Time Out NY Please note: this business is now closed; keeps record of many old and closed venues. Mega bargain chain Filenes Basement partnered with another big-box store, Syms, to rebrand as one shop. The Upper West Side Filenes moved its mens department next door into what was formerly Syms, tripling the space in the womens department. With a shared ownership, a separate entrance for Filenes on 79th St, and a second doorway to Syms on 80th St, each store has an abundance of American and European designer steals. Score womens always-posh Missoni sweaters dipped from $600 to $40--$100, and Romeo and Juliet peasant blouses for just $40 (originally $88). The Designer Vault section offers high-end garb and accessories from Gucci, Prada, Burberry and more. On a recent visit, we scouted D&G animal-print bustier dresses for $285 (normally $700) and Ray-Ban Wayfarers clipped from $120 to $70. Wall Street gents should head to the Tailored and Tux department, which provides an on-site tailor with a two-day turnaround for alterations on any of the 3,000 suits in stock. Also available for the lads: suede Cole Haan jackets knocked down from $495 to $140--$300 and Polo Ralph Lauren tweed newsboy caps for a mere $18 (as opposed to $36).
