How long ago did you use Paul Cicchini? Â The old man is no longer there, and I'm not sure I can recommend them, although they were once great. Claymore is okay for MTM suits (Polo, Oxxford, etc.). Â A great option if you want to go MTM is Carl Sterr in Birmingham who carries Samuelsohn, Brioni, and Borrelli, and whose on-staff tailor, Walter, is wonderful. Â If your friend wants to go bespoke, there are options available, e-mail me. As far as great mens stores go, there is an admitted dearth of shops in the Detroit area, but there are a few small bright spots such as Sterr and my other "secret" spots. Â
BTW, a potential reason to avoid Cicchini, is that they have the worst store window displays I have ever seen at any store in any city in my life. These horrendous windows are eclipsed in vulgarity only by a store in a dilapidated building in downtown Detroit that I used to drive by called "GQ Menswear". They're so bad they're funny.
