    I second that. Also, does that mean you want the names of companies that use these manufacturers, but sell them under their own name? An example would be Isaia, for Brooks Brothers. No Isaia tag, but they still make those suits.

    Are you looking to prepare a complete, definitive list? Or just a sample, representative list (that doesn't cover every retailer -- just a sample)? If you're looking for the former, then I think you're effort here will be hopelessly futile. Your best bet, as has already been stated, is to contact each company directly (many or all of which have a US-based rep I'm sure, so you don't have to call Italy). Now that I think about it, another excellent starting point would be Steve Brinkman's book, available here: https://secure.planetlink.com/mensspecialty/special.tpl The book lists the best men's clothing stores and describes what makers are available at each (along with other info). This might be all you need.

    If all you need is the best stores in the biggest cities, then Steve's book should be perfect.

    Good luck with your thesis....
