Blue Button Shop
Where: 1499 Dundas St. W., bluebuttonshop.com
Atmosphere: Blue Button Shop is a cool contemporary boutique on the Dundas West Strip, inspired by owner Tamae Miyazaki’s time living in Japan. The store’s atmosphere reflects the shop’s belief in providing a comfortable and fashionable place for people to find what they like, and what makes them look (and feel) good. This is the go-to spot for serious denim nerds to geek out over the selection of Japanese duds.
Brands: Digawel or Slow and Kapital for women plus a larger selection of 12 to 15 brands for men
Fave pieces for fall: Look out for an expansion of their denim stock with more raw and selvedged Japanese options for both ladies and men as the weather gets cooler. Right now I’m loving the wider, relaxed cuts from orSlow and Digawel.
Average price for a pair: Around $280, with a range between $250 and $600
Services: Tamae and her team understand that finding the perfect pair of jeans is not easy and they’re there to help clients through that journey by sharing their vast knowledge of all things denim.
