    I can certainly recommend Zum Jockey Club (Tegetthoffstrasse in the first district), Schuhmann (Palais Ferstl, Herrengasse / Freyung in the first district), and the like.
    You can buy PRL, Barbour, Burberry etc in "Steffl" on Kärntner Straße (first district).

    could you please detail your addresses? give some web links or street addresses? thx. M.

    Being a totally convinced Austrophile I love Vienna. I always go to Knize and it is a bit mausoleum like but hell you could say that about the whole city. This great imperial metropolis with the Hofburg, Ring and magnificent public buildings now presiding over a country with about ten million people. It's slight melancholy is part of its charm. I can never remember the names of all the menswear stores I visit and there are plenty on the Kartnerstrasse and in the Graben. Someone above mentioned cufflinks and he's right they have fanastic (and fantasically expensive ones) in the art deco style. I bought a pair from there years ago, very nice. Of course one of the best movies ever made was filmed there. The Third Man. A final comment about Austrian sartorialism. Before the first world war their army had the best looking uniforms. In fact a lot of military wear that's still around has its origins in the Austro Hungarian military. For those interested in such stuff visit the military museum at the Arsenal, it's the second best in the world after the Invalides in Paris.

    Hello, all you gentlemen who love Vienna,
    For anyone interested in perfect bespoke hats, you MUST look up Szasz-hats at Mariahilferstrasse 4-6.
    To see this workshop that´s more like a museum of imperial workmanship, with all th old steam-presses and wooden and iron forms, (They are being used!) is an experience in itself.
    But the handmade hats are of an unheard-of perfection that I could not find anywhere else. Expensive - but worth every cent!!

    Maybe the best address in Vienna.
    MTM and RTW clothes, shoes and all kind of accessories.

    Yes... I got my cashmere hat at Knize when I realized my ears were about to freeze off...

    Vienna is my favorite city. I wish I could live there. Then I would be a MannBaerSchwein...

    Vienna is a very livable city. As much as I like Paris, I prefer Vienna overall.

    Are you sure that the bespoke suits at Netousek starts at 1000 €? I thought that they start at 2000 € + cloth or something like that.

    Sakko means "jacket", not suit - and they offer mtm, too.

    When I lived in Vienna eons ago Knize was exclusively a tailor for custom made suits etc. Mr. Knize divided his time between there and his New York emporium.

    OT, but I had many great meals at the Gosser Keller a block from the opera house. Baked carp in a crisp crust with potato salad and wein-kraut. Anybody know if it's still there?

    Also Demel's for afternoon coffee and pastry...

    I will Vienna, as well as Bratislava (Slovakia) in March. Can anyone else add to the recommendations already posted above?

    Also, at the risk of sounding repetitive, I take it there are no places in Vienna that you can purchase St Crispin's?
