Old School Barbershop

Greetings fellow denizens. Any recommendations for a barbershop in or near the loop, preferably old-school (clippers, shaves, straight razor to the neck, blue fluid, good conversation, etc.)?

Just saw this thread...

Civic Opera Barber Shop fits your requirement nicely.

Philip D'Ciminna Barber Shop at 175 North Wells is also old school - no fuss, no hassle, good price for a cut and shave.

Both are old school Italian barbers.

Thanks zoid. These look like exactly what I'm looking for. I'll check out one of them later this week.
