Tiger of Sweden

Tiger of Sweden Roars into Toronto

Tiger of Sweden’s Toronto boutique is a hot shopping spot on Ossington Avenue

Ossington Avenue, a street known largely for its restaurants and bars, is gaining standing as a shopping strip—due in part to its new Tiger of Sweden store, only the second in North American. Though the Scandinavian brand is a century old, it’s been especially popular since the 1990s among young male professionals, who covet Tiger’s slim-fitting suits. The boutique’s sleek black facade emphasizes the fashion-forward company’s hipster cred. Though the label has been available at such retailers as Harry Rosen and Gotstyle, this is the first time Toronto shoppers can view a more comprehensive selection of offerings, including suede wingtips, trench coats, women’s options like jersey dresses, and accessories such as cufflinks and leather bags. —Linda Luong
