Everything in Macy's, especially in the malls in not "overpiced and upscale". You can get plenty for $50. Even in the actual upscale Macy's in the middle of Manhattan everything is not over $50 or overpriced.
It varies by mall but Macy's is the one superstore that exists in most malls.
In some malls Macy's is on the low end of department stores when it's grouped with Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus. And then sometimes it'll be on the higher end when its grouped with JC Penny, Sears etc...
Either way, it's not a bad de facto place to get dress shoes, shirts etc... compared to other speciality stores.
people think department stores are expensive but they always have sales going on with their clothes marked down a lot. i think back in the day they all used to be more expensive than most other clothes stores but for a while now they all have sales that make them closer to Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Burlington type outlets.
you don't need a jacket or jeans ? and if you went while there was a sale youd have $10 left. I myself haven't bought anything there in a while as Ive already bought sale items from JCPenny before I make it to the Macys
