The Chicago Collective is the Premiere National Menswear Show in North America, hosting top brands from around the world.    


Every February and August the Chicago Collective convenes in the ornate and storied Merchandise Mart, an architectural staple on the Chicago River for nearly 100 years. The show features a modern open-booth format with a layout that spans the entire 7th Floor – nearly two square city blocks!

Over 350 incredible exhibitors represent hundreds of the finest brands in men’s classic and contemporary apparel, accessories & footwear, making Chicago Collective truly a one-stop shop.

Beyond the impressive array of brand offerings, this show is never short on entertainment. From legendary parties to prestige whisky tastings to exclusive giveaways, there’s always something going on during our shows.

Our location in Chicago’s River North neighborhood means you’re steps away from destination dining, exhilarating nightlife, and some of the city’s most famous cultural institutions. The city is at your fingertips with our conveniently located hotels – plus, we’ve made attendance even easier with our Buyer Travel Reimbursement Program!

Whether you’re a first time visitor or a returning buyer who knows the bustling ins-and-outs of the show – welcome to the Chicago Collective.
