http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120516.html Eau de Rochas Homme is a good one for what you describe.
There are other alteration tailors closer to Pittsburgh proper--Butler is 1 hour north on 279/79, but is an easy drive. I use them because Frank has made 1 suit, 1 blazer, trousers, and about 40 shirts for me, all successfully, and has let out many of the jackets once my overarm measurement grew from weightlifting. Prices are reasonable; they're open on Saturday as well from 9:30 to 3:30 PM. Call them if you want to set up an appointment:...
Pittsburgh Area: Frank Cicco and sons 133 W. North Street Butler, PA Custom and MTM suits, custom overcoats, MTM shirts, men's and women's alterations.

Does anyone who lives in or near Pittsburgh have a dry cleaner that they would recommend for suits? I have a few fully canvassed suits that I'd rather not entrust to just anyone-- any suggestions?
ace195: If you're not dead set on north of the city, you may want to look at the South Hills areas as well (family-oriented, not much nightlife at all). What are you looking for?
My tailor swears by Mario at Sewickley shoe repair. That's not Pittsburgh proper, but it is a fairly easy drive: 447 Beaver Street Sewickley, PA 15143 (412) 741-5800 I have not used this myself, but I've seen his work, and am convinced he knows what he is doing. He can do full-sole replacements, not just half.
Hey, Terrible Towels can serve as a stylish ascot, in a pinch... I've got to give Baltimore credit, they wanted it more. Thankfully, there's a rematch later this season, and we'll have Ben back. Of course, they should have Ed Reed, so it'll be interesting.

There's a record store near me that I visit occasionally, even though I look very out of place in it (the store also sells comic books and the like, and caters to a younger crowd). It is one of the types of brick-and-mortar stores that I still like to visit.
