Sounds good deal.

"Trunk shows, I should add here, are not just for women. I went to one last month at Paul Stuart, the men's clothier in the John Hancock building. The definition of this trunk show is different from the classic. It's a chance to choose fabrics and styles not usually available and have shirts, jackets and suits made to your exact measure for less than the usual off-the-rack cost.

General manager Margi Godfrey tells me that this twice a year event is "unfortunately one of the best kept secrets in Chicago." Customer David Gross, a Chicago banker, is a regular at the trunk shows. "For Chicago professionals, this is really the best stop in the city," he tells me. He boasted of the savings on his just-ordered, made-to- measure suit for $1,200, where a similar one off the rack is regularly priced at $2,000. "

It's not a bad deal, but consider that the major retailers like Saks, Neiman, etc. are doing 70% off sales; it's not a mind-blowingly stellar deal.
