Per Lui: The Legacy Of Men’s Fashion
Generations of gentlemen with discerning taste and class have been welcomed at PER LUI.
During the 1980s, the Vaughan community was nothing but tomato-farm fields as far as the eye could see. In 1988, while the community was still establishing its roots, a charming men’s clothing store opened its doors on Weston Road at Highway 7.
What the community did not know was that the same clothing store would go on to become a men’s fashion institution.
“Everybody who walks into PER LUI is treated like a celebrity. Everybody’s unique and we treat everybody with respect. It’s our service, honesty and passion that sets us apart.”
Thirty-five years later that store, known as PER LUI, has become a pillar of the community due to its owners’ passion and ambition.
Residents living in neighbouring communities in York Region go out of their way to spend their money at the one-stop shop created just “for him.”
Everybody who walks through the front doors is welcomed like family, PER LUI style, greeted with a smile, handshake, and an offer of espresso.
“Our family business has grown with other families. It’s not about making the sale. It’s about making long-lasting relationships,” says Sandy Mirotti, co- owner of PER LUI along with his brother Tony Mirotti and Paul Aureli.
Sandy has always loved fashion. Even as a child, he enjoyed dressing up to impress. Most of all, he was fascinated not just with unique styles but how people truly feel their best when they’re “dressed to impress” according to their own unique style. Growing up in an Italian family that stayed true to its culture and travelling to Italy every year with his parents further fuelled his passion for fashion.
“We must admit the best clothing and best designers are all from Italy. Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, you name it. Italians passed things on from generation to generation over hundreds of years. For me, they make things last because there is so much pride and respect for it, and we embody those same values here,” says Sandy.
Today PER LUI is at the forefront of men’s fashion and offers an evolving collection that represents the latest styles from around the world. The range of items they offer is extensive, but everything they select provides both exceptional quality and value. What was once a small and quaint store is now a 3,000-square-foot state-of-the-art men’s clothing store containing apparel and accessories from the most sought- after brands in the world. Additionally, they offer made-to-measure suits that are tailored in-house to your exact specifications. So, whether you are looking for a fine suit for work or a casual outing or your wedding day, the PER LUI team can help you to create a look that perfectly reflects your style.
“Everybody who walks into PER LUI is treated like a celebrity. Everybody’s unique and we treat everybody with respect. It’s our service, honesty and passion that sets us apart. What is most important to us is that you look and feel good when you walk out,” says Sandy.
PER LUI proudly celebrated the grand opening of their newly renovated store on Oct. 9, 2023. Members of the community attended the exciting occasion to show their support and admiration for the PER LUI team, as they have all grown together over the decades of their success. The sons of gentlemen who purchased their wedding suits 20 to 30 years ago are now walking in for the same reason.
“I am very happy and proud of myself and the entire team for everything we accomplished. Together, we’re one big family,” says Sandy.
PER LUI and its team have set the standard for great style. Their reputation for creating looks that others admire and appreciate has been unmatched by all who attempt to imitate them. Their style of service reflects who they are and their values. They are class-act gentlemen who are committed to your style and confidence.
So, what are you waiting for? Go there and relax in luxurious surroundings, sip an espresso, and let them help you unleash your style to the fullest.
