Whether you have a keen sense of style or would welcome help from someone whose looks are always on-point, you’ll find a spot to refresh your wardrobe and dress your best. Keep adding to your rotation of casual pieces, work clothes, and formal wear at these STL shops, from the downtown looks at DNA to tailored suits at Milano Men’s Wear to the caps at Levine Hat Co. Following, you’ll find 10 of the best men’s clothing stores in St. Louis stores filled with quality choices to um, suit your sartorial needs.
At this tiny storefront, you’ll find East + West’s carefully chosen and fairly extensive varieties of domestic and imported brands of casual wear, free of trends. The store’s own label of button-down shirts is a popular buy. If you’re in need of styling assistance, the sales also will help you find just the right piece to complete your look or highlight a particular element.
If you’ve visited a haberdasher (or know what that term means) Mister Guy is your man. This Ladue spot has been serving stylish St. Louisans for almost 40 years with its tailored suits. The team here will get you looking sharp with its varied selection of dress shoes, pocket squares, cuffl inks and sundry offerings, making your suit stand out from the rest.
Sneakerheads probably know this location by now for its variety of brands. For urban fashion, Fresh Image is stocked with just what you need: Caps, tees and kicks. Check out its smaller labels for unique takes on jeans and jackets that’ll make you get noticed for the right reasons.
True to its downtown location, DNA (“Dictate Never Accept”) offers St. Louis subtly edgy urban wear like shirts, hoodies, shoes and a lot more. The store has limited-edition collections, too, so if you see something you like, buy it—it may be gone the next time you visit.
Unlike most of the spots on this list, much of what Swedlife sells is its own brand of jackets, hats and tees. The recently relaunched store is the place to go for closely curated, highly coveted labels combining urban and skater wear. It’s not just a look, it’s a lifestyle: Get your new deck and wheels here as well as gear from brands so cool you probably never heard of them before.
If you want to up your suit game, the team at Milano Men’s Wear will help you get there. When it comes to formal clothes, they know it’s all in the details here: Custom-tailored suits, bright pocket squares, crocodile shoes. Milano specializes in big and tall, because we all know style is size-inclusive.
Some men who are big and tall might face a size cut-off. That isn’t an issue at Levin’s: They sell clothing up to size 86 in pants, 8X in shirts, and T-shirts with tags running up to 10X. The store stocks work wear to formal wear, and with so much selection, a sales associate can you help you navigate through all that style.
What makes Stallone’s stand out beyond its impeccable suiting styles is their kilt rental. The whole outfit includes a coatee and vest, wing-tip tuxedo shirt, black bow tie, sporran, belt with buckle, sgian dubn, kilt pin, hose flashes, black shoes and the choice of kilt from three tartans: Scotland’s National Tartan, Irish National Tartan and the Royal Stewart Tartan. Never plain, it’s not just plaid.
Suits at Woody’s can be made-to-measure. Using the inventory on the floor, a sales consultant takes several measurements, noting if the customer prefers a more relaxed or a trimmer fit. Woody’s then updates the suit with the customer’s notes.
Levine Hat Co. is serious about its hats. With a dozen hat styles to choose from, maybe today’s the day you’ll walk out with a vintage Cardinals cap, or a handsome velvet black outback hat, or even a fedora? The possibilities are endless here.
