A city renowned for its excellent array of tailors and fashion boutiques, Shanghai has plenty to offer the sartorially savvy gent. We round up the top shops for men – here’s looking at you, handsome.
Put a spring in your step with a pair of handmade boots from Jack Peng. With 15 years in the game, these expert cobblers meticulously craft bespoke and readymade footwear from the finest European leathers. Service is quick and efficient, making this is a top-notch choice for a time-pressed man about town.
Specialising in sharp, modish suits, SuitSupply is a smart outfitter of high-end tailoring. Fashion-forward collections regularly feature statement pieces; don’t miss the suave range of belts, shoes and leather accessories that champion luxury materials either. A custom-made two-piece will take around two months to create, but it’s well worth the wait.
Now a global brand repping modern Sino style, Shanghai Tang is a top choice for debonair gents. Offering ready-to-wear threads and accessories, this is the biz and celebrity go-to for clean-cut contemporary fashion. Key pieces often sell out fast; buy when you spy.
Join the ranks of the cool kids and get fitted out at Triple Major. This design emporium features original, clean cut and edgy collections by emerging designers and upcoming brands; the ideal antidote to big-name fashion labels. There’s also a decent range of accessories, stationery and homeware on offer.
Shelving the likes of Rag & Bone, Creep, Adidas Originals and Isaora, Project Aegis is a one-stop shop for contemporary global designers. Its artfully distressed interior and boutique vibe create a relaxed, modish experience; an onsite coffee shop offers mid-retail refuelling. Shop to it!
