Look for places that make stuff for the horsey set. Tack shop??

A tack shop sells horse related gear- saddles, bits, stirrups, reigns, that kind of thing. If you wanted just a piece of bridle leather, a place that sells, makes, and repairs things like bridles would be a decent place to look.

That's not his coat, he says his are double. Would need pics of his actual coat to see what he's actually describing.

Try SuitSupply which is just north of the loop, I believe they do quick tailoring as long as its not major stuff. Also their suits are pretty decent quality, especially for the price. They seem to be #menswear and StyleForum approved.

Any suggestions on trim fit suits in Chicago? I was looking at Nordstrom and found this which I liked a lot: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/boss-black-jam-sharp-trim-fit-grey-virgin-wool-suit/3023542?origin=category&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=&resultback=200
It seemed to fit the bill and I think I could get Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue to tailor it pretty quickly...by Friday at the latest I'm hoping (or would a non-Nordstrom tailor be better...?).

What are the black cap-toe oxfords (or mid-gray slacks) of brown shoes? Varsatile, conservative, timeless, seasonless, ubiquitous.

Brogues.

You can wear mid gray trousers every day and it won't be noticed. They're not particularly loud, and certainly not loud enough where they'll stand out if you wear them several days in a row.
Medium gray is a conservative color, and THE default odd trouser for most men. If they own nothing else, they own a blue blazer and gray trousers. We're not talking a neon green with red checks here, though I'm sure somebody on this forum owns a pair of those.

Thanks for the great help guys. I was really torn but eventually went with these in medium grey:

They seem pretty dark as I didn't want a light gray. I guess charcoal will have to wait.

Look like Allen Edmonds from last season, maybe the one before.

Looking for this piece. Anyone knows the designer?

#2. It probably has to do with the fact that your jackets are too fitted.

 

No, this is just an example of what I want (but with a double vent). This picture shows a smooth back, which I want to achieve on my suits through tailoring. Is this possible?

Yes, it is possible, but the smooth back is dependant on how slim you want it as well as proper balance.

Do you get free returns/exchanges if you order from the Allen Edmonds Shoebank (seconds)?

 

And do you think

in English Tan somewhat resembles the BB Strands

Doesn't have to be a perfect match but I feel that it works nicely. I'm open to other opinions though.

Perfect, and actually pretty close to what I meant as charcoal, they should serve you well.
