"Recommended in Toronto Life Shopping"
Exile has been in the business of glad rags for over 30 years. Owner Lynn Harpell opened the original store in 1975 with punk, DIY, and anti-war sensibilities, along with a nod to the Rolling Stone's "Exile on Main Street."
Exile has made it's mark on the retro fashion scene with a jaw-dropping collection of 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's vintage, alongside favourite well-worn and perfectly faded Levi's jeans. Lynn and partner Frank Razzouki's twinkling treasure chests, nestled in the heart of Kensington Market, have become the premier vintage-shopping destination for celebrities, international buyers, fashion and movie stylists, and most importantly, for those who don't let the size of their bank account dictate their style.
