    Hello,

    I had a well deserved half day of fun today and got to visit Mr. Despos shop. All I can say is that he is the nicest, kindest Tailor I have ever met, and is just brilliant. No ego or anger and explains everything.

    His shop is elegant and beautiful, there should be a fee to just enter.[​IMG]

    I have dealt with a lot of tailors and there was a kind gentleman at Mark Shale about 9 years ago that passed away and disappointment for me ever since.

    I already changed my mind so that the day I hit a certain goal , I will not be going to Savile Row but Oak St.[​IMG]

    Thank you Soph and Chuck for the recommendation.

    I also got a chance to look at the Polo store and I love the suit displays, they also keep insisting that I am crazy in thinking Edward Green may be dropped. The shoe collection was not that great.

    Nothing really exciting at either Saks or Nieman Markus, but there was a bunch of Oxxford suits at the Filene's in some... interesting fabrics and about 100 Borrelli shirts.

    I'm happy that your day was successful and fun. Those of us in Chicagoland are fortunate to have Despos, within our midst. I hope to visit his establishment some day, soon.

    Ah, Filene's. No trip to Chicago is complete without steppinig inside. I once found a stash of vintage Rive Gauche eau de parfum, sitting on the shelves. Very, very difficult to procure. Reasonably priced, too. I wish I'd bought more.

    Is there a forum dedicated to rare perfums ?
