    Great picks!

    I would add: George Greene, Chicago

    Perhaps we could start some sort of a directory.

    The Kiton boutique in NYC is really something special. I think it was the Bank of Napoli offices for many years.

    I'll put in a good word for Franco's. Nice folks, always helpful, and never a hard sell.

    No D. Vacca in NYC or D. Spano?

    I never been to either one... but, I would love to check out Vacca and see Attolini...

    My favorite stores: Nordstrom, Saks, NM.....

    If you are in Jersey; check out Vero Uomo; Wow. what a damn good store; yes, sometimes very pricey... Another good one is SAMS in Roseland, NJ; have Italo Ferretti ties....... Ahhh, I need to go back.

    I almost always drop by Swaine Adeney, Edward Green, Crockett & Jones when I am in London (just noticed I have a leather fetish).

    Swaine Adeney is wonderful...bought a nice umbrella there but someone stole it when I placed it in the umbrella jar at the Milan Loro Piana store just a week later. I was heartbroken because it had a screw-off handle for traveling ease. It was also expensive. I keep my stuff with me at all times now even if the Italians are picky about umbrellas in businesses. A cultural thing...
