Welcome to the Neighbourhood: Burrows Too
Calling all casual male trendsetters in the GTA – there’s a Burrows for you, too!
Since opening in 1976, Burrows Clothiers has established itself as a premier destination for fine men’s clothing, offering exclusive lines from all over Europe and exceptional tailoring services. Last year, owner Blake Lennox and founder Ron Burrows decided it was time to open a second location offering more casual, minimalist clothing.
“We felt strongly that there was a need for another men’s clothing store in Downtown Oakville,” says Trevor Tamowski, who worked at the original location and is now the General Manager of Burrows Too. “Our customers have been amazing and we wanted to provide them with something new and interesting. There are only so many collections you can carry in one store, so to expand properly, we needed a full second location.”
Burrows Too opened in fall 2019 with a simple tagline: “the stuff guys want.” This includes pants, tops, sports jackets, outerwear and footwear from fashion-forward brands like Eleventy, Blue Industry, Re-HasH, Superdry and Bastille, with more collections coming this spring.
The casual feel of Burrows Too attracts men of all ages looking for everything from laid back jeans and sweaters to business-casual attire that can be worn to work. Trevor says the response from the community has been fantastic, with a mix of customers from the original store and new walk-ins.
With its promising start, Trevor is hopeful that Burrows Too will become an Oakville institution just like its predecessor. “Burrows has been around for almost 50 years; we hope to achieve the same longevity with Burrows Too.”
Located between Mendocino and Lululemon at 287 Lakeshore Road East, Burrows Too is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays. For a preview of what you can expect to find in store, check out their Instagram page @burrows.too
