I first visited Samson to get my existing suit checked for fitting/alterations about a month prior to my wedding. It was a suit I had purchased while traveling in Vietnam, which I thought was pretty good at the time, but something about it just didn't seem totally right, it didn't feel "groom-worthy". The material was pretty good, construction seemed OK to me, but the shape and fit just wasn't quite there. Steve showed me what separated that suit from a properly shaped suit. The difference was very apparent. He offered to help me out in light of my situation, saying he could have a new suit made to measure and delivered within 3 weeks. He offered a very reasonable price which was appreciated as I wasn't really expecting to buy a new suit that day. In the end, Steve presented me with a beautiful classic 3-piece suit that looks and feels great. We worked together to pair it with the right bowtie, and he helped me choose the best ties for the groomsmen as well. Steve takes great pride in his craft, is eager to share his knowledge, and takes time to express his philosophy on the importance of dressing well in modern society - something you may not get in most sales/service interactions, but I feel is appropriate for the personal nature of his business.I will be returning to Samson the next time I need a classic garment made, and would recommend him to any tasteful man looking to invest in quality menswear at a fair price.

I bought 2 MTM suit and a shirt. The suits were of pretty good quality and fit for the price and I am very happy. The shirt didn't fit well but Steve is getting a replacement. Overall I had great experience. Thank you Steve. More...

I had turned to Steve at Samson's for a suit and a shirt. Through conversation, he helped me define the purpose of the suit and the style that I was comfortable with. The process of fabric selection, measuring, fittings and adjustments, along with his impeccable service, produced a suit and shirt I am extremely happy with. Highly recommended! More...

Went for a bespoke make. Steve and his team has it down to an art. Received a simple but timeless garment, made to fit like a glove. It was a pleasant process, almost therapeutic. The whole process took about a month and a half, but you can't rush these things. Make sure to communicate what you want and what you're looking for. Steve can guide you but he can't read your mind. Would highly recommend just stepping into his workshop and having a chat over some tea with him. If clothes make a man, and a tailor makes your clothes, you'd better be picky about your tailor. Steve will fit you right. More...

I am happy with the pants and shirts I got here. In particular the pants were bizarrely comfortable and fit well. I get compliments on the shirts. I would recommend this tailor but be advised that tailored clothing is a lot more involved than buying off the rack. More...

It is my first suit ever in my life. I really make a right choice for choosing Steve. He made a brilliant suit for my graduation. I learned a lot from him as well. If you want to have a nice suit with reasonable price, you should come here! More...

I'm a first time customer. I called and saw Steve and had some real tight timelines as I had a very important business trip upcoming. Another tailor said "no way" but not Steve. At my first fitting, the suit was a 95% fit. First fitting! Steve went out of his way to deliver the suit 2 days earlier than promised. I will wear it with pride and have already ordered a new sports jacket. More...

Every man grows up wanting to have a professional tailored suit. As a young man growing up with English Father it was always proper to have a gentleman dress like one. However in today’s age, online has taken over almost everything. Here’s the exception, the journey, one on one contact, personalized questions and customs touches. Things you cannot get from online programs. Steve keeps the tradition alive with a connection. The suit Steve made for my wedding will be eternalized in our photos, and it’s safe to say a proper fitted suit will always be in style. Thank you my friend for helping me stand with confidence, pride and focus. If I can offer any advice to upcoming men/woman, remember weight can fluctuate when your stressed. I lost a few pounds and it showed in my suit. Thankfully Steve was there to take out the slack, but nevertheless, it makes a huge difference. Be mindful, and don’t take it out on him. Huge thanks Steve!! More...

I first heard of Samson Suits when my brother got married.
He tailored his suit with them and He told me that’s the ‘go to’ place for a great tailored suit in Vancouver.

My own experience at Samson suits was nothing but amazing!

I met Steve just 3 or 4 weeks prior to my wedding.. yes.
I was under the impression that this kind of timeframe should work..
I realized quickly, that I should have started this whole process at least double that time..

Nevertheless, Steve managed to pull it off!

I ordered a 3 piece suit, the fit was just right.
I did own a few suits in my past, this one definetly sits on me like a dream.

Samson suits delivered an amazing product at great price, with great attention to the smallest details.

Will post photos when I get them..

I can’t thank them enough for helping me with my most important day!

Found Steve online through some reviews and gave him a try. I ordered a bespoke suite and a shirt - both turned out to be outstanding! I highly recommend giving these guys a try as they have a high attention to detail and cater to requests in a timely manner. I will be a client here going forward. More...

Steve saved the day by graciously fixing some pants which he hadn't originally made. I'd been struggling with indochino for 7 months trying to get my wedding suit in order and they had no idea how to fix some of the issues and wouldn't admit it. Finally I grew fed-up as my wedding grew nearer and Steve, seeing the stress in my face rapidly identified and fixed the issues with the pants and make them look like actual pants! which apparently indochino is incapable of. Thanks again Steve for saving the day for us! More...

Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, etc. do not hold a candle to the personal touch and quality of Samson Shirt and Suitmakers.

