In roughly 3,600 square feet in the financial district of the Loop, Paul Stuart has opened their second location in Chicago and their third location in the US. The windows are freshly washed and the building renovation which is connected to the new JW Marriott is now complete. From the shop design, Paul Stuart has maintained a classic townhouse look even in the bustling historical Continental and Commercial National Bank building.
Being recently opened, all products in the store are current season and crisp from the manufacturer. On the wooden shelves lining the walls there are shoes with names like Gregory, Jason, and Westfield that are displayed suggestively next to grosgrain suspenders and Phineas Cole suiting. Pieces of the shoe selection are exclusive to this Chicago store along with one of a kind accessories like a vintage rounded square iridescent shale cufflink and stud set.
The LaSalle Street store features a fresh and creative take on Paul Stuart’s iconic trademarks like their comprehensive collection of shirts, ties, small leather accessories, sportswear, men's clothing, shoes, and a devoted made-to-measure department.
