    I'm near Indianapolis.

    There probably isn't, but I thought I would try to see if there were any cool places to shop.

    Thrifts can be a goldmine in the midwest, if you don't mind digging. I always liked the Value Villages, but it might only be because there weren't any in my hometown so they seem a little more exotic than the Salvation Army. http://www.yelp.com/biz/value-village-inc-indianapolis

    Mostly douchey stuff, and I'm not sure that they are around anymore, but Frankeys did carry CP Company, Inhabit, James Perse, Acne, and Velvet Men, which are all good for basics, at very least. Of course, they also have super douchey stuff.

    Unless they were born and raised here.


    OP, check the net, you probably have something like a Macy's or Boston Store (at least) in Indy, check those out. There has to be a mall with the basic menswear mall brands (Gap, JCrew, etc) If not... drive to Chicago. It's only 2 hours.

    I get this feeling all the time. Born and raised (apart from a stint overseas) in the South, and decided to head to Purdue for University... not a bad school by any means, but there's just nothing here.

    Indy is alright, though. Not much in the way of outlets or little niche stores, but it's a cool city for other reasons. The internet is your friend around here, though.

    As for hating the shit the midwest gets, I feel your pain every time someone equates the South = Stupid racist bible-thumping morons.

    Well, I hate the South because of the weather. We do fire work in Florida, and boy, does it suck. No wonder people are so frickin' angry. The North East (I lived in Boston for 4 years) sucks for weather too. You get a cold winter, a few nice weeks of spring and fall when it's not raining, and then a hot, muggy, AC-less summer. No wonder people are so rude and angry. The west is where it's at, whether it's northwest or down in California.

    There isn't much in Indianapolis, but you are a short drive from Chicago, though Chicago sort of sucks for shopping too, compared to NYC and LA.

    Purdue is in Lafayette. There is literally nothing here, except the University and the Caterpillar Plant. Maybe some cool small-town restaurants in the town center, but it's mostly just bars - most of which are pretty dormant, right now, since school isn't in session.

    I google mapped it, it's only 12 hours from Indy to NYC. All OP needs is a passenger to help pass the time.

    You're in Indiana for the weekend and you're annoyed because you can't find a cool place to buy some clothes? Dude

    Ha ha!

    Your time would be better spent in the local Hooters.
