    I would cut out Brooks Brothers. The store is nice but the stock is the same as any other. Based on your list of stores, it doesn't look like you are on a budget. In which case, skip Uniqlo and Century 21. If you are going down to the financial district, you may want to check out Century 21 anyway but I hated the crowds.

    Barney's is a nice store.
    Also on 5th ave, Ferragamo and Zegna among a ton of other higher end tier stores. I think Hermes is there as well.

    If you walk down Madison and back up 5th, you will see a ton. Leffot is down near the village, there isn't much around it but it is worth checking out if you can. The store's selection is small but nice.

    Century 21
    Paul Stuart

    I would think you're better off seeing J Press over Brooks Brothers since the Brooks Brothers is probably the same as the one near where you live.

    Oxxford is just around the corner from Bergdorf Goodman. I was in NYC recently, and I'm kicking myself for not going to Epaulet and getting sized for some Carminas in person. :facepalm:

    Generally speaking, just walk on Madison Av., you'll find all the good places there
    (TF, Hermes, John Lobb, Loro Piana).
    Go to Saks, only if you have visited all the other places you wanted, I wasn't impressed at all.


    Just a note, that John Lobb is much more cheaper in Europe, well at least in the UK and France.

    An absolute must see - it is one of the most beautiful stores I've ever been in, that and Patrick Hellmann in Berlin.

    If you're going to Barney's and Domenico Vacca, then you might as well stop by Cucinelli, Lobb, Berluti - they are all in the same general area. If you're planning on going just a bit further north, then you might also want to check out Peter Elliot, Barbour, maybe even the J. Crew Men's shop on 79th.

    If you go just a bit further south on Madison, Turnbull & Asser at 57th is worth a look. Nice shop.

    My suggestions: Turnbull & Asser at 50 E 57nd Street in NYC. Try J. Press in Madison Avenue too.

    Back from my trip, NYC sure is a fantastic city. Will come back soon again for sure.
    Visited most stores mentioned in this thread. Could have easily bought 20 ties at Paul Stuart, but I put a strain on myself:D

    Didn't actually buy that much, I'm trying to put a strain on myself and only buy what I really need, slowly building a quality wardrobe.
    Purchases in NYC:

    - Allen Edmonds - Strand (Dark Brown)
    - Allen Edmonds - 5th Avenue (Walnut)
    - 2 Pair of chinos (Beige and Navy)
    - Some casual tshirts
    - Grooming products
