About Us by House of Salgado

Classic Design and Custom Style

House of Salgado brings a long tradition of custom tailoring from the famed suit fabric mills of Sabadell, near Barcelona, Spain to the streets of Toronto. In 1960, Antonio Salgado opened his custom clothing shop in Toronto’s financial district shortly after his arrival from Spain. House of Salgado has since thrived to become one of Toronto’s most sophisticated custom clothiers for both men and women. Their speciality is finely-fitted suits, shirts, top coats and formal wear tailored to each customer’s exact specifications. Accessories such as ties and pocket squares as well as a small collection of ready-to-wear are also on offer.

Their custom garments are full-canvas, hand-cut and hand-sewn suits in the European tradition. Using the finest Italian cloth, House of Salgado garments are designed in the traditional British or Italian style to ensure the best fit to the buyer’s form. The fabrics are imported from 17 of the best mills in Italy (including Loro Piana, Zegna, and Reda) and offer a wide range of colour, weight, feel and price. Clients of House of Salgado experience service that is both convenient and entirely personalized through consultation, measurements, and try-ons at different phases in the garment’s creation to ensure the perfect fit. The process usually takes between four or five weeks, depending from where the fabric is imported.

Styles have changed throughout the years but House of Salgado’s commitment to quality workmanship and attention to detail remains the same. Offering custom details like unique linings, contrasting stitching options, fabrics and fabric combinations, lapel widths, ticket pockets, and cuffs, their products retain the classic elegance and sophistication – not to mention comfort – of a truly custom-made garment, which no off-the-rack retailer can ever match. And they are all made in Canada.

Over the years the House of Salgado has attracted and served an eclectic range of customers: Bay Street professionals, business icons, television actors, film producers, and travellers from across Canada and around the world have become both loyal and repeat customers. Our new location in the entertainment district offers an exciting vantage point to watch the comings and goings of celebrities and distinguished visitors.

As one of the few remaining custom clothiers, House of Salgado strives to keep the dying art of custom and bespoke suit-making alive. The staff take pride in their commitment to carefully hand-fitting each garment and offering European craftsmanship at affordable prices. For those who desire a sophisticated touch to their wardrobe, House of Salgado delivers beautiful hand-made products that reflect your personal style and enhance your unique personal brand.
