    I will be making a rare visit to NYC next week from Europe and wanted the advice of the members on this board which are the "do not miss" shops I should visit to pick up a few items. I am keen to find things that are not readily available here in Europe so looking for classic quintessentially American brands. Thanks

    That is a tricky question. The internet has made most products available world wide. If you are visiting New York City, go to the colorful lower East side at have a corned beef sandwich at Katz Delicatessen..

    A few places I would recommend: Paul Stuart, Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren (Mansion in the UES), and Leffot. Some are for the selection but others are for the ambiance (e.g., the Mansion).

    Enjoy your trip.

    I argue 2nd Avenue Deli has better pastrami. :fence:

    Leffot is a must stop for NYC. Even just to say you've been. The Armoury if that's your fancy. Alden on Madison is "quintessentially American" and should fit your bill.
