We are rated #1 by Zagat Survey in New York City and that's the world
That store is within walking distance of my hotel, what a catch. I will be sure to go in there now that I know that.

Dramatic much? But sure let's joke about committing suicide.

No shock you're still a teenager.

Yeah well good luck because i'll never spend that on clothes.

(I don't think the folks on this forum are comparable to the average joe, most teenagers I know would have $300 at most to spend)
I certainly didn't know you were 19, not that it changes my opinion. Though it does clarify why you have such an attitude.

No one is saying anything negative about $600, you asked about shopping and prices in 2 very specific locations, unfortunately in those markets $600 isn't a lot. Not for the amount of items you are hoping to purchase at least.

S/he said 10 or more pieces.

Ok well i've already made the decision on what will happen. I will listen to what you have said about the prices being different in each market but I find that hard to believe.

I will also look at the store near my hotel.

If you had worded your response the way you just did then perhaps I wouldn't have gotten so offended, the way I read it was that you were saying that $600 was like nothing when it comes to shopping.

You are missing the point. It doesn't matter to the store if you are a teen or 90 years old. Everyone is the same, the amount they have to spend is the only thing that differentiates you from another shopper in the store. If I am working in a retail store, the person looking to spend the most money is going to get my attention--regardless of their age.

I understand your point but $600 is not pittance in a store like Levi lol. Also I noticed most of the stores over there are having sales currently so perhaps it won't be as expensive.

I mean certainly you'd get less than in say Primark but not 2/3 things.
The Slim Lightweight Trucker Jacket | Egret | Levi's US
511

Anyway i'm happy with my research and will adjust my money accordingly when I get there.

I'm pretty sure they're both hell on earth in the summer. I wouldn't visit then, but that's because I live so close to both that a weekend trip is easy in the relatively slower/colder months.

I have lived and worked in NYC. The only good thing about August is that September is the next month, so there is a light at the end of the gates of hell.
