    Chicago men might not be as swift as James Bond, but now they can suit up like him.

    The Italian-based brand of luxury fashion Brioni, known for clothing celebs Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in James Bond films, will open shop in the Gold Coast this fall, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The boutique, bringing the 007 to the streets of Chicago, will join dozens of other high fashion boutiques in the Waldorf-Astoria on Walton and Rush Streets such as Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs and Perchance.

    Brioni’s storefronts stretch around the world, including New York, Italy, Mexico and Dubai.

    Baum Realty Group leaders, who signed Brioni into the shopping corridor, said the new store cements the Waldorf-Astoria as a "premier luxury retail destination," the Tribune reported.
