LONDON

The British capital is considered to be the international hub of bespoke fashion and its main thoroughfare, Savile Row, has undoubtedly become synonymous with the tradition of bespoke tailoring. One walk along Savile Row and you will see a host of world-famous houses, catering to some of the most influential men. The likes of Joseph, Hardy Amies (remember Amies’ A to Z guide of men’s fashion?), Huntsman, and Richard Anderson line the street. However, enjoying pride of place at numero uno at Savile Row is the historic Gieves & Hawkes. Its imposing white building boasts a heritage that dates back to 1771. Today, the client list of Gieves & Hawkes reads like a who’s who of international society. Customers come here to enjoy the brand’s signature experience which includes high armholes, structured shoulders, double-pleated trousers, and double-breasted construction. While you’re at it, shop from a special accessories section curated by Ettinger accessories, which can be personalized on purchase.

MILAN

Hailed as the fashion capital of the world, Milan is famous for its high-quality menswear offering. As you amble past the ritzy boutiques of Milan’s luxury district, Via Monte Napoleone, you will realize just how seriously the men here take their fashion. A host of legendary Italian names like Armani, Lanieri, Canali, Dolce & Gabbana and Sartoria A. Caraceni come to mind. If you are after a sharp Italian bespoke suit, head for a local favorite brand, Boggi Milano. This exquisite outlet that started off in 1939 as a humble tailor for Milanese men is now a fashion behemoth. Here at Boggi Milano, you can enjoy its custom suit service, which is referred to as Su Misura (tailored). Boggi Milano works with a select set of Italian fabric producers to create typical Italian silhouettes. These suits are well-fitted, feature relatively more unstructured shoulders and pockets minus flaps. They have high buttons and the trousers are usually tight on the hip as well.
