Lamont Ellebb, CEO of Champagne Closings, Chicago and Surrounding Suburbs

by Chicago Agent

Number of years in real estate:

29 years

Describe your look:

I liken it to GQ: dapper, stylish and debonair.

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?

When the bow tie doesn’t match the pocket square

What is your favorite piece of clothing and why?

A very fashionable bow tie gives your look ultimate sophistication. It also happens to work really well with my nickname, “007 of Home Security.”

What do you consider a must-have accessory?


What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past?

I have worn wool pants and linen jackets together, but once I saw an image of myself wearing that combination, I could see how awful it looked.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

I love Men’s Wearhouse; they always take great care of me. Jojayden on 53rd in Hyde Park is where I go when I need to take fashion risks. I also love Erick Knowles Jr.’s suit store, GQ Gentlemen.

What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look?

The diamond Rolex watch my gorgeous wife bought me as a wedding gift

What is in your bag/briefcase?

A Gucci wallet, business cards, a cell phone charger and tons of ADT Security Gift Certificates … Gum if I don’t forget!

My closet is full of…

Suits and bow ties.

Suit: Tux; shirt: Men’s Wearhouse; shoes: Hugo Boss; watch: Rolex
