Mr Porter makes the online shopping experience feel like reading a beautiful magazine. Discover designer goods through stunning visual stories about anything from 1950s office attire to how to fell a tree.
Best for: Luxury brands that are sometimes hard to find in Canada.
Buy this one thing: Grey slim-fit wool suit by Gucci. $1,515.


Gilt offers some pretty incredible discounts — up to 60 percent off — on high-end labels. The site is like a flash sale, so you have to act fast before stock runs out. In addition to fantastic men’s clothing, the site also sells furniture, kitchen appliances and even baseball memorabilia.
Best for: Designer suits at a reasonable price.
Buy this one thing: Brown cap-toe Oxfords by Harrys of London. $357.


Everlane prides itself on its “radical transparency.” Find out where your clothing was made down to the very factory, including where it’s located, how many employees work there and even who runs it. The range of items is limited, which simplifies the shopping experience; they make two styles of dress shirts, and they make them damn well.
Best for: Guilt-free basics and well-made leather accessories.
Buy this one thing: Light blue slim-fit poplin dress shirt. $55.
