Ladies, who doesn’t love a man in a (great fitting) suit? But we all know how difficult it can be, sometimes, to get our loved ones excited about wearing a suit, which is typically viewed as uncomfortable, stuffy, and in most cases, expensive.
This is where Indochino comes in.
Indochino aims to revolutionize the custom suit process by making it easier and more affordable. Using a strictly internet-based retail store, consumers are able to create an online account, submit their measurements (yes, Indochino breaks down how to do that too) and shop away in the comfort of their own home.
The real draw, however, is the options available for customization. Of course lapels, vents, buttons and pocket choices are included. But details like functional buttonholes (which are also available in contrast stitching), suspender buttons, lining options and monogramming makes Indochino suits comparable to those of bespoke clothiers. Shirts can be customized with the numerous collar and cuff styles, monogramming and more; while the lining of your choice can be added to the great selection of blazers and trench coats. With suits starting at $379 and shirts starting at $79, there’s no need to break the piggy bank to obtain tailored clothing.
Luckily for Chicago, Indochino is making its way to the Windy City to host their first-ever U.S. popup shop!
The Traveling Tailor, held August 14 – 20, allows customers to book an appointment at the Great Hall in Union Station to get measured, feel the fabrics, walk through all of the customization menus and shop the wide array of accessories such as ties, pocket squares and cuff links with your own personal stylist. To seal the deal, Indochino will be providing a complimentary Suit Utility Kit with purchase.
Check out the video below to learn more about the extraordinary concept behind the Traveling Tailor.
This is the perfect opportunity to treat your loved one to an unforgettable suit-shopping experience. I say make a date out of it. I certainly will!
To celebrate their Chicago invasion, Indochino is giving away a suit from their Essentials collection to one lucky ChiTown Fashionista reader. That’s right! A free custom suit for your favorite man.
