Casual And Formalwear Aren't A Problem For Men in Dublin

The market for men’s clothing in Dublin is still floating somewhere between the classic fitted suits and tailors that one might expect of menswear and more up and coming, contemporary offerings that mirror the sort of thing you might find on the continent. While a lot of Dubliners will think immediately of family businesses such as Louis Copeland and Sons, Diffney's menswear and Kevin and Howlin as some of the stalwart tailors of the city there are more and more modern outfitters coming on the scene.

For trendy menswear and quality footwear head to Genius at the Powerscourt Centre. For quirky and interesting pieces accompanied by delicious coffee, seek out Tamp & Stitch in the west end of Temple Bar. Modern menswear in Dublin is best seen in the excellent Indigo & Cloth, with plenty of exciting European and international brands. For the luxury department store experience that so many shoppers crave head over to Ireland's flagship department store Brown Thomas, or its younger counterpart BT2. For a shopping centre that doesn't quite fit the mould make time for the Powerscourt Centre which has offerings from All Saints and French Connection in beautiful Georgian surroundings with plenty of places to stop off for a coffee or a bite to eat.
