The best little men's shop in the best little city in Texas.
Name: STAG Provisions for Men
Location: 1423 South Congress Ave., Austin, Texas; 512-373-7824
Why You'll Love It: Although it's a favorite stop for sartorially minded visitors during SXSW, this three-year-old store is also pure Austin—its walls are adorned with both bowie knives and Bowie albums, and its wing tips are from Frye. Call it Urbane Cowboy.
Stock Watch: A great selection of workwear and casual-modern preppy staples from both cosmopolitan collections (New York's Burkman Bros, Universal Works UK from England, Sweden's Dunderdon) and artisanal American designers (like Nashville's Imogene + Willie ), plus a wide array of accessories, shoes, grooming products, and collectible ephemera.
Must-Haves:Kinney sunglasses by Garrett Leight, Hitsman gingham tie, Universal Works reefer jacket.
