    Cool. If he knows the area, J. Novachis is located in the area of 50th and France ( http://www.50thandfrance.com ) in Edina. There are a few more cool men's shops there like Belleson's and Al Johnson Clothier. The other place is located in the Southdale Mall in Edina. It's called the Len Druskin Clerance center, everything is 50-90% off. The actual Len Druskin store is in the Galleria, across the street ( http://www.lendruskin.com/ ) Have fun!

    Good choices. You also purchased a lease on a place? Where did you end up?

    I haven't yet, but I can tell you that I'm going to be within 3 miles of Microsoft's building up in Redmond. I work at a gym across the street from there, and I'll need to be walking to work. I'll be heading up there June 25th to check out and hopefully lease a place, since I start work around July 1st. I haven't lived in Seattle since I was 2, so you'll have to tell me where the shopping is at, as I hear Bellevue has some good stores :>

    Honestly, I hate Bellevue. I grew up there, and it's awful. But if you wander the mall you will find all the stores. I don't think there are any outlying shops you'd be interested in. Avoid Beck's tailoring - expensive and not very good at what they do. I think Hartmann's is still there by the mall, and they are probably better. But, near where you are there are a couple of semi-decent, if sometimes old-people-oriented thrift shops - the Cancer Society one is just down 148th by the Safeway (decent dim sum right next door btw), and across 24th from that is the Children's Hospital one. Also Goodwill is on 20th and 148th-ish, but I rarely find anything good in there. Ross is not worth going into ever, but Marshalls is also nearby at 20th. They just opened a TJ Maxx in Factoria (10 minutes south of you basically), but the selection is crap at the moment, and there's a Nordstrom Rack there. Check out the food court at Crossroads Mall (156th and 8th), some decent stuff there. If you shop at Bellevue Square, eat at Cucina del Puerco down in old Bellevue (main and west of Bel. Way), and good burgers and shakes are available at Broiler Bay which is hidden on Main and the east side of Bel. Way by the locksmith. I'll probably think of some other Bellevue tips later.

    To do any real shopping you'll need to come to Seattle. Actually to do anything cool you'll need to come to Seattle. Check out the Seattle streetwear thread for more info on that.

    I got new boots, tell me what you think of them guys. They're Joanne Mercer, mostly flat, because tramping around University all day in heels kind of kills. [​IMG]

    It's the one without the back box pleat, which is good for me because I need XXL in that... I got it from shopjake, they only had XL left, which is what I take in the regular one. $105 shipped.
