Critics say NV Boutique near Newark is the best place to find women's clothing upstate.

Best Men’s Casual Clothing

  Critics, upstate: For 24 years, local men have turned to Mystique Fashion Boutique for not-too-trendy, not-too-classic casual wear. Mystique shuns the expensive Calvin Klein designs of the world in favor of unique, upscale, affordable brands. In response to the economy, Mystique is cutting back on pricier names such as Jhane Barnes and Robert Graham in favor of up-and-comers like Seven Diamonds and Stone Rose, two brands of sports shirt that are easier on the wallet. And as always, staff at Mystique is eager to help you put your outfit together. That’s one of the advantages that come with a local operation. It’s also one of the reasons Mystique has been around for nearly a quarter century. (1408 N. Dupont St., Wilmington, 429-8755)
  Critics, downstate: Few places can match Quiet Storm Surf Shop for outfitting your bod for the beach. Besides great clothing, find sunglasses, sandals and surfboards. “I get my Tommy Bahama shirts, my Reef sandals and some other nice, casual, summertime walking-on-the-boardwalk wear there,” says local businessman Mike Meoli. All the most tubular surf wear, like Billabong, Rusty, Rip Curl, Volcom and O’Neill, can be found at Quiet Storm. (126 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2747; 33322 E.
