These Toronto specialty boutiques and chains have the right fit for all manner of size, shape and need.
Men of a Certain Height
Since 1928 Brown’s A Short Man’s World has been catering to men short and stout, with statures 5′ 8″ and under, paying particular attention to the proper placement of elbows and pockets. Bugatti, Zegna by Cambridge, Hugo Boss, Kenneth Cole and Samuelsohn are among the designer labels stocked here.
Petite-framed gals can find the perfect coat, suit and even cocktail dress at Laura, which has a selection for ladies 5′ 4″ and under in sizes two to 16. The Laura Plus collection includes sizes 14 to 24.
Addition Elle is a one-stop shop for full-figured ladies looking for undergarments, dresses, bathing suits and more in sizes 14 to 26. Likewise at Toni Plus, which features designer labels like Eileen Fisher, Basler, Lafayette 148 and Tomo in sizes 14 to 22.
People With Disabilities
The IZ Collection for Adaptive Clothing by Izzy Camilleri is a line specially created for wheelchair-bound men and women. Pieces are styled to accommodate a seated position, and there’s less fabric in the back to avoid pooling around wheels.
