    SYMS is closed b****es - now what?!?!?

    I'm not jumping off a bridge or anything but I used to get nice Italian shirts there and now I don't know where to look. I'm slim and most US shirts don't fit well - too baggy, boxy cuts.

    Syms had it's own, er . . . milieu - but it also had actual Italian shirts, with a nice fit, and quality fabrics for a great price. They also had flat-front trousers (no fcking pleats!!).

    I don't need a suit but I do need to buy a bunch of new shirts and pants for work. Any suggestions on where to go? I prefer someplace in Westchester or nearby Rockland.

    Thanks - see I went to Marshall's and TJ Maxx but to me they had more low end stuff than used to be at Syms. Nordstrom rack - that's a good idea - there's one around here.

    Syms seemed to get a lot of European closeout stuff - I wonder where all that has migrated too . . .

    I don't know if there is a Bloomingdales outlet up there, but the one in Bergen County is money.

    Great deals.

    My wife keeps trying to drag me to garage sales - I tell her the only difference between a garage sale and garbage is the 15' to the curb and that one's on a Sunday and the other a Monday.

    They have this thing called the internet. You can buy things on it. At your age you probably know your size.

    I'm just saying.

    Maybe if you worked out more you wouldn't have to buy shirts in the gay dept. at Syms.

    You guys are freaking weird.

    Shirt threads, shoe threads, watch and jewelry threads.

    This place is starting to sound like casual conversations at a book reading club in Boca.
