Indochino is an innovative online tailor where you simply supply a variety of measurements and get custom-made clothing. If you’re nervous about doing the measurements on your own, they provide a guide online and they also have pop-up shops around the country for a few days at a time, giving you a chance to meet with personal stylists who will help you find perfect, custom made-to-measure suits and shirts.
They were last in Calgary in the spring of 2012, and I popped in for a fitting:
The suit was sharp, and when it didn’t fit right on the first try, they sent it back and did it up again. From scratch. Now, if I could ever lose those 15 pounds I’ve gained in the past year, it might fit again.
Time to go and get remeasured, I guess.
Men who book a 30-minute appointment will be guided through the measurement and customization process. Suits start at $449, shirts start at $79 and all customizations are free.
Oh, and there’s a chance for you to get suited up for free too! Just book an appointment for the traveling tailor, tell me about it in the form below and you could win a 2 piece suit from the Essential Collection (valued $449)!
Traveling Tailor Calgary hours are: 8am-8pm weekdays, Saturdays 9am-8pm and Sundays 10am-7pm. Appointments can be made here.
After you’ve done that, make sure you enter another contest from Indochino which could see you scoop a $3000 wardrobe makeover. That’s enough for 4 suits, 10 shirts, and some ties. NICE!
