NYC clothing for the Gentleman of Leisure
September 10, 2013 7:01 PM Subscribe
We will be coming to New York City over Columbus Day weekend and I find myself with some free time to do some shopping. I would like to know about a) men's online retailers with a brick-and-mortar NYC presence and b) your finest vintage shops.

As a gentleman of leisure and distinguished taste (and relatively unusual size) I would like to use our upcoming trip to the city as an opportunity to size myself for the many online retailers purveying their wares to such dapper gents as myself. Many of these shops have flagship stores in the more major metropolitan areas, and I would like to seek these places out to find the proper sizes I require for their clothing. Can you identify men's clothiers that:
-have a major online presence (as in, most or all of their stock is available for purchase on the Internet)
-have a retail store in New York
-preferably have someone around who will take measurements and provide sizing advice
I am looking specifically for suits, blazers, button-down shirts, and trousers with a relatively traditional cut (not too fashion-forward/skinny/etc).
I would also like to know where to find vintage/used stores selling same. I have been to Ina on Prince St. and found a wonderful suit there last time but found most of their stock too trendy for my tastes. Think tweeds and high-waisted pants. More interested in suits, jackets, formal wear, and accessories from vintage retailers.
