Others may have better recs, but I've got to say, there's not much in terms of local, awesome menswear places (i.e. not Nordstrom or Brooks Bros.). The places I do know of sell the usual midwestern-favored brands (Samuelsohn, HSM, Hickey)—one in Hyde Park called 45/46 has HSM, Boss, HF, Allen Edmonds, plus various casual wear brands, but isn't much to write home about; and one downtown called Hunt Club Clothiers carries Samuelsohn and Alden (plus others, probably).
