tailored clothing: Kiton then Oxxford
casual slacks: Bernard Zin
Shirts: My Tailor
Ties: Talbott (I know, but I love the knot they tie)

Add Penhaligons for fragrance as well.

Add Gillette pre-cartridge. Old Gillette razors that use the double edge razor blades rock. I have one 60 years old and one 100 years old and they both look and function like new.

Muehle for Shaving/Grooming as well as Kent.....the interesting thing is Edwin Jagger and Muehle are exactly the same thing, the difference is Muehle is a much older namesake (believe EJ was started sometime in the 80s) and Muehle is German while EJ is British, that and EJ has a more classic look wheras Muehle is more modern....throw Merkur in there and that is a wrap.

Also since someone mentioned cookware I would throw in caphalon and Henckles pro S...cheaper than either Wusthof and All Clad and IMHO work just as well, just not as pretty.

Even cheaper if you buy seconds from their Ebay store. I usually can't find the flaw. When I can, it's something like an unusual knot in the wood or a few errant bristles.

Wish I could afford more pieces, but the suit and shirt that I have are amazing. Always get compliments. Wore the suit to my wedding.

Some of the others I like:
MUJI
Finamore
Uniglo
Barba
Borrelli
Incotex
Yohji Yamamoto
Arguably Apple

I'm surprised that no one's mentioned good ol' (Italian) Polo RL. Obviously not quite as well made as RLPL, but with a shapely cut (I often size down for best results), wonderfully soft and bold fabrics (more interesting than most RLPL), and just the right dash of unapologetic anachronism (although I could do without the suede elbow patches). No other RTW line is so well-attuned to the Apparel Arts aesthetic that inspire many of us; worn with a little worldy wit (i.e. don't wear a damned fedora, but do wear bright socks!), it's classic without being cartoonish. Plus it's easy to find on the cheap. I've picked up literally dozens of beautiful Polo suits for the price of a couple topline bespoke, and frankly, I think many of them look better on me than a lot of guys' bespoke looks on them.
