So people here will give you their favorites out of the narrow sample they have seen or based on some common stereotypes. This means you will get plenty of "New York" answers, because of the large group of Americans on this board. In addition there are many "London" suggestions, because everyone knows Savile Row and Jermyn Street. You will hear Milan and Tokyo and finally Hong Kong may be on the list, because people here know WW Chan who happens to be located in HK.

I will not say that any of these answers are wrong (even though my observation is that the average man in Paris is dressed better than the average Londoner despite the great makers and stores in London). What you might want to think about is, however, if you really wanna write the 100th report on men's style in New York or the 1000th article on the big names on Savile Row or shopping in Milan. Do rather something interesting - pick some cities which are a (little bit) less known despite being sophisticated and "stylish". Some examples in Europe could be Madrid, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Naples, Florence, Vienna, Munich, Stockholm. Or look at what is going on in Shanghai, the former home of the 'red gang'. I am sure are many interesting places in other regions like Latin America, South Asia, etc.

this ^^^^ + a vote for Buenos Ares - the Paris of South America

In my opinion there is little competition for London, New York and Milan if what you are asking is a combination of well dressed men in the most stylish locations, as opposed to the badly dressed men on the streeets of any city in the world, and for shopping.

Naples is a great place to have clothes made but the local dress is not particularly stylish once you exit Rubinacci. Paris has great fashion, but well dressed Parisian men go to London for their clothes. Hong Kong copies London, and sometimes Italy, and so does Tokyo though it also has some vibrant fashion.

If the list extended to five I would probably add Madrid and Vienna.

Well, we're definitely considering manufacture. I think that, for example, is largely the basis of Chicago's argument, being the home of Oxxford, Optimo, Horween etc.

Not HKG.. PERIOD..

Other than The Armoury & some tailors..

Other than the few remaining SF iTriads..

It really is only a designer brand obsessed culture - preferably black clothing..

I can't believe some of the things I am hearing in the thread... Of course I am baised, but I think New York tops them all. I really like what Will has said. But in my opinion in New York you could walk two blocks over and find yourself in a completely different world architecurally and style-wise. I feel like the style is as diverse as its neighborhoods. There is still some of the old school prep, high fashion, punk, hipster, CBD, GMS all of it.

I was in Albuquerque once when I was in college and it blew my mind. I felt like I was in a different world. I definitely stuck out like a sore thumb too. If you want people wearing white, terracotta, and teal to stare at you get off an airplane in Albuquerque wearing a black Dior suit.

Agree with New York & Milan but Venice ?? Venice is full of well dressed visitors from all over the world rather then the indigenous so for that reason i say London not Venice.

One of the must do's before you die stay at the Cipriani in Venice its simply wonderful.
