Saks Fifth Avenue
717 North Michigan Avenue - What designers are here?
: 737 North Michigan Avenue - Is it more upscale designers?
: 900 North Michigan Avenue - Do they sell just accessories, or menswear, too?
: 919 North Michigan Avenue - How big is the selection of menswear?
Barneys New York
: 25 East Oak Street - And what designers are here?
: 30 East Oak Street - Do they sell menswear here?
: 111 North State Street - Any sales going on? Good service?
And where else should I visit?
Saks Fifth Avenue: 717 North Michigan Avenue - For the mens they have Miu Miu, John Galliano (the normal stuff) Ermenegildo Zegna, Gucci shoes, Cartier Bags, and other designers...its across the street from the womens store. Its only 3 floors for men.
Neiman Marcus: 737 North Michigan Avenue - They have more of a selection of designers for men and such..I dont think its more upscale than any other place, its just bigger
Gucci: 900 North Michigan Avenue - They sells menswear and they have a nice selection. They also have the video from the mens show playing. I love the bags they have, and at the back its a wall dedicated to shoes
Louis Vuitton: 919 North Michigan Avenue - I was just in there 2 days ago and it was a nice selection. Its quick small I would say like 30 pieces. Its from the SS runway too and its a lot of nice pieces. They have MANY shoes for men though
Barneys New York: 25 East Oak Street - Many great designers! Balenciaga, Dior Homme, Dries Van Noten, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, just to name a few! They sell the things off the runways
Prada: 30 East Oak Street - Its directly accross the street from Barneys and they have menswear. The whole 3rd floor is devoted to it. They have the things off the runway and a whole wall devoted to shoes. I also love the coats and bags
Marshall Fields: 111 North State Street - They have their 13 hour sale often but its a big store. Its quite historical. They do carry some big designers for men, but like the highest in sportwear is Dolce and Gabbana and Ralph Lauren. They have Armani, Burberry, etc...but its only in suits
Giorgio Armani has nice things they are a little further than Neiman Marcus..I dont know the exact address, but its right by the water tower. They have menswear on the 1st floor and womenswear on the 2nd. They dont sell Emporio Armani unfortunately. Also directly next to Armani is Bottega Venetta. I havent been here in a while, but I believe they just carry accessories
Since ur a guy I think that you should visit a place on Oak street called Chasalla...they have Italiana clothing like D&G, Versace, Moschino, and Hugo Boss for men. Actually its the only place that has Versace in chicago. There is also Hermes on oak street. Finally I think that Hugo Boss on Michigan Ave is nice. Its further south of Michigan Ave once u cross the bridge its like a few steps away on the left side...Its a storefront, but it leads into a mall which also includes Armani Exchange
Well I hope this has been helpful to you
