Indochino, the pioneer and global leader in online custom menswear, announced today that they will open a Traveling Tailor Pop-Up Shop at 1518 Walnut Street from Friday, May 10th through Monday, May 27th. The shop will be open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturdays and from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Sundays.
Indochino’s custom suits are of the highest quality, created by the same school of highly skilled tailors, using the same superior fabrics and techniques employed by well known high-end fashion houses… at a fraction of the price.
Typically, an Indochino customer shops online, selecting the exact design details that he desires for his custom suit or shirt. When he is ready to place his order, he then creates a measurement profile through Indochino’s online step-by-step measurement process with easy to follow videos. It only takes 10 minutes and can be done from the comfort of home, with the measuring assistance of a friend.
Following much success in New York, Chicago, Boston and Washington DC, Indochino has decided to bring its Traveling Tailor Pop-Up Shop <https://www.indochino.com/traveling-tailor> to Philadelphia, where their expert staff will take measurements and provide each customer with personal styling. Customers will learn which customizations work best to complement their specific body type, which colors are great for their skin tone, which collars will suit their face shape. Online measurement profiles will be created at the event; after which, creating a custom wardrobe of suits, shirts, outerwear and chinos is simply a click away.
Customization of lapels, number of buttons, vents and monogramming is available on all suits for no additional charge!
