A Second Try at Indochino : The Navy Blue DB Suit

This review has been updated 9/8/17.

It’s been over a year since I’ve purchased an Made-to-Measure suit from Indochino.  Now I realized that there were many issues with my first suit made from them, even though I got measured by their own sales associates in their store.  The suit looked pretty good after tailoring (and  I did get another suit made from them) but I decided not to try them again until I had the money and desire for another suit.  Now that I’ve had sometime to learn more about fit, details, and my overall desired aesthetic, I thought I’d save up and give them other try!  I also realized that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe: I didn’t own a plain, navy blue double breasted suit.  So I deleted my measurements, got measured by my friend Spencer, and bought a suit on Black Friday.  It’s basically a whole new review on Indochino.

Crew and got their Onitsuka Tiger in navy blue suede.  At $50 bucks, it’s my new favourite sneaker.

Three weeks ago, Suit Supply teased their new ad campaign “Toy Boys” with an odd picture of a model’s sunglasses clad head peaking out from a woman’s mouth.  Seemed pretty funny and odd, just like the very effective Old Spice commercials.  However, this was completely wrong.  9 hours ago, they started unveiling their latest ad campaign on Instagram.  And it is terrible, not to mention very NSFW.
