Nice Clothing stores for men
Win A Style Consultation With Our Fashion Editor In NYC
There’s a reason New York boasts some of best shopping in the world. Hint: It doesn’t have anything to do with touristy trinkets in Times Square or nondescript stores in NoHo. Sure, in a city this size, there’s a sea of unremarkable retailers. But we’ve weeded out the New York clothing stores that are a waste of time to bring you our hit list of places with the most sought-after style anywhere.
Quite possibly the most important (and most expensive) department store in the world — and there’s only one location. The current site between 57th and 58th streets has been open for business since 1928. Directly across 5th Avenue lies the smaller menswear-only offshoot, established in 1990, that houses three full floors of swank shopping.
Specialty: Anything and everything, from the finest in suiting to fashion-forward sportswear (just as long as it’s insanely luxurious).
Looks & Labels: Quintessential Italian-tailored clothing from Kiton; Tom Ford neckwear; BG exclusive hoodies from the gifted hands of Tim Hamilton.
J.Crew Liquor Store
The ultimate in East Coast prep didn’t get its start farther north in New England. Instead, South Street Seaport is the ancestral home of this every-guy go-to brand. And though you can certainly shop a J.Crew in almost any town in America, ventures like the Liquor Store, an Andy Spade-designed, dimly lit, dark-paneled hideaway inside a former Tribeca bar, can only be found in NYC.
Specialty: All the hard-to-find J.Crew collaboration items under one roof.
Looks & Labels: Thomas Mason dress shirts; lace-ups from Alden; Baracuta jackets; tons of handpicked vintage accoutrements to satisfy any sartorialist’s appetite.
A treasure trove of luxe labels packed into a miniature department store-ish store. The best-of-the-best items are selected by owner-buyer Jeffrey Kalinsky, and as luck would have it, he has great taste.
Specialty: The usual names found at high-end, big-box competitors, with a sprinkling of boutique labels to keep pace with this Meatpacking store’s trendy surroundings.
Looks & Labels: Bags by Prada; belts by Gucci; complete selections of apparel from typically less men’s-minded houses, such as Dior and Chanel.
Like most full-fledged Broolynites, Oak is tucked away in a converted space (in this case, a garage) and keeps a low profile (store signage is nonexistant). There’s a Manhattan location for those allergic to the L train, but flagship-only finds are worth the trek.

I don't think it's "enough" just to be clean and keep your nose hair trimmed-although that IS important. Read magazines, talk to SAs, look in stores. I hate to see men just thrown together, no matter how clean/expensive the clothing. Put some interesting combos together. Wear vests with your jeans and nice, white shirt. Wear good boots and interesting shoes. Can the athletic shoes, unless you are running/playing sports. I find careless footwear a turn off. Get rid of the tube socks, baggy boxers and dull tightie whities. Get some colored socks. You don't have to spend a fortune. Wear belts with interesting buckles. Women notice DETAILS! Get manicures (no colorless polish, please) and pedicures. Give yourself weekly facials. Wear subtle and unusual esential oils. Stay away from the...
