The Indochino Holiday Collection: A focus on velvet

Saturday, October 26, 2013

With the big sale just over, Indochino is not losing any time and follows up with a new collection and a new traveling tailor stop in Vancouver right away. The Holiday Collection focuses on heavier suits and blazers, many of them made of velvet. Velvet suits have been regularly featured on Indochino for the last few years, but were usually introduced later in the year. Having them available already now should make sure you receive them in time for Christmas, if you plan on suiting up for the occasion.

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Indochino lowered their prices again and now discounts reach up to 30% for suits and 50% for accessories. Selected Indochino suits are now availabe for just $349, blazers for $244 that is almost the price we had two years ago. Telling from experience, this is probably a unique occasion to get a suit at the lowest price possible. Most other promos will include freebies and less discount overall. Sale ends October 21!

Indochino Daily Hookup 20% off
Get 20% off with The Daily Hookup - click image to get to the deal
Gentlemen, another decent deal. Not only do we have a very nice sale going on (article here, sale here), we also got a nice deal from The Daily Hookup

I first stumbled across The Daily Hookup last year when they ran an Indochino deal (suit, shirt and tie for $320). We all know these kind of Indochino deals don't exist anymore, but today you can still get an Essential Suit, a shirt, a tie and a pocket square for $499 - that's a total value of $636 and savings of more than 20%. Click here to get the deal.

Overall, a good deal if you are interested in a whole outfit - the premium compared to only buying an Essential Suit for $449 is minimal. As usual, if you want to buy a more expensive suit, the difference has to be paid at checkout. If you are just looking to get something for the lowest price possible, I would recommend checking out the sale with suits available from $399

Indochino Sale 50% off

I feel a little change in strategy coming up, didn't personally expect any bigger deals until Black Friday 2013 later in November. However, I am happy to see I was wrong! After we had a couple of lukewarm deals, Indochino announced a proper Sale today and significantly discounted a number of absolutely great suits, blazers and accessories. Usually, we see discounts on suits that are out of season, but this time the sale is actually on the latest collection and the suits will be perfect for late winter.

You can see the full selection right here at their Sales Page.
As you can see, the discounted items are roughly grouped into 3 categories.

Indochino October Sales Category 1 - 2-piece Suits and Blazers - 20% off
Get a number of great Tweed and Flannel Suits (see images) for just $399 instead of $499. The cheapest blazer now goes for just $279.

Indochino October Sales Category 2 - Accessories up to 50% off
Indochino had introduced a number of completely new items with their last collection and many of these are now heavily discounted. Cashmere lined leather gloves are now $58 instead of $89 (almost 35% off) and their flat caps have been reduced by 50% to just $35.

Many accessories now reduced up to 50%

Indochino October Sales Category 3 - 3-piece suits up to 20% off
Most of the suits are also available in 3-piece versions and are discounted more than $100. You can now get them from as low as $455. 

Overall, a great sale, unexpectedly and with a really good selection. $399 for a those flannel and tweed suits is a really decent price. What's your opinion, already got some things in your shopping basket?

Indochino Essential Charcoal & The Collar Gap

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Indochino Collar Gap
An Indochino Collar Gap - not a very bad one, but noticeable
Suit: Indochino Essential Charcoal

Indochino Collar Gaps - an annoying issue

Collar gaps are a very annoying thing - they happen on a lot of online MTM suits and they are usually not an easy fix - and it can be hard to determine why exactly a collar gap happens. What exactly is a collar gap? The way I use the term here (and that's the generally accepted definition), it is a gap caused between the shirt collar and the suit collar - especially in the back. The suit collar should hug the shirt collar and the suit should drape naturally. Sometimes a collar gap is created when you lift your arms - that's hard to avoid, but there should not be a gap when you just stand naturally.

I had been lucky for a long time with my Indochino suits and escaped the issue. But Indochino collar gaps are an issue for many readers and the topic has been raised in a number of comments. Often, you wont notice it right away. Actually I was really convinced my latest suit - the Indochino Essential Charcoal -fits really fine, until I had a little video clip made and was incredibly annoyed when watching it - my Indochino suit had a collar gap. 

Indochino Collar Gaps - what do do

Indochino collar gaps - and more generally, collar gaps on any suit, take a good tailor to fix or even require a remake. A lot of things come into play. Your posture, the way you hold your shoulders being the most important ones. You have to mention these factors on order, but often we don't have a clear idea of our body characteristics. Also, if your body changes e.g. because you start working out it can lead to the same issue. I'm a pretty slim guy, but I've been working out lately and I think that's the reason why I suddenly ran into the issue. I'm determined to go to a tailor within the next few days and hopefully get a better idea of why it happened and how it can be fixed - expect an update and some hopefully helpful insights soon. 

In the meanwhile, I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has had to deal with collar gaps before - did you find an easy fix? How did you change your measurements?

Indochino Coupon
Deals make us happy!

Update 2: the coupon code was apparently part of a series sent to selected customers and valid for one use only. If you have received one and you are not intending to use it, please share it in the comments for others to use. Thanks!

Update 1: the coupon code seems to have been disabled at the moment! I'm trying to find out more.

Hey everyone  I know many of you have not been very happy with the limited availability of deals lately - and indeed, there is not a lot of activity going on. I'm searching the web daily to see if there is a no coupon released and I found a little gem for you. You can get one of the Essential suits for $449, a $79 shirt and a $39 tie for $499 instead of $567. You can thus save $68 on your purchase - not a lot, but better 12% than nothing. Remember, there is probably also a Black Friday Deal coming up, but only in late November. 

To get the $499 deal, enter the coupon code 499BUNDLE_408593 499BUNDLE_112210 at checkout - all the items need to be in the shopping basket for it to work. The deal is supposedly valid until October 9th. 

A possible way to use the deal would be to get:
  • Essential Blue Oxford Shirt for $79
  • Solid Purple tie for $39
