I live walking distance to the Northgate mall and shop there as much as possible. The old navy and Jcpenny seem to be great selection wise for mens clothing. But the northgate mall nordstrom and northgate macys have limited mens clothing selection compared to nordatrom downtown seattle or bellevue. Macys downtown seattle and macys bellevue have a large mens department while northagte macys is limited.

The jcpenny at northgate mall is well managed and has a large selection of attractive mens clothing.

It seems that when i go to the northgate mall i will walk out with several jcpenny bags and several old navy bags bit leave nordstrom and macys empty handed.

Anyone else habe this experience with the northgate mall??

You would think the macys northgate and nordstrom northgate would want to carry as much selection as their Bellevue,Lynnwood and Downtown Seattle stores.

Since i rely on public transportation i will shop in downtown seattle or bellevue when i need something at macys or nordstrom.

Lynnwood is hard to get to by public transportation.

Nordstrom Rack on the south side of Northgate Mall has some nice values.

Head on up to the outlet mall 10600 Quil Ceda Blvd, Tulalip, WA 98271. They have a ton of stores with really good buys. It's a fun trip. We usually head up early as this is a very popular place to shop. They have a decent buffet at the casino next door as well.

Probably because not as many men shop there. Used to be that there was quite a few "men's wear" stores, but not many now, probably because the standard male clothing these days is sneakers, jeans, a t-shirt, and a baseball cap.

You might check out Leroy Menswear at 204 Pike Street for some "colorful" men's wear:

Mostly off topic but an experience I recently had. I haven't shopped a mall in along time, simply don't need to but I was doing some business travel and was near a large mall in Tucson and needed a hat to keep my bald head out of the sun.

As I walked the mall I noticed (it seemed) 1/2 the stores either carried baseball caps, shoes, or shoes and baseball caps.

Why?

Presumably because malls, dying though many may be, seem to cater to teens and working class folks into rah-rah-sports with ball caps and all that. Big old sneakers and similar shoes, too.

Bellsquare Mall being on the opposite end of that divide, apparently, opening such ridiculously Las Vegas or Rodeo Drive stores as Mont Blanc, Swarovski, Bose, and similar. These niche and crazy-money luxury items must sell, else the store(s) surely wouldn't be there.

As for OP's clothes problems, I personally take the bus to Westlake downtown Seattle and shop and Nordstrom Rack pretty much exclusively. Stylish, usually good quality. Like many men, my fashion needs are few and far between, and that place covers most (though not quite all) more than sufficiently.
