Fashion Focus, Chicago's Fashion Week, is still going strong—and starting tomorrow, there's something special in it for the boys. This weekend, Northern Grade will set up shop in Millennium Park (Staffers are still setting up as we speak. Exciting!)
Founded in 2009, the market hosts shopping events across the country, offering around 25 vendors each time. The common thread: all the goods are made in the U.S.A. This weekend's showcase will offer menswear from brands such as Glass House Shirt Makers and Goodlife, which is a new(ish) label founded by Michael Kors and John Varvatos veteran Chris Molnar. Take a peek at some of Goodlife's—er—goods, above. Then, get ready to shop. The bean-side pop-up is open from 11 am. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
