Hi

As the title sais I am looking for good places to shop in NY. So far I have managed to track down Nom de Guerre (on Broadway) and Barneys. I am looking for more flagship stores and stuff like that. Teach me


BTW: Which Barneys is "the best", I can see that there are serveral Barneys in the city.

when you're at NdG, cross Houston into SoHo where the best shops are imo

the Bloomingdales there is better than the main one on 61st..it's slightly edgier

there is a Paul Smith flagship store that is a must see (dont bother with the smaller one on 5th ave)

Ben Sherman has a flagship store

tons of cool shops in the entire area
Jean Shop
Blue in Green
Cloak (is it even still there?)
APC
agnes b
etc etc

That entire area is worth spending a days walk in

Midtown Manhattan is more Men's Clothing subform haven, but lot of good shops there too

Last time I was in NY (awhile ago now
), I enjoyed Jack Spade, Built by Wendy, and Steven Alan as well, but of course it depends on your style.

I find the maps at superfuture to be very helpful, although the soho one is kind of hard to read these days.

Ok, well I've got a picture of how the entrance looks (with the sign on the ground and all that) so hopefully it shouldn't be too hard.

Are there any more places that you'd recommend? I assume most flagship stores is located at Fifth Avenue?
