2004 Best Men's Clothing, West

Mr. Sid

Some men say they hate to shop. They’d change their minds at Mr. Sid, where an exceptional selection of fine menswear from around the globe put to shame the backwards-cap-wearing, saggy, baggy jeans culture. This shop has a full stable of designer collections (Zegna, Canali, Hugo Boss, and Armani Collezioni, to name a few) in a wonderfully inviting atmosphere: a living room-style showroom with personal sales consultants and master tailoring, not to mention wine and billiards. With all this, how can those men keep pretending?
