Finely tailored men’s slacks, dress shirts, jackets, and suits are the specialty of this word-class retailer. The climate is set by extravagant marble and mahogany fixtures, while a bountiful array of doting salespeople help you navigate through the fine European import fabrics.
Browse the ready-to-wear sportswear and formal attire by luxury-lifestyle purveyors like Hugo Boss, Burberry, Ferragamo, Gucci, and Zegna. A smaller selection of women’s wear can also be found, with highlights including coveted designers Badgley Mischka, Narciso Rodriguez, Piazza Sempione, and Zac Posen.
Stop at the in-store café for a shot of espresso or even better, a martini, in between fittings, or if you’re not fully loaded, just stroll through the store to see how the other half lives.
