Toronto’s retail pop-up scene is gaining momentum, with new shopping opportunities emerging (and then disappearing) all the time. We’re keeping a lookout for the temporary shops you don’t want to miss.

At Indochino, an online menswear shop started by a pair of University of Victoria grads, it’s possible to purchase high-quality, made-to-measure suits at off-the-rack prices. The store’s website lists 60 totally customizable suit styles, with multiple options for linings, lapels, buttons, vents and pocket flaps. For a totally virtual retail experience, shoppers can input their selections and measurements online and receive their bespoke garments in the mail, usually within a few weeks. Or, for anyone who feels a bit skittish about buying stuff sight-unseen—and doesn’t mind a little human interaction—there’s this: Indochino’s “travelling tailor” pop-up shop at King and Spadina, where men can examine fabrics and cuts in person, get themselves professionally measured and consult with style pros about their most becoming suiting options. Appointments are required (you can make them here).

Until June 8. 425 King St. W., Unit 102, indochino.com
