Trillion Store exterior

Structured suits with strong lines and shoulders are the trademark of this 66-year-old Italian brand with a made-to-measure boutique at Bal Harbour Shops. Fabric variety and Italian flair are what make this shop a standout. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-9399;

In business for 21 years, madeto- measure Italian suits are the staple here, with brands ranging from Stefano Ricci and Cesare Attolini to Marol and Moreschi. Appointments are recommended if you’re in a hurry, but they also accept walk-ins. Owner/clothier Sergio Castañeda is the man for all things custom. 9560 Harding Ave., Surfside, 305-861-1495;

Duncan Quinn
The pop-up experience-turnedpermanent residence for Quinn’s “rock ’n’ roll meets Savile Row” style specializes in fitted, highwaisted jackets and slim-fit trousers. Most of its trademark fabrics are milled in the North of England. Quinn’s right-hand man and VP of operations, Grady Wright, is the one you’ll want to see at the Design District outpost. 4040 NE Second Ave., Miami, 305-671-3820;

Specializing in made-to-measure suits, Kiton’s trademark relaxed look moves well with the body. Its latest staple, the Lasa jacket, is only available by special order and takes 40 man-hours to create (typical jackets require 20). Lightweight linens and cashmeres alike are sold here, and all work is overseen by a single tailor from start to finish. Gerardo Petti will see to all of your fitting needs. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-1444;

Maison Martin Margiela
This local storefront is one of only three in the US, and has more than a few celebrity devotees (Jay-Z even namedrops the brand in “Run This Town”). Alterations are done locally, but what’s most interesting is that the house’s suits can also function as separates. 3930 NE Second Ave., Miami, 786-718-1931;

Maus & Hoffman
Located on historic Worth Avenue, M&H has 70-plus years in the business and is great for tweeds, Scottish cashmeres and Liberty cottons. Brands like Salvatore Ferragamo (for shoes) and Ermenegildo Zegna are big sellers at this made-to-measure shop. 312 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, 561-655-1141;

Trillion Store
owner David Neff personally deals with mills, selects fabrics and employs tailors in both Palm Beach and Naples, Italy, to ensure that each suit fits perfectly. His ideal style? “The lightest canvas, minimum shoulder padding, high armholes and full sleeve heads.” Neff’s most popular look is “traditionally current,” with two of three buttons fastened, medium lapel, soft shoulder and trousers without pleats. 315 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, 561-832-3525;

The Webster
The South Beach boutique is a go-to for hard-to-find designer suits by brands such as Tom Ford, Lanvin and Dsquared. Sales associate Carlos Mejia has the “in” on the best fits on-site, specializes in sizing and has a perspective on style. As of late, the YSL classic lapel has emerged as a fan favorite. 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-7899;

Wright Oliver
As old-fashioned as the industry gets, this bespoke tailor and atelier has been in business for 54 years, and sews every single thread by hand with fabrics from England and Italy. Don’t let the unassuming Coconut Grove storefront fool you. Oliver doesn’t follow trends, but rather constructs suits based on exact customer specifications. There’s no website, and he prefers doing business face-to-face rather than over the phone. 3250 Mary St., Miami, 305-443-9754
