Way back in Early December, we let you know that Suitsupply was planning a burst onto Oak Street (at Rush). Since then, there've been few developments in construction or in promotion, yet, we still hear the buzz at the intersection for this Dutch seductress interested in keeping our pants pressed. Via the Racked tipline we were alerted that Chicago Magazine has said the store will open later this month. Don't get your hopes up just yet, boys. In fact, the construction on the space, like many other Chicago buildouts, is hard to gauge progress.
These photos were taken last week while we were lunching at Fred's on the roof at Barneys. You'll see that when we zoom in on the windows of the space, only the walls framed out (at least what we can see) and we think there's a folding chair in there. And then there's the fact that they still need to build that pippin' rooftop terrace GQ was talking about. According to Suitsupply HQ, the store, dependent on construction will open on June 26.
