I have been shopping at Boyds on occassion for the past five years and must say that they not only have wonderful clothing, but a wonderful staff. They are very warm and welcoming when entering the store and continue to assist you in any way possible. The clothes are made with great material that doesn't tear or shrink. The foot wear is so unique and comfortable, I have about 5 different pairs from here ;) I'd say to come check out the suits for they're unbelievable in fitting and adjusting. My personal favorite buy in the store are the scarves, they're beautiful! I couldn't imagine having a bad experience in Boyd's unless you're too young/small to fit in the clothing..otherwise take a look at the perfume, I could eat their fragrances.

I found the store accidentally while staying at the Rittenhouse Square. I asked the Rittenhouse Staff if there was a Saks or Neimans anywhere close to which they responded "no." They did not tell me about Boyds. Luckily I found it on my own. It is one of the nicest stores with the best selection of women's clothes, shoes and bags I have seen in a long time. Both dressy, business and casual all on one floor. And, best of all, they are not short on small sizes like Saks. The sales woman helping me in the woman's department was knowledgeable, not pushy and really did a great job. This store is a must for discriminating buyers - not bargain hunters. I would consider a trip to Philly just to spend the day in this store.

I'll start with the sales associate who "helped" me. I went in to Boyd's as a FIRST attempt to find a suit for my wedding. I told the staff it was my first visit and I would NOT be buying anything that day. Still, the pressure was constant for me to get fitted right away. I asked if I could see a differnet color shirt and the associate told me it was going to look horrible. I told him, "I don't know that much about color...," to which he responded, "I know you don't." His attitude continued to take on that same superior, insensitive tone. He also didn't smile at all and continued to tell me how long he'd been fitting men for suits every time I had a question or thought contradictory to his. The end result was that I put a suit on hold ($100 refundable deposite that I still haven't seen) and called a month later to cancel it. I went with Nordstroms in KOP where the sales person was warm, kind, and helpful. She will be attending the after party of my wedding. I met with her 4 times before I bought the suit and she was sweet and personable each time. I highly recommend you DON'T go to Boyd's. Not even to get ideas or brainstorm. You'll get pressured into trying on a suit that you don't like by a guy who doesn't care one way or another how you feel about the garment you'll wear on the most important day of your life. Heck, if that sounds good to you, knock yourself out!

Super fancy small boutique department store, with valet parking and lots of marble. Everything is impeccable. Has salon for women also. There is a cute cafe on the second floor that is great for lunch that is run by Brasserie Perrier.

If you are looking for quality mens & womens clothing, this is the place to go. Clothes are on the pricier sider, however, the clothes are tailored to fit and you will look like a million bucks! Customer service is exceptional and you will walk out of there smiling.

Okay so your man wants to feel like a star. Go here and shop to you drop. You must bring that cash. Get in where you fit in because this store is for those on baller status only. This is not for the boys, baby. This is Men only

One of the nicest men's stores I've come across in my travels. Very attentive and helpful sales staff as well. I would recommend but bring your high limit charge card.

Pros: Great selection of fine men's clothing. On-site tailoring and fast!

Cons: You pay for quality.

I have shopped at Boyds for men's gifts for the past few years. I have always been extremely happy with their selection and my gift receivers have always been ecstatic with their gifts. The employees have also always been friendly and very helpful. I recently stopped in for a birthday gift for my boyfriend, and I stumbled upon their new boutique, B3. I loved it! The whole store was so modern and I found great clothes for myself that I could not find anywhere else in Philadelphia. After shopping, I treated myself to a lunch at their Brasserie Perrier Cafe. I would HIGHLY reccommend Boyds' customer servce and selection to any Philadelphia resident or visitor.

I've shopped at Boyds a few times and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've bought a few suits and dress shirts - they were perfectly tailored. Additionally, the 3rd floor now has younger, hipper clothing, which is priced comparatively to what other retailers would charge for the same clothing. Plus, there's a cafe and Govberg Jewelers under the same roof - what's not to like?

I was pleased to find a great suit at this Center City Store for men, and when I picked up my alterations, they were impeccably done. I would recommend this men's store to anyone, and although it was a little pricey, I got what I was looking for.

One of the country's best men'swear stores right here in Phioladelphia. Yes it might be more expensive than the outlets or discount men's stores; I feel there is terrific value shopping here- especially when you factor in the free alterations and promotions that occur throughout the year. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for! --Quality, service and selection. I also made the mistake of taking my wife and now it's one of her favorites as well.

Pros: Value, Quality, Service

Cons: intimidating at first

Whenever I am there, I can't wait to run out of Boyd's. The sales people are so desperate for a commission, that they descend upon you in the first 3 seconds and won't leave you alone to just browse. The minute you step into another sales person's territory that person just follows you around telling you how wonderfull you'll look in something you don't want to buy and you can't get a minute's peace to enjoy the very limited selection. You'll pay full price for clothes that were on clearance racks at the mall.

Not good - I bought a sport coat and had it sent onto my home in NY after alterations were made - it arrived with sleeves WAY too short. I got it corrected locally on the promise that Boyds would reimburse me for this work - 2 months later - nothing.

I have to agree with the other reviews regarding poor tailoring. I have shopped at Boyd's for a long time and will continue to do so, but this is because of the clothes selection and not because of the service or tailoring. I have had to take suits back on at least 3 different occaisions to get re-tailored. On one time, the sleeves were obviously too short and the salesman, in talking to the tailor, said in a demeaning tone like I don't know how to wear clothes, "This guy likes his sleeves long." I had to chastize him and tell him that I like things to fit. On another occaison threads were hanging off the suit. But the clothes selection is great and it still is cheaper than Barney's in NYC.
