Most of the posts on this blog contain recommendations on where to get the pieces I am displaying – no matter if it’s a double breasted suit, balmoral boots or boutonnières. This page here is meant as an overview.

This list is not in any way complete. You are welcome to suggest more shops and brands to me via e-mail. However, all sources need to fit my audience and me in terms of content and quality. Furthermore, I am living in Germany, so this list is dominated by sources in Germany and the rest of Europe.

I’ve also split the list into general classic menswear sources as well as explicitly vintage menswear. I do prefer sources that state where and under which circumstances the garments are produced.

Each link is marked, depending on my personal experience with the brand/shop. Positive experience are marked with an ▲ and bad ones with an ▼. If I had no experience at all, you’ll see a ○. Finally, affiliate links are marked with an *. You can read my explanation of affiliate links here.
