The Coolest Istanbul Menswear Boutiques

Updated: 13 November 2016
It is no secret that Turkish men are a little sensitive when it comes to their outer appearance. You’ll often see them getting facials and a manicure at their favorite barber, so when it comes to clothes, expectations are also quite high. Whether it is a classic look or something a tad more eccentric, here are Istanbul’s best menswear boutiques for the gentlemen who are not ashamed of their metrosexual selves.

Civan

Hidden in Çukurcuma, the Istanbul neighborhood known for its beautiful antique stores, Civan is a haven for men who admire the fashion trends of the past – vintage inspiration in the form of bow ties and plaid jackets, colorful button-down shirts, and kerchiefs. There is a definite 1920s vibe at Civan, which is on the first floor of a lovely wooden house. Either pick out something from the racks and have it tailored perfectly to your body or choose some fabric and buttons to have an outfit custom made. Either way, any ensemble you acquire from Civan will be extremely unique.

Civan, Çukurcuma Caddesi No.42, Çukurcuma, Istanbul, Turkey, +90 212 243 32 11

Shopi Go

For a more urban look where dark colors take center stage, Shopi Go in Nişantaşı (befittingly Istanbul’s fashion neighborhood) is a more suitable fit. Quite the popular online shop, Shopi Go’s store is a sleek space filled with cool brands such as Marni, Marc Jacobs, Adidas by Raf Simons, J.W. Anderson, and many others. Apart from the clothes that hang on the black metal racks, the store also has a collection of accessories that range from skateboards and books to suitcases and sunglasses. Whatever you need, you will no doubt find the most fashionable version at this boutique, and if not, check out their website that features frequent discounts.

Bey Karaköy

More attuned to the Kinfolk-reading-young-urban-creative hipster, Bey Karaköy looks like something you might easily find in Berlin. The very minimal space in Karaköy, one of Istanbul’s trendiest neighborhoods, is cleanly organized with hand-selected merchandise. You will find gorgeous leather backpacks hanging from the walls, while the racks have all the Scandinavian-inspired simple yet modern basics, from button-down shirts to shoes and everything in between (even socks). What sets Bey apart, however, is that the boutique focuses on local brands even though the aesthetic is anything but. From Niyo by Niyazi Erdoğan to Tox Atelier, you will find some unique items from up-and-coming Turkish designers and entrepreneurs, with prices to match their exclusivity.

Bey Karaköy, Kemankeş Karamustafapaşa Mahallesi, Mumhane Caddesi No.54/1, Karaköy, Istanbul, Turkey, +90 532 700 59 55
