Hi Styleforum, I've been out of NYC for a few years and am not aware of the latest retail options. I'm taking a shopping-phobic friend on my next visit and need to know what's new/good. He's a teacher and needs simple, hard-wearing, but good staples.

He's short but stout, so I'm looking for a store with custom shirts - not someone that does S-M-L or anything. Price point around $150/shirt or less. I'm certain we could try SuitSupply or equivalent, but I thought there might be an alternative the forum knows about. And he needs a personal touch, not online.

Similarly, I'm looking for someplace doing affordable but decent trousers. Yeah, we can hit the Liquor Store or whatever, but I thought I'd see if y'all had a different idea.

In the past, I had sent him to Epaulet (successfully), and I'm looking for similarly laid back venue. Any ideas?

  • My style hasn't changed at all.

  • My wardrobe hasn't changed but I am wearing casual clothes more often.

  • I invested in new good quality leisure and casual clothes.

  • I invested in new sartorial clothes taking advantage of the sales.

  • I purged my closet during quarantine and I have nothing left to wear.
