2016 Best Men's Clothing, Occasion


Chinos have their charm, but when the occasion calls for something dignified, Dapper Dans make a beeline to Drinkwater’s. Owner Gary Drinkwater, formerly of Louis Boston and Stonestreet’s, presides over a small but expertly curated collection of modern classics: made-to-measure suits from Samuelsohn, custom button-downs from Individualized Shirts, and footwear from legendary French cordonnier Paraboot.

Correction, June 28, 2016, 4:30 p.m.: This post has been updated to reflect that Drinkwater’s carries custom button-downs from Individualized Shirts, not custom shirts from Engineered Garments. We regret the error.
