When it comes to tailored clothing, everyone knows its all about fit.
Yet the truth is most of us struggle finding tailored clothing that fits off the rack. Off the rack clothes are designed to fit everyone, which ironically means they don't fit anyone. Using an alterations tailor is an option but aren't you sick of spending time and money to end up with something that fits better but never perfectly? Going custom would be ideal but, if you're like me, you probably always thought it was out of reach financially.
Enter Indochino. They offer a wide range of fully custom suits starting at just $349. Sure, you have to measure yourself and you won't get the benefit of an in-person fitting before the suit is finished, but they have very good tutorial videos to guide one through the measurement process and will pay for up to $75 of alterations on the back end. And if alterations aren't enough, they'll even remake the entire suit with updated measurements for free!
I decided to put Indochino to the test. Follow along in the video below to see me order a suit and enter the world of custom tailoring!
Stay tuned for Part 2 where I'll take a look at the construction, quality and fit once the finished suit arrives.
