Boston Clothing Stores: You Won't Find These Duds on Everyone

Shopping for new clothes should be fun and allow you to showoff something different. With just a little research before you head out onto Boston's bustling streets, you can shop at some of the best clothing spots in the city.

These 10best picks offer a combination of great clothes and personal service, most are smaller shops with few or often only one location, and prices that range from budget to very expensive.

Get a real value at resale stores like the Garment District  or be a part of the crowd shopping on Newbury Street  where you can find reasonably priced women's fashions at No Rest For Bridget or designer duds at Daniela Corte.

The athletes out there will be thrilled to get American made sports gear at New Balance where this Boston brand's Boylston Street store sits just past the Marathon finish line and showcases their cool sports wear. 

Men will leave Uniform looking dapper in designer duds that make him look anything but average. 

Take a look at the list and you are sure to find at least one store to suit your fancy, but be warned you want to shop at all; and leave with heaping bags filled with Just a Little Something. Shopping nirvana is in your reach.
