my favorites are all the jean-paul gaultier and philippe dubuc stuff, but they also have more classic stuff like nicole farhi, theory,hugo boss, etc. they sell this italian line rare that is really cool and i've seen it only in europe and la. they also have a wide selection of bathing suits like d&g, parke & ronen and birdwell.
in boston you have all the foreign students that dress up, plus the all gay guys that follow market from their shop in provincetown. i'd say that guys from 20-50 can shop there.
the staff is quite helpful, very knowledgeable and friendly. i get phone calls when new stuff i like comes in,plus hand written notes. they don't seem to be on comission or that is not the vibe i get.
the decor is simple and clean, so easy to look around and shop. the racks are not overstuffed or messy. they have great art work hanging on the walls. the displays are neat too. the dressing rooms are big enough with very long curtains.

one of the few men's only shops in boston. great selection of european and american designers showcased in a clean and easy to shop environment. they do great displays too, with really interesting high-low kitsch props mixed with some pricey duds. many labels that i've only seen at this shop and i travel (and shop) a lot! - ALMOST CERTAIN IT'S CLOSED
