Classic Mens Shops - A List - Page 4

post #46 of 97
Hahner is opposite the Alte Oper. But I strongly recommend Cove, next to the Frankfurter Hof hotel. Eckerle on the Zeil, Sør at Kaiserstrasse 3, and Abaci at Junghofstrasse 14 are also excellent.

Actually, don't miss Cove if you can help it.

Edit: Ansons is also good, but not unique to Frankfurt. You've probably got one in Munich already.

I'm quite surprised that The Hound is mentioned for consideration on anyones list of the top classic menswear specialty stores. It used to be one of the greats in SF, but they lost their mojo 20 years ago. The place is a mess and has a lot of old inventory. As of a month or so ago they no longer fully stocked Barbour.

For this list, I'll say:

 

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Given the options for trad or trad-derived clothing in the Bay Area, the hound remains worthy of consideration.
I have to admit that the last suit I purchased there was over 20 years ago ...and it had side vents. I certainly would
put it ahead of Cable Car. And Brooks abandoned the Ivy paradigm several owners ago. What this town needs
is a Paul Stuart. But it ain't gonna happen.

Some help to populate the London section. I am not sure if any shop on Jermyn can be considered as a pure gentlemen's store on its own (New and Lingwood certainly is close), but the whole street altogether is one big shop.

 

London, United Kingdom

  • Jermyn Street, and Surrounding streets (in no particular order)
    • Brands -- DAKS, TM Lewin, Hackett
    • Misc. -- Geo F. Trumper (Hairdressers and Products), J. Floris (Fragrances), Taylor of Old Bond Street
    • New and Lingwood, remember to check out the shoe gallery on the second
    • Shoes -- John Lobb, Edward Green, Church's, Foster and Sons, C&J, Trickers, JM Weston, Barker, Cheaney
    • Shirtmakers -- Turnbull and Asser, Hilditch and Key, Emma Willis
  • The Royal Arcade for Cleverley's and a bespoke glasses shop
  • Trunk Clothier's
  • Albam
  • Liberty's Menswear Basement

Any experience with Chrome in Soma? I had a friend mention this store to me but can't find it online. Any ideas?

Chicago, IL

It is just "Haberdash," not haberdashery.

Never heard of it. The web refers to a Chrome messenger bag company in SOMA.
It would be a bit odd for a tailored clothing retailer to locate SOMA.There are
several in the Mission and other him outlying areas, but they are not mainstream AFAIK.
