Steve-- i can't believe you like the mens saks in chicago the best.. the main floor is much smaller, less furnishings, and less knowledgable salespeople, in my opinion ("do you have any products by Acqua Di Parma, maybe their leathergoods?" "Who? never heard of them.") than the Wonder of Saks Mens Store in NYC. i mean, with a section devoted to Brioni, one to Oxxford, Zegna....not to mention the excellent furnishings, and the huge selection. in my book, Saks is one small step behind Bergdorf Goodman Men, which is untouchable. have to admit, Wilkes in SF is a really fantastic store, altho everything made for them had a softer shoulder when i was there last (inc brioni and DB suits).

Russ: I believe in summer of '01. Was it a stand alone men's store separate from the main one when you visited? Anyway it's tough to call...I really think it depends on what's bought for that season. I was just in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and they had an unusually good selection. I thought the dress shirt and tie inventories were highlights, and better than NYC's when I was there in May. Tailored was better in NYC, and sportswear was a tie (pardon the pun). More traditional casual wear in NYC, and more fashion forward at Chicago. Plus they (Chicago) carried a full line of Kiton. Only Sak's I know to do so. No Brioni- all at Neiman's next door. LARGE Oxxford and Brioni store-in-store at Neiman's. Let me know next time you go to Chicago. Have I got a couple of places for you, heh heh...
