Check out on this page our favorites for clothing
for the whole family in Los Angeles County. Please also see our new page "Clothing, Fashion / Orange County" for deals in the OC. Everything at these stores and boutiqes and discounters is first quality unless we
note there are seconds or flaws. Always check with the stores for their return policies. Some discounters do not
allow returns, and exchanges only. Some discounters are selling seconds or clothing with minor flaws, so check your
merchandise carefully. If the clothing is sold as "first quality" you should not find any flaws. Many
discounters sell clothing that is one or two seasons "old." But today, with the slow economy, many discounters
are selling current merchandise that the factories could not sell to department stores or high end retailers so these top
label clothes find their way to discounters more quickly.
Update July 7,
2016 Hari Casuals discounts naural fiber clothing at its factory store at 1410 South Orange Avenue in Los Angeles.
The linen clothing is high-quality, follows current trends, and is made in Los Angeles for distribution to high-end boutiques.
But at its factory store you buy factory-direct at deeply discounted prices. There are sales when even the factory discounted
prices are cut. You will find casual clothing as well as dresses and there is a wide selection of colors and sizes. These
linen garments are machine washable and pre-shrunk and designed for a long life. Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

MY FAIR LADY FOR SPORTSWEAR, CRUISE WEAR, RESORT WEAR
24, 2013 Those of you who remember my Money Reports on KCAL9 will recall that I often reported on the great deals

Fair Lady. Well, My Fair Lady is still going strong with women's fashions including sportswear, cruise and resort
styles. My Fair Lady carries brands including I.C. Collection, Damee, Clara
Sun Woo, Jess & Jane, Mesmerize and Liverpool. You will find the best prices and owner Jonathan Rick
promises that you will "always get a flattering fit and a stylish look." And for those of you who can't make

Exit, south of Oxnard Street) then you can shop on the new website for the store -- www.ShopMyFairLady.com -- and have your order sent to you. Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

EDGE WEARS AND DONA MICHI STORES FOR DISCOUNTS ON LEATHER
Update March 14, 2012 This chain of discount clothing stores
for men, women and kids operates under two names: there is the Edge Wears store in the Stonewood Mall in Downey, and
then there are the Dona Michi stores in Montebello at the Montebello Town Center, and in Santa Ana at the Main Place mall,
and in Victorville in the Victor Valley Mall, and in National City at the Plaza Bonita mall.
What makes Edge Wears and Dona Michi different is that they are owned by the manufacturer and distributor of fine
leather goods including leather jackets and coats and motorcycle jackets for men and women and for kids, too. You will
find that these stores are actually outlets for the wholesale lines that are sold to other retailers and for the most part
you are buying factory-direct at Edge Wears and Dona Michi for less than wholesale prices.
You will find leather jackets -- all first quality with no defects -- starting $20.99. You will find that the
"high end" leather jackets that sell for $149 in the Edge Wears and Dona Michi stores can sell for as much as $450
at other retail stores.
There are great deals on accessories including leather hand
bags that are priced at about $10 each. Get men's and women's belts at $5 each. There are deals on leather wallets.
There are fashion shoes for men priced at around $20 a pair. And there are fashion jeans and licensed major league basefall

DEPARTMENT STORE CLOTHING AT JUST 99-CENTS PER GARMENT
Update January 4, 2012 I didn't know what to expect when I was told that there was a
store in Huntington Park selling clothing at 99-cents per garment. What could they be selling at that price-- rags?
No-- they sell name brand clothing and not just old tee shirts. There are sweaters and jackets and hoodies and shirts
and sun dresses and name brand jeans and clothing for women and junior sizes, and kids clothing and clothing for guys too
-- and everything is 99-cents per garment.
Is this possible? Yes, when the
store is a liquidator of department store returns, factory overproduction, clothing from previous seasons, merchandise from
other retailers who need to closeout and move-out previous season's merchandise, and other liquidations.
The company is called 3-B and everything is 99-cents per garment. Yes, they do carry closeouts
on perfume and some other items that are slightly higher priced -- but the clothing is always 99-cents per garment.
Nothing is worn or used, but you might find garments that were marred or marked while being handled so do examine the clothing
carefully. This store is open 365 days a year except for this year -- 2012 -- when it will be open 366 days because
it's a Leap Year. Yes, they're open on holidays. Our TV show report is below. There is metered parking on
the street. Sorry, no phone number -- they told me that they're too busy helping customers to take phone calls.

BUYER'S BRAND OUTLET
ON PICO IN LOS ANGELES
in a while we stumble on a small outlet with legitimate deals. Buyer's Brand Outlet is at 8646 West Pico Boulevard in
Los Angeles, between La Cienega and Robertson, and it has a small parking lot. Call them at (310) 652-6363.
If you enjoy shopping, you will enjoy Buyer's Brand Outlet
for its low overhead, bargain shopping environment. There are men's designer suits by Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren
and Hugo Boss with department store labels sewn into the garments and these are now priced at only $69.95. Designer
sport jackets are less, or course. There are also name brand shirts and ties.

at $10.95 each piece. You will also find fashions by Liz Claiborne, Michael Kors, Alfani, Kasper, Guess, DKNY and Rampage.
Now some important shopping tips.
First, there is a small parking lot so avoid the usual rush to this outlet that happens around 5pm. Shop earlier in
the day when the parking lot has plenty of spaces. Second, the outlet is open Sunday through Thursday; they close early
on Friday, and the outlet is closed on Saturday.
will find racks of merchandise direct from department stores as well as shipping boxes with designer fashions from department
stores. Yes, suits and jackets are arranged by sizes -- but be prepared to spend some time hunting for your deals.
One more tip: they have a "store card" that offers
an additional 5% discount at checkout. Ask for the "card" and if they don't have it-- ask for the extra 5%
off. Tell them that I told you to ask for the extra discount.
