I generally stick to lurking 'round here, trying to learn a few things. I'm heading to New York for the first time next weekend, and I'd love some recommendations for stores to check out from locals. Mainly (but not exclusively) looking for classic shoes, trousers and ties. If you know of any unique shops, I'd appreciate it.
Something to keep in mind - I work in journalism. Not looking for the highest-end stuff, but willing to spend more for quality items. But, yes, I do essentially work for ham sandwiches.
Thanks in advance.
