The Fifth Avenue Man, Saks Fifth Avenue's new store for—you guessed it‚ men—opens today. Occupying the fifth and sixth floors of the department store's Michigan Avenue flagship, the dapper store stocks shoes, bespoke suits, and contemporary fashion; there's also an on-site restaurant serving globally inspired bites.
Saks general manager Doug Moss isn't shy about his fondness for the new spot. "I am so proud to say that we are the preeminent men's store in the Midwest," he said, citing a wide selection and top-notch service as the store's standout factors. Since we had him, we also asked Moss to weigh in on the big menswear trends for the season. He named nautical stripes, blues and greens, and "a strong emphasis on prints."
