What are the most expensive stores for fashion and what cities can I find them? No, I am not asking for Gucci or Louis Vuitton, it would have to be more exclusive than that.

House of Bijan on Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. Appointment only for suits and they've dressed several former Presidents.

Second this. Been in the store before. The prices will knock your socks off.

Tom Ford, New York. He formally ran Gucci. If you have $13,000 for shoes, I would recommend it. Hermes is a good store too if you can afford $50,000 Birkin Bag.

Tom Ford is generally trash for the money. For example, his suits are made by Zegna. Kiton/Attolini are a little more but WAY better for the money IMO.

I like Tom Ford, but I wouldn't say he's absurdly expensive or exclusive. You can get a suit or tux for $5,000. Sunglasses MSRP for $400 but I have two pair that cost less than $200.

Fucking experienced that two days ago. Luckily I put everything on my credit card before they started threatening me so I called up my credit card company and had them cancel the charges. Rocks thrown at me and all.

Depends on the category you're looking at, I guess. Watches, handbags, jewelry, etc. will pretty much by default be more expensive than other garments and accessories.

Some that jump to mind:

  • Historic houses on Savile Row for bespoke suits along with Bijan, especially once you start adding rare fabrics, materials and custom adaptations.
  • Couture shops like Oscar de la Renta, arguably traditional the likes of Valentino and Dior before they started pandering to the social media hordes
  • Some less formal brands/ products such as visvim, CCP shoes, ...

Michael Andrews Bespoke in NYC is amazing. Not sure if you put these on par with Gucci/LV (IE, high-end designer) but Brunello Cucinelli, Loro Piana come to mind.

I just bought some jeans from Target. $27.99. They fit great and they're almost as comfortable as Paige jeans but substantially cheaper. Save money, invest.

By pure cost, Loro Piana is probably at the top. By quality of clothes, Loro Piana is towering at the top and hardly sees who is behind them. Brioni and Brunello Cucinelli are close behind and have really great things for men.

Concur with all points. I somehow lost a bunch of Brunello on a vacation recently, very upsetting
