    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

    timing is everything............had your trip been next week, your shopping list would have been much different (and longer!).

    Still, sounds like you had a good time :)

    If so my bank account got lucky I chose to visit this past week;) But it was a combines business and leasure trip so I didn't really have an option to choose which week to go.

    yes, many sales will start next week. I know saks and neimans already started, barneys and bergdorf should be following suit.......

    Bumping this thread. I'll be in Manhattan for a couple days later this month. Schedule is fairly tight. Are there any stores in Brooklyn that demand a trip across the bridge?

    Bumping this thread..........


    I will be going to NYC next month and will be looking to purchase sportscoats/blazers and ties. I am especially hoping to find some ties( Ferragamo,Tom Ford & Hermes,etc) at discounted prices. Right now my store list is the following:

    Crockett & Jones - to try on shoes before ordering

    Century 21 - WIll I find deals on great ties there?

    SuitSupply


    Any other stores worth checking out?

    I would skip domenico vacca (at least the one nearest Central Park). Poor staff, and clothes didn't look that great compared to other NYC options.

    Barney's- be sure to check out sartorio and campagna brands, ground floor currently under construction and looks like shit

    Attolini at Madison & 68th, worth a look. Shirts are extremely nice too

    NYC trip never complete without a visit to RL mansion!

    Oh, and leave OUT century 21. Waste of time and will just piss u off-- take a Woodbury commons bus trip instead

    I disagree with the C21 assessment; they have great deals on ties.

    Brioni and TF ties for 80; Battistoni for $40(!). Ive even seen Zegna Couture ties for $60.

    Also, saw an amazing solid navy Corneliani suit in 38R for $600; regret not picking it up.
