    *sigh* again with Monocole... We don't care what he would say, the OP is asking your opinion.

    I'll throw in with Vienna as well. Its European, conservative, four distinct seasons, and opera/theatre/ball culture together constitute a great recipe for a well-dressed populace.

    Vienna ball season is a kind of amazing idea. I would love to cover that.

    1) Xilinhot, Inner Mongolia.
    2) Hohhot, Inner Mongolia.
    3) Ordos, Inner Mongolia.

    All very stylish IMO.

    I like this idea.

    Of that list I'd go with Vienna and Stockholm (though I've never been to Munich, Shanghai or to my shame Naples), plus somewhere in Italy.

    I go on holiday to Italy often, mainly to the countryside, but I am amazed at the level of style even in small provincial towns: the sort of places whose equivalent in other countries would be completely devoid style. But in Italy you'll find a nice menswear shop or two, and locals who wear jackets and ties to restaurants. And look good in them. The average Italian just has an attitude toward their clothes and their appearance unlike any other - just think of the passeggiata, which seems in part at least an excuse to show off your finery to your neighbours. You don't get that everywhere.

    So many to choose from in Italy...Firenze/Lucca/Milano/Asolo/Treviso/Venezia/Roma - and that's just the north.

    Seville in Spain is worth mentioning, not world top three, but definitely a city which has its own style and very high standards of dress.

    While I wouldn't necessarily call it one of the greatest "style cities" for men in the world, Hong Kong is without a doubt in my mind the greatest city for menswear in general. I really do hope you make it there eventually... preferably in the near future!

    If you want a stylish city in North America that isn't NYC, you could do a lot worse than Montreal.
