counted on for men’s and women’s cuts, as well as blow drys, updos or even hair colouring.

3 Founded by celebrity stylist Brian Phillips, World Salon is an environmentally conscious destination for a cut or updo. Solar panels heat water for the salon, which also exclusively uses a line of products developed by Phillips that are scent- and paraben-free.

4 Upscale men’s purveyor Harry Rosen has been in business for more than six decades. Its multiple downtown locations carry coveted designers like Canali, Etro and Tom Ford.

5 Modern gents can suit up at one of two GotStyle boutiques, which feature suits and accessories from such international labels as Oscar of Sweden, Sand and The Common Folk.

6 Well known for its superior quality and well-tailored knitwear, Marlowe offers a fine selection of apparel for work and evening, as well as outerwear.

7 Elegant feminine silhouettes in predominantly neutral shades are the hallmark of the made-in-Canada collection at Judith & Charles.

8 Paris-based Loding is known for its unique concept: items across each clothing category have a fixed price; the cost of every shoe in the store is the same. In addition to men’s brogues, derbys, boots and moccasins, there’s also a selection of shirts, sweaters and scarves.

9 Family-owned Davids has an extensive stock of designer footwear brands for both sexes. Heels by Thierry Rabotin, Charlotte Olympia and Nicholas Kirkwood are particularly sought after.
