There's More to Men's Suits Than You Think There Is

Still flaunting that power suit you bought at Men's Warehouse in '95? Don't make us throw cufflinks at you. There are so many details to consider when buying and tailoring a suit. What lapel best fits your shoulder frame? Is a single-button jacket appropriate for work, or should you go for a double-breasted? How the F-iretruck do you wear a pocket square? If only there was some magical suit fairy that could walk us through the process...

Alas! Enter Anthony Trinidad, Indochino's retail merchandising manager and suit-fairy at large. With a flick of his wand he's defogged the entire process for us, from investing in the right fit and pattern for your body type to choosing the appropriate fabric for this smoldering Miami heat (spoiler alert: wool is your friend).

As we warned you, Indochino will be in town until Sunday, February 16, and this traveling tailor company isn't leaving until its made a dapper Don out of all you average Joes. So without further ado, we invite you on the suit fairy express to learn everything you need to know before you book an appointment with Indochino's tailors. Because after all, being a gentleman is all in the details, right?
