Vienna: Mecca for the modern-day dandy

Philippe Perzi Vienna

Vienna – city of music, coffee houses, costume balls, Christmas markets but also a little known mecca for modern day dandies who aspire to dress in nothing less than impeccably tailored clothing, made by expert craftsmen and steeped in decades of tradition.

Like most European cities, Vienna does have its fair share of big name luxury labels (the new Golden Quarter boasts names such as Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci etc) and chains like H&M and Zara have inevitably infiltrated the high street, but thanks in part to Vienna’s location, at the crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe, some of the city’s smaller and family owned menswear stores have managed to fend off competition from cheaper and disposable brands. As a result, there is still a smattering of menswear stores in Vienna’s first district, who hold their traditional Viennese heritage close to their hearts and who can lay claim to outfitting some of the best dressed gentlemen in Europe. Names such as Knitze and Wilhelm Jungmann & Neffe enjoy an excellent reputation for bespoke menswear.

Philippe Perzi Vienna: A proud menswear institution

Philippe Perzi Vienna is proud to call itself one of these hallowed Viennese institutions, with our roots dating back many decades to when Johann Perzi began his tailoring apprenticeship under the watchful eye of C.M. Frank, renowned tailor to the royal families of Continental Europe. Since then, we have been providing high quality menswear that is timeless, elegant and stylish, walking the finely balanced tight-rope between tradition and modernity. Rather than waxing and waning with trends, we like to pay homage to classic masculine lines and play with colour, pattern and texture. There’s no mass production, absolutely no skimping on details and each and every collection involves careful and considered discussion, planning and designing that is truly a family affair. In a market flooded by mass commercialisation, Philippe Perzi Vienna is a jewel in Vienna’s crown. But if you can’t get to Vienna, you can shop our latest collection of men’s shirts, ties, pocket squares and polo shirts online.
