Though it hasn't the breadth of Macy's, the panache of Barney's or the oomphy chutzpah of Bloomingdale's, something is always on sale at Lord & Taylor. This smaller, bells-and-whistles-free department store publishes sale catalogues weekly, with deals on everything from seasonal looks and outerwear to personal essentials like cosmetics and intimates. Find popular brands for men, women, and kids, like DKNY and Ralph Lauren, in addition to the store's own labels, Identity and Kate Hill for women, and Thomas for men. The store's especially strong in dresses for day and evening—often difficult to find in a separates-happy fashion universe—and feminine suiting for the office or after. Fashion jewelry, trendy accessories and an extensive bra/lingerie department round out the selection.
Lord & Taylor prides itself on offering real clothes for real people, so you won't find thongs, mesh or unwearable looks in the swimwear department—just grown-up classics.Men's Watches
Among the mirrored columns at this dependable department store, you’ll find dozens of men’s watches from affordable lines like Fossil, Kenneth Cole, and DKNY.Bridesmaids