Our experience at Samson was a great one. We were desperate for a quality suit due to an unexpected job interview which required a decent suit and a very tight schedule. Steve delivered all of that in only three days, as well as an amazing service and some useful knowledge he shared on tailoring.In the end the suit was really a great fit after his alterations.Not only will we be coming back but we also highly recommend him to tailor your suits.Great thanks to Steve and his team!

I'd been been looking around for a tailor for some time, to get some new pants and, or, suits made. After a particularly bad experience at a supposedly high end menswear shop, I decided that I was done with off-the-rack. Plus, a buddy of mine had converted to mtm clothing, and said I had to try it out. Ok great... so where to go? After spending nearly a year (yes that long...12 months...) thinking about it, reading reviews, then reading them again, I decided to try Samson Shirt and Suitmakers. I sent Steve a note, he responded quickly and we set an appointment.And am I ever glad I did! (So first thing, understand that for most guys you're going to pay a little more than you're used to--depending on cloth choice and what exactly you want---and that cost and value are not the same thing. In the long run quality and classic craftsmanship will cost you significantly less.) That out of the way...I went today to pick up my pants, took one look and immediately said let's get some jackets done! Beautiful material. Fantastic fit. I had some questions about weight and body shape, which Steve readily answered, and made some suggestions while I am in 'flux.' Added a couple vests.Steve is a gentleman and a fantastic conversationalist. He is also a master of his craft--an artist--and someone I would wholeheartedly recommend if you want to look good....really good. And if you want to understand how what you wear, and how you wear it speaks volumes about you. And you should want to know this. And you should go see Steve. One look at your new clothes, and you'll wish you'd done it much much sooner! Call him. Get yourself looking GOOD!Cheers,CM More...

I was looking for a person who specialise in tailoring suits. I was a bit scared because it was first time I was looking for a tailor instead of buying readymade suit. Somehow, I found Steve and he demonstrated a lot of knowledge in tailoring. As a game designer, I always look for perfection which I found on Steve. I asked him to make three piece suit for my wedding. We selected the fabric together, the style and the time. The day I got my suit, it was perfect fit and 100% what I was looking for. I have received so many compliments for the suit. Thank you so much Steve and I am glad I found you. More...

Steve was a patient and attentive man. Kind and intelligent. It was a pleasure to get my suit custom made from him. Everything fit great and was a hit at my wedding. His fair prices for the quality you receive can’t be matched anywhere in town. Highly recommended. See you soon. More...

Always wanted my tailored shirt. Samson's tailored me the shirt with high quality fabric, within a reasonable time, and for an acceptable price. They also have special deals that I found then interesting (3 shirts for 250). More...

My first visit to this place was on Friday June the 2nd 2017. I was desperate for a quality suit and a quality service. All of it and even more I was able to find in this great store. Steve is amazing professional and his knowledge is way beyond my expectations. I was able to get great quality suit with all the adjustments by next day. Service, quality and personal relationship are the key things in any business, but they are even more important when it comes to a suit. I know for sure that I will be ordering my suits from Steve for many many years in the future, because of my great experience, and because he has amazing personality. Thank you very much ! See you soon again. More...

I have bought from Steve a tuxedo for my daughter's wedding about two weeks ago. I am very impressed with the unique look and the perfect fit . During the night of the wedding I have received many compliments which made me feel so proud. I felt very blessed to have this opportunity to be looked at by Steve ,who exemplifies all the skills that a true tailor master should have . Steve belongs to a rare breed of people that add incredible values like finesse and class to their creation. I also believe that Steve is a genius at what he does because of his magical ability to bring out your inner beauty to the game ,in addition , to the overall stunning look. I do recommend Samson Wardrobes . Thank you Steve you have gained a life long customer.Shmuel Carmeli More...

I needed a suit so I went to Samson Suitmakers. Steve custom made my suit using the same Italian fabric as all the high end brands (Armani, Hugo Boss, etc). It fits better than perfect and cost me less than half had I gone to Holt Renfrew or Harry Rosen. If you need a suit or dress shirts, go see Steve! More...

I am at the start of my career and starting to build a quality wardrobe. I couldn't be happier with my experience thus far. I wasn't 100% sure exactly what I was looking for; Steve was extremely patient as he helped me through the process. I am eagerly awaiting the final result. He offers exceptional customer service, high quality tailoring with a personal touch and very reasonable prices.If you're like me and haven't worked with a tailor before, give him a call. More...

I've been to multiple places that specialize in tailoring suits. But my experience at Samson was a great experience. He demonstrated a lot of knowledge in tailoring and it was a very relaxed fitting. Not only did he explain why for every detail to the suit but he showed me multiple suits and options and gave his honest opinion of what would flatter my body type. I'll definitely be seeing him again when it's time to order a new one. Highly recommend him to tailor your suits. More...

Steve was extremely helpful in guiding me through the process and was very knowledgeable about the craft of suit making. Great quality, great price and I feel assured I'll be looking good on my wedding day. I feel like I'm not just getting a suit. I'm getting MY suit. More...
