Men generally shop in one of two ways: They go in search of a signature piece or a new wardrobe. The latter strategy is a good deal more expensive than the former, which can be done in any hip neighborhood in any city in America. The best bet? Heading to an outlet mall. The outlet experience may lack the romance of boutique browsing, but it allows goal-oriented shoppers to swiftly and effectively dress themselves in corduroy, denim, and slick new suits. But not all outlets are created equal. These are the best spots for men ready to make a day of it.
If you're in any need of work clothes, head to Tanger Outlets on Long Island. They've got just about every major purveyor of suits and business casual represented and discounted. Between Theory, Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth, Jos. A. Bank, and Brooks Brothers, you'll find well-tailored two-pieces that fit alongside outerwear options like trenches and topcoats. Less of a commuter and more of a business traveler? Head to Tumi, Coach Men, and the Movado Company Store for all the accessories you need.
