Typically, my weekends in the summer are filled with bridal showers, baby showers, and weddings. This summer is looking a little different – a little more time around the pool, and a lot less time partying. That’s fine by me, but I must admit I do miss getting all gussied up for a special event. “Business casual” is a popular style of attire at the office, so let’s make “Home Fancy” a thing! Brantford has a lot of great boutiques to style your next fancy affair (whenever/wherever that may be!) The shops, known for their high-end clothing, also have lots of beautiful casual everyday wear to choose from as well:

Ludlow's Menswear is a high-end men's retail clothier in Brantford carrying a wide variety of fine men's wear brands like Tommy Bahama, Robert Graham, Lacoste, Lipson, Jack Victor and many more. Ludlow's was founded in Brantford in 1904 by brothers Ott and Charlie Ludlow, and was originally known as Ludlow Brothers Clothiers. The brothers set up their first shop in a converted livery stable on Dalhousie Street at a time when the Downtown saw people come to the store in a horse and buggy and stroll along wooden slat sidewalks. They made a name for themselves selling quality Men’s, Boy’s, and Work Wear, and have been a trusted family owned and operated business in the city ever since. Ludlow’s has been a Brantford institution for one hundred and eleven years. They’ve dressed men through nearly a dozen decades, and for every occasion, and their reputation for quality, style, and service, remains as strong as ever.
