The Perfect Man Shop: Alton Lane

Last month, Mike and I had the pleasure of experiencing the newest Alton Lane store. If you’re a man and have a hard time shopping for the perfect shirt and/or suit pieces, look no more.

Alton Lane is a premium custom men’s clothing store. At least that’s what other articles will tell you. Our experience leads me to call it an ultimate man shop.

As you enter the showroom, it screams man cave. You’re offered a drink from their bar stocked with premium liquor, spirits and beers and you’re guided to a comfortable spot at the bar or tufted leather seating. If you chose the sofa, you’ll sit in front of a barn-wood paneled wall and under a cast iron deer bust, staring straight at the bar and huge flat screen TV. You’ll basically be building your perfect


If you’re a man in Chicago and haven’t made an appointment here, then I don’t know what type of man you are. This shop truly celebrates being a man in the right way; with a fully stocked bar and an offering of custom suit and shirt options.

I went in with my husband and it was great seeing how passionate and knowledgable Jason was about the product, services, and store. It’s really refreshing to have that kind of experience for a man. It was also great seeing my husband pick the fabrics, cuff style, thread, etc. with such excitement all while sipping on some quality bourbon. Who ever said men can’t be manly while choosing fashion?


If you’re looking for a nice experience to give any man in your life, make an appointment with them. He’ll love it and then they’ll have his measurements on file forever …so it helps you out in the long run too! I can’t wait to see my man’s customer made shirt we ordered!
