You are Unique
“As a bespoke tailor, I will listen to what you want and deliver comfort
and style that suit you, regardless of your size or shape.”
The right suit makes you feel good, look good and moves smoothly with you, regardless of your shape or size, whether you’re a giraffe, rhinoceros, leopard, gazelle, or elephant.
Bespoke is the art and science of designing clothes only for you, and making clothes only for you! There’s nothing like the feel of your own bespoke suit, and Isaac Ely hand tailors that suit just like the “Emperor’s”, so it feels like your birthday suit, because it just fits.
Our hand tailored suits are contoured to your fit, with attention to function, style and form; something unique. Hand cut, hand shaped, and hand sewn, the attention given to your garment is personal, right down to button holes! For better quality, we use the good stuff – luxurious imported fabrics & linings, camel hair canvas, and horn buttons.
Be warned, we will be seeing each other – as there are various fittings involved in the tailoring of your bespoke suit!
Tailored to fit you and you alone—perfectly
All our custom shirts are hand cut and sewn with exquisite attention paid to every detail. We have a great selection of shirt fabrics including luxurious Egyptian cotton, Sea Island quality, Swiss cotton, linen, cotton and cashmere blends.
In addition, we use the finest interlining for our collars and cuffs and imported Australian mother of pearl buttons. Whether you order your tailored shirt for business, casual or formal wear, we create the right cuff, collar and cut to suit your individuality.

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
Made to Measure
Bespoke tailoring involves creating a new cut for each and every client, doing multiple fittings, and finishing each suit by hand. Made-to-measure on the other hand, uses pre-existing base patterns that are modified to fit the wearer and are typically done without any fittings.
That’s where we BREAK the tradition – we FIT the client! Not just on delivery, but when we take the order, so the suit is right from the start! Then we do a second fitting when the suit is complete, to make it yours! Our primary business is Bespoke, so we are not salespeople or just stylists, but rather real tailors with great understanding of fashion. Our passion is fitting clients with clothes that really fit and look great.
With our made-to-measure embrace a new system of innovation that customizes existing patterns, the reality is, this means we achieve a good fit at a lower price; Bespoke offers a perfect fit, but that’s the real difference. All in all, our made-to-measure is a great suit, with great value, for a better price than Bespoke, and we even offer the same choice in fabrics. Made-to-measure simply offers a value that will make most customers very pleased with their new custom clothing.
Every detail matters, Your tailored clothes will reveal your hidden strengths.
Every detail matters, Isaac uses his experience and creative imagination to design your custom clothing, so your clothes reflect the real you, your personality, the way you live your life and your values.

Isaac, your service is beyond outstanding.
At 72 years of age I can boast that I’ve had a number of bespoke custom suits made for my wardrobe.
Never with the beautiful fit and styling that I get from you.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand on top of it all, you drive to Montreal to service my needs.
ABCD = ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY
I have only good things to say about the quality and care taken by Isaac Ely, not everything was perfect when the various items were finished but Isaac was on top of it and both my shirts and suits have been made to my expectations and above.
I have tried several tailors around Toronto and none, I repeat none have given the service and the quality I have received from Isaac.
I recommend him to near everyone I speak to when they compliment me on my suits.
If suits make the man, then Isaac's suits have made me James Bond. From the second I walked in his shop, he had me perfectly sized up and within moments had me choosing trendy, yet unique and personalized patterns. The service you get with him us unparalleled, and the suits that he has tailored have been simply outstanding. The incredible quality, the perfect cut, the refinements, just the overall polish and care applied are all reflective of his passion and skills. I look forward to my next visit."
Isaac Ely hearkens back to the glory days of gentlemen’s tailoring, where one’s tailor was also one’s trusted confidant, gracious host, and style advisor. Whenever I go to see Isaac, I am warmly welcomed and provided with sound advice on what fabrics and cuts would suit be best. I have purchased suits all over the world, and at the end of the day, I always come back to Isaac as he is the only one who provides consistent quality and convenience. I cannot recommend Isaac enough, although I am bit hesitant to share the best kept secret in Canadian bespoke tailoring.
“I was introduced to Isaac through my Head Office, as we have him on retainer for some custom corporate apparel. He was extremely patient in accommodating my schedule and the final product was perfect. Thanks Isaac!”

Isaac Ely is the master....when it comes too Men's Fashion.
“I came to Isaac looking for some help as a subject matter expert on clothing purchased elsewhere. He was fair and just and worked quickly to help me out. Walking into his place of business, I noticed the impeccable cleanliness of his space and some of the products he had on display. Needless to say, I felt like I would receive the level of service one would expect from a professional and not only did he deliver like a professional but did so with a level of care one could only get from an artisan. Isaac Ely is a pleasure to work with and delightful to do business with.”
Isaac makes you feel like family and is attentive to your needs. He balances this well with his knowledge, expertise and seemingly innate ability to create a perfectly fitted suit.

“Isaac introduced me to the bespoke suit world in 2007 and I am never going back to buying a suit off the rack! The quality of materials, the craftsmanship of design and sewing of the suit are unparalleled. I have now purchased over a dozen suits from Isaac and everyone is a work of art. Isaac’s attention to detail, his passion for the job, his love for his clientele and his outstanding service remind me of an earlier time when quality and service really mattered!
