Kiton store to open in Toronto

Share post:

One of the world’s most expensive menswear brands, Kiton, will soon have a Canadian store location. It will open late spring/early summer in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville area, and it will be North America’s fourth free-standing Kiton store. Known for its high-priced suits, Kiton offers off-the-rack styles that can approach $10,000, while its made-to-measure suits can sell for well over $20,000 each.

Toronto’s Kiton store will be located at the northeast corner of Hazelton Avenue and Yorkville Avenue. It will be owned and operated by adjacent menswear retailer V Hazelton, located at 5 Hazelton Avenue. Kiton will occupy a corner retail space at 114 Yorkville Avenue, that recently housed a condominium sales centre.

Kiton was founded in Naples, Italy, in 1956. In Canada, Kiton is carried at Harry Rosen in Toronto and at L’Uomo in Montreal. Kiton currently has three American store locations: in New York City, Bal Harbour, Florida and in Las Vegas. It is also carried at upscale stores including Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. There’s no word yet if any Canadian Saks stores will carry Kiton.

As mentioned above, Kiton clothing is notoriously pricey. Men’s dress shirts are generally priced in the $600-1000 range. Trousers are generally in excess of $1,000 and blazers, $7,000. A dedicated store for such high-priced menswear speaks to Toronto’s wealth. 

Thank you Anjli Patel for notifying us Kiton’s new Toronto store.
