There's nothing sexier than a well-dressed man, especially if that man is in a sleek black tux. Indochino, the much-loved traveling tailor company, is making a stop in Downtown, and the brand ain't leaving until they've made dandy looking gents out of all you men.
But why buy another suit when I already have one? you ask. The answer, my friend, is in the stitching. Every suit is 100 percent customized for you. Once you set up your 30 minute consultation (hurry, spots are filling up fast!), a tailor will jot down your measurements, flip through fabrics with you and create a suit unlike any other.
The suits start at $449 and there are 20 different ways to customize yours, from standard to advanced. You can also create a button down to match for $79. The pop-up will be open from February 8 through 16, and they're so serious about their sartorial mission, they're opening up shop at 8am during the week.
So yes, you can own a navy three-piece suit. Yes, you can coat the inside with blue bemburg lining. And yes, you can slim down that lapel a notch. The time has come for you to stop settling on ill-fitting work and evening wear and start looking like a boss. Suit up, gentlemen.
