Indochino Summer 2014 - Cotton Suits and Shirts

Indochino Summer Collection 2014
Indochino just released the first pieces from their 2014 Summer Collection. As usual, the collection features a number of lighter suits including cotton/wool blends that are perfect for the warmer weather. The lookbook also suggests a number of additional suits and shirts to be released over the coming weeks. There are a couple of suits that look like seersucker at first sight (due to the characteristically striped pattern), but they are actually also a blend of wool and cotton (see photo above).

Prices start at $429 and go up to $749 for the 3-piece premium suits. There are also a number of new cotton shirts in a variety of solid colours and patterns from $119 (didn't spot a lower priced summer shirt). 

What's your guys first impression - anything particular that stands out? In need for a nice summer suit here, but not sure yet which one to get. 

New Linen Shirts from Indochino

Saturday, May 10, 2014

Indochino released a number of new linen shirts recently, all priced rather high from $119 to $159. Available in a number of different colours, the shirts are mostly made of cotton-linen blends, but for example the Premium White Linen Shirt is a 100% linen one. The advantage of the blended material is clearly that it will still be light, but less prone to wrinkle -  a good choice for hot summer days. They don't really look all that good on that current model, but it's up to you to improve the look. One interesting hint we do get from the model are the pants - light materials, seersucker - most likely all to come in a summer collection very soon.

The Anatomy of an Indochino Suit & Mantorii Custom Footwear Sale

Indochino Suit Construction

Indochino has released a nicely done overview on their suits today, including some interesting details.  With all the complaints about price increases, we tend to forget that Indochino has come a long way and improved a ton of important details on their suits. We all know their construction method is proper half canvas by now, which greatly improves the drape of the suit. Bemberg lining is another important factor, especially as temperatures start rising and summer is not far off - don't forget about the half-lining options (available on their blazers and I think on request on suits too) either. 

Also check out the ongoing Indochino Sale, there are still some were good bargains to be made. 

In other news, Mantorii is running an interesting promo, you can get 20% off with the coupon code specialsale. As you may know, Mantorii has recently been acquired by Australian suit makers InStitchu and they have been improving their shoes significantly over the past few months. I'm about to get another pair soon and will follow up with a review.
