Lord & Taylor, LL Bean, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macys, what regional stores do you have near you?. Which do you think are over-priced or just not good, and why. Or which do you think are great and would never shop elsewhere?.

In our area we used to have Proffits/now Belks. Its not good (Used to be called "Paris" in Atlanta area)

Not talking about Wal-mart. Interested in where everyone, if they dont shop online, goes for clothes shopping.

Lord and Taylor, Nordstroms (main and Rack), and Saks Off 5th.

Lord and Taylor is upper middle class, as they fit somewhere in-between Macys (mainstream affordability) and Nordstroms/Bloomingdales/Saks (much pricier and trendier). I love them for their sales and Men's department; it's tranquil and concise.

Nordstrom's: Customer service + uber good Men's half yearly sale and anniversary sales. This is my go to for suits (when on sale). The Rack is good for the odd dress shirt or discounted shoes (I look here first for the gems)

Saks + Off 5th: This is my "top of the line" shop when I desire in-season shoes, pyjamas, and other random items. The Off 5th is as nice as L&T, while the main store (I visit their 5th avenue location) is to die for. The sales are amazing...$350 burberry trench coat for example.


Note: I'm a guy and thus am critiquing the men's departments.

Saks and the outlet have excellent quality. I have things from ten years ago, for professional wear that still are good for the office today.

It was disappointing in S Florida when Lord and Taylor left the Boca Mall. But, again down there is a different market, etc.

In general it is very difficult to find decent upmarket clothing in the south.

Dillard's and Macy's here locally. When I'm in a city with a Nordstrom, I will always shop there.

We have decent stores.....but no decent funds to shop in them with.

Unless I was going in to pick up a free sample, I haven't purchased anything in a high-end store in 3 years. My upgrade would be Target. No joke.

Glory, I hear ya . Used to love the FL stores tho- In Orlando, can you DM me how it is there? im debating on moving back to fl eventually.....I know they have a ton of shopping and things to do--that is missing in the region I'm in now.

I never realized how poor quality retail like "Belks" was....ug- its the same as Target but pple act like its high-end.
