The investment adviser who moonlights as a bespoke-suiting guru
Back in 2007, when Michael Levine was preparing to start work in the financial industry, he went searching for a tailor who could make him an affordable, well-cut suit to fit his athletic frame. He ended up at Garrison Bespoke, then operating out of a cubbyhole on King West, and quickly became a regular. Heads turned on Bay Street when Levine would sport eggplant-hued or pale gold suits to the office, and in time, colleagues began asking him for sartorial tips. He dutifully marched them over to Garrison. In 2014, he even took a year-long sabbatical from his work in wealth management to learn the menswear trade for himself, and though he’s since returned to his day job, he sometimes still pinch-hits as a stylist for friends and colleagues.
