Selected Items - The Indochino Ultimate Spring Collection

Monday, April 8, 2013

I had been thinking quite a lot of what I should order from the recent Spring Collection. I have plenty of suits ready for the warmer weather, but I wanted a combination that can be used for more casual settings as well. 

Instead of the classic blue blazer & light chinos combo I went for the light blazer and navy pants version. Indochino has been offering their Boca Chinos for quite a while and keeps restocking them with new items, I decided it was time to give them a try. I just got a really nice slim fit Navy Blue one from GAP, let's see how they compare. 

Measurement Changes:
I will change my measurements around a bit as I want a slimmer fit on the chinos compared to my suit pants and perhaps the jacket 0.5 inch shorter than usual. Of course I went for the half-lined version of the jacket and I'm really curious to see how that will turn out. Other than that I kept it pretty basic with a solid blue shirt (with contrast inside cuffs), a blue linen tie, a pocket square and one of the new lapel pins. I find many of the patterns Indochino offers a bit overwhelming - not necessarily bad, just a bit too garish for my personal taste. 

Did anyone else order some Spring Collection items? What did you go for?
