When we designed our new Chicago store, we commissioned Speke Klein to create a custom version of their +Table for the space. With a built-in bench, the +Table is a slight twist on the table that graces our New York store. Follow its creation below.

The layering creates stability over such a large surface
The table was so large it had to be wheeled around on their largest shop cart

Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. While that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.
The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which means the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling your foot’s natural resting position.
The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers, and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.

Join us as we host Naoki Nakagawa, also known as Nacky, for his first trunk show in Chicago. Nacky makes some of the finest eyewear available. He’ll bring with him samples for sale, and will also take orders for MTO and bespoke.
Nacky began working in the eyewear world as a salesman. When he couldn’t find glasses he would wear himself, he decided to learn to make his own. He trained in Fukui, the home of eyeglasses in Japan. In 2004, after 8 years building a base of knowledge in manufacturing, designing, and retail, Nackymade was born.
Nackymade is all about glasses that fit well, are designed creatively, and crafted with love and care. Nacky respects the traditional way of making spectacles, and uses the best materials, such as Japanese plastic acetate and European antiques. He always tries to create something new and interesting, going so far as developing his own materials.

Join us Friday as we host bespoke watch specialists Titan Black in our Chicago store. Founder Luke Waite will be here to present the collection.
Titan Black takes the world’s finest watches and modifies them to create truly personal timepieces. They specialize in working on Rolexes, applying a variety of modifications to bring you an outstanding creation whose rarity and allure speaks for itself. The hands, dial, and body can be customized to your liking.
A key part of this process includes treating the watches with a diamond-like carbon coating. This gives the watch the desirable properties of diamond: hardness and durability. Uniquely, this process, as well as most other changes to the watch, can be reversed.
If you’re looking for a truly special watch, Titan Black makes them like no other. As a gift, even to yourself, it cannot be matched. Not only is a Titan Black wristwatch already branded a masterpiece in its own right, due to its legendary genetics, but on top of this, its superb finish and customized features makes it patently exceptional.
No appointment needed.
