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.
Woodbury Common Premium Outlets
Woodbury Common is the capital of American outlet shopping. The shortlist of stores that cater to stylish men includes Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabanna, John Varvatos, Bottega Veneta, Brioni, Burberry, Dunhill, Prada, Moncler, and Valentino. There are more affordable stores, too, but you can find those anywhere. Save up the money (and energy) to visit every few months and buy new statement pieces and power suits. The important thing is to arrive with a budget in mind in order to avoid heading home with a trunk full of new clothes.
