About Us by House of Salgado

House of Salgado is one of the few remaining Toronto Custom Made Men’s Suit Stores. At Toronto’s House of Salgado all about our suits are Custom Made or “Made-to-Order” from the finest fabrics available. Toronto’s House of Salgado Tailor brings a long custom made tailoring tradition to their trade from working in the famed suit fabric mills of Sabadell, located near Barcelona, Spain. Men’s Toronto Tailor and Founder, Mr. Antonio Salgado, immigrated to Canada in 1951 settling in Toronto. Over the years, as family members joined him in Canada to work alongside, Antonio opened Rapido Alterations and Invisible Mendings in 1960 which soon developed a reputation for fine workmanship.

House of Salgado Men’s Tailor Shop soon opened a second store as one of the first tenants in the new Royal Bank Plaza building in downtown Toronto. House of Salgado’s expansion into the Toronto market furthered House of Salgado’s reputation for high quality European craftsmanship at affordable prices. House of Salgado has distinguished itself from other Toronto Tailors, by taking pride in carefully hand fitting all of its custom made suits and custom made shirts.

Each of it’s custom made suits, custom made shirts, custom made top coats and custom made formal wear are crafted by being individually cut and fitted to each client during the basting (skeleton) stage. The garment is then re-cut per the fitting corrections, prepared for a second fitting and checked to see if further adjustments may be required. House of Salgado uses only the finest fabrics to create an unparalleled Custom Made Gentleman’s Clothing including Scabal, Holland and Sherry, Dormeuil and Barberis to name a few. Although the men’s clothing product lines have expanded over the years, Toronto Tailor House of Salgado has resisted carrying any ready-to-wear men’s suits.

House of Salgado remains an exclusively custom made men’s tailor shop located in Toronto. Located downtown Toronto, it is close to its roots by serving Bay Street professionals looking for finely crafted custom made suits, custom made shirts, custom made jackets and accessories.
