Julius Simon was a high-end Canadian brand operating out of Toronto.
From 'Couture & Commerce: The Transatlantic Fashion Trade in the 1950s by Alexandra Palmer for the Royal Ontario Museum:
"Julius Simon had two shops that sold couture and high-end ready-to-wear as well. The first, the midtown branch, opened in 1934 on Bay Street, moved to Yonge Street in 1938, reappeared in 1934 on Bloor Street, and moved across the road in 1954. A second store opened in 1958 on Lawrence Avenue, in the north end of the city."
