Where to find perfectly crafted dress shirts, workwear, suits, military looks, and accessories

More than ever, designers are incorporating retro details into their clothes. But sometimes the easiest way to find authentic workmanship is to go directly to the source.

It isn't surprising that Mad Men's costume department pulled research pieces from this Los Feliz shop: The razor-sharp two-buttons here could pass for Don Draper's wardrobe. Owner Jonathan Harrison Kanarek will graciously guide you through his array of slim suits from the forties, fifties, and sixties by Hickey Freeman, Hart Schaffner Marx, and Brooks Brothers. Jake's also provides expert fittings, one-on-one consultations, and a stiff drink, should you need one.
