Upper West Side Shops
Steven Alan Outpost
465 Amsterdam Ave., Upper West Side
We head to Steven Alan for the perfectly tailored yet lived-in men's and women's shirting that comes in an endless variety of plaids and stripes. Beyond that, it's the relaxed mix of pieces from designers like A.P.C, Isabel Marant, Rachel Comey, that keeps us coming back. The location in Tribeca is the flagship and the original, though there are now locations scattered around the city. As its name indicates, this outlet location is permanently on-sale.
Barneys New York
2151 Broadway, Upper West Side
Barneys buyers are famous for having an eye for spotting trends and designers—and then making them huge. The flagship store on Madison always has incredible, over-the-top displays, plus one of the best buys in the city. The shoe department, in particular, is great. There's an additional outpost in Brooklyn, and another in Chelsea.
