Surmesur is a tailor-made men’s clothing retailer started by brothers Vincent and François Thériault. They opened their first store in Quebec City, and soon expanded to Toronto and Ottawa. The concept is fairly straight forward. You choose your fabric from more than 5000 options, then with the help of a consultant you choose a specific style for the article of clothing you want, finally they take your measurements and make your custom piece. They only difficulty I can foresee is narrowing down your choice of fabrics with such a huge selection.
