A new store called Neapolitan is opening in Winnetka, they are supposedly going to carry:

Alexander McQueen
Bresciani
Brioni
Brunello Cucinelli
CP Company
Hickey Freeman
Incotex
Kiton
Lanvin
Lorenzini
Luciano Barbera
Michael Kors
Paul Smith
Prada
Pringle

I hope they make it, but I really wonder if they'll survive. I have no affiliation with them, but just thought that other forum members might like to know about the store.

Wow, is it geared at both men and women or mainly men?

Shoes?

I am surprised a local company would not carry Oxxford.

Doesn't George Greene on Oak St. carry a lot of these same lines?

I hope they'll have good luck. A lot of Chicago stores have gone under in the last 5 years with more rumored to be on the verge.

Winnetka is a very nice area indeed.

Why is it called Neopolitan?

There is only one brand from Naples!

They are destined to fail, I will say it here and now. They will not last more than 3 years.

I live in the area, it wont work. They will sell Prada, otherwise the Saks in Highland park has everything else.

Ill stop in and give a report.
