So often relegated to second place in terms of options, men’s fashion is truly coming into its own – a trend evident on the shopping streets of Dublin. A new wave of painfully cool menswear stores have arrived, co-existing with the trusted family-run businesses that have been clothing Irish men for generations. Spoiled for choice, we’ve compiled this list of the best places to buy menswear in the city.
Louis Copeland and Sons
Since its inception in 1933, this master tailor and purveyor of fine suits has dressed everyone from Hollywood actors like Pierce Brosnan and Kevin Spacey through to two American presidents – Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Currently run by the third generation of the Copeland family, they now have five stores across the city, all selling luxury occasional wear and designer casual clothing for men.
Louis Copeland and Sons, 41 Capel St, Dublin 1, Ireland, +353 1 872 0055
Nowhere is a progressive menswear store that seeks to defy convention. Placing themselves at the cutting edge of international male fashion, they are bringing the newest and most innovative designs fresh from the catwalk to the men of Dublin. In so doing, their intention is not only to provide Irish men with a broader range of options but also to challenge traditional conceptions of masculinity. They even run the ‘A Nowhere Man‘ podcast, where they discuss ideas about men and culture.
Nowhere, 65 Aungier St, Dublin 2, Ireland, +353 1 607 8983
Named after the 18th-century Mayfair tailor who designed the first hunting coat, the high-end British shirtmaker chain Thomas Pink has flagship stores in London, New York and Paris. Their Dublin outlet can be found on Dawson Street, stocking superior quality men’s dress shirts, ties and knitwear.

Indigo & Cloth
The Indigo & Cloth menswear and lifestyle store, trading studio and café has been bringing quality design to Dublin’s Temple Bar area since its arrival in 2007. As well as doing the branding for the boutique Dean hotel and others, they curate a considered collection of men’s clothing that includes items like Gitman Vintage shirts, classic Levi’s denim and Nordic Sandqvist bags. Their customers tend to stand out from the crowd in the best possible way.

Another independent, family-run menswear store, Genius, on the ground floor of the historic Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, is known for stocking one of Dublin’s widest selections of denim, boots and leather. Head here for labels like Diesel, Replay and Red Wing.
Genius, 6a, Clarendon St, Dublin 2, Ireland, +353 1 679 7851
Tamp & Stitch
Part clothing store, part boutique café, Tamp & Stitch supplies independently roasted coffee as well as the kind of attire you won’t find anywhere else in the city. Enjoy a caffeine boost while you survey the rails – expect soft cotton shirts in distinctive original prints.
Tamp & Stitch, Scarlet Row, Essex Street West, Dublin 2, Ireland, +353 1 515 4705
B. Lynch & Sons
Established in 1932, B. Lynch & Sons is an authentic, family-run business that still believes the customer is always right. Their dedicated, personal service sets them apart from the global chains that swamp the high street, and their attention to detail means that their products are of a far higher quality, so they actually last.
B. Lynch & Sons, 62 Camden Street Lower, Dublin 2, Ireland, +353 1 475 1642
