Currently the store is offering their own line of clothes ranging from casual shirts, club clothes, classic shirts, suits, underwear and accessories. Every clothes from the shop have names after their friends. A white with black stripes short sleeve button down shirt with 2 breast pocket and belt loop called “Richie” piqued my interest. It reminded me of an Alexander McQueen shirt I covet from his summer collection. There are a lot of unique wearable and fun clothes that normally one cannot find in a lot of “fast fashion” stores. The pair of green pants with a zipper that goes all the way to the back made me giggled. The shop sells a lot of cool graphic T-shirts too.
Aside from their own label Icon for Petite Men is offering a line of leather bags for men by Montreal designer Christopher Kon. The store has a gray Christopher Kon overnight bag that looks very desirable. (Icon is the only store in Toronto that sells Christopher Kon’s men’s line).
Lisandro said that he came up with the store concept after getting tired finding great fitting clothes specially business suits for his frame while he was working in a hotel industry. “I have to get my shirts from Gap Kids and if I find something that fits, me Richard have to fight over which one of us going to get it.”
He also hinted that they soon adding other high designer labels to their offerings, the DSquared2 in particular whose clothes are made for smaller built.(I know, my XL 52 DSquared2 fall black wool coat barely fits me.) They plan to position Icon for Petit Men to be one of top retail store servicing a particular segment of the market
Here are some of the items from thier ICON collection:
