Where would you buy a waistcoat in Chicago

Where would you buy a waistcoat (you know, like the vest part of a three piece suit) in Chicago? I know that All Saints has two in the fall line, but they (like the department stores) are both basic black. Guy is looking for something a little more exciting, maybe with matching pants. I don't want the responsibility of sewing it myself (and pants are definitely beyond me, anyway). Custom is probably okay; online is okay; custom on-line is not preferred. He will not have the patience for going through vintage or consignment shops.

Announcing Your Dweeb Status at Ground Level

My new obsession is argyle socks. Please recommend places I can find quality argyle socks for men, suited to brown / tan slacks and jeans. $10 / pair or under preferred. Bold, bordering on obnoxious, colors get bonus points.

Help me find a classy pill organizer.

Looking for a classy pill case/organizer. I take 4 different prescription pills daily, at various times, often at meals, and will be taking them indefinitely. I'm not concerned with hiding my taking of pharmaceuticals completely, but the methods I've tried so far (carrying the original bottles, putting all the pills into one container and digging out the right one, getting one of those 7-day plastic organizers) can be unwieldy and makes me feel like a "sick person" (and telegraphs this to others). My dream pill container would be like an old-school stainless steel cigarette case, but with dividers inside for the different pills. I'm looking for something I can pop open, grab a pill, toss the thing back in my bag, and look non-medicalized (and maybe even a little classy) while doing it.
