So it’s the same situation every time. You have a special event coming up, whether it be a wedding, a graduation, a bar mitzvah, whatever. You realize you have nothing to wear that’s nice enough for the occasion because you’re a sloppy mess on the daily and only wear t-shirts and the same pair of jeans because like it’s Spring and what else are you going to wear, right? So you head to your local department store, try on an ill-fitting suit, shrug, and say yep that’s good enough for a party in a few days (or a few hours). I mean this is a scenario I’ve been through many a time so I just assumed you’ve all been through it.
Anyway, THIS time I chose to go about it the right way and made an appointment at a menswear “made-to-measure” suit company called Indochino at their SoHo location on Broome Street. You can either book an appointment to go in for a fitting or follow their 14-point measurement guidelines online which would guarantee a perfectly-fitted suit made just the way you like. The fitting took all of 30 minutes and it was quick and painless (no poking and prodding with any pins like you’d more than likely experience at any other suit fitting). I was able to choose exactly what kind of suit I wanted (from over 200 different styles) down to the number of buttons on the jacket, the shape of the lapel, the jacket’s stitching, and even customize the inside of the jacket which I did in a picture below. All in all it was a seamless and enjoyable experience and the suit looks amazing. See for yourself below!
