Add Barney's, and assuming you can't them locally, Helmut Lang, Hermes, and Salvatore Ferragamo. (Yeah, I've taken heat here on Ferragamo before, but I really like their clothing line in addition to their shoes.) Peace, JG

I'm not sure if it's too your taste, but I would add Jeffrey for designer stuff and Scoop for jeans. How about Saks?

Also perhaps Alfred Dunhill,and Cartier's flagship store on Fifth Ave. For shoes I suggest you try the store called Belgian Shoes on 110 East 55th Street, and John Lobb on 680 Madsion Ave. between 61st, and 62nd Street.

great suggestions; i forgot that saks is, of course, near the top of my list (my wife is also making a kind of pilgrimage to NYC.). good ideas on Ferragamo, etc. has anyone ever been to Harrison James?

Harrison James is no longer open. It closed a few years ago. Definitely add Barneys. If you're looking for casual wear or sportswear, maybe check out Camouflage. But it's a little out of the way in terms of its location to the major shopping areas of New York (so is Jeffrey), so it may not be worth the trouble. In terms of other stores, pretty much every designer you can think of has a boutique here. Just stroll along Madison Ave, and you'll see them. Some designers have their only U.S. boutique here in New York. If you have a favorite designer, I can tell you if he/she has a store here.

Russ: All of these suggestions are great. I have a database on NYC, if you'd like it. Aesthetically, Calvin Klein, Helmut Lang, and Yohji Yamamoto (Gianfranco Ferre is also very cool) are my favorites. However, the clothing featured there is not very traditional-which you and I tend to favor. Some other suggestions- Borrelli boutique (60th and Madison- right across 60th from Barney's), Peter Elliott (80th or so and Madison- lots of Borrelli and Kiton in a boutique type atmosphere), Jay Kos (71st and Lex), and Davide Cenci (72nd? and Madison) have  things you may like. Robert Talbott is right next to John Lobb's. And Oxxford is right next to T&A. Paul Smith has some cool stuff too. I think it's around 16th and 5th...And I discovered a really good, really reasonable custom shirt shop on my last visit. Will you just be in the city? There are a number of other places in the Tristate area I really enjoyed, and could highly recommend. Steve
