Department store wise...Kohls, Target TJMaxx and yes even Walmart has some decent stuff from time to time.

If you want a little more "quality" LL Bean hands down for me...yea you can do North Face etc but I just like Beans stuff. There is a store in Evergreen Walk, but we usually head to Freeport ME at the mothership in Oct and hit the factory outlet store for Walmart prices.

Suggestions for a guy: Man sweaters (not the lightweight office b-word sweaters) and quilted/fleece lined jeans are your best friend. We can talk more tomorrow on the road.

I've really gotten into Kohls lately. They don't necessarily have the 'top of the line' designers but they have some good stuff for casual and slightly above casual dressing. I wouldn't buy suits there, but they have very good prices and a good selection on jeans, casual dress pants, button down shirts, polo shirts, etc.

I've only been to Kohl's twice. I was a bit put off by the signage in the stores.

Somehow, I missed that one....

Part of the reason I go to Kohls is laziness. I hate the whole hassle of going to a mall, and there's a free-standing Kohls right near my house. I could walk there.

But their prices are great. I don't find there to be any great noticeable different between a $30 pair of jeans and a pair costing a lot more. The department stores like Macys are a lot more expensive, and in a lot of cases, it's not worth the extra money. As I said, there are certain types of clothes I wouldn't buy at Kohls, but for the casual stuff it's great.

You're not far from Cabela's... may be worth stopping by to see what they've got. I haven't bought any winter stuff from them, but they have some other store-brand clothes that I've liked a lot. I've never had a problem returning anything to them, and you can buy from their website and have it shipped to the store for free. It may be a good idea to check their site for sales/coupons before buying as they do run promos pretty regularly.

I don't know how cold-tolerant you are, but personally I wouldn't buy an entire winter wardrobe before going thru your first winter. I get by pretty well with just a winter coat and boots for the most part, though I never have to be out in the cold for too long.

I agree about Kohl's being a good place to start but Macy's and Penny's often have good sales too. I almost never buy anything unless it is on sale at these stores.

And Stratford, what is wrong with my haircut??? Jay
