What about the rest of Texas? S.A., Austin, Ft. Worth? S.A. has a respectable amount of high end shopping.

Because neither Austin or SA come close to Houston or even Dallas, so that is why they aren't represented. Does either city have exclusive stores?

Since the list includes local boutiques like Forty-five Ten and Stanley Korshak in Dallas, there are comprable local boutiques in San Antonio and Austin:

By George in Austin carries directional apparel and accessories by Marni, Chloe, Lanvin, Kenzo, etc. A brand mix between Forty-five Ten and Merry Vose's Canary in Dallas.

Julian Gold in San Antonio is more reserved/ Classic in style and carries Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Etro, St John, Escada, and evening wear by Elie Saab, Naeem Khan, etc. They also run a bridal salon carrying Monique Lhiullier, Amsale, Carolina Herrera (comprable to Korshak's bridal salon).

These markets are obvi not big enough to support freestanding stores for most all of these brands but local boutiques service the markets quite well. Both of these boutiques have been around for decades.

San Antonio's Shops at La Cantera, La Cantera Towne Center, North Star, & Austin's Domain do have many freestanding stores that you find at the Galleria & Highland Park and shopping found in Houston, but the list is nowhere as lengthy. The Premium outlet Shops at San Marcos serving both metros also has a lot that is listed for Dallas & Houston, of course its an outlet mall versus a full service store and probably not the same shopping experience.

The store rosters for all those shopping centers/ malls are not of the same caliber as HP Village or the luxury corridors of NorthPark or Houston Galleria. They are the usual suspects one expects to find at any upper middle class mall (Tory Burch, Tiffany, JCrew, etc) and not the ultra luxury shops OP's list counts (Hermes, Tom Ford, Brunello Cucinelli, Dior, Celine, etc). Even though a specialty boutique may stock Oscar de la Renta gowns in San Antonio, there is NO WAY that market could support a freestanding Oscar store like Dallas does.

Dallas does offer all exclusive high end shopping in one location such as HP that is less of a mixture. All im saying is that a lot of the upscale shopping found in Dallas and Houston can also be found in S.A., Austin just on a smaller scale and not just in the form of boutiques selling the different types of luxury brands.

Houston & Dallas are bigger metros so they obviously have the best of everything as far as shopping.

After reading several comments I have decided that the title, Texas: A Shopping Paradise, is misleading and will now include Austin and San Antonio compared together while Dallas and Houston will remain compared together due to the similar markets for the regions. I am not as familiar with Austin and San Antonio so it will be a work in progress forming the initial lists.
