    In Frankfurt, you have to add Milano on Fressgasse to the list. Beautiful ties, socks, cufflinks, belts, scarves. Truly beautiful stuff.

    This is one of the shops which is known as Andrew's ties all around the world - they went for a different name in Germany for some reason...

    Rake on Duke Street.

    I was served by two people in there: Clive (owner) and Andrew. Both great guys, range is small, but damn good. 20 second walk from Thom Sweeney.
    Also, I'm delighted Drake's has been mentioned. Easily my favourite accessories shop.

    Hmmm ... Boggi, Sor, Cove and Eckerle do not really meet the qualification of "small, independent mens shops" with Boggi being an international chain and Sor having 60 stores in Germany. Cove and Eckerle are smaller companies, but each still have 11 locations.

    I will be in Chicago next week and i will try to drop by all these places...to my wife's chagrin. Are all these accessible via public transportation? The last time I was in Chicago I had a car although we will probably take a train there from MI.

    East Lansing, MI
    -?

    I will let you guys know if/when I find someone NOT wearing Red Wing or camo gear...

    assuming from Union Station, then yes. You may want to plan and group your visit. PStuart, George Green, Ralph Lauren are within the same vicinity (Mag mile/Oak street area). Syd Jerome is in the Loop area while Haberdash flagship is in South Loop. They also have a couple of smaller locations west of Mag mile...Morris and Sons is also a good stop (South Loop)

    Have fun

    Unless I'm missing them in the summary, I'm surprised by the lack of NOLA listings here. I only travel there once in awhile, but George Bass is one of the most beautiful menswear shops I've ever seen. It's a small shop of impeccable quality. They're incredibly friendly, informative and generous with conversation and restaurant recommendations.

    And Rubensteins's is the definition of a classic American menswear store. Have an Abita while you shop.

    While not a full menswear shop, even if you don't wear hats, if you don't at least pay a visit to Meyer the Hatter for the conversation, you're missing out on one of the true old-school New Orleans institutions.

    The great thing is that these three very different stores are within a block of each other.

    Thanks for the heads up Gary. I'll be down in NO in April so I'll be sure to make time to visit these shops.

    South of San Francisco is Carmel and home of one of the best specialty menswear stores in the US, Khaki's of Carmel. I wish they would open a store in SF.

    Add Carson Street Clothiers and NMWA to NYC. Those two places, along with the aforementioned Epaulet and The Armoury, account for the vast majority of my recent clothing purchases.
