    You're going to have a great time! I've been to Vienna quite a bit, and there's a lot of decent places to shop. Hours are tight and the exchange rate sucks, but I always find quality gear there. Here's what I would recommend:

    Park (Mondscheingasse 20, 5th District)
    www.park.co.at
    tel. +43 (0)1 5264414
    A two-level concept store with lots of designer merchandise (Martin Margiela, Raf Simons) and a good collection of classics (Barbour, Fred Perry).

    Chegini
    1., Plankengasse 4
    In the first district and a bit hard to find. Great selection of Dior, Dolce, Rick Owens, and some other high-end stuff.

    Kärntner Strasse, Graben and Kohlmarkt
    These three streets are like the 5th Avenue of Vienna. All the Gucci's, Prada's, Louis Vuitton's, and the like are here. There are also some excellent boutiques for shoes and leather goods.

    Naschmarkt
    This is a flea market on the weekends. I believe that it starts at 8AM on Saturday and Sunday. Most of it is crap, but every now and then you'll find an amazing vintage watch or mid-century lamp. It's worth checking out, and is an experience onto itself.

    Leica Shop
    http://www.leicashop.com/
    Westbahnstrasse 40, 7th District
    Not sure if you're into cameras, but this is one of the best shops in the world. They've got an unbelievably large selection of classic and rare equipment.

    Have fun!

    It starts at 6.30AM and earlier. It takes place only on Saturday. A experience you shouldn't miss. After bargain hunting and thrifting you can have excellent food from all over the world. Don't miss the Gulasch in "Zum eisernen Mann" or fish at "Umar's"... In the City you have a nice flea market "Am Hof"(Antiques). March - December, Friday and Saturday 10AM - 8PM

    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).

    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!!

    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.
