Take new Toronto la­bel Duly Equipped, for ex­am­ple. The struc­tured fab­rics and sharp, Sav­ille Row-in­spired cuts de­signer Yent­ing Chen works into blaz­ers, trousers, shirts and coats are un­ques­tion­ably hand­some, but it’s but­ton­holes bound in bright thread, lapels in­set with con­trast­ing wool, and pock­ets placed un­ex­pect­edly over the calves on trousers that make this line one to watch.

Chen comes to Toronto via Van­cou­ver and Tai­wan, where his grad­u­at­ing-year col­lec­tion won the best menswear prize at Taipei’s Shi­hChien Univer­sity. Not sur­pris­ingly, his first re­tail­ers are based in the dandy-minded UK, though we’re bet­ting it’s not long be­fore he’s dress­ing up guys at home, too.

All cloth­ing Duly Equipped.
