I like Steinmart. It is a fun place to shop, but you need to be a bargain hunter and you need to be patient. The patience part comes in when you search for things. You have to look through a lot. But hey, my wife taught me to be a good shopper. You also have to be patient when you check out. There is not exactly a surplus of cashiers. However, having said that, I not that the people who work there are almost always unfailingly polite. I got a polo sweater there that had originally priced at $165 for $39. Yes, it was when they had a big markdown. The clerk was a little surprised that I had found such a good deal. The Italian brands that they carry are more along the designer lines -- setti ponti -- seem to be of good quality. The only thing that you need to watch out for is that sometimes items are not true to size. This seems espcially true for items made in China.
