270 Main St. Huntington, NY 631-423-1660
Smack dab in the heart of Huntington, Marshs is LI's largest men's specialty retailer and a mecca for well-dressed men. About 6,000 square feet of the spacious store is dedicated to womenswear, but more than half - some 9,000 square feet - is all for guys, with trendy designer jeans, sportswear and knits up front, ties and custom-made services in the middle, suits and shoes in back.
You'll find top designer names - Hugo Boss, Gucci, Etro, Brunello Cucinelli, Ferragamo, Brioni and Robert Graham, to name a few - and the sticker shock to go with them. But part of what you pay for here is service - which, like top shelf Scotch, goes down smooth.
Mitchells, the parent company that owns Marshs (and apparently forbids apostrophes), acquired Woodbury's Thomas Miller Menswear in 2010, taking on their top sales associates, including Miller himself. There's no hard sell, and salesmen seem to know many customers by name. That sort of attitude may make even less style-conscious guys feel somewhat comfortable.Hours: Monday-Friday: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
