Whether you need a formal suit for a special event or just a pair of shorts and a T-shirt, Cape Town has a number of menswear stores that have everything you need. Check out our guide to the best menswear stores in the Mother City.

Bastille Store

Bastille is a French concept store based in the CBD. Its design philosophy focuses on cool casual wear injected with style and is perfect for a laidback holiday in sunny Cape Town. Stand out from the crowd in its range of denim shirts and jeans, printed T-shirts, sweaters, jackets, sneakers and accessories.

Nic Harry

Tired of dull colors and bland design? Then pay Nic Harry a visit at its flagship store in Wale Street, Cape Town. This fashion-forward brand stocks daring and stylish men’s accessories for those who ‘are tired of being boxed into a corner every day’. The brand’s signature item, socks, come in an array of colors and prints, perfect for wedding day photos or adding an injection of color into your everyday work wear. The socks are made from incredibly soft and luxurious bamboo fibers and cotton, making them arguably the most comfortable ones you’ll ever wear! Apart from socks, Nic Harry also stocks a range of accessories, including lapel pins, shoelaces, pocket squares and ties. You can also find a Nic Harry stall at the V&A Waterfront.

ZED Menswear

ZED Menswear is a stylish boutique based in Century City, Cape Town. The brand is the ultimate go-to for custom suits tailored to perfection and for specialty shirts crafted from the finest Italian fabrics. The store also stocks Crockett & Jones handcrafted leather shoes from England, a perfect choice to round off your ensemble.


Founded in 2002, CSquared is a cutting-edge formal menswear brand that focuses on the slim, body conscious cut that young, urban men desire. Its tailoring and quality of fabrics is distinctly Italian with a focus on the latest international trends each season. CSquared has a huge following in South Africa and is regularly worn by local celebrities and menswear enthusiasts. If you’re ambitious and an all-round go getter who isn’t afraid to be bold, stop by the flagship store at Canal Walk Shopping Center.
