Despite the shiny new shop fittings and a slight hike in price since its days as an Army/Navy store when you could still get a Carhart jacket here for less than $10 and a pair of 501's for not much more. Dave's is still one of the cheapest places in Manhattan to get your Levis, Lee, Dickies and Carhart.

A little shop tucked away in Nolita that sells jeans, jeans, and more jeans. We're talking all the latest brands (Seven for all Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, Earl, etc). It's a great little shop with friendly staff who don't overwhelm you and who can also recommend styles to you. (You'll need the help as there are so many models on offer.)
You have the time to try on whatever you want as the shop is quiet. They also have a lovely range of vintage belts. However, it's not the cheapest place for jeans (expect to pay $100 average).
