Unboxing and Trying On the Indochino Essential Grey Blazer
If you’re on The Modest Man mailing list, you may remember getting an excited email from me about ordering a new made-to-measure blazer from Indochino. I was excited not only to buy a brand new custom piece of formal wear, but also to have gotten a great deal (it was on sale for $179).
Well, it arrived in the mail, and I wanted to “unbox” it in front of you. I am very happy with the coat and the whole experience – sizing, ordering, shipping and fit. The packaging was very nice, so I snapped a few photos while I was opening the box. Check it out:
And here are a few shots of me wearing it so you can get an idea about fit. My only problem with the jacket is that the sleeves are a tiny bit too long. This is probably my fault (I provided the measurements) and won’t cost much to fix. In fact, Indochino will reimburse you for minor alterations if you send them your receipt.
Like I said – and the above photo makes it easy to see – the sleeves are about a half an inch too long. They’re not showing any shirt cuff, which is a bad thing. I’ll have to get these shortened by a local tailor (this is a relatively simple alteration).
All in all, I’m very happy with this purchase. I hope these photos give you an idea of what it’s like to order form Indochino and how well made-to-measure garments can fit. If you’re still not sure about ordering from an online clothier, feel free to contact me with any lingering questions. I’d be happy to talk further about my experiences.
