Edmonton stores to help you suit up

There’s a show named for this piece of clothing. Justin Timberlake named half of his last album after it. It even has its own catch-phrase, courtesy of Barney Stinson on the show How I Met Your Mother. The suit has garnered this much attention for a reason. So suit up at these Edmonton menswear havens.

Their awesome collection of suits is actually really reasonably priced, so they make good party suits (spill something the dry cleaner won’t be able to get out? No problem!). The price range goes from about $180 to $800 and the looks are just as varied – beautiful Italian wool suits from Tiger of Sweden, a two-tone pique suit from Calvin Klein, wool and silk flannel suits from DKNY. Imagine your dream suit, then come find it here, for less than your monthly rent.

The Helm Clothing

10125 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0Z9

When I asked my gentlemen friends where they prefer to buy their suits in Edmonton. One of them simply said: “You have money to burn? The Helm.” Their suits, while exquisite, will cost you a pretty penny. Ralph Lauren Black Label and Corneliani suits do not come cheap. But, there is the occasional suit from the Helm collection or Luigi Bianchi that costs under a grand. Decide your budget beforehand, because once you’re there and put on a beautiful suit, you won’t want to leave without it.

Derks Formals & Menswear

10120 151 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5P 1T4

While I often think of Derks as a place where one rents suits for fancy occasions, like your own wedding or graduation, it’s time to start seeing it for what it really is: A great place to buy or rent a suit for any occasion. Need to impress someone at an upcoming party? Tuxedos and suits are cool. And remember: Every girl’s crazy about a sharp dressed man.

Their jackets are sharp and sleek, whether you go with something from Etro, Hugo Boss, Harris Wharf London, Canali or Armani. They even have an embossed velvet jacket from Armani. Imagine the places you could go in that! (The answer is awesome parties, obviously).
