Calling all men with a penchant for bespoke tailoring and finely fitted suits: Pockets Menswear has reemerged in The Plaza at Preston Center. After shuttering the esteemed Highland Park Village locale, former owner David Smith (who opened the original shop in 1974) has passed the torch to Andy Weil and Doug Duckworth, who have more than 46 years of combined experience in the business. “David taught us the value of the relationship with the customer,” Weil says. “We want to sustain his legacy while evolving to meet our customers’ needs.” The 3,000-square-foot boutique has expanded the made-to-measure offerings with new names such as Eidos Napoli, Oxxford and PT01 trousers (known for their fantastic details). “My favorite line we carry is Luciano Barbera,” Duckworth says. Gents can also spruce up their wrists here with a vintage Rolex from the exquisite selection available for purchase. 4000 Villanova, 214.368.1167; pocketsmenswear.com.
