Dundas West’s Easy Tiger Goods carries an eclectic mix of apparel, jewellery, gifts and tchotchkes, a model associated with the Drake General Store that has recently caught on in the west end. Throwback items like metal flasks ($55), pocket combs ($12–$18) and beard oil ($40) serve the current appetite for artisanal goods with a nostalgic bent. Owner Zai Rajkotwala stops short of overly kitschy, though, by emphasizing clean lines and neutral colours—see, for instance, the soft leather oxfords by Dieppa Restrepo ($280) and colour-blocked ipad cases and wallets by Clare Vivier ($110 and $190).

As a former co-owner of Lost + Found, the café-slash-clothing store down the street, Rajkotwala learned that an in-shop coffee counter keeps the atmosphere relaxed and makes it easier to get to know customers. On the menu at Easy Tiger: ethical Reunion Island coffee, Benchmark teas, Philip’s Ice Pops and a few baked goods, plus a few high-end foodstuffs for home cooks, like canned goods by Thomas Lavers in Kensington Market.
