I'm a fan of Wrangler jeans and Henry Ford, does that count for anything?

Any country that is responsible for Jaguar and Range Rover ain't worth shopping in.

Ebay for WHATEVER you need.

If you take away Saks Bloomies and Macy's shopping in NYC is no better than going to your local "all in one' mall...coach nike addidas urban outfitters....etc. All the typical crap you can find in the heartland is right here. Better to buy online and avoid tax.....and flakey sales staff.

People are brainwashed that NYC has everything. It really doesn't.

* What used to separate NYC from other cities were the numerous mom and pop shops that stocked their shelves according to personal tastes not on orders from corporate HQ's
You don't really avoid tax... you just end up kicking the can down the road.

You can't buy a gun tax-free if you live in NYC.

Only tourists and rich people shop at those places you mentioned. Who wants to pay 8.6% sales tax.

Most NYers shop online or go to NJ for the same stores you mentioned and less sales tax.
You still end up paying 8.6% tax.... there's no savings of going to NJ or purchasing online...

Wrangler is one of the few that still makes a quality product. Their workwear line called RIGGS is a must have if you like heavy duty workwear jeans.

Dickies Industrial Jeans also are a great deal at roughly $23 a piece. However I notice that almost EVERYONE low and high end jean makers are using cheap ass zippers. I guess there is a shortage on zippers ?

Not really . It depends on where you shop. I avoid tax most often then I don't when I shop online and prices for goods are mainly cheaper than across the street at my local store. It is a win win situation for me.

I was referring to residents of NY. If you live in NY, you must pay tax on online purchases. There's no (legal) way to avoid it.

"When you purchase taxable property or services from a seller (vendor)
located in New York State and take delivery in New York State, the vendor
should collect state and local sales tax due and send it to the Tax
Department. However, you are responsible for paying the tax directly to the
Tax Department under the following circumstances:
Deliveries into New York State without collection of sales tax
You owe state and local sales tax if you purchase taxable property or a
taxable service that is delivered to you in New York State without
payment of New York State and local tax to the seller, such as through
the Internet
, by catalog, from television shopping channels, or on an
Indian reservation."

Nice but doesn't really translate into reality. Amazon and Zappos WILL charge tax but several other websites I use DON'T.
