Slam Dunk
The lines stretched down the block and around the corner in anticipation of the opening of 32 South State, the first Jordan Brand store here. We still love him. This big location, a welcome addition to a revitalizing State Street district, elevates a similar concept store that opened in New York in 2014. Limited-edition sportswear items and sneakers are displayed around the industrial-designed shop, which has featured curated mementos from Jordan’s legendary 30-year career, including his first Bulls jersey, as well as pieces from local artist Hebru Brantley. To add to your experience, head to the second floor, where you’ll find Station 23, a premier strength and conditioning facility for elite athletes, and an area where you can customize your purchases with vinyl appliques, patches and image printing. 32 S. State St., 312.263.7274

Power Suit
The brainchild of owners Jivesh Toor, Diana McCarty and Jamie Pate, J. Toor combines the likeness of a bespoke suit shop with a ready-to-wear clothier. The trio’s new 2,680-square-foot storefront at The 900 Shops has become a menswear hub for locals and A-list celebrities, who love its made-to-measure suits (from $1,000), shirts and trousers made with luxury fabrics (think Japanese salvage denim and Irish and Italian wools). J. Toor also stocks a suave selection of ready-to-wear merchandise. 900 N. Michigan Ave., 312.291.8249

O Canada
Menswear e-shop Frank & Oak brought its sleek and minimalist aesthetic to Chicago this past summer with its second U.S. pop-up store. Rumor has it that plans are in place to stay put for a year or two. Known for its monthly menswear-collection launches, the Montreal-based company also offers a yearly subscription in which members receive a personalized box of items, selected by style advisors, to try on at home. By spring, expect an impeccable selection of modern classics including denim ($75 to $125), T-shirts and polos ($22 to $50) and jackets ($145 to $485). 1953 W. Wabansia Ave., 312.940.5067
