Meticulous tailoring — including tiered shoulders, chevron-emblazoned sleeves and bold 3-D braid Cashmere BT trim — give this shawl-collared coachman’s coat from DALLA enough masculine romantic appeal for a Jane Austin protagonist.



The son of hard-working parents who immigrated to Canada from East Africa in 1974, Hussein Dhalla honoured their ambitions for him by completing a business degree at Toronto’s York University and working in finance before making the risky leap into the fashion industry with his own store in 2008. It all worked out! Today his DALLA collection, conceived in 2013, of contemporary, high-quality tailored menswear has become the go-to resource for style-conscious financial types and celebs like rapper Kardinal Offishall, actor Vinay Virmani and R&Ber The Weeknd.
