It’s wedding season, and who deserves a pick-me-up more than the #1 man in your life? Whether that man is your hubby, father, brother, BF or BFF, I bet you know someone who is in need of a new look. Maybe he has been talking about picking up a new suit forever or wants to break out of his fashion rut. Well lucky for him, you are a well educated Philly lady and know just the place to take him! But hurry & make plans quick – you’ve only got one week! If you’re a woman looking for a suit, take a look at this guide to tailored women’s suits and creating your own custom suit experience.
Meet Indochino, the traveling tailor pop-up shop, here in Philly (1518 Walnut Street) now through May 27th.
Last week, I was able to attend Indochino’s media event. My partner in crime for the evening was my co-worker & bud Mike. As you can see, Mike is quite tall, so custom tailoring is essential to getting the perfect fit for a dress shirt & suit.
When we walked in the gorgeous pop-up shop, we were greeted with swatches of beautiful fabrics and colorful accessories.
After a bit of browsing, Mike was ready for his fitting! Eve is one of Indochino’s expert fit specialists and she took all of Mike’s measurements. After the fitting, Inchochino will store your guy’s measurements online, so all they have to do is pop on the website & order their custom suit.
After the suit fitting, it was time for Mike to pick out his custom shirt. If you book an appointment at Indochino while they’re still in Philly, you can receive a free custom shirt and gift set ($160 value) with your suit purchase (while quantities last)! Talk about a great deal.
Mike went with this fun purple gingham shirt. Once the shirt is picked, Indochino offers customization for the collar, pocket, lining, monogramming and more! I think Mike had a lot of fun picking out the features of his new shirt.
Since I didn’t experience the process directly, I asked Mike to tell us about his visit: “Being 6’5, it’s really hard to find a suit that fits perfectly! I had a great time getting fitted at Indochino, and am excited to order my first custom suit.” Thanks for coming with me, buddy!
Even if you can’t make it to the Philly event, you can still take advantage of Indochino’s awesome custom clothes for your man. Don’t know his measurements? Like Indochino on Facebook & they’ll send you a free tape measure, complete with an online video to help you get it right.
The pop-up shop is a welcomed, while brief, addition to Walnut Street. I hope the pop-up craze catches on & we see more and more brands take advantage of that space.
Let me know if you’ll be checking out Indochino this week! And tell me, what’s the most original gift you’ve gotten your guy? xx
