    Wondering if anyone cares to comment on any of the old-school haberdashers that may still be around. Once placed in every town, there are fewer and fewer to be found. Websites too, are appreciated. Just curious what is out there.

    Not sure if any of these qualify as old school, but I've had good experiences at:
    (1) Garmany, Red Bank, NJ
    (2) Richard's, Greenwich, CT
    (3) Davide Cenci, NY, NY

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "old-school haberdasher." If you mean a quality independent menswear retailer, they're still around.

    I don't know if there's a list on the internet anywhere, but here are some that I have personal experience with:

    M. Penner -- Houston, TX
    Norton Ditto -- Houston, TX
    Harold's in the Heights -- Houston, TX
    George Bass -- New Orleans, LA
    Franco's -- Richmond, VA

    From what I can recall in San Francisco:
    Wilkes Bashford
    David Stephens

    edit: Courtue (sp?) a relatively cheaper priced store for Zegna, Canali, Brioni, etc.

    New Davide Cenci fall catalog just received has many items reminiscent of the mid '60s, with an Italian twist (tattersall buttondown shirts, brown herringbone polo coat, donegal tweed jackets). A good look, IMO. Based on A Harris and Cantarelli website, private label items are made by Cantarelli. They also carry St. Andrews (or did as of two years ago). Here's a link to the website version of this catalog: http://<a href="http://www.davidecen...cenci.com/</a>

    I have the largest database on these stores available. www.MensSpecialtyRetail.com. If you don't see a particular city on there, or would like an update, IM me.

    Well, yes, that was certainly a mouthful, but that's what I meant.  Perhaps &quot;tailors and furnishers&quot; wd've been a more apt way for me to have put it.
