The Indochino Experience: Part I (Shopping & First Fit)

Being six foot six inches tall generally does not make for a good shopping experience for any kind of clothing and most certainly not for suiting.

In my mind, blue jeans are unlike any other kind of clothing. When you put on your jeans, you’re putting on a mindset that says you’re relaxed, even when you’re dressing them up a bit with a nice shirt and sport coat for the office. But finding jeans that fit—that really fit—is really difficult, at least…
