A shop for Euro-fashionistas. The mostly Italian fashion labels sold are pricey and stylish: Brioni, Zanella, Palzileria, Belvest, Esteano Ricci, Bruno Magli, Blumarine and Versace. Their on-site tailors hand measure and send the specs off to Italy where the suits are made.
Go for the ties alone--the brightly colored selection, including many by Versace, is a welcome change from some of the more staid options available elsewhere. The menswear collection is larger than the women's, with a large selection of pants, shirts, sweaters and shoes with European flair. The women's collection is highly desirable, with price tags to match. There's a good selection of the gorgeous French label Blumarine. There are 60 different shoe designers represented, including leather boots. To further serve well-heeled Europhiles, A Taghi has recently added a sideline in European antiques and rugs, so you can outfit your home as well as your body with their Continental treats.
