Pittsburgh might not be known for its fashions the way it is known for sports and steel, but there are plenty of men that take the time to look great. Many locally owned and operated clothing stores are dedicated to outfitting stylish ‘Burgh men from all walks of life.

Hours: Mon-Sat 10-6
Business Directory Listing

Although the name might fool you, this staple of the East Liberty business district offers a lot more than footwear. As promised, David’s Shoes carries a large selection of sneakers and dress shoes (for men, women, and kids), but they also stock a large selection of men’s weekend-friendly casual clothing and hats.

Although these local options offer stylish clothing solutions for a range of tastes and budgets, the Pittsburgh area has plenty of national retailers. The downtown neighborhood offers Brooks Brothers, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macys, Burlington Coat Factory, Jos A. Bank, and more. These are just a few of names that make a mark on men’s fashion in Pittsburgh.

    Johnston and Murphy. They have been around since 1850 and know a thing or two about great and comfortable footwear! Now they do belts and some clothing, too. Great products and great sales staff…

  • Downtown Worker

    Heinz Healey’s on Fifth Avenue downtown has become my favorite. In addition to quality clothing, you get great personal attention from a knowledgeable staff.

  • Jess Ghilani

    Great suggestions! I will definitely encourage the stylish men I know to check them out. Thank you T.J. and Downtown Worker!

    • T.J.

      You are so welcome, Jess! Been wearing J&M products (footwear in particular) for 20 years and wouldn’t wear anything else.

  • skin501

    I was wondering where the Kenneth Cole store which was located on the Southside relocated to?

    • Brad

      Skin, that has been closes for 2 years… ShoP much?

  • skin501

    Brad, Thanks for the info. i knew it was closed. i wanted to know where they relocated to??? I dont shop much but i really like Kenneth Cole products. I see some KC products at various stores but I wouldnt mind shopping at an actual KC store

    • Jess Ghilani

      Skin501, it is unfortunate that they left the Pittsburgh market but I know they are carried at certain Macys stores. I also know I have seen their stuff at Burlington Coat Factory and TJ Maxx. Still, it isn’t the same as being capable of browsing an entire seasonal collection in an entirely dedicated retail outpost.

    Jessica–What ever happened to Montgomery Ward? My clothes need an update. I am considering the new site of Washington Mission in Monongahela. Your reporting on men’s clothing was excellent, and I am very proud of you!

    Keep it up!
    Love you,

    Jessica–Whatever happened to Montgomery Ward? My clothes need an update, and I am considering shopping at the new Washington Mission store in Monongahela. Your article is great, and we’re very proud.

    Love you!

      hahah Hi Aunt Martha! Thanks for the comment. I did love “Wards” as a kid. I also loved Hills because that was where the toys were. :) Miss you!
