We cover Fashion Week pretty much every year to report on the latest and greatest in women’s fashion from the runways in New York City. Or … at least the business slice of it.

Today the Council of Fashion Designers of America announced the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s coming in mid-July.

As one of our producers put it this morning, it’ll be “… a bunch of dudes not wearing socks, showing their ankles.”

Men’s fashion weeks already exist in cities like London, Vancouver and Los Angeles.

On an unrelated note: RadioShack filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday. We told you so.
