Shopping in the DC area

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I'm a Styleforum Neophyte from the DC area, although I do consider myself a bit better educated on sartorial matters than most of my peers.  The next time that I go home, I'll have turned 18, and I'm looking to buy some new pieces for my wardrobe.  While my father and I--the latter sadly only for a brief period of time-- were patrons of James in Galleria, the store's closing has left me picking out pieces at Neimans and Saks.  Would anyone be able to recommend a quality menswear boutique in the area?

William Fox and Co at 15th and G - Drakes ties, Hilditch and Key shirts, Samuelsohn suits OTR and MTM. I've been working with Ryan on MTM in a model they don't usually carry, and the customer service has been great. Very attentive to detail.



Sky Valet for shoes - Alden, Crockett and Jones, Loake, Allen Edmonds, some Edward Green, and soon Carmina. 


Depending what you're after and whether there's a sale on, the Ralph Lauren stores in Georgetown and Friendship Heights both have knowledgable sales associates whom I've found quite helpful.


Places for casual stuff depend entirely on your style.

What's a Sammy MTM go for at Fox?

Best to call them and ask, but for a Gable model in a basic fabric I think you're looking at about $1,200-$1,400 or so. But since that's not my situation, I'm mostly guessing here and you should email or call them directly to find out. I wouldn't want to mislead you or put them in an awkward position because the price is different from what I'm guessing.

I'd second the wm fox recommendation. They have only quality stuff and are good people.

These are great recommendations. Does anyone know a good tailor? I've got a Mackintosh I'd like to have the sleeves shortened on. Thanks.

William Field is not cheap, but his work is outstanding.
