It's been a number of years since I had some MTM suits made at BB here in Chicago. I've since grown a little (hopefully in style and not just size) and am thinking of going Bespoke.
Do any forum members have any experience with either Balani clothiers or Richard Bennett or can anyone recommend good bespoke tailor (suits, jackets, pants, coats,) here in Chicago.
MANY thanks for your help.

I haven't, but try Chris Despos on Oak Street.

Thanks, I'll check him out. Any one else have suggestions? Based on the thread and image he seems to be more "high fashion". I'm looking for a more conservative look with maybe adding some 30's elements.

I believe that Pucci is still in operation. He and Despos would be at the top of the bespoke list. Of course, you can also go MTM and be fitted at the Oxxford workrooms(arranged/paid through NM or Saks).

Pucci

34 East Oak Street
