There's something special about going to the shop that put the Fifth Avenue in Saks Fifth Avenue. For both men and women, the selection is so extensive that there's something to appeal to every palate. While the store's lifeblood is the more conservative, uptown customer, Saks has done a good job of integrating some of fashion's more daring brands into the mix, and it's possible to score cool stuff here without all the hauteur of some of the city's boutiques. That's because the real attraction at Saks is the service, which is excellent, all-around. Between the smiling salesclerk and the old-fashioned elevators, you might think it's 1950 again.
