Kilgore Trout is one of a select group of American stores to be regularly named an Italian Style Leader by Esquire, and has been named multiple times to Esquire's Best of Class list.  Says Esquire, "Of all men's stores in the country, these stores serve as the finest."

Why the name Kilgore Trout?

Kurt Vonnegut's famous alter-ego Kilgore Trout inspired us back in 1977.   And with Vonnegut's permission, we named the store for the character who appeared repeatedly throughout Vonnegut's literary work .  Next time you visit us, take a look at the original letter from Kurt, which we proudly display.
