About us


The Abbey was established in Leamington Ontario in 1972 by my dad Fred Foster who ran multiple locations in Leamington & Chatham for 20 Plus Years before he sold the business.

His son, David Foster re-established The Abbey brand in 2014 after a 25 year career in residential, Institutional & commercial architectural & structural design and has been in and around the clothing industry since the 1970's.

How time goes by, the boss on the right and David on the left is sporting a Grampa Shirt by Applebee Shirts from Toronto.

Fast forward 47 years and David is sporting a Suit and a Dress Shirt by Canada's leading designers. 

David is proud to bring The Abbey brand back to the forefront of the Men’s Fashion industry with our well-established vendors and applying his design knowledge to your fashion needs.

The Abbey & David Foster prize comfort and superior men's clothing over throw-away fashion.
