“The Tom Tailor Group which holds a 51 per cent in the JV will introduce its Tom Tailor, Tom Tailor Denim and Tom Tailor Contemporary brands beginning July 2015,” a press release informed.

The international expansion into Canada will take place mainly in the wholesale segment, in particular by increasing the number of shop-in-shops with high-profile trade partners.

According to the apparel marketer, it will benefit from the expertise of The Mercer House, with decades of experience in sales and marketing in both the retail and wholesale sectors.

"The Canadian market is very attractive for companies in the fashion industry and is at the same time very similar to the European market,” Dieter Holzer, CEO of Tom Tailor Holding AG said.

“With this joint venture, we are convinced to not only successfully position ourselves in the Canadian market, but also grow in the future," Holzer observed.
