Hey man - no worries. I just moved here myself from London. It's great to just explore and find little shops here and there. The map is good but i don't think it covers it all. I've found a few great places recently off the beaton path. gotta head around the lower east side. quite a nice pub on ludlow if you want a taste of home. but keep your eyes open -- you snooze and you'll miss some brilliant places in this city. There's the regular big name brands you mentioned, but mate, you gotta check out some new and local brands too man. i've been making me own list since heading around: (I live downtown, so most of this is in the lower east side) check out Miss Behave for pressie for your bird, Nort for nikes, local on ludlow for a pint, foley and corina men for vintage goods, and sugarhead quarters for some tees. Let me know if you need any more tips for shopping this side of the pond. cheers.

^Really? I've never had a bad experience in Union, at least not from the people working there. Some of the customers might be another story, but they cant help that, it's the price of carrying all that BBC stuff.

just humble opinion but i base a lot of my decision to patronize a place on how much i actually enjoy going there. ^^^

i forget the name of the store next to supreme, stackhouse i think, but theyre always nice.

as far as i know, stackhouse has a very small selection of clothes and lots of super-overpriced nike sneakers (for guys).

I will follow up others by saying how nice the people are inside Cloak. Also, the girls inside Opening Ceremony were really cool and very helpful. Uniqlo is always worth hitting up too.

Guys, my friend's in new york now. Any clothing stores which sell slim fitting clothes similar to Hare to reccomend? slim and a little tight fitting, polos would be a good start! hurry! thanks.

edit: would prefer clothes to be on the cheaper side, my pockets burnt.

The 45rpm store in the UES is nice too, a converted townhouse with wood walls and concrete floors with a stream through the center.
