The mens apparel brand known for its well-fitted khakis in all the shades of the menswear spectrum, Bonobos, will now be offering a slim option to its tailoring line of modern suits, The Foundation Suits (which come in black, navy, charcoal and light grey).
“Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion,” says Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design.
Along with the new slim fit suit options, Bonobos is also offering a three-peice suit option with introduction of vests (available in navy, charcoal and light grey).
It doesn’t get more dapper than a bespoke shirt or suit, and thanks to made-to-measure e-stores like Indochino, you have the convenience of measuring yourself on your clock. Where this Vancouver-based brand can differ from its competitors is the amount of customizability one can have with a shirt or suit, which are made from the same quality materials used by Zegna and Ralph Lauren—and with an appealing price. Seriously, you can order both a custom shirt and a two-piece suit for just over $500 (Essentials shirts start at $79, suits at $449).
Something pretty cool Indochino offers is a Tailor’s Kit, which is filled with 16 fabric swatches to show you the options in person, plus two measuring tapes. Available for $29, you then get a credit for the same amount to use towards an order. I ordered a shirt and will be focusing the online ordering experience of it.
