Sax Fifth Avenue opened two new levels catering to the "modern man" with everything from suits, ties and shoes galore to denim, outerwear, accessories and luggage.

With consultants dressed to the nines, the store boasts more than 500 styles. The sixth floor is dedicated to classic luxury menswear, featuring brands from Armani and Brioni to Gucci and Gravati. The seventh floor is more contemporary with a "denim bar" and brands like Alexander McQueen, Kenzo, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Givenchy. The store will also open a restaurant, Sophia's at Saks Fifth Avenue, on Jan. 31. 700 N. Michigan Ave.
