I would like to ask you who are living in or frequently go to Chicago where to find John Galliano homme. The stores I know which carry Galliano are Barneys and Saks so far in Chicago. If you know additional stores except the above, please let me know. I suddenly feel like buying a long black skinny fringed scarf from S/S2006 and remember that I go to Chiacgo with friends this weekend.

I believe that those are the only stores that carry his line. I know for a fact that Saks Mens Store has it.

I'll probably just go to the mall there and shop at A&F
Yes Oh my gosh please do not just come to chicago and settle for shopping at the Watertower Mall on Michigan Avenue and save your money from that Armani shirt..I mean its cool but you can do better in the Windy City
The Magnificent Mile(including Michigan AVE) has far greater stores but they can be alittle pricey. May I suggest checking out 6 floors of active wear at NikeTown..not just blah workout clothes...find all the trendy wear that you can wear in and out of the gym. Also if you are wanting to stick to a budget and want to shop some familiar stores...check out the Marshall Fields in the WaterTower..they have brands from Lacoste to Kenneth Cole to the Penguin collection to FCUK and there are even cooler shirts and jackets than that Armani one for less than the Label price.
If you have extra time go over into the Gold Coast and check out the Barney's New York. Upstairs there is a Barney's CooP for the the younger more hip generation and they ALWAYS have good sales on men's shoes...all kinds...go CHECK IT OUT
Hope this was helpful...
