Does anyone know if the Oakbrook location is still open? I will be there Thursday and was going to stop in. I like that store to bad they are closing down.

don't really know but would be interested in how many stores they have left in Chicago.

really hated it when they shut Atlanta store down.

Sad. I left Chicago in '88.
At the time there were two major
independent trad clothing stores
in Chicago: Mark Shale, and Brittany, Ltd.
There was also an independent in Oak Park,
the name of which I forget. In addition, there
was Ultimo which specialized in very high-end Italian
clothing- also gone. The story seems to repeat itself as it has for
the past two decades, despite the so-called
"return of the suit"

^^ sad indeed. while checking store items over the weekend, I caught a conversation with a longtime employee. I asked him what's going on..he said the private equity owners decided to liquidate. not sure about the accuracy of this claim..

Hate to hear that. Loved their Dallas Galleria store, which closed a few years ago.
