I don't know about the area the OP is talking about, but I do know that Stein Marts around here have a really good selection of upscale looking mens hats at very reasonable prices.

The Stein Mart in my area has really nice stuff, and not old lady-ish either.

OMG! The Steinmart near me is insane. If you are a woman who wants to dress like a plus sized a Myna bird in a glitter american flag tshirt go for it. What they carry is so completely crazy I go there sometimes just to take pictures of the crazy and text them to people. It is all polyester nightmares.

The men's section has some decent stuff and some modern cuts but a TON of pastel golf-like apparel marketed as everyday ware. What strip-mall shopping man is looking for a bright yellow linen sports coat in a size 52s?

I love Stein Mart, especially for their fancy holiday season attire. I buy my dress-up shoes/boots there too. They usually have some good sales on their household goods, and at the end of the year after Christmas, it's a free-for-all with their blowout clearance sales.

By any chance is that during a holiday season? They do have one section near the front of the store with more upscale clothing.

ETA: I saw your other post. I guess you're still young.

I've noticed that at my Steinmart as well - and I'm not young. It's not the only stuff there by any means but there's definitely a vibe of catering to older women who like a flashy, blingy look. Animal prints, rhinestones etc. I picture these women as always in full makeup, false eyelashes, nails and designer handbags at the grocery store. Not a typical look for my part of the country.

LOL It is definitely typical in the Deep South where I live. But not my personal choice. I am a jeans-and-Vans girl.

This has been my experience as well. Prices aren't that great. Might as well just go to Nordstrom Rack or Mashall's, TJ max.

We recently went to a different Stein Mart than our usual nearby location. I noticed that like Macy's, Stein Mart's selection seems to cater to the local demographics. Our local Stein Mart in Queen Creek no longer carries IZOD, however, this Stein Mart in Gilbert still carries IZOD and instead has dropped Nautica except for the dress shirts.

I'm a bit surprised about this, since Nautica is priced slightly higher than IZOD, while I'd expect that the average household income to be higher in Gilbert than in Queen Creek. In addition, this store in Gilbert is a significantly larger store than the one in Queen Creek. I even saw some IZOD shirts at this store that I haven't seen anywhere else, including some Saltwater Collection polo shirts.

From what I was told by a store associate, what brands to carry isn't determined by the store, but by upper management.

When the Queen Creek store carried IZOD, I have bought some stuff there in the past, including a Fairy Tale pink Interlock Feeder Stripe polo from the Spring 2015 collection.

I wonder, does anyone else here shop at Stein Mart? I'd like to come to this Gilbert store more often, particularly when they have the major sales.
Nope. They closed all of their shops in our area years ago. I haven't seen one in years in my travels up and down the east coast either.
