Guys, if you’re looking for a sartorial refresh for spring, stop into Moda Italy for a dash of European style. Fred Maghsoud's two-year-old men's store offers slim-cut suits, plus an array of button-ups, denim and accessories. His selection is refined and offers a different take on Midwest style than other local men's stores.

"When it comes to fashion, a lot of people like the Italian cuts—and I thought that bringing that here would be innovative," says Maghsoud, referring to his suiting assortment by Enzo, Mantoni and Bertolini. He points out that his 150 and 140 super wool, wool-silk blend, linen and cotton suits are made in the same factory as designer brands Armani Exchange and Issey Miyake, among others.

In fact, part of Maghsoud's goal by opening the boutique was to encourage Madison men to dress better. "As a guy, you can’t have the same look all day, every day," he says. He’s passionate about his suiting and, by extension, talking about the qualities of what makes a good suit. He especially doesn’t want men to be scared off by the "European style" moniker, noting that he keeps the Madison man in mind.

"I look for items that Madisonians can relate to; there are a lot of styles out there. If you look good, you feel good and you do good. That’s our motto, and we believe in it."
