Walter Beauchamp :: A Tailored History of Toronto is a lively tale of how this vaunted company has survived the effects of world wars and the Great Depression, store relocations and the wrecking ball, as well as the fickle face of fashion retail-with grace, elegance, and, always, discretion.

Told from the intimate perspective of a custom tailor, here in this book are stories of officers and soldiers as well as prime ministers, mayors and judges, artists and explorers, and men and women from all walks of life. Along the way, the book reveals an intriguing history of Toronto - from the precipitous changes of the twentieth century to its growth into a globally renowned city it is today- all from the vantage point of the Beauchamp shop windows.
