Independents’ Day: Canada’s Harry Rosen Has Owned the Men’s Market for Decades

TORONTO — Harry Rosen has a lock on the Canadian men’s wear market, but that hold hasn’t come without a lot of hard work.
The company was founded in 1954 by Harry and his brother Lou Rosen in a small storefront in Toronto to provide made-to-measure suits for men. The firm has since grown into a 300 million Canadian dollar ($ 228.3 million), 18-store chain with locations in the seven largest cities around the country and some 1,000 employees.
Although Harry stepped back from the day-to-day operation of the business in 2005, he still serves as an ambassador, often stopping by one of the stores to chat with customers. But he left the company in good hands: as chief executive officer since 2000, his son Larry Rosen has built on his father’s legacy. Waiting in the wings is Ian Rosen, Larry’s son, who is joining the family business this summer to oversee its digital marketing initiatives, and at the same time, ensure the eventual transition to the next generation will be seamless.
But Harry Rosen has also branched out beyond its core business, teaming up with Ermenegildo Zegna to open flagship stores for the luxury Italian label in Canada. In August, a 3,000-square-foot Zegna

Comedian Muses on Canada’s ‘Hoser’ Style

TORONTO — Happy Canada Day, eh!
Come July 1, every Canadian with a hoser in his or her heart — and there are millions of them — will take to their cottages, stretch out on those sun-warmed decks, beer in hand, and let those words trip off their lips in celebration of the Great White North’s 150th anniversary.
Indeed, for actress Ann Pornel, one of the new generation of actors performing in The Second City in Toronto, Canada’s milestone birthday offers the perfect opportunity to revisit the very essence of that “bad in plaid” persona made so famous in the Seventies and Eighties by SCTV’s hapless hosers, Bob and Doug McKenzie, portrayed by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. (Details about Pornel’s milestone performance for the company will be released in July.)
“I was five years old when I immigrated to Canada from the Philippines, so plaid flannel shirts and bed linen did not fill my home or define me as a human being. I never wore denim on denim. And my go-to stores were never Hudson’s Bay or Roots — although the stuff they sell is top drawer. But when you look past all those ‘eh’s’ and brewskis [slang for beers], there’s definitely more to
