Suit Yourself suits itself… and you.


A fixture of the Halifax Farmers’ Market (1496 Lower Water Street) since 1993, Suit Yourself (420-9358) actually expanded in May 2009, now offering even more Canadian designers than ever. “There’s always a 50-70 percent off sale going on,” says owner Lori Pearce, who says though her regular hours are fixed (12pm-5:30pm Monday-Friday and 9am-2pm Saturday) she will keep the store open late by appointment for groups of four, providing the whole store for your private shopping pleasure and supplying wine to go along with the experience. Women will find everything from casual to cocktail to business wear, including accessories, while men will be pleased with the suits by Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and DKNY, and Pearce will do the fitting. (Oh, and when the bulk of the market moves to the Seaport this summer, Suit Yourself will stay put.)
