When thinking of the best places to shop, Manhattan, Kansas is not a town that usually comes to mind. Although Manhattan is not known as a hub for trendy clothing, there are still enough stores to meet the needs of every type of guy. Whether you’re looking for cowboy boots for Caturdays or business clothes for an interview, Manhattan has a place for you.
Pine & Plaid Clothing Company is a local men’s apparel and lifestyle store that just opened up this past August in downtown on Poyntz Avenue. They carry high-end K-State gear, jeans, pullovers, plaid button-ups, and even some business casual clothes.
If you are an outdoorsy person, The Pathfinder is another local store that is perfect for you. They specialize in outdoor equipment such as high-end bicycles, kayaks, and a wide range of gear and clothing for outdoor activities. They sell popular brands including The North Face, Columbia, Patagonia, and Chaco. The next time you are looking to take a camping trip or go on a hike, go to The Pathfinder to find all your gear.
Yee Haw Country Outfitters is a local store that is perfect for your Dirty Dawgs type of person. They have a large selection of cowboy boots to choose from, including purple powercat boots made for a K-State gameday. They also sell clothing (plaid shirts, jeans and jackets) and if you need a cowboy hat to top off your look, Yee Haw Country Outfitters is the place to go.
If you are looking for a retailer that sells trendy streetwear, Buckle should be your go-to. Buckle carries a variety of brands, such as Hurley, RVCA, Billabong, Puma, Under Armour, Levi’s, and much more. They also sell a lot of accessories including jewelry, shoes and hats.
Dillard’s is a huge anchor store also located in the mall that I am sure everyone has been to before. Dillard’s is the one-stop-shop for any guy going to an interview, attending the career fair, or needing to dress up for a formal. Dillard’s carries brands such as Polo, Ralph Lauren, The North Face, Tommy Bahama and Ray-Ban. Although Dillard’s is on the pricey side, it is the place to go for business clothes and accessories. Make sure to check for sales! Some weekends Dillard’s will have many clearance items marked with an extra 40 percent off. If you haven’t checked out Dillard’s New Years Day sale, make sure to put that on your to-do list.
