Why us

We were founded on the belief that a great fit and high quality don't have to have a luxury price.

Why does great fitting, high quality menswear cost so much? The truth is it doesn't have to. Bloated distribution models, unnecessary markups and greedy profit margins all lead to artificially high prices. Like you, we appreciate great fit and notice the details and quality of a better made garment, but can't justify the high prices.

Our goal when we started SPIER & MACKAY was clear. Disrupt the broken, traditional menswear model and really deliver exceptional value and experience to our customers.

Our Story

Our journey began in 2004 during a chance trip to a south asian textile market. We were shocked to find that we could directly purchase top quality dress shirt cloth from renowned European and Asian Mills at wholesale prices. We then took the cloth to local, seasoned tailors to have custom shirts handmade for us. All of this was done at a fraction of the cost we would normally spend for a poorly fitting, mediocre quality Off-the-Rack Shirt back in Canada.

That was the Eureka moment. Major brands control the menswear market and keep prices artificially high. It was possible to produce the same high quality dress shirts at a fraction of the price. By bypassing the middlemen and delivering the products directly to you, you get the same (or in many cases, better) fit and quality you expect from a luxury brand for a price that finally makes sense.

Fast forward to 2009 and the opportunity finally presented itself for us to pursue our dream. We spent hundreds of hours finding the right sources and partners to help in our mission. Finally on May 5th, 2010 we opened our doors (both to our Mississauga warehouse and online) and the rest is history.

In Fall of 2014 we launched our first small collection of Off-the-Rack suits in just three basic colours. Today, suits account for over 60% of our sales and we're proud to continually push boundaries of what's possible for the balance of great fits, high quality and tremendous value.

For those of you just joining us on our journey, welcome. We hope you like what we have to offer. For those of you who have been traveling with us for some time now, thank you. Our customers are our priority, more so than the products we make. Without great customers, we cannot make great products. So thank you to everyone who has made this dream a reality.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We've built this company around three key principals: Fit, Quality, Value. Every product we release must adhere to these three values. If we can't achieve any one to our standards, then we will not release that product. It's that simple.

FIT

We offer the attack of a made-to-gauge shirt with the accommodation of prepared to-wear. The greater part of our shirts are estimated by neckline and sleeve length. Sleeves can be abbreviated by our group of in-house tailors to guarantee the ideal length.

Who We Are

We have a rich history of garment production in our blood. Our roots in the apparel business stretch back to 1971. It's what we know inside and out. Its what makes us uniquely qualified as garment manufacturers. We intimately understand textiles, patterns, construction techniques and all other aspects of what truly makes for a great fit and a quality garment.

Often you read about recent startups in the menswear space who have founders with a background in law, finance, technology, etc. What you don't read is that it's rare that any of them have any apparel manufacturing knowledge at all. This is how we approach this space differently. Our passion for this business. Our passion for apparel quality and production. Our collective experience and knowledge is the reason we can deliver great fitting, high quality menswear at such a incredible value.

Fabrics

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

Custom Fit

If you’re particular about how a shirt fits, you’re in good company. Our custom size options are incredibly comprehensive for any body type. We have a powerful custom sizes interface, combined with clear, helpful advice and videos to give you full control of your sizing and fit.

We’ve also pioneered new size technologies such as Smart Sizes, which leverages powerful statistical algorithms and our large dataset of sizes to predict your perfect fit. And it’s our perfect fit guarantee, complimentary alterations and expert customer service that help ensure you end up with shirts that fit exactly right.

Precise, Quality
Construction

Our construction methods combine sophisticated technology with traditional shirt making methods. We use computer generated patterns and robotic fabric cutters that are fast and reliable, with assembly by experienced tailors who carefully hand-sew shirts with care to help achieve a perfect fit every time – guaranteed.

Our collars come in a range of constructions, from crisp, fused business collars to soft, casual, unfused collars. Side seams are always reinforced with gussets for increased durability. We employ split yokes by default with beautiful pattern matching behind the collar. Brass collar stays are standard.

Personal Style

Sometimes it’s about being unique and standing out. Sometimes it’s about dialing in your own version of a classic look. Regardless, we provide the options to get you there.

With over 400 fabrics, and new ones rotating in every week, we cover a wide range of styles — not to mention, more than 20 collar, cuff, and button styles to help you tailor your look. Finish it off with an collar or cuff accent and personalized monogram.

You can design your own shirt from scratch or customize one of our featured designs to get exactly the look you’re going for.
