Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere opens to great fanfare at 9 East Huron Street, with 2,200 square feet to boast. On Thursday, November 14 guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while perusing the exclusive high-end clothier in Chicago.

This boutique for the haut monde offers business casual, business formal, formal and couture attire, all hand-sewn, custom-tailored garments from the finest fabrics. Except to be treated like royalty with services including a full service bar, a kitchen, and secret access for VIPs.

“I started Frederick Lynn in 2010 with the goal of giving my clients a private, calmer alternative to the classic retail experience; I visited their homes or offices in order to ensure convenience and efficiency,” says Aaron Comes, founder and president of Frederick Lynn. “With this new chapter, we bring our capabilities and customer service one step further with the same personalized attention in a centralized, beautiful space.”

“The space is designed to make clients feel at home,” shares Mr. Comes. “With elements such as lively artwork, specialty cocktails and catering from neighborhood restaurants, the environment is inviting and encourages clients to come back again and again.”

Founded in 2010 by Chicagoan Aaron Comes, Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere offers the finest custom-tailored, hand-sewn garments for men, women and children. Consultations are by appointment only and can be requested by contacting
