A full-service men’s and boys' clothing store with more than six decades of experience, Mur-Lee’s stocks designer clothing brands and sportswear. The shop's talented tailors dole out complimentary hemming and trimming, ensuring each garment fits like a glove made from the skin of a doppelganger's hand. Shoppers can dress like the head honcho in Hugo Boss ties ($95) and knits ($75) and avoid confronting ironing-board phobias with Enro wrinkle-free dress shirts ($65). Breeze-permitting Berle cargo shorts give toasty legs a stylish alternative to going pantsless ($95), and versatile Left Coast tees work as well under a blazer or sport coat as they do alone ($55). Mur-Lee’s also stocks suits from the likes of Canali, Jack Victor, and Calvin Klein, as well as shoes from Allen Edmonds, Geox, and Hush Puppies.
There are two ways cars, SUVs, and trucks wash up at Squeaky Clean of Valley Stream. They either inch their way into the automated tunnel for a quick and painless scrub down, or they park in the garage for a thorough wash and hand wax. Detailing crews babysit rides for up to four hours, during which time they restore exterior shine and free interiors from dirt, debris, and mittens that don't belong in the glove compartment. Aside from sprucing up autos, the staff keeps engines purring with express oil changes.

Meanwhile, eyebrow shaping and threading services help artfully frame newly adorned eyes, and organic facials and makeup applications enhance faces with a vibrant, youthful glow.
