Hello. I know that the question of "cheap clothing in NY" has been asked a lot of times, and that the answer is typically about stores of discounted designer items like Century 21 or Loehmann's.
I want to purchase some inexpensive, rather classic, items such as pants, shirts, sweaters and a winter coat/jacket. I actually plan to carry arrive with just a few things and purchase a lot of clothes. I care about quality but not brand names, and I'm weary that even with the discounts something like Century 21 will end up being unnecessarily expensive (ie I could get a very similar non brand jacket elsewhere for less).
Where should I go to? Macy's? JCPenney? Are the prices lower there than in Century 21? Are they also expensive places?
