Along the lines of "Brioni for Wilkes Bashford."

Can anyone think of others? Besides Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman etc.

Oh, how could I forget Holt's! I was just at one in Canada.

Harry Rosen is another one.

What's the point of this exercise? Pretty much all men's stores and department stores carry "X for Y" lines, with higher-end stores carrying higher-end manufacturers.

Is there some sort of benefit to be realized by trying exhaustively to catalog each one? Why not just make a list of high-end men's shops in North America (if you really feel that such a list is beneficial), and reasonably assume all of them do it?

Because eBay saved searches are fun, and a lot of those types of stores have unique stuff

Definitely Maus & Hoffman (I'd call it the Wilkes-Basford of South FL--they have Brioni ["Brioni for Maus and Hoffman"], Oxxford, Ferragamo, Edward Green, etc...) Also Ben Silver.

Paul Stuart doesn't attribute, if I am correct.
It is above that sort of thing. But try to find
the same Samuelsohn model that Paul Stuart
sells at your local Samuelsohn retailer. It is
rare. Paul Stuart promotes "exclusive" models
and doesn't really mention the manufacturers.
Two years ago I tried on an extremely expensive,
'$6000+ suit at PS. Beautiful suit. The jacket
fit me perfectly. The salesman assured me that it was
made by Isaia. Probably true, but I could never find the model
at Isaia retailers in SanFrancisco.

You sound exhilarating.
