"John strongly believes that a brand of clothing can mean very little if it doesn’t fit the customer correctly – fit is paramount."

Shopping for the right suit can often times be a daunting challenge. With various styles, fits and colour combinations to choose from it is important to find a place that can help make sense of it all. Larger chain retailers typically do not have the expert knowledge you require to truly give you the best advice. John McNabb Clothing, with its sterling reputation and years of experience and knowledge, is Downtown Barrie’s “finest in traditional and contemporary men’s fashion”. They can recommend the best fit, style and colour for you, sometimes without even taking any measurements.

John McNabb Clothing is owned and operated by John McNabb and his son Trevor, and has been in business for over 23 years. John is a community man involved in various organizations like the Rotary Club and Habitat for Humanity, aside from running a successful men’s clothing store. As a young man, John had a strong interest in the garment industry and the etiquette that is often synonymous with proper dress attire. At the young age of 15 he dove into the business and began his experience and his education in the vast world of men’s clothing.
