Thursday: Oxxford Spring Trunk Show

This Thursday Oxxford Clothes returns to Wingtip. The revered Chicago suitmaker is one of America’s most esteemed bespoke labels. They have been outfitting the most demanding gentlemen for nearly 100 years, and though they have long traded in classic silhouettes, they recently unveiled some more modern fits.

Robb Report noted the change in 2010: “The new Oxxford Suit, one of the few still made entirely by hand in the United States, features lighter super wool and cashmere fabrics, softer construction, and a sexier shape that consists of smaller lapels, higher armholes and leaner, flat-front slacks. In other words, all the elements of contemporary suit making that the best English and Italian clothiers have been stressing for years.”

Below are a few examples of what Oxxford can do–but the only real limit is your imagination. Oxxford visits Wingtip Thursday from 10am to 6pm. To make an appointment for a fitting, please email Bespoke Advisor Bruce Zuckerman at Walk-ins are also welcome.
