"We may not be able to topple New York with it’s prominence as a port of textiles and trade. We may not be able to overshadow L.A.’s fashion scene with its scientifically and artificially enhanced people and superstars," said writer Shannon Cason at a special Paper Machete at the Green Mill. But he has one idea to spice up Chicago: The men should wear more suits. Read an excerpt below or listen above:
New York has Fashion Week, a week-long extravaganza, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, showcasing the world’s top design house selections for the upcoming season. Chicago has Fashion Focus, a week-long celebration in its eighth year highlighting Chicago’s thriving fashion industry, sponsored by Dunkin Donuts. (Naw...it’s not sponsored by Dunkin Donuts...I said that to be funny.)
But Chicago has lagged behind other major cities on the fashion-conscious index. In a recent Huffington Post ranking of The Most Fashionable Cities, Chicago placed 6th. Not bad, but behind: New York; Los Angeles; Irvine, California; Miami; and Dallas.
F***ing Dallas man . . .
