Any place that has an entire second floor just for tailoring needs has got to be good. This mini-department store is focused on men’s contemporary clothing and suiting. For weekends and casual nights out, AG and 7 For All Mankind jeans, Houston-based Hamilton Shirts (Simon Doonan’s favorite), and rock-and-roll John Varvatos jackets can turn any average guy into a sharp-dressed man. Dressier occasions call for a visit to the in-store Zegna boutique, where a wide selection of Italian-made suits awaits. A visit to the informative web site gives readers insight into commonly asked questions, such as the correct way to launder a men’s shirts to rules of clothing etiquette.
