A quick shop in Manhattan

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm going to manhatten for 5 days but don't want to spend all my time shopping.

I live in England so only really want to buy stuff that is more difficult to get over here, so no Paul Smith, CJ, Thomas Pink, Hilditch & Key for example. I'm sure there are Ralph, Levis, Gant stores everywhere so that's easy

I only have 1 suitcase so can't go mad which is also why I want to be quite strict as to where I go and not waste any time. The area that looks the best so far from what I've read is soho/broadway and shops like Paul Stuart, APC, Atrium etc - I am on the right track?

Also,

.........For shoes should I get some Aldens or some AE?

.........Coloured trousers, PT style, where's the best place?

..........A nice fitted blazer?


thanks for your help

Paul Stuart is on Madison and 45th. [ http://www.paulstuart.com/store_locations.cfm ] Which is a train ride away from SoHo.

There is a Ralph Lauren store in SoHo. There is Bloomingdales, but it is much smaller than the flagship. Google is great for this stuff:

SOHO

You could also do the Ralph Lauren flagship mansion while you are in midtown at Paul Stuart. I think it is a little farther uptown, like 68th St or something like that.

Do search for my thread on this topic. I shopped in both London and New York this year and my overall impression was unless you are looking for Americana, shipping in Manhattan add nothing to shopping in London. The sum total of my purchase was a seersucker suit from Brooks brothers which I will never wear and a Panama hat that I lost within 48 hours. Paul Stuart and Broooks Brothers are far behind even an average London shop off the Row or Jeremyn stree and not much cheaper.

Btw I also have Alden cordovan and Crockett and Jones. 10 years down the road the Aldens look wrinkled with a totally plasticky sheen on them, while the CJ have developed a beautiful patina and look wonderful. Though ironically the leather comes from America for both the quality of workmanship is completely different. So I really would not recommend Alden

Alden and J. Press are worth seeing on Madison Avenue. And if price is no object, Seaman Schepps on Park Avenue is a must see for cuff links. They are New York-based and make some of the nicest, most elegant cuff links in the world. I remember visiting Arnys in Paris a few years ago. They had a beautiful pair of cuff links and I was just about to pull the trigger on them. But then they told me they were made in New York by Seaman Schepps and I backed out, realizing it made no sense to buy American cuff links in Europe.

Is Leffot worth a visit? I may be in NY myself later this year.
