When you are leaving the country it will be your destination city, which will be in England.
You will go through British customs at whatever airport you land at in England.
You go through customs at the airport from where you board a flight that leaves for a foreign country, in your case Chicago. Going abroad always means going 2 customs, once at the departing country, then at the arriving destination country, both countries have to keep track of who is leaving and who is entering.
The answer given by longliveabcdefg is not correct in your situation. While many countries have customs checks upon departure, the United States is not one of them -- passengers leaving the US need not go through customs and immigration until they reach a foreign destination where it is required. In the specific instance asked about in this question, you will not need to go through customs/immigration until you reach the UK.
Someone gave Nako a thumb down, but the answer is exactly correct. There is no passport control or Customs leaving the USA.
As explained here largely, the USA (and Canada for that matter) DO NOT have Exit Customs Control.
Welcome to the UK, a country unlike the US. Unlike the US because there is no such thing as border preclearance, a tyrannical practice performed by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. You will go through customs upon arrival in the UK.
it will be when you get to englad of course. customs are for when you arrive in a country different from you take off country. you do have to go through customs in chicago, cause ohio and chicago have the same passports and nationality.
