On­line shop­ping is great, but few things beat some good old­fash­ioned bricks and mor­tar. These are the best places to get a re­tail fix.


Cen­tral Union Square is the place to go for favourite big-name de­sign­ers. Pick up a bar­gain at Bar­neys or max out the credit card at the Gucci, Paul Smith or Saint Lau­rent bou­tiques. union­squareshop.com

Modern Ap­peal­ing Cloth­ing (MAC) has two out­posts – in Dog­patch and Hayes Val­ley – and is the place to go for hardto-find la­bels such as Dries Van Noten, Comme des Garçons and Wal­ter Van Beiren­donck. mod­er­nap­peal­ing cloth­ing.com
