A Man's World
Neiman Marcus Man's Store
As far as department stores go, with over a century of retail history behind it, Neiman Marcus has firmly established itself as one of the foremost luxury destinations in the US; the name on the door becoming synonymous with the high style within – but perhaps nowhere more so is this true than in Chicago, where the Magnificent Mile flagship has been standing almost 30 years. Having recently undergone an extensive, multi-million dollar nip/tuck, NM Michigan Avenue launched this spring its gleaming new ‘Man’s Store’, doing away with the previously disjointed men’s areas and installing a full storey fitted with dark wood and marble flooring, complete with an open bar and plush club room with a flat-screen TV for the all-important game time.
New additions to the NM designer line-up are names like Kiton and Ralph Lauren Black Label, which each boast a ‘store-in-store’ alongside labels like Tom Ford, Gucci, and Ermenegildo Zegna. On the rack, the 200+ brands range from contemporary smart-casual (John Varvatos and Theory) to the edgy and fashion-forward (McQueen, Rag & Bone), while the selection of shoes, leather goods and luggage come from names like Ferragamo, Burberry, and Tumi. And while the hubby will be occupied for hours in this temple of menswear, ladies can look forward to August, when the brand new women’s shoes department debuts! One stop power couple shop!
