CHICAGO — Men of the 312 can now suit up like 007.

Italian men's fashion house Brioni, which has clothed Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig as spy James Bond, is set to open shop in the Gold Coast this fall.

The boutique, moving into 12 E. Walton Pl. near the Waldorf Astoria, will offer suits and men's accessories. Brought to Chicago by Baum Realty Group, Brioni has storefronts around the world, from New York to Dubai.

Janika Brenner, vice president of Baum Realty Group, said Brioni will fit in with the "new landscape of ultra high-end retailers" on Rush Street.

The boutique will be a neighbor to high-profile clothier Yves Saint Laurent.
