    gap
    guess
    h&m
    hollister
    lacoste
    limited
    lucky
    new york & co
    urban outfitters
    victoria's
    xxi forever
    pennys
    macys
    nordstrom
    sears
    carsons
    bloomingdales

    Theres more but I have no idea what they have inside, not a shopper ;)

    Those are just your average mall stores though so nothing fancy or expensive

    Well, actually, if you go http://www.shopwoodfield.com/IM/index.html you can click on different stores and they'll give a cheesy description and some will have links to the main store's page (right near the bottom) so that might help

    my_name pretty much covered it but when i was in america out of those i liked aeropostale, american eagle, abercrombie & fitch, forever 21, hot topic (although it depends on your style) and umm some more probably that i cant remember now.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Oh yes, with the hot topic. Good one. And if you're not really into it at first glance, dont get scared, they have some cute shirts and shoelaces with old school cartoons and stuff like that. Oh I just went on the website and they have fosters home for imaginary friends shirts!

    Go to a second way store, the one i'm working in at the moment have some real nice clothes and are very cheap..like $3 for a nice shirt, they just don't sell clothes, they got everything.

    What part of america you going to?

    Lucky you..your going in 2 weeks and i'm heading home in 2 weeks.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yeah all of those.

    Hollister and Abercrombie are really popular. I'd go American Eagle though, I loved their stuff and it wasn't as expensive as Abercrombie

    Wet Seal

    Hot Topic is hilarious.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    There's a good shop for surfing clothes but I've forgotten the name :banghead:

    ETA: I remembered! It's PacSun, anyone been there?

    :yes: I got my sister some really cute tight t-shirts from there - tinkerbell etc.

    If you can get to an outlet mall, you can get some stupidly low prices. There is quite a good one in Michigan City if you're anywhere near there.

    Pacsun is awesome! you can get all quiksilver, billabong, famous stars and straps, volcom etc stuff for half the price it is in england, i loved that shop.

    :D I know! I've got these cool o'neill surf shorts and they were on this rail for $15 and then when i took them to the counter they were like $40 so i wasn't happy and explained they were on the rail for $15 and the bloke just said well just this once and something to do with customer service i dunno and let me have them for $15, BARGAIN :thumb: I was well impressed.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Because the customer is aways right :yes: And if you're ever skeptical, just go to the young person who looks like they don't care, they'll usually give it to you for anything without even checking.

    But I'd stay away from outlet malls. They are usually filled with outlet stores, which is filled with the irregular and old stuff the normal store couldn't sell. The tripple lapel jacket or the 3 legged jeans, but the third leg will be a good 2 inches shorter :p

    And just say no to tj max. They may be alright there, but they all smell of moth balls and old peoples clothes here.
