Dong Dea Mun, is great.. the later you go there, the cheaper everything is! I went at 3:30am and the place was packed!!! Another fav, for my wife was the Express Bus Terminal. I could never find anything that I liked, did I mention Ilived there for 2 years?, so I never bought that much stuff, not to say I didn't try. The best place for me was Apkujon, the high-end shopping district.
Have you been to Myung-Dong? They're a bit more designer than DDM. Every time I visit Korea, I spend hundreds on clothing
Did you shop at places like Noton Homme? First experience with them when my girlfriend bought matching shirts from them -_-". Good quality and some really great designs. I really wish they had an online store.
