    I was looking at the men's fashion folder in my bookmark manager, and I thought that it could prove useful to others to have a list of various men's fashion web sites. I copied my folder into this post. This is hardly an all inclusive list. For instance, there are no Savile Row tailors here. It would be great to hear from fellow members on what fashion sites they peruse.

    This is great. I'm going to pin it, and hopefully add a few more in the next couple of days.

    Andy, wow. This is a remarkable list. You've expanded my horizons greatly. The Classico Italia site is a great resource for Italian fashion URLs. I especially appreciated all of the new (to me) shoe sites. A great discovery for me was through the French shoe web sites you listed. Apparently there exists a bi-monthly French magazine called "Trepointes," which is devoted to high-end men's dress shoes. I will definitely subscribe.

    If you figure out how to get a subscription to Trepointes please let me know - I would like one as well.

    if you go to google.fr (france), there is a website but it does not seem to work (it may be down though): www.trepointes.presse.fr i did find some added information in that for subscription information on the magazine, you can email to: trepointes@mkentreprises.com if you go to www.souliers.net, (which appears to be more of a blog than a site) there are some articles from trespointes and pics from the magazine and some covers (not all that great though)

    thank you mr. harris for the info. i admit i can be a bit of a francophile sometimes. i looked at the la botte website and i like these shoes. does anyone have info on this company? what kind of construction would you expect? i wear an 8 1/2 and am tempted though i really must buy christmas presents for others first. edit: i also like a pair i saw on the heschung site. do you know if they are sold in the u.s. or of a website that carries them?

    Fratelli Rossetti is a highly respected Italian manufacturer (nothing Francophile here): http://www.rossetti.it The shoes are probably Blake stitched (although a small section of Rosetti's output is Goodyear-welted)

    thank you bengal-stripe, i figured the shoes were italian. i meant that i only looked at that website "la botte" because the name was in french.
    btw, here is another case where i've become interested in a brand only to find that it will be difficult, if not imposssible, to find it in l.a. yet according to their website, they have their own store in new york. does every maker of everything have a store in new york? this i have to see.

    I'm curious - how did you find John's site?? And to the rest of you - read it. He's a good writer and has some good advice. Except for the part about not buying on ebay [​IMG]

    Yes, it's a good website, especially for beginners like me. I skimmed through it just after BjornH posted it. This is one info I found interesting:


    "Ralph Lauren Purple Label - Purple Label suits and sport jackets are no longer made by Chester Barrie in England, but St. Andrew's in Italy. (Ironic, no?, that the "English look" is now better done by Italians.)"

    A.Harris, that was an extensive list.

    I have a question regarding your auctions though: you list some "Sartoria" trousers and claim that they are comparable to the top-of-the-line Incotex "Satoriale". How do you come about that comparison?? I own several Incotex "Satoriale" and from your images, the pants don't compare - i.e yours does not have the curtained waistband, nor the handstitching at the pockets, fly, waistband,etc? The only thing I see that is similar is the multiple buttons at the waistband (the V-split too but that is also a feature of Incotex's Formal line), and the sealed pocket.

    Thank you - hope you can waste some time on these sites as I did. I just happened on to them with extensive googling on slow evenings. Erickson's site is a joy to read, it's full of information and the best is that his passion for clothes (and food) really shines through his writing.

    Great HOF topic . BH

    The pants I am selling do have picking at the fly, pockets etc. It is done by machine but I believe that Incotex does their's by machine as well - I have a booklet here from Incotex detailing the differences between the "Sartoriale", the "Formale" and the "Informale" lines. It does not claim hand-picking as a feature of the Sartoriale line. In my experience, short of Kiton, Brioni and the like, all the picking you see on good trousers is done by machine.

    You are right about the curtained waistband. Perhaps I was in error in claiming equivalency to Incotex Sartoriale. On the other hand, these trousers are low-rise and slim and I'm not sure that a curtained waistband would be beneficial. Also, they are casual trousers and it is rare to see this level of detail in casual-wear. In any event, they are very nice and are at least close in quality to Incotex Sartoriale.
