Huzzah, I finally convinced hubby to get a made-to-measure suit! To say this is an accomplishment would be an understatement, since (no exaggeration) it took me years to do this. A couple of not-so-cheap failed attempts at getting off the rack suits, paired with an upcoming wedding we’re going to, was just the thing to convince him to try the custom, made-to-measure route.
I always joke around that when Chris married me, he also got a personal shopper as part of the deal. But he’s notoriously hard to shop for. Although I can say I’m pretty good at women’s fashion, I can’t exactly say I’m an expert at men’s. And forget about suits — that’s some next level ish I’m not even going to try to tackle. To top it off, the upcoming wedding we’re going to is not the typical formal reception. The bride and groom are total sneakerheads and the invite states “strong sneaker game encouraged”. Ooookay then… time to get a little help because I’m not sure how to shop for a suit that’s going to work with sneakers.
A very dandy blogger friend of mine, Diego Leon, suggested I check out InStitchu. I’m so happy that he did because these guys not only sold me on it, but they got Chris on team custom suit as well. He, no joke, said that he can’t ever go back to buying them off the rack ever again.
Read on for more on our experience with InStitchu and why you should make the plunge to get a custom made suit from them as well.
