Chicago Fashion Shows Don’t Just Focus On Women

CHICAGO (CBS) — This weekend’s all about fashion in Chicago as Millennium Park and the Chicago Cultural Center are taking part in fashion week.

Ladies can find lots to stuff their closets with but there’s a special emphasis on making men look good too.

Fashion designer and former writer for “Details” magazine Michael Macko says American men are starting to look better, but there’s still a long ways to go.

“IT was very sad when you would fly into, for example, into Milan into Malpensa Airport and you saw the chic Italian businessmen and they are very trim and gray and navy suits with their very chic leather attaches and here is a plane full of Americans getting off in sweatpants, polo shirts and vests,” said Macko.

Jonathan Smith of Style Chicago says men are starting to step up their game a little bit.

“Even if you are going out with a blazer, the shoes look better the jeans look better, they fit better so that is certainly something you are seeing,” said Smith.

The fashion events continue at Millennium Park through the weekend.
