Windy City Style: The Fifth Avenue Man (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Men, take note. You have yet another shopping outlet down Michigan Avenue housed in the remodeled sixth and seventh floors of the Saks Fifth flagship store.

An express elevator will take you right to the sixth floor which highlights luxury brands including Brioni, Ermenegildo Zegna and Salvatore Ferragamo. This level is dedicated to suits and formal wear plus an elegant and intimate bespoke suit studio for one-of-a-kind pieces.

A level up on the seventh floor features more casual and contemporary designers including Paul Smith, Dolce and Gabbana and Burberry in a more modern environment compared to the sixth floor. Slick white details, chrome and pop art contrast to the warm woods of the level below.

The highlight of the new Fifth Avenue Man is its new restaurant and bar, Sophie's, named after Sophie Gimbel who was lead designer at Saks for nearly 40 years. Recently opened at the end of January, Sophie's menu is "globally influenced yet decidedly American" with its small plate selection that features sashimi of shaved fluke with blood orange as well as its large plate selection including pink lady lobster salad and Scottish salmon.

Check out the beautiful details of the newly opened store in the gallery below!
