    Have you considered one of the many online vendors?

    some online vendors even take an electronic check. You can also sing-up for PayPal with a checking account and then use that to make payments. Good luck.

    Corey, I live in Hamilton (and work in Burlington) and I know of three places in Hamilton where you can buy check pants.

    There's Chris' Store Fixtures on James Street North across from Liuna Station.  I love that store and the people who run it are really nice.  I've noticed their uniforms to be a little on the pricey side but they are very good quality and I suspect they'll last much longer than something cheap you could get somewhere else.  I would call them first though just to confirm that they have checks in as their space for uniforms is very limited.  Their phone number is 905-523-5250. 

    In 2 Uniforms is up on the mountain on Concession street, a couple of blocks east of Upper Wentworth.  I grew up in that area (Upper Wentworth and Concession) and to me they're in the original Bain's store but that's long gone now.  I got my last few pairs of pants from them (because at the time I didn't realize Chris's sold uniforms) and I'm quite happy with them.  Their phone number is 905-389-5885.

    Downtown there is Bombardieri and they're located on Barton Street just west of Wentworth Street.  I've never been in there but they do carry chef uniforms and I have seen checks in their window display.  Their phone number is 905-525 6684.

    Hope this helps!

    There is a uniform place on the South Service road just west of Erin Mills Parkway - quite reasonably priced there.

    Mississauga Uniforms


    2100 South Sheridan Way, Mississauga

    I picked up a pair of checked pants in Value Village in Burlington.  There were a bunch of them that looked like they had been surplus from a restaurant or laundry company.
