I'm sorry to hear about the shop closing.

I could use a suitcoat or two for work. That's a haul from Bolingbrook though.

Thanks everyone. Everything good is gone (micahel kors, CK, DKNY, etc) now its just some filler. But there are tones of pants and suits that are decent.

We had been in business for 103 years, but no more.

103 years. Wow. Sorry to hear.

The suit has definitely lost it's popularity over the years. I love wearing a suit to work, though since I'm the boss, I also have the option to wear jeans. So, that tells you how much I love wearing suits!! But, you just don't see people decked out in suits anymore (unless you're downtown).

Very sorry to hear. What's the plan for the future? New business, retire, change careers?

Not really, just because one manf makes a 44 suit a little different then the next. The only way to really get an accurate fit is to come in.

On site alterations are available.

Sorry to hear you are closing.

I headed there at 5 after work. Arrived at 5:40 and the doors were locked already though. I was hoping to get my Barney Stinson on!

That sucks to hear man. This economy is fucking over the small mom & pop companies. Wish ya said something sooner, as I'm sure we all could have rallied and got some suits sooner, and sent friends that live in city to spread the word

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Thanks man, this was a decision made as a move forward.

This is just to get rid of inventory and say thanks to the city that has supported us all these years.

Gotta be the boss Bug. Hardest choice every morning. Suit or jeans. Suit or jeans. Suit or jeans.

Actually it's mostly business attire most of the time...however, as you, I do miss business casual and throwing on some jeans and a polo from time to time is nice.
