ITT: We recommend... if you like brand X, you might try brand Y.

Pretty self-explanatory, I think.

I'll go first:

If you like Wings+Horns, you should try:
European Culture - great for basics - a real emphasis on jerseys and dyeing techniques. I've been told that they do a great deal of textiles research. Um, fits are slim, slimmer than Wings+Horns, so plan accordingly.
Master Coat - slightly more aggressive than usual outerwear, things like fleece cardigans and jackets in slightly slim fits.
and Barena (cardigan style and other unstructured jackets)

If you want a "basics wardrobe", you should try the newly revitalized SBU (Strategic business concepts.) The Tres Bien Shop buy has essentially that.

If you like Carpe Diem boots and leather shirts, you should try Jun Hashimoto (0)

If you like Visvim and P.A.M you should try 'White Mountaineering'

If you like Carpe Diem you should try Guidi as a cheaper alternative and CLOSE to as good of quality.

If you like Jil Sander knits, you might try Annapurna, or 5+1 Annapurna.

In general, you'd think that with the direction a lot of you skinnier guys are going (semi-goth ninja) that there would be a groundswell for Nuur, which uses fabrics that are better than Rick Owens, Damir Doma, wjk, etc...

Italy. There are a few shops in Milan. But... um, either Yoox for off season or www.antonioli.com for in season stuff. The fabrics are really terrific. Fits are extremely slim though. A size 50Eu fits more like a 38US.

I would also think that since people on the forum are pretty big proponents of what might be called the "Opening Ceremony" look (Patrick Ervell, Stephan Schneider, Opening Ceremony, Barbour Tokito, Sabatino, Nigel Cabourn, etc...) that people might be more into Mauro Grifoni, a reasonably sized brand in Italy with essentially no representation in the US.

Bumping for more recommendations.

Also, that link should have been antonioli.eu

Gonna crosspost from RFT and add Mads Nørgaard to this list for an even more budget option.

Just snagged a Nuur jacket from the internets. If it works out I'll slather the brand with e-hype

I think that you will like it.

If you like Isaora, you may like Herno, which does a lot of more fashion oriented shapes in performance (or, performance like) materials. I think that Neil Barrett also recently did a collaboration with Herno.

It's not bad at all. I have a steel/cotton jacket I'm wearing right now, very slouchy deconstructed look to it. Great with painted gats and black coated denim now...

Good rec although the stuff I've seen wasn't very Jil-esque.

I'd recommend that Raf Simons fans check out Ute Ploier.
