I think it is close enough that anyone who cares at all about style should drive the 60 minutes there and check out the whole street instead of the 25 min. or whatever to, say, a Brooks Brothers, for goodness sakes.
Plus, everyone has at least one buddy to visit in Madtown, right?
Cheers!

What's wrong with Brooks Brothers? It may not be hip and trendy, but it has stood the test of time.... and will likely do so for years to come. There are also "unique and different" options there, but nothing too whacked out.

Granted, if the OP is looking for something "cool" and even "anti-establishment" (like a sleek, jet-black artiste-style sports coat, or a European-style open-collar "dress" shirt with purple and canary highlights), then yeah, BB wouldn't do.

It sort of depends if AH09 wants to look like a Porsche-driving celebrity, a banker, or something in between.

Quijote, I'd say more porsche-driving celebrity Lmfao! Brooks Brothers and especially the store diagonally across from the Bayshare town center have a nice colorful banker style selection of outfits but I already have clothes like that so I'm going for a little something more hip and trendy. Did I mention these stores have thee nicest staff members of all time? I was just breath taken by the sociability and cordiality of all the staff members at these stores. They ask and call you by your name even upon farewell and everything. They had me feeling guilty I didn't buy anything after all that. Even though I didn't find what I was looking for at these stores, I'm glad you steered me in this direction quijote because I found this light summer jacket I absolutely fell in love with at the Bayshore Town Center. I actually never explored the Bayshore town center before as I usually only go indoors and the atmosphere was to die for. Just a shame it's on the other side of town.

Hell, I barely have any friends in the Milwaukee area with my sheltered behind, much less outside of the Milwaukee area? I'm working on that. Anyways, what kind of clothing do they sell exactly at JazzMan's? I looked for a website and they didn't really have one or at least one that shows what types of apparel they carry?

If you're looking for something more contemporary, did you try Detour and Moda, listed in a previous post?

It's hard to believe there aren't other suitable places (forgive the pun) to buy such attire.... It looks like the Third Ward has a couple of popular shops....

OnMilwaukee.com Marketplace: J. Bird Boutique lets men in on the fashion scene

OnMilwaukee.com Marketplace: Fashion for men and women Flaires up in the Ward

The Brady Street area probably has a few more than already mentioned. Have you taken a look at Aala Reed?:

Aala Reed Clothing - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Perhaps also Whitefish Bay, Mequon, and Wauwatosa have some edgy places, but I'm not in that loop.

Quijote, you're wonderful for going out of your way to find more options for me out there. I can hardly wait to check into some of the above listed. Very much agreed on it being hard to believe there's not tons more fitting choices (excuse my own pun lol) in this ever colorful city of ours. By the way, you're only too right about Brady Street: I've walked to and fro down that street a few times during the evening hours when shops were closed and ostensibly at least, they seemed to have a a few creative clothing choices. I haven't managed to drudge up the energy and time to check out all the other choices listed from this website yet but I hope to in the coming week or so. Anyways, as always, you've been a great help.
